BEST NEW ARTIST:
A Boogie With Da Hoodie
(I dont know anybody else eligible)
They should push back the general field to 5 nods apiece especially since we have 1 month less and its such a weak year.
Ben Platt is ineligible bc he is already a Grammy Award winner (for the Dear Evan Hansen Soundtrack).
I do feel that we are lacking quality Best New Artist contenders outside a couple choices. I think the Grammys need to be like the Oscars and say they can nominate “up to” 8, but can nominate less if not enough are worthy.
At this point, I would say:
Billie Eilish (Alternative / Pop)
Lizzo (Contemporary R&B)
Lewis Capaldi (Pop / Singer-Songwriter)
Lil Nas X (Hip-Hop / Maybe Country)
City Girls (Hip-Hop)
Morgan Wallen (Country)
Megan Thee Stallion (Hip-Hop)
Sigrid or Maggie Rogers (Pop / Alternative)June 4, 2019 at 4:23 pm #1202923685
Maggie Rogers and Sigrid are both definitely getting nominations over City Girls and Lil Nas X. These basic non-critically acclaimed hip hop acts rarely get best new artist nominations. the only recent example of this is Lil Uzi Vert. Maggie’s album debuted at #2 and got great reviews. Sigrid also got great reviews and has a lot of hype.June 4, 2019 at 5:24 pm #1202923727
Lizzo also fits the Hip Hop quota.June 4, 2019 at 7:37 pm #1202923857
My bets on BNA
1. Billie Eilish
3. Maggie Rogers
4. Alec Benjamin
5. City Girls
6. Lewis Capaldi
7. Morgan Wallen
8. Lil Nas X
Maggie and Billie will fit both pop and alternative. Lizzo for R&B, Alec Benjamin and Lewis Capaldi for the singer-songwriter, Morgan in country, and Lil Nas X and City Girls in BNA (there’s usually a duo or group, so I think City Girls have a good shot).June 4, 2019 at 7:42 pm #1202923861
Album of the Year is wide open due to an extremely weak year. Beyoncé and Solange could easily get in. Sisters have never faced off in the biggest category. That would be a cute narrative.
Just give Beyoncé AOTY for an amazing career.
Beyoncé shouldn’t win with a flop album that everyone forgot now. Thank U Next deserves this yearJune 4, 2019 at 7:46 pm #1202923863
Dude stop trying to force ASIB as a “popular” albun, specially comparing It to Post Malone or Drake. I know it’s kind your opinion but it’s Just too stupid say something like that
I don’t whats bad about being compared to Drake who broke records last year even though his album is filler and also post malone who stays on the Billboard . But IMO I think that’s the case with A Star is Born, where there’s filler except maybe Shallow and INLA. That’s just my opinion, if you have a problem with saying she’s popular and that’s why she’s getting nominated, fix your priorities and get over it 🙂

Well ASIB is the album that most sold among all the one’s talked on this thread, obviously it’s not a chart smash hit singles like Scorpion. But That’s not the case, he’s trying to say that ASIB will only be nominated because it made good numbers, ignoring the fact that it was loved by all the critics and won many awards, he even dared to compare it to a Post Malone work lol.
Homeboy I’m going by the facts. A Star is Born is not winning Album of the Year because it was critically this amazing body of work. Lady Gaga is not critically acclaimed like Billie Eilish, Tyler the Creator and even Solange and Ariana Grande. She is not getting the nomination or the win because it’s the most critically acclaimed album, but she is not no Post Malone and Drake, even though there’s filler on the Soundtrack. She getting it because of Sales and Shallow. She won awards because of Shallow, not the Soundtrack. And also let me remind you that Shallow didn’t win all the awards it toke home. And yet something critically like Golden Hour and This is America took home the general field last year. So to say that Lady Gaga is critically acclaimed is bull shit. She might have good reviews, but it’s no Billie Eilish, it’s no Ariana Grande, it’s no Solange. And it’s certainly not a Tyler the Creator.

City Girls might be hurt by the recent revelation that they use ghostwriters.June 4, 2019 at 8:34 pm #1202923890
She might have good reviews, but it’s no Billie Eilish, it’s no Ariana Grande, it’s no Solange. And it’s certainly not a Tyler the Creator.
Please stop this dumb argument. ASIB actually has a higher score:
Film Journal International – Kevin Lally
Sep 10, 2018
The songs, written by Gaga, Cooper, Lukas Nelson, Jason Aldean and Mark Ronson, are all terrific and will make a helluva soundtrack album, and Lady Gaga’s performances are electrifying.”
“Which I suppose brings me to the real red meat of this movie: the music. Gaga and Lukas Nelson have composed a sampling of songs that exist comfortably in the environment of the movie, but could also (and likely will) stand on their own. ”
I could post dozens of quotes that talk about music in these very reviews. So please stop this dumb argument that somehow music wasn’t taken into consideration when this movie was reviewed when it’s an ACTUAL MUSICAL.June 4, 2019 at 8:43 pm #1202923898
It’s really annoying to keep rehashing this same topic. But these Ariana stans can’t accept a simple fact that ASIB is actually more acclaimed than TUN, trying to dismiss it as just a “popular” album that isn’t acclaimed lmao. This far-fetched notion that somehow the musical’s acclaim doesn’t extend to its OWN music is simply stupid. As you can see in the reviews, most of the critics weighed in on the music itself in their reviews.
The musical has 88 on MC, but apparently it’s not enough to consider the project “acclaimed” for some stans who are being willfully blind.June 4, 2019 at 9:29 pm #1202923920

To say something so bad like that, dude, you just proved everything I’ve said, not even the most ignorant hater of Gaga would say something like “she’s not acclaimed as billie, ariana or tyler” lol
you clearly do not understand anything of the subject that we speak here, of acclaim, awards, rates or impact on music, please go to a thread about something like the Teen’s Choice Awards, you will fit better there.June 4, 2019 at 9:32 pm #1202923925

What he said was by fair the weirdest thing that I read in here. It’s batshit crazyJune 4, 2019 at 9:54 pm #1202923961
City Girls are just not the type of Hip Hop artists to be nominated for any major Grammys.
Lil Uzi Vert is an emo artist that had a song with a strong melody, and his album has some acclaim. He was a different type of Hip Hop from City Girls. I’ll just leave it at that.June 4, 2019 at 10:10 pm #1202923974

Unrelated but 5 Seconds of Summer’s label does a terrible job at promoting them. That new song they released would kill at Alternative/ “Rock” radio with the kind of crap Imagine Dragons and Panic! are feeding us. They need to stop promoting them on Pop radio only. They’re not really rock anymore, but neither is Panic.
