The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Fun., Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West all tied for most nominations, getting six each.
The Lumineers are up for Best New Artist (against Alabama Shakes, Fun., Hunter Hayes, and Frank Ocean), as well as Best Americana Record.
That obnoxious Gotye song is up for Record of the Year along with tracks by the Black Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Fun., Frank Ocean, and Taylor Swift.
LMFAO got a nod for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Barf.
Best Alternative Music Album nominees include The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do by Fiona Apple; Biophilia by Björk; Making Mirrors by Gotye; Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. by M83; and Bad As Me by Tom Waits.
Best Rock Performance nominees include Mumford & Sons and Coldplay, which is weird because neither of those bands rock very much.

And Kanye West has two songs up for Best Rap Song—"Niggas in Paris" (with Jay-Z), and "Mercy" (featuring Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz).
