    Dear Goldderby Users, 

     

    I am here to inform you, that I would like to create our OWN music awards to honor the people that actually deserve the awards, not by a committee that hand selects the nominees or winners. Not the album or song that is the biggest song within the category.

     

    I think we can all agree that during the Grammy nomination announcement or awards ceremony, at one time or another, we don’t like the winners or nominees. I think we can agree that there are some winners this year that won’t be deserving. By this, it will gives us something to reference the taste of music these group of people have. 

     

    Lastly, I think the award show should symbolically be for the year 2020 only, so no singles or albums that were released in 2019 (PEMFBA, Fine Line, Blinding Lights, Don’t Start Now), unless there is an overwhelming support to do so like the Truth Hurts situation. Remember the songs don’t have to be singles, they can be deep cuts that everyone loves as well. 

     

    The first step is to create categories for our award ceremony that a majority of us can agree on. Post category ideas for the award categories you think deserve to be and whether it will be general field or genre categories. Like the ones you guys can agree should be an award. The deadline to do so will be around 2 weeks or so.

     

    If anyone would like to help with this situation moving forward giving input, pm me. You are more then likely to. Have a nice day!

    If you are going to post an award categories, post one award category at a time. Please don’t post a list. That way it will give me an idea of what people like and what people don’t like.

     

    Thank you :))))

    I don’t know I have always felt like the Grammys have way too many categories. If the Grammys were to scale back their categories to the same amount as the Oscars. They would be way more prestigious

    Edit: I think it’s much better if posters can post can post categories as well as liking posts if you don’t want to write it out.

     

    If you guys have certain rules as well, as like the number of nominees, the eligibility period, whatever post here 🙂

    besides some of the more obvious ones people have already said

    I think a best overall art direction category for both a single and album would be cool ? The visual aspect of a song/album is so important these days. It could focus on how well a concept looks, is thought out and consistency through album cover, music video(s), album packaging, maybe even things like live performance stage/set design and merch design (since almost everything has been bundled this year so far) etc.

    Certainly NOT Best New Artist. I am fine with using the Grammy categories, or those that are mostly popular in here; pop, rock, alternative (add alternative song), rap, country, visual media.

    I do think we need to get rid of performance, solo or duo, category and replace it with just song.

    Thanks for pulling this off btw.

    Oh, and a committee would be necessary too IMO. Otherwise I’m certain the nominations will end up similar to the Grammys.

    That would be the same.

    Artist and Album are two different things.

     

    Should instead of calling it AOTY, call it Project of the year? So that encompasses EPS and Mixtapes that drop this year?
