Recording Academy Adjusts Eligibility Period for 2024 Grammys

The Recording academy for Grammy awards after listening to concerns from some members of the music community, we have decided to amend the end date of the previously announced eligibility period,” Harvey Mason jr. wrote.


Five weeks after informing their members that the eligibility period for the 66th Grammy Awards would end on Aug. 31, one month earlier than usual, the Recording Academy has pushed that date back two weeks to Sept. 15.

Harvey Mason jr., the Academy’s CEO, announced the latest change in another message to members on Thursday (April 6): “A few weeks ago, we communicated a change to the eligibility period for the 66th Grammy Awards. This change benefits our awards process and grants us flexibility throughout Grammy season – specifically related to our nominations announcement timeline and the booking of the Grammy telecast, Premiere Ceremony, Recording Academy Honors Presented by the Black Music Collective, and other important celebrations throughout Grammy Week.

After listening to concerns from some members of the music community, we have decided to amend the end date of the previously-announced eligibility period. The eligibility deadline for the 66th Annual Grammy Awards will be extended by two weeks, to Friday, September 15, 2023.

“We care about the impact of this date change on our community and make this adjustment in the spirit of partnership and collaboration.”

The Grammy eligibility year extended from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30 every year for decades – from the 20th annual Grammy Awards (which covered the period from Oct. 1, 1976, through Sept. 30, 1977) through the 51st annual Grammy Awards (Oct. 1, 2007, through Sept. 30, 2008).

The schedule has been more irregular since then. Here are the outliers:

52nd annual Grammy Awards: Oct. 1, 2008 through Aug. 31, 2009 (11 months)

53rd annual Grammy Awards: Sept. 1, 2009 through Sept. 30, 2010 (13 months)

62nd annual Grammy Awards: Oct. 1, 2018 through Aug. 31, 2019 (11 months)

63rd annual Grammy Awards: Sept. 1, 2019 through Aug. 31, 2020 (12 months)
