Bruce Springsteen Surprised Wife Patti Scialfa by Including Honeymoon Footage in Western Stars Film

  Bruce Springsteen Surprised Wife Patti Scialfa by Including Honeymoon Footage in Western Stars Film Bruce Springsteen Surprised Patti Scialfa by Including Their Honeymoon Footage in His 'Western Stars FilmSpringsteen teamed up with his longtime collaborator and fellow New Jersey native, filmmaker Thom Zimny, on the movie, in which the icon performs all 13 songs from his latest album alongside his wife Patti Scialfa and a 30-piece backing orchestra. The concert takes place inside the house that Bruce built — not Met Life Stadium where he’s performed dozens of four-hour rock shows, but quite literally his home, the renovated barn on his family’s property in Colts Neck, New Jersey, which has been converted into a haven for hosting loved ones.

First-time nominees Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X are the toast of the 2020 Grammy Awards, earning nominations in all four major categories including album, record and song of the year, as well as best new artist. 

It's a surprising yet welcome change from past years, when a reliable list of familiar faces have repeatedly dominated music's biggest night. But there are some stadium-filling stars and Top 40 staples who were passed over or snubbed entirely for top honors at the upcoming show, which will be held Jan. 26 at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

NEW YORK (AP) — L may typically stand for “loser” but artists like Lizzo, Lady Gaga, Lil Nas X and Lewis Capaldi are likely to score big next week when the Grammy nominations are unveiled, with expected nods in key categories, from album of the year to record and song of the year. The Associated Press breaks down who might score multiple nominations on Wednesday, including performers whose names don’t start with the letter L.

Taylor Swift

The 10-time Grammy winner made history in 2016 when she became the first female artist in the awards' history to win album of the year twice, for "1989" and "Fearless" (a feat managed a year later by Adele, with "25" and "21"). But the Grammys' love for Swift has cooled recently: her divisive "Reputation" earned just one nod in 2018 for best pop vocal album, and this year, she garnered only three nominations, including song of the year for "Lover."

Her critically beloved album "Lover," released just before the Grammy eligibility cutoff in late August, failed to land a best album nod, but showed up in best pop vocal album. Meanwhile, her pro-LGBTQ anthem "You Need to Calm Down" eked out a nomination for best pop solo performance, but missed out in record of the year.

Bruce Springsteen

The 20-time-winning rock icon has been a reliable Grammy presence since 1984, and was honored in 2013 by the Recording Academy's charity arm as MusiCares Person of the Year. The Boss returned this summer with the country-tinged "Western Stars," which marked his first album of solo material since 2012's "Wrecking Ball." But voters didn't welcome him back with open arms, snubbing "Western Stars" and Springsteen entirely. 

"A Star is Born"

The Recording Academy went, well, gaga for Lady Gaga's heart-swelling "Shallow" with Bradley Cooper, nominating it for four Grammys including record and song of the year, and awarding it two (for best pop duo/group performance and song written for visual media). But the shower of acclaim for the Oscar-winning duet didn't spell further love for the "A Star is Born" soundtrack, which was released last October and was otherwise eligible for the 2020 Grammys. The movie's music was passed over for album of the year, although Gaga still got a song-of-the-year nod for "Always Remember Us This Way," a ballad performed by her character Ally in the film. 

Taylor Swift Shows Off Her Six AMA Trophies as She Says ‘Have I Told You Lately That I Love You'

The twice-nominated alt-pop queen scored her first No. 1 as a solo artist on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in January with "Without Me," a searingly confessional breakup ballad. But Halsey was curiously shut out of this year's nominations entirely, despite being widely predicted to earn double nods for record and song of the year. 

Maren Morris

Also missing from this year's nominations: Morris' "Girl," which picked up best album at last week's Country Music Awards, and notched the biggest first-week streams for a country female artist in March, according to Billboard. As one of the most foremost women in the genre right now, Morris has been a steady presence at the Grammys in recent years: earning nine nominations and winning one in 2016 for best country solo performance ("My Church"). But her acclaimed sophomore album was skipped over in major categories, with Morris landing just one nomination for country duo/group performance (for "Common" with Brandi Carlile).

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

The Grammys love a team-up. Just look at recent record-of-the-year winners "Uptown Funk," by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson, and "Get Lucky," by Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. Mendes and Cabello are both pop hit-makers and past Grammy nominees, so their steamy, Latin-flavored duet "Senorita" should've been an obvious pick for voters, especially given the song's success (reaching No. 1 on the Hot 100 this summer). But the real-life couple will have to settle for best pop duo/group performance, where "Senorita" earned its only nom. 

Hip hop 

Rap has been a consistent presence in the Grammys' top categories, with Cardi B ("Invasion of Privacy"), Kendrick Lamar (the "Black Panther" soundtrack) and Drake ("Scorpion") all scoring best album nods this past year. But with the exception of Lizzo, hip hop was completely barred from all four major categories. DaBaby, Tyler, the Creator and past best new artist recipient Chance the Rapper only earned nods in rap categories, while breakthrough artist Megan Thee Stallion was totally ignored.
