ICYMI, the nominees for music's biggest night were announced last week. And now that we've had time to properly digest all the highs (Tame Impala for Best Alternative Music Album, Leon Bridges for Best R&B Album, and Kendrick Lamar's whopping 11 nominations, among other sonic feats), there was notably something missing from the lineup: the women (besides Taylor Swift, that is).
