It has been a seriously big year for Miley Cyrus but voting members of the National Academy of Recordings Arts and Sciences weren’t swayed by all of the hype. They opted to leave her out in the cold.
While many considered her a contender for her two hit singles ‘We Can’t Stop’ and ‘Wrecking Ball,’ she will not be a player when the 2014 Grammy Awards hand out the gold statues in 82 categories on January 26 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Her album ‘BANGERZ’ was released too late to be considered because the period of eligibility spans October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013.
On a more positive note, Cyrus is a front-runner to be TIME magazine’s Person of the Year, with the announcement set to be released on December 11. A poll has been underway for the person who most influenced the news this year for better or worse.

One entertainer who is undoubtedly feeling under-appreciated is Kanye West, who was overlooked in all of the weighty categories and received nods in the less prestigious categories of Best Rap Album for ‘Yeezus’ and Best Rap Song for ‘New Slaves.’ His pal Jay-Z picked up nine nominations. OUCH!
