    Was Lady GaGa even eligible for anything?  When was the cut off date for this batch of awards?

    Well Roar was released the same day as Applause.

    This must really burn for Justin.  I mean, weren’t the VMAs essentially a JT concert?

    “Mirrors” is a song that when I heard it I immediately thought, yup, Record of the Year.  Like “Somebody That I Used to Know” last year.  But nope.

    No Lorde in Best New Artist is by far the biggest surprise/snub in my eyes

    No Gaga ain’t a surprise. It was the most expected thing you can expect. I actually predicted Roar in SOTY, so that’s far from a surprise too. Some may not have predicted Katy, but she was always a possibility.

    I’d say Justin shut out of GF. The bad press of the past few weeks really took a toll.
    Lorde snubbed in BNA is the second biggest shock, especially since she did so well in noms. I bet she wins SOTY now as compensation.

    While I was surprised that Justin Timberlake was absent from the general field (he seemed like the safest bet for a nomination), no nomination is ever a sure-thing, and I had a sneaking suspicion that he wouldn’t do as well as we were all expecting come nominations time.

    I’m really glad now that I stuck to my guns that Imagine Dragons would get into ROTY (and that Kendrick Lamar would get into AOTY, who never seemed to do so well over here at GoldDerby).

    The Sara Bareilles Album of the Year nomination, however, came out of absolutely nowhere. Mediocre sales, no really big hit singles, average reviews. If you would have asked to to rank my top 50 contenders for AOTY, she would not have been one of them. In my opinion, her inclusion is by far the biggest surprise. I suppose every year there is one head-scratching nomination in this category (fun, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Dave Matthews Band, Ne-Yo, Herbie Hancock), although we all know that slot belonged to JT. Is it possible that submitting both volumes of The 20/20 Experience together backfired?

    JT being snubbed in the GF is by far the most shocking. And what bad press did he get the past few weeks? Also, you need big, juicy pop hits to crack the GF now. I feel like JT’s single choices underwhelmed this era. Suit & Tie underwhelmed & Mirrors was sort of overshadowed by bigger singles from other artists; and I personally don’t like the song. Also, it didn’t help that Pt. 2 of the album is horrible. Pt. 1 was good enough for wins, but the label bungled the single choices. Pt. 2 is simply B-sides that shouldn’t have seen the light of day.

    Lorde feels like a one-hit wonder. I’m surprised she got snubbed in BNA. Maybe voters won’t give her wins this year so she can get in BNA next year. What a dumb rule!

    And Janelle Monae being completely snubbed is AWFUL. Electric Lady is a sensational album. But she has limited appeal & commercial success & the Grammys are all about popularity so there you go.

    It has to be Sara Bareilles’ nomination for Album of the Year. I never heard of that album before. That’s how out of nowhere it was.

    I was the only one that I know of who predicted “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City” to get into AOTY. Based on the history of this category, at least one urban album gets in every year.

    Yes, but there’s The Heist. I thought Kendrick would get originally, as I thought he would have a lot of loyal branch support, especially after the year he had. I was pursuaded to give up on that based on some posters who kept insisting Kendrick wouldn’t appeal to voters much and that The Heist was the album with the best shot. And yet, kendrick actually has more field noms than Macklemore.  Guess I wasn’t wrong after all. Should’ve trusted my gut.

    I’m glad we both predicted Lamar! 🙂 I’m very surprised more people weren’t predicting him! Best reviewed album of eligibility period, 1 million + in sales, 3 Top 40 hit singles, and as you mentioned, the history of at least one rap album getting nominated most years. I had a funny feeling that there would be 2 rap albums in this year, and if there were 2, that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis would be the other, but I wasn’t willing to shake Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, or that rock slot (for which I was predicting Vampire Weekend, with David Bowie as a potential spoiler), and I knew that Taylor Swift had a very good chance of getting in. It was a crowded year, so I suppose surprise snubs were bound to happen.
