    I mean it could happen. I just hope it’s for the right people. Because if it’s a Weeknd sweep with Megan (who actually does deserve the award just putting that out there) win it then… oh well. I don’t think it would be that great. Now if albums like Punisher or songs from artists like HER win, then I’m all for it

    Honey, it’s about damn time that all of the General winners are black.  Shit, the General Field were all white last year (BARF!)

    The Weeknd would likely sweep. BNA could go to a White artist. I think Megan & Doja are beatable.

    Brittany Howard is campaigning hard. She was on CBS This Morning on 10/27.

    “Grammy-winning band Alabama Shakes’ front woman Brittany Howard is stepping out. Wednesday on CBS This Morning, Anthony Mason speaks to Brittany about making her own music, writing about family & sexuality and how she believes she fits into this moment in America.”

    The Grammy is broadcast on CBS.

    Honey, as each day goes by, Summer Walker is looking more likely for an AOTY nom.

    I think Jaime is a lock for Alternative Album and Brittany is a serious threat to get an AOTY nom. I would also love to see “Stay High” in either SOTY or ROTY

    I’ve been saying this for months. Summer Walker’s album was a big deal. I would NOT be surprised if Over It is the token R&B nominee in AOTY.

    I think Brittany can upset Fiona in Alternative Album and she is competitive in AOTY.

    She is campaigning a lot:

    CBS This Morning – Interview this month
    CBS This Morning – Last month and she performed two songs: Stay High and Short and Sweet
    CBS The Late Late Show with James Corden – Last month, she did an interview + performance of Stay High and Baby
    Today Show – Interview in August

    Brittany could easily get in AOTY and win Alternative. She’s respected, a previous winner, & is actually campaigning. Jaime definitely isn’t old news. Sis is putting in the promo 👏🏾🙌🏾

    Now that would also be a deserving winner (but obviously so is Fiona).svg” class=”emoji”

    Brittany reminds me of Gary Clark Jr. last year. Seemed like a perfect AOTY/SOTY nominee on paper and yet it didn’t happen. Hopefully I’m wrong, though.

    It would make sense. In 2011 there were 4 commercial albums (The Fame Monster, Teenage Dream, Recovery and Need You Now) which ended up in Arcade Fire winning as a passion pick.

    A similar situation happened in 2015, with two albums representing each genre (In the Lonely Hour and X in Pop; GIRL and Beyoncé in R&B), which likely resulted in splitting – and, again, passion pick.

    Also, in both cases, these albums had a singer-songwriter style and were fully produced by its artists. Brittany could benefit from this scenario – and it would be absolutely deserving if we had a Black woman winning Album of the Year.

    So a surprisingly accurate predictor/index would suggest that folklore is getting an album of the year nomination:

    Apple Music added folklore to Taylor’s “Essential Albums” collection. The other three albums there? Fearless, Red, and 1989.

    (if you take this seriously, that’s your fault 😉 )

    Yeah. Also her music is more Grammy friendly than Fiona’s album and Fiona is not campaigning
    I think she will win Alternative album
