    The Rina stuff is making huge headlines and there’s plenty of time for them to change the rules. I have a feeling they’ll change it and nominate her for british breakthrough artist

    FYC Best Actress 2021: Viola Davis!!!

    It’s odd because the Song/Single of the Year is compiled from the 10 biggest songs in the UK (chart-wise) from 1 artist each (unless it’s a feature like double Dua – One Kiss & IDGAF – in 2019).

    And since streaming was introduced in 2014, only 7% of the overall nominees were released post-July (2015 – Uptown Funk & Thinking Out Loud; 2016 – Hello; 2017 – Shout Out to My Ex & Say You Won’t Let Go).

    Using the OfficialCharts Top 40 Year End so far, taking away the 2018 holdovers & the multiples from Dua, Lewis & Harry. The nomination slate would look like

    • Dua Lipa – Don’t Start Now
    • Lewis Capaldi – Before You Now
    • Stormzy (feat. Ed Sheeran & Burna Boy) – Own It
    • Joel Corry – Lonely
    • Harry Styles – Adore You
    • Becky Hill (feat. Shift K3Y) – Better Off Without You
    • Aitch & AJ Tracey (feat. Tay Keith) – Rain
    • S1mba (feat. DTG) – Rover
    • Endor – Pump It Up

    Lonely & Adore You look like they will be replaced by Head & Heart and Watermelon Sugar giving as they’re shaping up to be bigger hits.

    The only current top 40 hit on the charts right that I can see being a big at the end of the year is West Ten from AJ Tracey & Mabel.

    can see dua winning 3 awards tbh (best album, best single, best female). best single could also likely go to harry styles though

    I think they’ll give best Single to Harry since he isn’t eligible for Album or Male, and they’ll want to reward him for the big year he had. Dua will win Female and Album without any doubt.

    i was going to say that but i wasn’t 100% sure how the brits work and if it would be possible for them to ensure harry gets something

    Why wouldn’t he be eligible?

    He was nominated last ceremony for Best British Male Artist and British Album of The Year. He lost in both categories.

    He’s not eligible because he hasn’t released an album during this year’s eligibility period, not because he was already nominated last year.

    Dua Lipa is luckily having the biggest album of 2020 in UK. It is approaching 200,000 units in UK.  One would expect her to get the Album of the year and the song of the year luckily.

    I think Laura Narling and Dua Lipa will match up for British Female.

    Album of the Year:

    Future Nostalgia
    Song for our Daughter
    Notes on a Conditional Form

    I think we’ll get the other 2 nominees in the Fall.

    I just took a look to the British Female winners in the last few years. They usually go with the biggest/most famous artist of the year, they choose indie artists if big names are missing. Dua had a huge year and the best selling album, and she already beat Marling in 2018 so she’ll easily take this one.

    As for AOTY, I don’t know. This year Capaldi (luckliy) lost despite having the biggest album of the year so idk. I still believe Dua will win since the competition is not really strong so far.

    I believe they’ll give British Single to Harry since he is not eligible for Male and Album so this is the only place to award him. They did that also with One Direction once (What Makes You Beautiful won againist Someone Like You…. A TRAGEDY).
