    Are these considered Grammy precursors?

    No but I’m surprised that Taylor didn’t come on top. Literally every thread is full of her stans lol

    The nominations were tragic as hell. I liked the idea of having committee better because everything was all female pop driven.

    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.

    If the Grammys and VMAs merged, this is what we would get.

    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 happen

    It’s so lame. This is supposed to be the awards for Gold Derby users. Not randoms.

    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 recieving 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.

    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.

    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 🙂

    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!

    RIP SOPHIE

    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.
