    I don’t have a problem with the first statement (although I disagree), but where on earth does that second one come from?

    2/4 of “Shallow”‘s nominations were in categories that don’t have committees, as was the “Joanne” nomination.

    It, A Star Is Born, and its soundtrack were hits at literally the perfect time (the film was released on October 5; voting was October 17-31). I don’t see how it doing well in nominations is suspect.

    Im ok with the Song for Visual Media nod and the Pop Duo Group nomination. But it getting in BOTH ROTY and SOTY was definitely the Blue Ribbon committe trying to piggyback off the movie buzz for ratings for the Grammys. I can think of other songs that were more dominant critically and commercially than Shallow for ROTY and SOTY.

    There are nominees you can say this about every single year. Couldn’t you also say this about “The Joke”?

    And if they really nominated “Shallow” in those categories in the quest for ratings, they’ll have played themselves if Gaga and Cooper end up going to the BAFTAs instead.

    “Say Something” is too high, and “Shallow” is too low. You need to rethink that prediction, sir.

    the top 3 is interchangeable. But no Shallow is where it needs to be.

    Surely an attempt to lure them to attend and perform. Wouldnt the producers want Bradley and Gaga to have their first performance of the song be at the Grammys?

    “Say Something” and “Fall in Line” (a complete non-hit) above “Shallow”? Either that is a dream prediction, or you are on crack.

    I think voers would rathr give Christina another Pop vocal win and Demi her first before rewarding Bradley Cooper. And a song that without the movie is completely forgettable. You stans are acting like Shallow is a “My Heart Will Go On” or even “I Will Always Love You” sized hit or phenom. Please .. its cute. But its not as groundbreaking and a LOCK for all these wins like yall make it seem.

    No one said it was a lock and no one mentioned those other two songs, lmao

    There are at least 2 songs in this lineup I could see potentially beating “Shallow”, but some of the ones you named? Ranking it 5th most likely to win? At least try to not make it obvious that you just plain don’t want it to win. 😂

    Honey, you have to pay these posters complete dust. All of them stated that Aguilera and “Fall In Line” would NOT receive any nomimations. There goes that.

    why wouldn’t they wanna give Lady Gaga another pop win and Bradley his first! It’s the same exact case as Christina and Demi so I don’t see your point!

    But youre making it seem like JUST because it has both ROTY and SOTY that it cant lose. 🙂 And if there are AT LEAST 2 songs (your words) so it being 5th in my ranking isnt so far fetched after all right? 3rd place isnt that far from 5th in a 7 man lineup.

    I didn’t say that either, but by all means, continue putting words in my mouth, lol.

    Is Gaga promoting her Oscar bids or Grammy bids more? It seems as if she’s allocated the majority of her energy into her Oscar chances. Could that make her winning a Grammy, specifically in categories outside Visual Media, significantly less likely?

    Well, she’s not going to have Oscar nominations for A Star Is Born until after Grammy voting is over.

    If anything, her high level of visibility due to the general awards season campaigning for the movie helps her chances at the Grammys. Most artists/labels just campaign for the Grammys by putting FYC ads on industry websites/magazines.

    Aguilera and Timberlake are being overestimated. Aguilera’s song isn’t a hit. Period. Hits win here.

    “Say Something” dropped off the charts too early to be a legitimate threat, and voters haven’t been as fond of Timberlake lately.

    1. Shallow

    2. The Middle

    3. Girls Like You

    4. ‘S Wonderful

    5. Say Something

    6. Fall in Line

    7. Don’t Go Breaking My Heart

    “Hits win here”. Shallow spent a whopping 2 weeks in the top 10. Currently at #44 after 12 weeks. yet Girls Like You is at #15. You may be on to something.
