Grammys 2015: See the (nearly) full list of nominees here!

UPDATE: During CBS's "A Very Grammy Christmas" concert special, the nominees for the Album of the Year award were announced, and they are: "Morning Phase," Beck; "Beyoncé," Beyoncé; "x," Ed Sheeran; "In The Lonely Hour," Sam Smith; and "G I R L," Pharrell Williams. This brings Beyoncé's total 2015 tally to six nominations, Ed Sheeran's to three nominations and Pharrell Williams's to four nominations (Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran were each nominated for an award that was not included in the morning telecast; Pharrell Williams was also nominated for other awards for his work as a producer.)

UPDATE #2: According to an update from Billboard, Beyoncé surpassed Dolly Parton as the most-nominated female in Grammy history last year, as the the outlet "neglected to count her credit as a producer on the 'Dreamgirls' soundtrack. This means she has now passed producer David Foster and is the sixth most-nominated artist overall."

The nominations for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards were announced by Ed Sheeran and Pharrell Williams early Friday morning on "CBS This Morning," according to Billboard. Sheeran scored a nomination for his album "x" in the Best Pop Vocal category, while Williams racked up three nominations himself - one for his album "G I R L" in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category and two for his single "Happy," in the Best Music Video and Best Pop Solo Performance categories.

Beyoncé also scored several nominations this year, bypassing Dolly Parton and making her the most-nominated woman in the award show's history, according to Billboard and the Huffington Post. Parton and Beyoncé were neck-and-neck last year with 46 nominations each, but after today's announcement, the pop songstress's current tally stands at 51.
