Taylor Swift is probably consoling her new beau Harry Styles tonight.

Harry's band One Direction failed to earn a single Grammy nomination, despite their worldwide popularity. Justin Bieber and PSY were also completely snubbed.

And Bieber's manager Scooter Braun was not happy.

"I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one," Braun tweeted after the announcement. "this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with. "

He added, "so to all those nominated...you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB."

As for Swifty, she earned three nominations. Her break-up anthem "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" is up for Record of the Year and she also earned two noms for her song "Safe and Sound" from "The Hunger Games" soundtrack. Her new album, "Red," won't be eligible until 2014.

Rihanna was shut out from the major categories, only earning nods for pop solo performance for "Where Have You Been," rap-sung collaboration nomination with mentor Jay-Z for "Talk That Talk" and short-form music video for "We Found Love."

The top nominees? A mix of veterans and newcomers: Jay-Z, Kanye West, Fun., Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean and The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach all earned six nods a piece.
