    You know, I’m thinking about the Abel snub and looking back, his era really hasn’t been any bigger than the tu,n era. I think we really really overhyped his chances and while him getting zero nods is unexpected, when we couple it with the genre confusion and name at the bottom of the list etc. then it isn’t super shocking. Egregious, yes, but not super shocking. In fact, I’d say Ariana’s album was a much bigger cultural moment and actually had two big hits.

    Phoebe Bridgers- BNA, Rock Song, Rock Performance, Alternative Album

    And even those who weren’t huge fans of him, like myself, were swayed becuase of the amazing odds that were looking like a lock. We def played ourselves here on GD

    After Hours will be #10 on the YEC of BB200. Album was released March.

    Thank You Next was #2 on YEC of BB200. Album was released in February.

    (Billie was #1)

    It is true there was a massive overstimation of The Weeknd. The whole thing started from the mindset BLM along with the hit of the year is the ticket to sweep. We thought as mainstream artist The Weeknd will have the most Appeal for support by the voters. And well…

    Abel was the frontrunner long before BLM. We just thought Blinding Lights would be enough to pull the middling album performance over the finish line and that didn’t happen (again, due to the combo of genre confusion and name listing etc.)

    I didn’t understand the comparison with TUN.
    Of course, Ariana’s album was bigger than AH, Thank U, Next spent more weeks in the top 10, sold more, ended in #2 at YEC, AH ended in #10 behind Luke Combs’ album, TUN produced multiple hits and she had a tour to keep the album relevant.

    However The Weeknd has the biggest song of the year and one of the biggest Hot 100 songs of all time, so for me the Blinding Lights snub is still the most shocking thing that ever happened to the Grammys. Nothing explains the snub of the song.

    When JT and Ed were snubbed in the GF they received nominations in Pop Field (Pop Solo & Pop Album). JT even got more than just Pop field noms but Weeknd got nothing. It’s crazy.

    Who won in Beyonce’s year. Maybe they had a good album? Probably not as deserved though as she should have wo

     

    beck won. It was underserved. His album was okay but did not deserve to win over Beyoncé that year. Even Prince had a look on his face signaling his disgust when he saw his name on the Grammy card slip

    2020 has been the year of the weird. Imagine if it’s capped off with a Jacob Collier upset.😅😂💀

    AH had a very strong chart entrance. It did over 400k. It is just the era was mostly BL.

    I think it just comes down to a very unfortunate combination of all the circumstances I listed above. He definitely deserved a BPSP win for Blinding Lights.

    AH missing aoty is surprising to me, but I can understand it.

    But, I just can’t understand BL missing roty at all.

    I understand with your arguments but it still doesn’t make sense for Blinding Lights to be snubbed for me.

    He has been nominated in Pop Solo Performance before for “Can’t Feel My Face” and albums considered “urban contemporary” or “r&b” by the Recording Academy in the past when they had a pop hit song, the songs were nominated in Pop Solo / Pop Duo/Group Performance.
    – Happy, Truth Hurts, Can’t Feel My Face, Hold Up, Work etc.

    I think After Hours had potential (a la Thank U, Next). I think he spent so much time promoting Blinding Lights that other singles did not shine enough. In Your Eyes is a great song and deserved more. Not saying he did not promote, just saying all the promotion was overshadowed by Blinding Lights, which did not help him at all.
