Frank Ocean might be having a glass of celebratory champagne right about now to celebrate his six Grammy nominations, but not every artist was so lucky.

Carly Rae Jepsen seemed like a shoo-in for Best New Artist. So why did the Recording Academy leave her off the final list?

Sure, “Call Me Maybe” was nominated for some big prizes, including Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, but Jepsen failed to get a Best New Artist nod, which may imply that Grammy voters don't expect her to stick around.

Meanwhile, her mentor Justin Bieber was completely snubbed by the Academy when his album Believe failed to score any nominations. “This time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE,” his manager Scooter Braun tweeted. “The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one.”

Then there was Nicki Minaj, whose genre-crossing album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, was overlooked in both the pop and rap categories. It looks like for Grammy voters, sometimes less is more.

As for One Direction, the British boy band was snubbed in the Best New Artist category, despite past boy bands -- like the Jonas Brothers and Backstreet Boys -- scoring a nomination years prior.

    Omfg i love One Direction too! They ignore the hates, so why do haters even try...They're just jealous and have no life, just a hater behind a computer screen, probably a little 11 year old...

    Carly Rae is not country. Would Waylon say she is country? Would Merle, Willie, Hank, Dolly, Loretta or Conway? Its time to kick these pop singers like Taylor swift to the curb and over to the pop chart!!

    Whatever. This is exactly what the Board needs to do to win back some respect for the Grammys. Well done, I say!
