    How would the ideal Grammy nominations look like if you were the BRP and the grammy nominations were up to you? How would you sum up the year in music? Any artists you feel deserve some recognition? Similarily, which artists would you have snubbed?

    Go ahead and give your favorite artists as much nominations as you like but try to be diverse and include all the major genres in the general field, for example, don’t make an all pop or rock AOTY line-up. 

    Do as many categories as you want  🙂

    It depends, doesn’t it? I mean, a lot of the artists people are mentioning probably weren’t top15/20 on the final list before BRP choices. Anyways, have to think about it.
