    Now that it’s a popular vote, I’m pretty confident in these three being the frontrunners

    Mariah Carey – The Meaning Of
    Barack Obama – A Promised Land
    Matthew McConaughey – Greenlights

    Possibly these three as well

    Brandi Carlisle – Broken Horses
    Eddie S. Glaude Jr – Begin Again
    Amanda Gorman – The Hill We Climb

    What about Cicely Tyson’s Just as I Am: A Memoir? Is it eligible?

    seems like it’s between Barack and Mariah

    What a great and deserved win for Mariah. But, of course I don’t think the academy would be “afraid” to give Barack his third. He has won twice already, correct?

    I can see either Mariah or Obama winning, but have a slight edge on Mariah because she will be everywhere during final round voting (Christmas season & second Apple TV Christmas special). Hoping Mariah can pull through for this well deserved win!!!

    cranbur, are those Mariah’s actual grammy submissions in your signature?

    The answer is no… bc an album can’t be submitted in more than one genre category. So it will either be submitted in Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media (which is where I think it will go) or Traditional Pop Vocal Album, but not both.

    Mariah Carey – The Meaning Of
    Barack Obama – A Promised Land
    Matthew McConaughey – Greenlights

    Possibilities:
    Brandi Carlisle – Broken Horses
    Eddie S. Glaude Jr – Begin Again
    Amanda Gorman – The Hill We Climb
    Yo-Yo Ma – Beginner’s Mind
    Trejo: My Life of Crime, Redemption, and Hollywood by Danny Trejo with Donal Logue
    Stories to Tell: A Memoir by Richard Marx
    The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave (read by Rebecca Lowman)

    I really want Mariah to win but the Grammys is not friendly towards her. I think we all know where this is going to.

    MARIAH CAREY

    I think Amanda Gorman winning is a possibility. She made noise this and last year.
