NEWS: Billboard reveals the categories with the highest submissions for the Grammy Awards 2024


Media outlet Billboard has opened up the categories with the highest and lowest submissions for possible nominations ahead of the Grammy Awards 2024.

As the second round of voting by the Recording Academy for possible nominations opened on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, popular media outlet Billboard opened up on how submissions were made per category ahead of the release of the list of nominees.

It was revealed that some categories witnessed a decline in the list of nominees, a recent occurrence which can be attributed to different reasons, one of which was highlighted by Billboard was the recent introduction of an entry fee beyond five “courtesy entries.”

The rule, which, according to Billboard, was stated in the 66th Grammy Awards rules and guidelines booklet, stated, “The per-entry fee structure encourages entrants to consider the value of each entry and make mindful decisions to put forward work that they truly believe is Grammy-worthy. All professional and voting members of the Recording Academy will receive five courtesy entries every year. Any member who would feel burdened by the entry fees can request the fees be waived by reaching out to the awards department.”
