    I don’t think WWAFA is “baity” enough to get AOTY. But, seeing how most AOTY’s go to the best selling of said year, she’s not far off. *jk it only goes to best sellers if its Adele or Taylor…

    best selling album of the period is still A Star Is Born. 6kk-7kk WW

    I don’t see why you’re excluding Ariana from your predictions. Thank U Next was more than just a hit. She was making news, talking openly about her exes, people were transforming the lyrics into memes and captions. It was huge.

    For now, I totally see TUN nominated for ROTY and SOTY.

    The Middle was in Song, Record, and Pop Duo, and Maren Morris got three extra nods. It would’ve been nominated in a 5 nominee line-up.

    And lost all of them. Good luck convincing me that The Middle would’ve been nominated in a 5 nominee line-up over “This Is America”, “Shallow”, “God’s Plan”, “I Like It” and “Rockstar”. Heck even “All The Stars” was more likely.

    Stop with the delusion. There’s no way “The Middle” would’ve made it in a 5 nominee line up.

    you talked about 25 and 1989 which were released 2 years before the Grammy and were the biggest of the period as ASIB

    Speaking of that, this is how I would imagine the lineup last year had it been limited to 5:

    Album of The Year:
    Drake – Scorpion
    Cardi B – Invasion of Privacy
    Kacey Musgraves – Golden Hour
    Janelle Monáe – Dirty Computer
    Brandi Carlile – By The Way, I Forgive You

    Record of The Year:
    Childish Gambino – This Is America
    Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Shallow
    Post Malone – Rockstar
    Drake – God’s Plan
    Cardi B – I Like It

    Song of The Year:
    Childish Gambino – This Is America
    Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Shallow
    Drake – God’s Plan
    Brandi Carlile – The Joke
    Ella Mai – Boo’d Up

    25 released in 2015, earned AOTY in 2017

    1989 released in 2014, earned AOTY in 2016

    The Bodyguard released in 1992, earned AOTY in 1994

    the same can easily happen with A Star Is Born

    if the topic is charts both asib and the albums cited were the biggest in sales and the ones with the most weeks in # 1 of their periods

    “God’s Plan” probably would have missed SOTY in a 5-nominee lineup

    Not really. It was an undeniable smash hit. Considering that they nominated the awful Despacito in SoTY in a 5 nominee lineup, I’m pretty sure they would’ve had no problem doing the same for God’s Plan.

    And that’s why it would have gotten in ROTY. Prior to the 8-nominee lineup, NARAS only nominated rap songs with a deep message or that were otherwise lyrically profound in SOTY; “Humble” missed the year earlier.

    Last spot would have gone to “The Middle,” “In My Blood,” or “All the Stars” for the Oscar buzz

    What helped “God’s Plan” is that it was inoffensive (to the older voters). The message was sort of religious. However awful you may think the lyrics are, it’s still not the typical rap song filled with profanity and sex lyrics. That’s what helped it.

    And awful lyrics didn’t prevent Despacito from being in SoTY.

    I didn’t say it had bad lyrics (they aren’t great either), just that it’s not a message song like “Jesus Walks,” “1-800,” “Love the Way You Lie,” etc., and lacks the lyrical intensity of something like “Lose Yourself,” “4:44,” etc.

    And I don’t know why you’re ragging so much on “Despacito.” It’s not the greatest song ever but it was a hugely popular love song, and records like that have gotten nominated in SOTY all the time, they just happened to be in English. You’re acting like they nominated the “Hokey Pokey” or “Sexy and I Know It”.
