The former presidential candidate and actor Mark Ruffalo were nominated Tuesday in the spoken word category for the audiobook of "Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In," Sanders's 2016 tome.

Other nominees in the category include Bruce Springsteen, the late actress Carrie Fisher, astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and songwriter Shelly Peiken.

While the nomination marks the first time 76-year-old Sanders has been a Grammy contender, several political figures have snagged the coveted music award in recent years.

Former Presidents Carter and Obama are both two-time Grammy winners in the Spoken Word category. Carter won in 2015 and 2007, while the 44th ex-commander in chief picked up the award for 2008’s “The Audacity of Hope” and his 2006 book, “Dreams From my Father.”
