Hugh Jackman, an Emmy and Tony victor, won his first Grammy, picking up best compilation soundtrack for visual media for "The Greatest Showman".
Women are also hoping to get their due after the head of the Recording Academy - which includes more than 13,000 music professionals - told them a year ago to "step up" if they wanted to do better on Grammys night.
Untouchable pop star Ariana Grande - who dropped her highly anticipated album Thank U, Next just before the Grammys - slammed producer Ken Ehrlich over her decision not to perform, suggested he was "lying" about her readiness.
Grande is nominated for two awards and could miss the chance of giving a speech onstage if she wins. Christian singer Lauren Daigle also won Grammys.
The Grammy Awards air live on CBS on February 10, at 5:00 p.m.

Adesanya, who fights out of New Zealand, is one of the UFC's most promising prospects, taking on an all-time great in Silva. Kelvin Gastelum is trying to put a positive spin on losing his chance to fight for the middleweight title at UFC 234.

"This is going to be a special Grammys".
"Back in the Bronx, music gave me a reason to dance", Lopez added.
"You come to these things as an artist and you're juggling so many things and there's so much pressure on you", she told reporters, as ABC News noted.
Monae's groundbreaking album, "Dirty Computer", is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Women also have a strong presence in those top categories, including Lady Gaga, SZA, Maren Morris and Ella Mai.
Wizards trade Otto Porter to Bulls for Bobby Portis, Jabari Parker
Others told the site that Wall would have been pleased if Porter was moved earlier in the season, when the team started 2-9. Either this was a misdirection move by the Wizards front office, or Wall's injury significantly changed their thinking.
In the Best New Artist category, six of the eight nominees are women.
"This is just the beginning of moving to a more inclusive future", Monae said. Speaking about the different genres of music, the women said that all styles need to be represented and respected. He later acknowledged that it was a "poor choice of words", and his much-criticized remarks forced the academy to launch a new task force focused on inclusion and diversity.
The lead up to this year's Grammys hasn't been completely smooth though. The performance definitely feels like a statement, even though the set (which, in a pre-show interview with Ryan Seacrest, Cabello said was supposed to evoke a family home - her grandmother's, I think) felt a little Broadway.
A source close to the singer told CNN that the show's "producers were dictating what songs she could sing".
