Adding a visual media field would be niceOctober 21, 2021 at 8:45 am #1204530074
I think Dance/Electronic Artist/Song & Album
and a Visual Media field.
Also, you should make it so each Goldderby member submits via post the genre categories they are going to vote for, (I don’t know the limit you set). So that way each goldderby member only votes in the general field, and their top genre categories.October 21, 2021 at 9:05 am #1204530154
The inclusion of song categories is a very welcome change! However, I still feel some representation for other fields and genres is missing. My suggestion would be to include the following:
MUSIC FOR VISUAL MEDIA
– Best Song Written For Visual Media
– Best Original Score/Compilation Soundtrack
– Best Latin Pop or Urban Album
– Best Latin Rock, Roots or Alternative AlbumFYC: 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards
Billie Eilish: Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Pop Vocal Album
Arlo Parks: Best Alternative Music Album
Jazmine Sullivan: Best R&B Album
Tyler, The Creator: Best Rap AlbumOctober 21, 2021 at 9:52 am #1204530307
Are we doing performance/song splits? or solo vs group/duo splits? I sorta like the idea of sharing the wealth, there are so many deserving artists.
Maybe the aforementioned: Artist, Song, Record, Album, New Artist, Music Video, Collab
as well as per category:
Artist, Album, Solo Performance, Collab/Group Performance (each artist would only be able to get 1 nomination, however I propose that an artist COULD be nominated in 2 different genres, like a rapper being nominated in both Rap Group/Duo & Pop Group/Duo as a feature), Song
– 5 categories per genre.
with Country/Americana, Rock/Alternative, Pop, R&B, Rap/Hip-Hop, EDM, & Latin that would be 35 genre categories plus the 7 GF equals 42 categories with the potential Song & Soundtrack for Visual Media could be 44 categories.
I just think that the more categories that are there, the more artists that will be able to receive recognition.
also, how many nominees will there be per category?October 21, 2021 at 11:16 am #1204530441
I think the problem with Latino is that not many in the forum know about Latin music although the members of the Latin Grammys forum can help.
I think that many categories could saturate a lot so my idea is to divide the song categories like this:
Best Song (Genre) Solo
Best Song (Genre) Duo / Group
Both would recognize both artists, producers and songwriters. Dance for obvious reasons would be the only one that would not use this division.October 21, 2021 at 11:59 am #1204530546
It should be one genre per artist. It may suck for the people who span multiple genres but let’s look at someone like Doja Cat for instance. Will she compete as a Pop or Rap Artist? Can’t be in both. For song categories they can compete it multiple genres : Ex: Kiss Me More (Pop), Streets (R&B)October 22, 2021 at 12:35 pm #1204532712
I also think that Dance music should not be snubbed and at least deserves a category (it can be any: Album, Artist or Song)
Exactly, considering artists from its genre like Daft Punk, Zedd, Skrillex & Diplo have become nominees in general categories, they should be treated as their own field. Porter Robinson’s “Nurture” album would be out of place in the Pop categoryOctober 23, 2021 at 10:51 am #1204534315
thank you for all of your hard work, Daniel. We really appreciate it. 🙂 when can we look forward to being able to fill out our ballots? and how many nominees will there be in certain categories?

How many votes can we give in each category?
<p style=”text-align: left;”>1? 5?</p>
If more than 1, is it like 5 points for the first one and 1 point to the last one? Or has it the same value?October 26, 2021 at 7:35 pm #1204542148

I’m hoping to launch them before the end of the week to give people a couple of weeks to vote and then announce before Grammy noms. I’ve been spending most of the day referring to the music forum genre threads to fill out some genre fields where I hadn’t already added as many candidates for the Grammys predictions center like rock and R&B. It’s an even bigger job than I expected since I’m less personally knowledgeable in some genres.
Seeing some of the suggestions and requests above, I’m resigned to the fact that I’m gonna make some of y’all mad when these launch LOL. In an ideal world I’d be able to create categories for everything, and add every possible artist/album/song, but that simply won’t be possible since I’m a one-man-band entering hundreds of candidates. But I appreciate all the feedback, and once it’s launched I’ll invite you to DM me with anyone I’ve missed who you would like to vote for in a category, and I’ll do my best to accommodate those requests.
To answer the above question and a related question someone else asked, you’ll be able to vote for 5 in the top categories (Artist, Record, Album, Song, New Artist) in order of preference. Your number one choice will get 5 points, next will get 4, and so on down the line. There will be 10 nominees in these categories.
For all other categories (genre, collaboration, music videos), you will vote for your top 3 in order of preference (your top choice gets 3 points, second gets 2, third gets 1). There will ultimately be 5 nominees in each of these categories.
And I can confirm that I will be including some artists/songs/albums across multiple genres. If any of them get enough votes to be nominated in two different genres, I will only nominate them in the category where they got more votes. That way I don’t have to rely on the Grammys’ sometimes quirky genre decisions or impose my own judgments. If you’re worried they’ll split votes across genres, you’re welcome to vote for them in both places.October 26, 2021 at 8:06 pm #1204542170
Please put transparent soul in both grammy predictions and in the goldderby choices! thank you!October 27, 2021 at 7:10 am #1204542737
Thank you for your effort and I think you can ask other members for help to organize with the nominations, as a kind of clear committee that is more transparent.
Again, thank you for making this possible.October 27, 2021 at 5:37 pm #1204543779
I’m just gonna say: Keep the Latin Artist category. I’m ok with having no categories for song of performance for Latin songs because it’s a lot (I’m happy to help with those)October 28, 2021 at 5:32 am #1204544319
Please put Fred Again in Best New Artist (it will be my top pick) and New Bikini by Cassandra Jenkins in SOTY (listen to those lyrics guys). Also His&Hers by Internet Money (for me it is the deluxe perfect version of Lemonade which they released last year)Not now
