Beyoncé snags three AMA nominations, while Ariana Grande gets none...

The 2014 American Music Awards is set to air on November 23rd live from Los Angeles and Beyoncé has scored three nominations.

Her categories? 'Artist Of The Year', 'Favorite Female Soul/R&B Artist' and 'Favorite Album - Soul/R&B.' The nominations, which is based on sales, airplay, activity on social networks, and video viewing, sees Ariana Grande shockingly omitted.

And that's despite fitting all criteria, slaying the entire year and more importantly, meeting the deadline (the AMAs eligibility period for singles and albums released is between December 1st of the previous year and September 1st of the current year.) Commiserations go out to her, but congrats to Beyoncé. Check out the full list of nominees below.
