    Has this already been posted?

     

    FLAG ON THE PLAY: Grammy has its biggest nominations mess in years—and a chilling example of its lack of transparency—in the blackballing of The Weeknd by an internal cabal who agreed in theoryto let him do both the Super Bowland the Grammys—then pulled the rug out. Insiders continue buzzing about the legendary call with the NFL, Pepsi, CBS, Roc Nation, Academy reps and the artist’s team, during which it was established that he could do both events. This was followed by perhaps the biggest Grammy fuck-you ever, as he was zeroed out of the nominations. How could this have happened, and why? It’s believed the process was manipulated by people who wanted to see him do the Super Bowl exclusively. How this was achieved—and who else was complicit in it—remains a mystery.

    What was the quid pro quo for allowing the deck to be stacked against Abel and Sal? Did the conspirators really believe this would go unnoticed? Explosive on-the-record reporting on this is inevitable, as no denials are issued by the Academy apart from the claim that The Weeknd “didn’t get the votes,” which nobody believes—and is unverifiable.

    CBS’ Jack Sussman and producer Ben Winston were undoubtedly blindsided by the episode and would’ve preferred the opportunity to feature The Weeknd prominently, though buzz around the upcoming telecast remains impressively strong.

    This is far more appalling than the bullshit we’ve seen in the genre categories, notably from the Nashville chapter, where the nominations continue to be controlled by a small group of insiders who have too many axes to grind and enough conflicts of interest to choke the horse they rode in on. But it’s a larger symptom of the same rot. After endless promises of change, it’s an insult to the entire business, as the cabalists remain under their cloak of secrecy. And who enables all this to happen? Who is the puppet master executing the wishes of the Academy, whose job security is preserved by the secrets he keeps for the powers that be? That would be Chief Awards Officer Bill Freimuth.

    Once the Grammys moved to 3/14, of course, the whole tempest in a teapot over scheduling became moot.

    You just have to love how we can always count on HDD to call the bullshit on the Grammys and Billboard.

    The lineup would have been great had they took out Post, Coldplay, Black Pumas and HAIM for:

    Brittany Howard, Fiona Apple, Roddy Ricch and Harry Styles.

    Then why are any of us on these message boards to begin with? Why don’t we ALL stop bitching or cheering for our favorite artists and simply band together to protest world hunger?

    Because this is what the forum is FOR and The Weeknd’s snub is unarguably the BIGGEST overall snub in the past decade. Therefore ors going to warrant plenty of debate and discussion in a MUSIC based message board, especially given that the committee who runs the ceremony in question really hasn’t done much since the nominee announcement to separate or remove themselves from the conversation. They botched the original date, they are withholding performance announcements until seemingly the last minute, there’s literally NO hype surrounding this awards event. Which is why posters are finding increasingly grating ways to downcast Taylor Swift or uplift Jason Collier or even make arguments in support of freaking COLDPLAY.  Because there’s nothing to break the monotony

    Taylor Swift winning a third Album of the Year when the best and biggest albums of the year are not even nominated against her is white girl privilege at his finest. She has no merit.

    Well she had one of the top 3 biggest albums of the year and best is subjective so

    I agree there were a lot of big contenders snubbed but dont blame her for it. It’s not her fault they were snubbed.

    I know I don’t say it’s hers, but it’s just not really credible I think.

    I guess that’s fair but I wouldn’t look to Grammy’s in validation towards which music is best. So many phenomenal albums miss each year. It’s a great honor but the show is such a mess at this point that it’s become more of a great thing to have rather than actually meaning something is the absolute best of the year
