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

    It includes film scores, TV and video games scores may be too niche to most of us

    Honey, there is no need for a Gold Derby Music Awards.  Nix this idea!

    Or just let people vote for whoever they want lol

    There’s a strong difference between the likes of ROSALIA (often does Pop in Spanish) and Felipe Palez (core latin music). Of course people can “choose whatever they want.” Just a suggestion.

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

    I agree with all the ones Boz listed except Artist of the Year.

    Latin & Dance are probably too niche for GD as well.

    Please, let’s keep Rock and Alternative Album separated. The latter is so much more interesting than the former.

    Thanks for all the feedback. You have already given us a lot to consider. Anyone else want to chime in?

    I think there’s a big latin community here at GD. (We even have a Latin Grammys thread).

    Dance could be.

    pretty much pleased with what’s been presented except I’d much rather have standalone alternative categories, the rock submissions these days are too dull anyway

    The toughest part will be making sure our lists of contenders in each category are expansive enough. We won’t be able to include every suggested performer/track/album – these could number into the high double digits.

    I just ask that you be patient with us as we tackle this big project in the coming weeks. We are sure to make missteps and suffer from some growing pains but we are coming at this from a good place.

    If we decide not to include a specific category or your favorite genre, that doesn’t mean it will never happen. Indeed, your feedback will ensure that these awards evolve just as the film and TV ones have done over the years.

    Thanks for everything so far, Paul.

    Please have separate categories for Male and Female Pop Vocal Awards.

    Please have separate categories for Male and Female Pop Vocal Awards.

    Personally don’t see this as necessary, it creates too many nominees and doesn’t even happen at the Grammys anymore. There’s no difference in style between pop sung by a man and pop sung by a woman, I don’t see why they should be separated.

    Latin Performance
    Latin Song
    Latin Album

    I prefer to separate “Best Latin Album” into two different categories:
    1. BEST LATIN POP/URBAN ALBUM
    2. BEST LATIN ALTERNATIVE or TRADITIONAL ALBUM (rock, alternative, tropical, reggae, mexican, folk…)
