As of 2021, the two most honored albums at the Grammy Awards were “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb” by U2 and “Supernatural” by Santana. The albums, released in 2004 and 1999, respectively, had each received nine awards as of 2021.
The Grammy Awards are an annual awards ceremony honoring outstanding achievements in the music industry. Held since 1959 and broadcast live from the Beverly Hills Hotel in California, the show has been garnering the attention of music lovers from around the world for over half a century. In 2012, the televised event was watched by roughly 39 million people in the United States, but since then, the number of Grammy Awards viewers has steadily decreased. Meanwhile, 2012 was also the year that male and female categories were merged, and the overall number of Grammy Awards categories was cut from 109 to 78.
Who has won the most Grammy Awards?
Over the past six decades, several hundred artists from various music genres have been nominated for a Grammy Award. While the list of nominees is reshuffled every year, some names have become permanent fixtures of the event: Quincy Jones and Jay-Z have both received a total of 80 nominations during their careers, making them the artists with the most Grammy nominations of all time. Quincy Jones also ranks second behind Hungarian composer Georg Solti for the most Grammy Award wins in the history of the telecast.
