Frank Ocean scores! Six nods!

Last night, amid goofy, sexually tense intergenerational banter between co-hosts LL Cool J and Taylor Swift, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States announced the nominees for its 54th Grammy Awards, airing Sunday, February 10, on CBS.

Genre-bending R&B guy Frank Ocean scored with six nods. So did Fun., Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, and Kanye West. Meanwhile, the Black Keys and Miguel grabbed five nominations. Even Miami rap stars like the Bawse Ricky Ross and Flo Rida got named.
