Stupid love lol, got a troll vote from me thoNovember 20, 2020 at 3:39 pm #1203851210
The nominations were tragic as hell. I liked the idea of having committee better because everything was all female pop driven.November 20, 2020 at 3:43 pm #1203851223
I think we should advocate for next year. That the maximum category a member can vote in is 5. The general field and 2 Genre of their choice. Because the RAP and R&B categories are a mess. Let members who really care and are knowledgeable about certain genres make the decision. And then afterwards everyone votes.November 20, 2020 at 4:11 pm #1203851298This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.November 20, 2020 at 4:16 pm #1203851304
GD received 1,000 votes. They are not having a committee decide when their site just attained a ton of traffic.
This is a fan forum poll. Not the Pulitzer Prize.

I saw loads of Gaga and Taylor fan pages on Twitter post about the GD music awards and it got shared a lot, so stans probably found it and voted. I hope people vote unbiasedly, don’t wanna see Gaga and/or Taylor winning everything.
Yeah but let’s be honest you know that’s what’s going to happenNovember 20, 2020 at 4:42 pm #1203851363
It’s so lame. This is supposed to be the awards for Gold Derby users. Not randoms.

That win is one of the reasons why I don’t fully take the Grammys seriously. Just embarrassing. And, yeah, “Stupid Love” in SOTY is clearly a troll vote.November 20, 2020 at 8:17 pm #1203851876
Are there some not great decisions here? Yes, artist nominations for Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and Beyoncé despite all barely releasing any music in the eligibility period, and “Stupid Love”, “WAP”, and “Fetch the Bolt Cutters” all receiving nominations in categories they didn’t even submit to at the Grammys are questionable to say the least. But did we get some cool out of left field picks? Yes, Punisher, Sawayama, Joji, and Orville Peck are interesting picks that we won’t likely get at the Grammys, so even if you personally didn’t vote for them I think they’re worth applauding.
I appreciate this sentiment, which is how I felt as I saw the votes coming in (for eligibility we left in what was eligible during the 12 months in contention in addition to what was submitted for Grammys, and let voters make whatever calls they decided). Stans got a lot of what they wanted with Taylor, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles (whose work all got significant acclaim), but we also got top noms for people who weren’t obvious stan picks like Rina Sawayama, Phoebe Bridgers, and Chloe x Halle.
I’m proud of the list we put together even though I myself don’t personally agree with all the picks. These are our first music awards. They’re voted on by users. And as JGibson pointed out, TV and movie fans are typically just as mad at us for our nominations every year. So if you’re outraged at our noms, it’s even more an indication that you’re a welcome member of the Gold Derby family. And I thank you all so much for your input as we’ve put these together. I care about music, and I want to serve this community as best I can 🙂November 20, 2020 at 9:17 pm #1203851936
I think I’m upset at the voters more than the people here overall. Even though there are some change to be made with the next award show, thank you moderators for listening to the users on the site! Amazing!

The annoying thing is that a lot of the votes weren’t even from regular Gold Derby users. Many votes came in from stans from Twitter, who created new accounts and voted for their favs, it kinda ruins the genuineness of the award.Not now
