    Isn’t it a travesty that Bjork has not won a single grammy?

    They’re countless.

    But one that would actually seem like an album the Grammys would really like, was Janet’s  Velvet Rope. Which was completely ignored apart from a Music Video nod, despite great critical acclaim and solid sales.

    There are a ton for Album of the Year.I was listening to Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots last night, and was crying at the utter perfection. Quality-wise, it kicks the living s*** out of Come Away With me. To me, that, Funeral, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, The Bends, Illmatic, Disintegration, The Queen Is Dead, The Velvet Underground & Nico, The Dark Side of the Moon, and on and on.

    On another thread I read a comment that said that men are really the only legends and comebacks that Grammys appreciate when they’re past their prime. When it comes to this thread, that comment says Loretta Lynn’s Van Lear Rose to me. Which is an album I always write down whenever this thread comes up.

    I love that album and I discovered it thanks to GoldDerby, and I was shocked when it didn’t show up anywhere else but in the Country categories. Not only did it have a true Grammy winning living legend as an artist but also a current Grammy darling as a producer, leader of the band and guest vocalist. It’s just ridiculous that it didn’t get a nomination, the album is just great.

    I agree about Loretta Lynn’s Van Lear Rose. However, one thing that may have contributed to its snub was the singles was ignored completely by country radio.

    But I would also say the fact that Sara Evans has never won a Grammy, despite hits such as “No Place that Far”, “Born to Fly”, “Suds in the Bucket”, and “A Little Bit Stronger”, its a true travesty.

    To me, Trace Adkins should have at least gotten one for his song named “All I Ask For”, Kenny Chesney should have gotten one for his song named “Better As A Memory”, Toby Keith should have gotten one for his song named “Love Me If You Can”. And then of course the writers of “In Color” should have been given the Best Country Song award in early 2009.

    God bless you and them and Trace and Kenny and Toby always!!!

    I Get So  Lonely from The Velvet Rope was nominated for R&B Female in 1999.

    Vanessa Williams has received 11 Grammy nominations between 1989 and 1998 and none of these nominations resulted in a win.

    Brian McKnight has received 16 Grammy nominations between 1994 and 2006 and none of these nominations resulted in a win.

    i agree. It was also sadly, her last great album. Everything post-Velvet Rope has been for the most part a travesty.

    I was shocked when this album was universally ignored by Grammy, despite solid critical notices, great sales and solid airplay on radio and MTV.

    To me it is a bit stunning that Cher has only 6 Grammy nominations and 1 single win to her credit for her entire career.

    The fact she had to wait until 2000 for her first win is beyond dumb to me.

    Tori Amos is also one of the biggest snubs…. However I understand that she’s had the hardest competition specially in the Alternative Album field. Her best album, Boys for Pele, was nominated alongside Beck’s Odelay (the eventual winner), the Smashing Pumpkin’s Mellon Collide… and Tracy Bonham’s The Bundens… which are amongs the greatest albums ever made. On the other hand, she was definitely snubbed for a nomination in 1992 for Little Earthquakes as well as for the song “God” in the Best Female Rock category. Furthermore, hadn’t the Best Classical Crossover album category was eliminated she would have won her first Grammy for Night of Hunters last february. All in all, I don’t think she’ll ever win a Grammy.
