    folklore is going to be like RED if it is nominated. There is no way it is winning

    I dont see how you are that certain. if it gets nominated it won’t be guaranteed a win but you can’t just knock it out

    25 did rank decently on the year-end. 21 also got 76 but went on to be #2 most acclaimed album of 2011, according to the year-end rankings.

    Honey, I do NOT get why delusional Swifties feel the blue-ribbon committee has to include Folklore in Album of the Year.

    Bruno has been nominated in the GF for every single album of his career. He’s also won for each era. The Recording Academy loves him.

    24K Magic sustained longevity through out the year. He was a safe choice.

    Critics became way nicer to pop stars in the latest years

    we can see its hard for an album to get less than 70 these days

    I think the only thing all the popular AOTY winners have in common is their ability to still feel “new” throughout the whole process (eligibility period to final round voting) and i dont mean longevity in charts, and none of the commercial albums this year has that, so i guess the award will go to a less popular album.

    I agree with the start but imo future nostalgia sounds super fresh, same w ftbc and folklore. After Hours sound similar to his old sound (which isn’t bad just means it doesn’t feel new)

    anyway AOTY should be about the combination of critical and commercial success. how much noise it made and how good it was. also they should add some categories into the GF. Mainly Artist of the year. and also add best songwriter which will go to person not a song

    I don’t think it will be a filler nomination so there’s always a way for it to win.

    For you consideration :

    Album of the year : folklore
    Record of the year : Don't Start Now
    Song of the year : cardigan
    Best new artist : Phoebe Bridgers

    Best pop vocal album : folklore
    Best rap album : Alfredo
    Best alternative music album : Fetch the Bolt Cutters
    Best progressive R&B album : Ungodly Hour

    With the exception of blinding lights, in your eyes and save your tears, all the other songs in AH could very well be on any of his previous albums

    Folklore moves up #3 in overall odds, it will luckily move up to #2 later on, because many people place it as first choice.

    FYC Grammys 2021

    Folklore, best-selling album of 2020, 8 weeks #1 on BB200

    Nominated for Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album

    Cardigan, #1 hit single off Folklore

    Nominated for Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance

    Exile, top10 hit single off Folklore

    Nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance
