Maddow was nominated for Best Spoken Word Album with her book, "Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power." She shares the category nomination with Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama.
A number of politicians have been nominated and subsequently won Grammy Awards in this category before. President Barack Obama won in 2008 with his book "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream." He also won in 2006 with his book "Dreams From My Father."
Clinton picked up the prestigious award one year earlier—in 2005—with his book "My Life." Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also won in this category in 1997 with her book "It Takes A Village."
The 2013 Grammy Awards will take place on Feb. 10 on CBS.
