Here are your comedians nominated for 59th Annual Grammy Awards in 2017

Amy Schumer scored big with Grammy nominations in two categories this morning — not only for Best Comedy Album for the audio version of her HBO special, Live at the Apollo, but also in Best Spoken Word Album for her narration of her memoir, The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo.

Patton Oswalt, who this fall won the Emmy for his special, also received a Grammy nomination for it.

Notice that the Grammy nom for David Cross also has modified the spelling of his title since you last remembered it, too.

And here are all of your comedians you should congratulate for Grammy nominations today. The Grammy Awards will be handed out Feb. 12, 2017, on CBS!
