    It really isn’t. Bigger (and better) hits have been snubbed.

    OK, so with that logic, anything could be theoretically snubbed. Is it likely? No.

    Bad guy is not a lock for SOTY. ROTY? it’s a front runner for sure, but i could totally see it missing out on SOTY. any of her other singles would be a much better choice.

    When the party’s over is SOTY material imo. She should use that but either way she’s seeing soty for sure. How would she miss it ???

    There’s been songs that aren’t lyrical driven and they’ve been nominated for SOTY. Ion see how it’ll be different for bad guy.

    It is likely. It’s subject matter is not typical SOTY material, and again, there are more lyric-driven songs. You need to stop acting like Billie’s a lock for every single category she’ll submit.

    The irony of this claim is that songs that are about nontypical subjects actually get SOTY nominations pretty commonly (“1-800-273-8255,” “I Took a Pill in Ibiza,” “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning,” “All About That Bass,” etc.)

    Billie is obviously going to be one of the most nominated artists this year and is all but assured nominations across the board in the general field. It’s obvious to anyone who follows the Grammys and the fact that you’re actually trying to argue otherwise because you don’t like her and/or that song (which you’re making painfully obvious with your ridiculous excuses for why you think she isn’t getting nomination X or Y) is comical.

    If you disagree with my predictions that’s whatever, but you can fuck all the way off telling me not to make my own as if yours are any better than mine.

    If they decide to get lazy again and make SOTY ROTY.2 then Bad Guy is probably a lock. If they decide to actually recognize songs whose strengths are the lyrics, then it’s not a lock. I don’t think anyone can say yet which they’re leaning towards.

    Also, the irony of you telling people to fuck off when you’re the one that calls people delusional for not predicting a song in one category…

    I’m telling you to fuck off because of you telling me I “need to stop” anything. I’m so fucking tired of the blatant disrespect I get from you and a lot of other people on here because I don’t have the same predictions as you. There’s a whole ass difference between having a conversation about who you’re predicting and why, and shutting down everything you don’t agree with with “lol you’re biased” or “lol stop talking”. Grow the FUCK up.

    All of those songs except All About that Bass were praised for their lyrics, specially the first two. And All About That Bass touched on body-positivity, which fits the type of songs they like. Songs about being a “Bad Guy”, stealing dads, and making your girlfriend scared, however, do not fit the mold.

    This is such a surface level analysis. “Bad Guy” is about the power dynamics in male/female relationships and how men think they have a lot to prove and women can be just as tough as men think they are.

    Regardless, obviously one of the year’s biggest hits by a singer-songwriter type of artist is one of the top candidates for a SOTY nomination. The fact that you’re saying not even that it might be shut out, but that it’s likely it will be? Laughable.

    The irony of the Billie supporters on this thread is I feel like generally everyone enjoys her music here, but if you predict her missing 1 (one) category, they jump down your throat saying that you’re only saying so because you don’t like her.

    Also valid to point out: Bad Guy would absolutely lose to Someone You Loved if nominated against it.

    Debatable. Especially if “Someone You Loved” doesn’t get a Pop Solo Performance nomination and “Bad Guy” does.

    I would literally say the same thing about someone saying Lizzo isn’t a lock for an AOTY nomination (which she is). In fact, I have called someone out on this board previously for suggesting as much.

    This has to be the biggest reach I’ve heard all year.

    At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if the song has a deeper meaning or not, but that actually makes an attempt at interpreting the message of the song rather than reducing it to 1-2 lyrics taken out of context.
