|Grammy Award for Album of the Year|
|Awarded for||Quality vocal or instrumental recording albums|
|Presented by||National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences|
|Currently held by||Harry Styles – Harry's House (2023)|
The Grammy Award for Album of the Year is an award presented by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales, chart position, or critical reception." Commonly known as "The Big Award", Album of the Year is the most prestigious award category at the Grammy Awards, and is one of the four general field categories alongside Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year that have been presented annually since the 1st Annual Grammy Awards in 1959.
American singer-songwriters Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and Taylor Swift have each won Album of the Year award three times, more than any other nominee. Sinatra became the first nominee to win the award in back-to-back years, Wonder is known for winning the award three times in four years, and Swift is the first woman to win the award both two and three times.
Over the years, the rules on who was presented with an award have changed:
- 1959–1965: Artist only.
- 1966–1998: Artist and producer.
- 1999–2002: Artist, producer, and recording engineer or mixer.
- 2003–2017: Artist, featured artist, producer, mastering engineer, and recording engineer or mixer.
- 2018–2020: Artist, producer, songwriter (of new material), mastering engineer, and recording engineer or mixer (only those who were credited on at least 33% playing time of the album)
- 2021–2023: Artist, featured artist/s, producer, songwriter (of new material), mastering engineer and recording engineer or mixer. (regardless of credited playing time)
- 2024–present: Artist, featured artist/s producer, songwriter (of new material), mastering engineer, and recording engineer or mixer (only those who were credited on at least 20% playing time of the album)
Album of the Year is awarded for a whole album, and the award is presented to the artist, featured artist, songwriter, producer, recording engineer, and mastering engineer with significant contributions to that album. The similarly titled Record of the Year is awarded for a single or for one track from an album. This award goes to the performing artist, the producer, recording engineer and/or mixer for that song. 
Tom Coyne (as mastering engineer) and Şerban Ghenea and John Hanes (as engineers/mixers) are the most frequent winners in this category with four awards. They are followed by Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Taylor Swift (as performers); David Foster, Daniel Lanois, Phil Ramone, and Ryan Tedder (as record producers); Tom Elmhirst and Mike Piersante (as engineers/mixers); and Bob Ludwig (as mastering engineer) with three victories each. Coyne, Ghenea, Hanes, and Ludwig are the only people to win the award in three consecutive years. Paul McCartney leads all performers with nine nominations: five as a member of The Beatles, three for solo albums, and one as a member of Wings. Sinatra leads solo performers with eight nominations: seven for solo albums and one for a duet album. Barbra Streisand has the most nominations amongst female artists with six.
The first woman to win the award was Judy Garland in 1962, for Judy at Carnegie Hall. Taylor Swift was the first solo female artist to win the award twice and thrice. Swift and Adele are the only women to win the award more than once for their own albums; Swift won for Fearless, 1989, and Folklore, and Adele won for 21 and 25. Swift was also nominated for Red and Evermore, and Adele was nominated for 30. Lauryn Hill, Norah Jones and Alison Krauss each won twice as lead artist for their respective albums, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Come Away with Me and Raising Sand (Krauss' collaboration album with Robert Plant); Hill won her second award as a producer of her collaboration on Santana's Supernatural (featured artists on non-soundtrack albums did not share in the award before 2008), while Jones won as a featured artist on Herbie Hancock's River: The Joni Letters, and Krauss was featured on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? – Soundtrack. Besides Swift and Adele, only three female artists have received nominations after previously winning: Barbra Streisand was nominated again for People, My Name Is Barbra, Color Me Barbra, Guilty and The Broadway Album, after winning previously for The Barbra Streisand Album; Bonnie Raitt was nominated for Luck of the Draw and Longing in Their Hearts, after winning previously for Nick of Time; and Billie Eilish was nominated for Happier Than Ever after winning previously for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Billie Eilish is the youngest main credit artist to win in the category, winning for her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in 2020 at age 18. She surpassed Taylor Swift, who won in 2010 at age 20 for her second album Fearless. The Peasall Sisters, Sarah, Hannah and Leah, are the category's youngest credited winners, winning for their contributions to the O Brother, Where Art Thou? – Soundtrack at ages 13, 9, and 7 respectively. Leah Peasall is the youngest winner of any Grammy in any category. The youngest person to make an appearance on an Album of the Year is Stevie Wonder's daughter Aisha Morris, who appeared on "Isn't She Lovely?" off the album Songs in the Key of Life as an infant.
Christopher Cross and Billie Eilish are the only artists to receive the Grammys for Album of the Year as well as Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist in a single ceremony. Adele was the first artist to win the award for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist on separate occasions, and the first woman to accomplish this feat. Only five artists have won both Album of the Year and Best New Artist in the same year: Bob Newhart (The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart in 1961), Christopher Cross (Christopher Cross in 1981), Lauryn Hill (The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in 1999), Norah Jones (Come Away with Me in 2003) and Billie Eilish (When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in 2020).
Frank Sinatra's Come Dance with Me! was the first album by a traditional pop artist to win, Stan Getz's & João Gilberto's Getz/Gilberto was the first by a jazz artist, The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was the first by a rock and roll artist, Glen Campbell's By the Time I Get to Phoenix was the first by a country artist, Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was the first by a hip hop artist, Arcade Fire's The Suburbs was the first by an indie rock artist, and Daft Punk's Random Access Memories was the first by an electronic music artist.
Only two artists have won the award in two consecutive years: Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder. Sinatra won in 1966 (September of My Years) and 1967 (A Man and His Music) and Wonder won in 1974 (Innervisions) and 1975 (Fulfillingness' First Finale). Lauryn Hill won as a producer in 2000 after winning in 1999 as an artist and producer; Bruno Mars won as an artist and producer in 2018, after winning in 2017 as a producer.
Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Barbra Streisand and Lady Gaga are the only artists to receive three consecutive nominations for Album of the Year. Billy Joel and Kendrick Lamar are the only performers with four nominations for consecutive studio albums in this category. The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Bonnie Raitt, Dixie Chicks, Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Adele received three nominations.
Stevie Wonder and Adele are the only artists to win the award for consecutive studio albums in this category, winning for Innervisions and Fulfillingness' First Finale and Songs in the Key of Life; and 21 and 25, respectively.
Quincy Jones, Lauryn Hill and Bruno Mars are the only performers to win the award both as main-credit artists and as record producers, winning as lead artists for their albums Back on the Block, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and 24K Magic, and as producers for Thriller by Michael Jackson, Supernatural by Santana, and 25 by Adele, respectively.
To date, there have been four "live" albums to win the award: Judy at Carnegie Hall, The Concert for Bangladesh, and two MTV Unplugged albums (Eric Clapton's and Tony Bennett's), which were performed in front of a small live audience. One television soundtrack recording,The Music from Peter Gunn, has won. Two comedy albums have also won this category: The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart and The First Family.
Only six artists have won twice as the main credited artist: Paul Simon (1976, 1987), U2 (1988, 2006), and Adele (2012, 2017), with three artists winning it three times as the main credit: Frank Sinatra (1960, 1966, 1967), Stevie Wonder (1974, 1975, 1977), and Taylor Swift (2010, 2016, 2021).
From 1995 to 2021, members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences nominated their choices for album of the year. A list of the top twenty records was given to the Nominations Review Committee, a specially selected group of anonymous members, who then selected the top five records to gain a nomination in the category in a special ballot. The rest of the members then voted on a winner from the five nominees. In 2018, it was announced the number of nominated albums would be increased to eight. In 2021, it was announced that the Nomination Review Committees would be disbanded, and the final nominees for album of the year would be decided by votes from members. Starting in 2022, the number of nominees in the category increased to 10.

^[I] Each year is linked to the article about the Grammy Awards held that year.
- A ^Only Houston and the producers of her tracks received the award. None of the other artists who appeared on The Bodyguard soundtrack (Kenny G, Aaron Neville, Lisa Stansfield, The S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M., Curtis Stigers, Joe Cocker, Sass Jordan, and the uncredited instrumental ensemble that performed Alan Silvestri's theme) shared in the award, nor did the producers of these other artists' tracks (other than those who also produced Houston's tracks).
- B ^Other artists who appeared on soundtrack (James Carter and the Prisoners, Harry McClintock & The Stanley Brothers) were not included as their recordings long preceded the soundtrack; the only members of those acts still alive at that time were James Carter (the only "Prisoner" from the Alan Lomax recording who was located) and Ralph Stanley (separately credited for recording "O Death" specifically for the soundtrack). The Soggy Bottom Boys aren't credited as a group, but Dan Tyminski (the singing voice of George Clooney in the film) is credited as a member of Union Station, while the other two members (Harley Allen & Pat Enright) are credited individually. Chris Sharp, Mike Compton, Sam Bush & Stuart Duncan are not listed as lead or featured artists on any track, but were included for their instrumental credits on the album.
