    IMO we shouldn’t have too many categories as the Grammys.

    I’d say:
    1. Best Album
    2. Best Record
    3. Best Song
    4. Best New Artist
    5. Best Music Video or Film
    6. Best Producer

    Album and Record should only allow studio recordings. Also, if we want to have some diversity, we can split some categories in english language x not english language or independent x non-independent.

    I agree with most of the above but I would add an Adult Alternative or AAA Category that some acts that put out excellent songs or albums but are not necessarily at their peak anymore can get some recognition and the Alternative can have more current relevant acts

    Hi guys!

    Building of the Gold Derby Music Awards even is well underway and I hope to have it launched this week. I’ve decided on what categories will be, and I know a lot of you want a big, robust event, and I’d love to give it to you, but keep in mind that each and every new candidate needs to be added to the system one at a time, so if I try to be too comprehensive the awards will never go forward at all. Looking ahead to next year, I can up the number of categories since I’ll be able to work on candidates over time (I’ve already started a preliminary list of albums and songs for the 2022 Grammys and will keep the GDMAs in mind as I do that).

    Anyway, there will be 12 categories this year:

    GENERAL FIELD (10 nominees per category, you’ll be able to vote for your top 5 in order of preference):

    Artist of the Year
    Album of the Year
    Record of the Year
    Song of the Year
    Best New Artist

    GENRE (5 nominees per category, you’ll be able to vote for your top 3 in order of preference)

    Best Pop Artist
    Best R&B Artist
    Best Rock/Alternative Artist
    Best Rap/Hip Hop Artist
    Best Country/Americana Artist
    Best Latin Artist

    Best Music Video

    In genre categories, I’m going to approach those sort of like the American Music Awards do: if an artist straddles genres, I’ll include them and allow them to be nominated in multiple categories if they get enough votes (for instance, I’ll put Post Malone in both pop and rap/hip-hop).

    And I’ll let you guys request additions if you want to vote for someone in a category who’s missing. I’ll add missing contenders on a case-by-case basis.

    Thanks for your patience everyone, and I hope you guys have fun with these when I launch them.

    I love the idea of a GoldDerby Music Awards, but I think it is a huge mistake to have only those categories especially if they are artist categories. I feel the other awards done on the sight are presented as prestigious but doing the music awards this way makes it seem just fan made
