Now that we’re in the home stretch for nominations, who do you all think is the favorite to lead the nomination totals when they’re announced? Personally, I’m leaning toward Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, with Kendrick Lamar as another dark horse. I’ve added my current predicted tallies for some leaders below.
Who do you all think will lead nominations? Will it be Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, or one of the other contenders below?
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (7): ROTY, SOTY, BNA, Rap Performance, Rap Song, Rap Album, Pop Group
Kendrick Lamar (7): AOTY, BNA, Rap Performance (Fuckin Problems), Rap Performance (Swimming Pools), Rap Song (Fuckin Problems), Rap Song (Swimming Pools, Rap Album
Justin Timberlake (6): ROTY, SOTY, AOTY, Pop Solo, Pop Album, Music Video
Pharrell (6): ROTY (Blurred Lines), ROTY (Get Lucky), SOTY (Get Lucky), AOTY (Random Access Memories), Pop Group (Blurred Lines), Pop Group (Get Lucky)
Daft Punk (6): ROTY, SOTY, AOTY, Pop Group, Dance Album, Producer of the Year
Taylor Swift (6): AOTY, Pop Solo, Country Solo, Country Group, Country Song, Country Album
Could anyone else be in the hunt to lead the race?November 5, 2013 at 12:18 pm #393527
Kacey Musgraves could, i say could, get a high number of nominations.
Country album, country vocal, 2 for country song (Merry go round and mamas broken heart), new artist and song of year for MGR (6nominations are assured)
She also could get in Album, music video for MGR
Long shot in Record.
6 nominations though ain’t bad for a new artist.November 5, 2013 at 12:21 pm #393528
Lorde could get 6 nominations: album, record, song, new artist, pop album and pop performance.November 5, 2013 at 12:32 pm #393529
Lorde could get 6 nominations: album, record, song, new artist, pop album and pop performance.
I fully expect her to get five nominations, but I think AOTY is a very, very longshot for her. I think they’re view the “pop” slots as being filled if Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, and Daft Punk make it in (all of which I am predicting).November 5, 2013 at 12:58 pm #393530
I think Drake could spoil, since he’s eligible in all these: AOTY, ROTY, SOTY, Pop Duo/Group, Rap Album, Rap Song, Rap Performance (2), MV, so that would be 9 noms, but of course he’s not getting in all of them…
I wonder if Ryan Lewis was submitted for Producer of the Year (non-classical), if that’s the case he could lead the noms with 7-9 total, same with Justin Timberlake, whom I think was indeed submitted for POTY… but I bet it’ll be Ryan Lewis…November 5, 2013 at 3:41 pm #393531
MacklemoreNovember 5, 2013 at 3:53 pm #393532
Macklemore had the most nominations at the VMAs,EMAs,AMAs, so i doubt that this will be different.November 5, 2013 at 7:16 pm #393533
Its definitely going to be between Macklemore, Justin Timberlake & Ryan Lewis
– Macklemore+Ryan Lewis were submitted in 9 categories and are probably going to be nominated to all of them
– JT was submitted to 10 but is unlikely to be nominated in one category (R&B Perf.) leaving him with only 9 nods.
– If Ryan Lewis was submitted to Producer of the Year. Then he’ll lead the nods with 10!
On the other hand watch out for THE CIVIL WARS. To me, they have high chances for AoTY and are, off course, locks in Americana Album & American Roots song. However they have been submitted in 12 different categories (they are in 5 different fields). And depending on how much NARAS actually love them. They could also score 10 nods. They could even had only 8 nods without getting to RoTY or SoTY.November 5, 2013 at 7:41 pm #393534
The awful Justin Timberlake will unfortunately. His continued success is one the most puzzling things ive ever witnessed. Its the same redundant music awards-bodies keep awarding him for. Watch him win album of the year for that garbage.November 5, 2013 at 10:01 pm #393535
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – 8 or 9 nominations
then Justin & The Civil Wars – around 5-6 nominations.November 6, 2013 at 11:55 am #393536
I’m thinking The Civil Wars could end up being the most nominated act based upon the sheer number of their submissions.
Dust To Dust- ROTY, SOTY, Pop Duo
The One That Got Away- ROTY, SOTY, Roots Song
I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day- Pop Duo
I Had Me A Girl- Rock Perf, Rock Song
From This Valley- Country Duo, Country Song
Devil’s Backbone- Roots Song
Long Time Gone- Visual Media Song
The Civil Wars- AOTY, Americana Album
A Place At The Table- Compilation Soundtrack
They’re easily getting 5 nominations (Roots Song, Country Duo, Visual Media Song, Americana Album, Comp. Soundtrack) and could manage quite a few more on top of that. I think they’ll definitely be amongst the night’s most nominated acts.November 6, 2013 at 12:42 pm #393537
Jay-Z will possibly be on that list too.November 6, 2013 at 7:30 pm #393538
I expect Justin Timberlake to lead (8):
Album of the Year
Record of the Year
Song of the Year
Pop Vocal Album
Rap Song (Holy Grail)
Rap/Sung Collab (Holy Grail)November 7, 2013 at 6:04 am #393539
I expect Macklemore and Justin to lead as well with Bruno Mars and Jay-Z following close behind with The Civil Wars and Kacey Musgraves as surprises. I think that Janelle Monae could have a solid chance as well leading in the R&B field and it was said that she also submitted to Producer of the Year, it would be nice to see female representation in that category.
By the way, when was the last time a female was nominated in Producer of the Year?
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis-Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance, Producer of the Year for Ryan Lewis
Justin Timberlake-Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Rap Song, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, Best Music Video. He also submitted to Producer of the Year and the R&B categories, I’m unsure whether he’ll get into the R&B field as there are some decent contenders and unsure about POTY ,Pop/Duo Performance and Song With Visual Media but there are possiblities
