Even people not obsessed with music are likely asking some of the big questions set to be answered Friday morning, when the Recording Academy announces its nominations for the 61st Grammy Awards.

Will Taylor Swift earn her fourth nod for album of the year - more than Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, Prince or Madonna have received - with the polarizing "Reputation," which sold well but drew mixed reviews?

Will Cardi B become only the third female rapper in history (after Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliott) to be nominated for that prize with her blockbuster debut, "Invasion of Privacy"?

And speaking of women: Will the academy do a better job of recognizing their work overall than it did at the 60th Grammys, in which a dearth of female nominees resulted in an awkward interview in which academy President Neil Portnow infamously advised women to "step up"?

But these major story lines aren't the only ones to follow as we set out toward next year's ceremony, scheduled for Feb. 10 in Los Angeles. Here are three more.

SCREEN TIME

In the 1950s and '60s, Broadway cast recordings and Hollywood film soundtracks were regularly nominated for album of the year. Now it's now been more than 15 years since such a collection - "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" in 2002 - took the Grammys' most prestigious award.

Grammy Nominations Give Women the Votes – Except for Those Beyoncé and Taylor Swift Snubs

Grammy Nominations Give Women the Votes – Except for Those Beyoncé and Taylor Swift Snubs The 1976 disco song "More, More, More" wasn't eligible for this year's Grammy Awards, but it might as well have been the Recording Academy's theme song when nominations were announced on Friday morning. There were more nominees in the Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year categories. More Best New Artist contenders. More women in the top categories. And even more high-profile snubs, with longtime Grammy favorites Taylor Swift and Beyoncé passed over in the categories where they once reigned supreme. These are the freshly supersized Grammys, with eight nominees instead of five in the four general categories that are the show's centerpieces.

NEW YORK (AP) — The nominations for the 2019 Grammy Awards, originally planned for Wednesday, will now be announced Friday .

Yet movie music stands a good chance of resurging this year, in part because the major categories will have eight nominees each, up from the five they've had for decades.

First, there's the creatively adventurous (and commercially successful) set of songs Kendrick Lamar put together to accompany "Black Panther," which could pick up an album of the year nod as well as a nomination for record of the year for Lamar and SZA's hit duet "All the Stars."

Then there's "The Greatest Showman," one of the year's biggest-selling LPs. It's unlikely to turn up in the album of the year category, but the movie's "This Is Me" - written by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul - has a shot in song of the year.

Should that happen, "This Is Me" would likely be up against yet another silver-screen artifact in "Shallow," Lady Gaga's Bic-flicking power ballad from "A Star Is Born." (Due to its release just days after the Grammys' Sept. 30 eligibility deadline, the full "Star" soundtrack won't be in contention until 2019.)

PROBLEM IN RAP

The Grammys have never had an easy relationship with hip-hop, a genre whose dominance of pop music in the last decade has been clear everywhere except at music's most important awards show.

But if the academy is looking to correct for its blind spot, 2018 has made the job only tougher: This year some of rap's most consequential output was by artists we might describe as problematic, including Kanye West, whose intriguing "Ye" album came out amid his extended bromance with President Trump.

Indeed, West's trollish behavior over the past 12 months may prove to have been too much for the music industry's limousine-liberal establishment. But to shun one of pop's prime movers seems equally fraught - one reason Grammy voters might choose to honor West with a lower-profile producer of the year nod for his impressive studio work on "Ye" along with albums by Pusha-T, Nas and Kids See Ghosts.

Yet voters will still need to grapple with how best to recognize 6ix9ine and the late XXXTentacion, both of whom connected with huge audiences despite (or perhaps because of) long histories of alleged criminal abuse.

YOUNG, NOT DUMB

Nearly as frustrating as the Grammys' overlooking hip-hop is the way the ceremony regularly minimizes pop aimed at young listeners - especially young girls.

In the past that's meant snubs of Miley Cyrus and the "Frozen" soundtrack. One Direction, to name another victim, went on hiatus a few years ago without having earned a nomination, which feels particularly egregious given that the hugely popular boy band often sounded like it was covering the classic-rock songs that academy members love.

On Friday we'll see if those folks were able to shake their old-fashioned ideas about serious art (and who makes it) to appreciate thoughtful, clever, intensely emotional music by the likes of Ariana Grande, Troye Sivan and Charlie Puth.
