Drake And Cardi B Lead 2018 American Music Awards Nominations: See The Full List

As the annual American Music Awards draws closer, the nominations are finally in.

With Canada’s own Drake and Cardi B leading the nominations (each with eight), the show on October 9 is sure to be action-packed.

Ed Sheeran and Post Malone follow in a close second with six nominations each while Camila Cabello and Taylor Swift also have several noms to their names.

Nicki Minaj’s highly popular album Queen missed the AMAs cutoff date by only two days; same goes for Travis Scott’s Astroworld. AMAs nominations are based on data collected between Sept. 15, 2017, and Aug. 9, 2018.
