    It should indeed be her!

    I hope Cicely’s audiobook is recognized with a nomination here as well. It depends on how much a FYC she gets, I suppose….

    Me too. On paper Cicely seems like an obvious choice. She’s got the pedigree of being an esteemed and legendary actress in various forms of media. Beloved in film, TV, and stage. The fact that the book was released the same week of her death is still insane to me. I’m crossing my fingers for her and Mariah to both get in alongside Barack. That would be an awesome line up of nominees.

    I so agree. That is insane she passed away the week the book was released. Cicely, Mariah & Barack would make 3 awesome nominees amongst the other two.

    Yeah, i’d be shocked at this point if Mariah isn’t nominated. I’m quite aware of their history with her. But FYC ads are everywhere for “The Meaning Of Mariah Carey”.

    This is for Mariah’s to lose but – a nomination will be her win! A nomination is possible but her not getting one wouldn’t be surprising.

    I see Cicely taking this home with Barack as the spoiler .

    I wouldn’t say it’s “Everywhere”. What we know is that they took out a generic ad with all their eligible nominees in the Billboard magazine, had a twitter post with all their eligible nominees, and apparently one other ad on socials.

    But that is about all we know.

    This is fairly minimal when compared to other acts.

    Hopefully her paperback release this week helps to garner headlines that reach voters.

    Why do you think voters have given Mariah the cold shoulder? Year after year. She’s one of the most successful and talented artists ever. So one would assume Grammy members would be kissing her feet. If she’s snubbed for The Meaning of Mariah then something truly isn’t right. Especially because her book was acclaimed.

    Her last nomination was in 2009 but her last great year was 2006. Definitely has to do with the new class of voters and the voting dynamic. I feel like she’s been blocked by the R&B committee when submitting there but she’s also been vocal about how she’s felt snubbed in the past and says she doesn’t care about the Grammys that much.

    What Cameron said. But the biases towards her are real with them. No subtleties there…

    I think we have to consider that voters are only able to vote in three categories. Will Mariah’s music peers choose Spoken Word album to vote explicitly for her or instead use their votes for other music genres instead?

    My gut says the latter.

    This is why I think they should do more to get in the face of those who normally vote in this category.

    A shame MC wasnt nominated here. But I am running with my theory above as one reason she was shut out.
