Black Panther roars with early Grammy Award win for musical score

Gaga won best song written for visual media, for the A Star Is Born track Shallow; and best pop single for the ballad Joanne.

Beck has been awarded a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album at the 61st Grammy Awards.

Childish Gambino also later won "Song of the Year" for "This Is America". Her voice sounded absolutely unbelievable. Black Panther won an early Grammy Award for best score soundtrack for visual media in advance of Sunday night's awards ceremony.

Monae's groundbreaking album, "Dirty Computer", is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show, airing live at 8 p.m.

And so while the stars were hitting the red carpet in anticipation of the big ceremony, Gaga was hitting Twitter to show her appreciation for wins at both the Grammys and the BAFTAs, which also took place Sunday night in the UK.

In a charming twist, United States president Jimmy Carter won his third Grammy in the Spoken World Album category for the audio version of his best-selling book "Faith: A Journey For All". "I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more".

Oil slips as investors weigh up supply factors
U.S. distillate stocks fell by 2.3 million barrels, while inventories of other refined fuels dropped by 2.9 million barrels. The sanctions aim to block USA refiners from paying into PDVSA accounts controlled by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Women artists scored nominations in all of the top categories, after being largely muted a year ago: Gaga, Carlile, rapper Cardi B and pop futurist Janelle Monae are among the frontrunners.

He called it "the first time in Grammy history where I actually am who I thought I was for a second, so I like that". "The point is, you've already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your hometown". So if you see somebody that is hurting, don't look away.

Her six nominations are for Record of the Year ("The Joke"), Album of the Year (By the Way, I Forgive You), Song of the Year ("The Joke"), Best American Roots Performance ("The Joke"), Best American Roots Song ("The Joke") and Best Americana Album (By the Way, I Forgive You).

What will the final speech from Neil Portnow - who caused more than a little consternation a year ago when he said women needed to "step up" in order to secure broader inclusion - contain? Despite receiving eight nominations that year - the most of anyone - he went home empty-handed. But it was female artists who dominated nominations in the top categories.

Here were her full remarks: "I gotta thank God".

There will also be a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, who died last August.
