You knew there'd be room to protest the snubbing of women even before the 2018 ACM Awards nominations were announced, and the rollout didn't disappoint. But this snub happened in an unexpected way.

Blake Shelton and Florida Georgia Line were also snubbed by ACM voters, but there are some pleasant surprises. An entire category proves that voters do indeed value artistry, even when commercial success isn't apparent. A Male Vocalist of the Year nominee caused a little squeal. And all those guesses we had for ACM host? We kinda whiffed!

Find the most surprising nominations and the artists and songs that were no-doubt-about-it snubbed with a capital NUBBED. The 2018 ACM Awards will air at 8PM ET on CBS on April 15. Remember, the best way to watch the ACM Awards is on TV with ToC on your phone!
