The 48th annual Grammy nominations were announced today in Los Angeles, and among the 108 categories were some perennial gay favorites.

For Record of the Year, resurgent diva Mariah Carey was nominated for "We Belong Together" as well as the fashionable Gwen Stefani for "Hollaback Girl." Kanye West, who made headlines several times this year by publicly calling for an end to homophobia in the rap music industry, saw his single "Gold Digger" receive a nod. The full releases of all three nominees were nominated for Album of the Year as well: Carey for The Emancipation of Mimi, Stefani for Love. Angel. Music. Baby, and West for Late Registration. Carey's "We Belong Together" was nominated for Song of the Year.

Kelly Clarkson, Kylie Minogue, and Destiny's Child were nominated in pop, dance, and R&B categories, respectively. The Grammys will take place February 8 in Los Angeles. (
