    I asked this in another thread but thought it should be a stand-alone topic.

    What would be your ideal format for the Gold Derby Music Awards?

    Should they mirror the Grammys and then add certain categories – as we do with Film/Oscars and TV/Emmys?

    Kai thought:

    I think if we were to do Gold Derby Music Awards, we should use the real life Grammy submissions of artists. Its far too tedious and time consuming to have a “submission stage” where users decide which songs they want to SUBMIT. Using the real life submissions not only makes it easier and fairer for all the contenders, but will also be better to compare between the forum’s decisions and the Grammys.

    Where’s American Roots, World and Jazz? Record of the Year is need as well.

    Also, please, try to make predictions for nominations in genre fields possible and not just general field ones.

    Then, all 84 nominations should be open for prediction and not just a few of them.

    I think American Roots is too niche for GD. It’s best if it’s combined with Country. Jazz and World I also think are too niche.

    I think this list is comprehensive enough. Also we can do Song/Record since we, unlike many actual voters, know the difference. Thoughts?

    Boz categories seem the best fit and Kai’s take on submissions should be followed.

    Thanks for the initiative to make those awards btw.

    Legit Dance Songs are pop songs with different production. You can have Dance recording or performance or both, but a songwriting category for dance music specifically isn’t needed imo.

    The rest are fine.

    For the Latin categories, please focus on niche Latin music like salsa and not pop in Spanish/Portuguese.

    I repeat, the Dance category should not get a songwriting category. Dance music is pop songs with exaggerated production. Same with Alternative music, they’re rock or pop songs with weird production styles. They both deserve recording categories. That’s why it’s called Best Dance recording and not performance at the Grammys.

    I’m not convinced Country and American Roots should be merged but it’s not a particularly bad merger. Five distinct categories already compete for the normal AR performance and song categories.

    GOSPEL AND CHRISTIAN MUSIC PLEASE!!! Best Gospel/Christian Music Song, Performance and Album.

    I think Boz’s categories are the best, but we could add Best Live Performance; Nominees could be chosen not just from awards shows performances, but also from performances on late-night TV shows and SNL.

    Do those categories include soundtracks or scores from television, video games, & film?
