I’m not buying the fun. hype, I think they’ll lose all six of their nominations
Album to El Camino
Record to Lonely Boy
Song to The A Team
New artist to Frank ocean
Pop album to ceremonials
Pop duo/group to Florence + the machhine
This is an odd year because I believe a few of the leading nominees are in danger of being left emptyhanded. I think Frank is only a frontrunner in Urban Contemporary Album, but Miguel poses a HUGE threat. I can see Kelly losing all of her nominations. Fun. could, too, but I feel that they are in a better position than those two.
Kelly will lose all her nominations indeed. ROTY and SOTY are out of the question. Pop album is between Florence, fun. and maybe Pink as a darkhorse. Her biggest shot is therefore Pop Solo, but I fear Adele will take that one though.
fun. will lose all their GF nominations. I find it ridiculous to predict them taking BNA, since Frank Ocean clearly has it in the bag. Maybe they win in the Pop field, but I believe Florence and Gotye/Kimbra will prevail over them.
Taylor Swift could go home empty-handed, even though I would love to see her win for Safe & Sound somewhere.
Jack White will probably win nothing as well because he is up against The Black Keys in every category he’s nominated in.
I was just thinking about starting this thread.
As of now, I think fun., Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Alabama Shakes, The Lumineers and possibly Jack White are all in danger of going home empty-handed. They all face stiff competition in their categories.
I’m very tempted to add Nas to this list. We all know how NARAS has shaded this man in the past. I hope he can squeeze out a win somewhere in the Rap field. ( * fingers crossed *)
