Honey, I’ll take Beyonce winning AOTY over the other crap this year.
The committee knows Beyoncé won’t win, won’t attend and it won’t nominate her.
They are done giving her nominations just because she’s Beyoncé and watching her lose. She’ll get her next AoTY with an album as good as self-titled or Lemonade with a strong chance of winning, not a live album.May 14, 2019 at 8:37 pm #1202894364
They’re not going to do it, though. Y’all didn’t learn anything from Everything Is Love last year. They don’t nominate Beyoncé at every opportunity, and the committee has never put a live album in AOTY.May 14, 2019 at 8:52 pm #1202894366
Wrong! This year is so awful that Beyoncé is an easy name-check. This is the perfect time to give her a make-up award.
The Grammy’s have shown time and again that they’re not in the business of make-up awards…May 15, 2019 at 2:03 am #1202894587
Honey, Beck just won a make-up AOTY award a few years ago.
Or maybe the voters simply liked his self-written and self-produced album?
I can’t remember a year where I was thinking Beck should’ve won AoTY. So no, it’s not a make-up award.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantMay 15, 2019 at 5:28 am #1202894728
There are dozens of #1 albums every year. Not all of them get nominated. TOP20 is nothing exceptional either. So she was absolutely not snubbed or looked over.
Even Lana Del Rey’s album was more memorable.
Long story short, she simply didn’t deserve a nomination in those years outside of Closer. Now she does. Just like a #1 song propelled Ariana to win a grammy for the first time. The same could happen for Halsey. Without Me is definitely her most grammy-worthy work. So the fact that she didn’t win before doesn’t have bear any weight. Also Gaga and Ariana wins last year prove that voting comes down to a namecheck. Because Gaga was having a great year they voted for Joanne anyway. Because Ariana was having the #1 song at the time, they voted for her over TS. So we’ll see how things are looking later this year. If Halsey is more prominent, she could easily win that.
Like you said, her third album is likely coming out before the deadline. Halsey and her work will be fresher in Grammy voters’ minds as a result. It also wouldn’t hurt if Nighmare becomes another big hit for her.May 15, 2019 at 5:30 am #1202894730
AOTY: Father Of The Bride VS A Star Is Born. Can we say that this will be the duel?May 15, 2019 at 6:01 am #1202894762
If Gaga is smart, she should release her new album in September-November when the vote is taking place.
That way, not only she’ll let ASIB try its own AOTY run, but she’ll be even fresher in the voters in mind if her new album is as good. And she could overperform again like last year.May 15, 2019 at 7:16 am #1202894819

with a good album on charts and criticizes it may even compete again in 2021 with the ‘LG6’
she was already named 3 years in a row in AOTY so that would not be a problem for the committeeMay 15, 2019 at 7:17 am #1202894823

The committee also never had a live album like this. 90% of live albums are side projects for fans that probably don’t even get submitted. Plus in the past there were 5 nominees.May 15, 2019 at 7:26 am #1202894837

Yeah but wasn’t the committee created as a response to a live album winning album of the year?
What they’re trying to prevent is name checks. They want the album of the year to be an album (new material) that defines the year, not old songs sung live.
As much as I like Beyoncé, I really don’t see it happenening. It’s much less likely than Everything Is Love. And it isn’t fair to Beyoncé either, to nominate her and invite when she’s going to lose yet again. It’s better that she competes in AoTY again with an album that can win.May 15, 2019 at 9:39 am #1202894945
Probably moreso Tony Bennett specifically winning when hip-hop, R&B, and alt-rock were more culturally dominant than the fact that it was a live record.
That, but I think a MTV Unplugged Live album winning two out of three years definitely played a major part at the time. The nominees at the time was definitely not a representation of what was popular or most critically acclaimed at the time either. I think Beyoncé winning for a live album would be just as much of a cop out as giving Kendrick Lamar AOTY for a soundtrack album. However, Beyoncé is way more culturally relevant now than Tony Bennett was in 1994.May 15, 2019 at 9:43 am #1202894952

If only Truth Hurts by Lizzo was eligible because it is on its way to big time summer hit.
As for Old Time Road… it has now blocked Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber/Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes from hitting number one. It has the kind of buzz of a Despacito. It will likely get nominations within categories like ROTY or Rap/Sung, but probably will have the buzz die off by February too much to actually win, but it’s hard to ignore what a massive hit it is. AND… dare I say, it’s not actually horrible for a viral hit.
