    It has always been my opinion that Beyonce hasn’t won AOTY because of the lacking role she has in making her music. Adele can be critiqued as having boring music. Taylor’s music is called juvenile by many. The one thing they have in common is they write /co-write all their songs. That’s an undeniable fact. Beyonce is a performer not a songwriter. I want to at least believe Grammys take into account how much the artist played in making the album.

    “Beyonce could win if she tried to make an album herself instead of having a team of 60 artists wrapped around her albums.”

    Wasn’t Lemonade like Samples or something ?

    I feel like her best shot at winning AOTY was with IASF.

    Beyonce is about to enter the list of legendary Black woman-artists who never have won album of the year. A list that Mariah an Janet Jackson are included on. I could see that happening to her.

    whats your excuse for Whitney and Celine? Those women rarely wrote any of their most iconic songs and they both won album of the year.

    Stans put WAY too much emphasis on Beyonce’s lack of an AOTY award. But she has over 20 Grammys on her mantle.

    Talk about being greedy…

    This makes absolutely no sense. First of all: Beyoncé is involved with EVERYTHING in her albums, people should be really stupid to think that making music is only about writing lyrics. Second: Bruno Mars has just won AOTY with a lot of collaborators, Adele as well. There is no point in saying artists should do everything by themselves. Especially because no one does, not even Taylor or Adele.

    Maybe you should think of something beyond Beyoncé. Other acclaimed artists like Kanye, Kendrick or Frank Ocean have also lost AOTY this decade. What do they have in common? Oh yes, the same thing Adele and Taylor (and almost every AOTY winner) have.

    1. Whitney nor Celine took credit for writing their songs. They gave producers and writers their due when it came to their hits.

    2. They appealed to an adult contemporary audience. Which meant their music was/is for everybody aka safe & agreeable.

    3. Their records went Diamond. DIAMOND. We will never see numbers like that again (with the exception of Adele).

    Toni Braxton aswell. Black women NEVER win Album of the Year and in the rare event that they do, they never win a second time like white artist do. Beyonce stans don’t realize that BW don’t do well in that category historically speaking. The list I just gave is all the evidence needed!

    IASF should’ve won AoTY over the boring Fearless. It was really close. If she won SoTY it’s an indication that she was close. But instead they gave Taylor a consolation prize after Kanye’s incident. Actually I think Taylor should’ve won SoTY with “You Belong With Me” because SL was atrocious, and Beyoncé the album.

    Which is why I don’t see the point in stressing her loss in AOTY. While I think she deserved it for Lemonade over Adele, I don’t think she’s crying herself to sleep about it and her latest projects seem to show.

    Anyways to get back on topic: Out of curiosity, does anyone think Alec Benjamin could sneak into BNA  with John Mayer campaigning for him? Or possibly Ben Platt?

    I said what I said. Sure there’s other factors but I stand by saying that it plays a role especially in who takes the TOP award not necessarily other awards. Having tons of collaborators doesn’t seem to help you win AOTY.
