Album of the Year

The Album of the Year is the most sought after award at the Grammys, given out for the first time in 1959, the award was meant for the artist alone at first, now it includes the artist, the producer, the engineer and/or mixer and the mastering engineer. The award has risen in prominence because it recognizes everyone who is involved in the making of an album, the artist, producer, engineer, and songwriter.
The highest number of wins in this category is shared by three great artists, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon who won 3 awards each in their careers as artists. Paul McCartney leads the list of most nominated performers, being nominated 9 times; Frank Sinatra comes in a close second with solo nominations and 1 nomination for a duet. Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder are the only two artists that have won the award for two consecutive years, Sinatra in 1966 and 1967, Stevie Wonder in 1974 and 1975.
