American Music Awards 2021: Complete List of Winners

American Music Awards Winners 2021

ABC is kicking off Turkey Week (that’s a thing, right?) with Sunday’s American Music Awards, but not every artist will leave the Microsoft Theater feeling as thankful as when they arrive.

Heading into the Cardi B-hosted ceremony, Olivia Rodrigo leads the pack with seven total nominations, including both Artist of the Year and New Artist of the Year. (Not too shabby for a first outing.)

The Weeknd follows closely behind with six nominations, also including Artist of the Year. Other top multi-nominated artists include Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and Giveon, each of whom received five nominations.

As always, the AMAs have assembled an impressive group of presenters to announce this year’s winners. Brandy, Madelyn Cline, Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler, Winnie Harlow, Machine Gun Kelly, Liza Koshy, Marsai Martin, Billy Porter, Anthony Ramos, JoJo Siwa and JB Smoove are all slated to present.
