I overlooked one very important fact when the Grammy Award nominations were announced two nights ago. Beyonce has set a lofty mark by tying the all-time record for the most Grammy nominations in a single year by a female artist. The mark of 10 was previously set in 1999 by the Fugees' Lauryn Hill when she released her album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Most of Beyonce's accolades are for her work on I Am...Sasha Fierce, but she has also been recognized with a nomination for her singing on the Cadillac Records soundtrack. The title for most Grammy nominations in a single year by any artist is jointly held by Michael Jackson who set the record of 12 in 1983 and Babyface who tied it in 1992. Just in case anyone is counting, Beyonce now has a total of 26 Grammy Award nominations apart from her recordings with Destiny's Child.
