    Collier is talented but yes he got the WEIRD album slot over Fiona only because of Quincy. Quincy also helped Vampire Weekend get nominated last year (he’s Ezra father in law, the father of the bride himself perhaps in the future?). I wouldn’t take Collier out of the lineup tho, I would kick Coldplay in the butt and put my girl Fifi there. Our boy Quincy has TASTE.

    Just realized Rashida Jones is Quincy Jones’ daughter! I feel so dumb!

    huh? That’s a weird way to spell HAIM and Dua Lipa 🤔

    Nah. Dua was never my favorite though I really like Don’t Start Now. The HAIM girls are good but their album has some lowlights that are hard to take and it’s got a lot of filler.

    That was one of the reasons I never doubted they would be nominated last year!

    Just realized Coldplay’s Everyday Life is the poor man’s Graceland and the Grammys’ version of Crash put together. The music is good but the content is cringe city.

    Also Jacob’s nomination is the one you get when you have the connections that James Blake didn’t have.

    I mean the public will feel the Grammys are kinda elitist nominating Djesse Vol. 3, because the guy had Quincy Jones as manager. If Jacobs album had even a little noise, even in the indie scene you could justify it, but it feels like they pulled a card and said, oh we have this guy here, he is talented, let’s nominate him in AOTY. Brittany Howard, Fiona Apple missed AOTY, but Djesse Vol.3 was nominated. Gives a weird essence.

    Yes. Jacob is a good musician but there’s no way that he represents any sort of consensus by the Academy. Like you said, Brittany and Fiona make way more sense in that category when you look at the overall nominations. A lineup without  Collier and Coldplay and Howard & Apple instead would be near-perfect.

    I have no doubt that he was not even in the top 15 in the first round. His album is pretty good from what I’ve heard but I think Fiona, Brittany, and a lot of other artists were more clearly frontrunners.

    Hmm, I think we found the thread of the noms

    Coldplay/Jacob Collier/Quincy Jones

    The noms make sense.

    Jacob was a write-in FOR SURE. Brittany, Fiona, Abel, Phoebe Bridgers were there before him.

    And what about The Black Pumas and the nomination for a two-year old album?

    When I think about it I do believe the BRP’s power has gone to their head and they operate independently (and sometimes against) the branches.

    im sorry but James Blake > Jacob Collier. James has a great range in his voice and his music is very versatile. Collier reminds me how I feel about Bruno Mars: has AMAZING tracks , but barrows too much from other artists where he feels more like a throwback than a freshing version of a nostalgic sound.

    I think he may be the H.E.R. of this year. Has the support to burst into the general field, but not particularly the support to win. His project is really niche so him just getting here was odd.
