Russian opera singer Dmitry Khvorostovsky was nominated posthumously for a Grammy award in the category "Best award for best record". This is reported on the official website of the competition.

Hvorostovsky, together with director Konstantin Orbelyan, were included in the list of candidates for the execution of Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto. The prize in this category is awarded to the director, the main performers and the producer of the album. Conductors Sebastian Wagle, John Adams, Michael Christie and Christoph Rousset declare themselves to be his. The winners will be announced on February 10, 2019 at the 61st ceremony at the Staples Center complex (Los Angeles).

According to URA.RU, the singer was nominated for a posthumous Grammy. However, in the "Best Classical Vocal Album" category, the award in 2018 was awarded to the Canadian singer Barbara Hannigan.

Hvorostovsky died on 22 November 2017 at 55 years in London from a brain tumor after a long struggle with the disease. About his death, as he wrote the portal "Dni.ru", was reported by the Russian singer Dmitrij Malikov.
