    Adele’s 25 sweep over Lemonade is an extremely controversial gray area. I think after Macklemore winning over Kendrick, it’s something that generated the most controversy and discussion. I mean, even Adele knew it. Does anything more need to be said? Sweeps are boring anyway. There are multiple deserving nominees each year. 2021 and 2022 ceremonies ended up good because they didn’t throw all their awards at the same person because of laziness.

    Honey, very few people care that 25 won Album of the Year over Lemonade.  Adele was kissing Beyoncé’s ass because she’s a fan.  Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (BARF!) winning over Kendrick Lamar is NOT comparable for obvious reasons.

    Sweeps are NOT boring when they are deserved.  It has nothing to do with voters being lazy.

    Do you think Brandi will submit ‘You and Me on the Rock’ in Pop? It does not sound like pop. I liked her album (not her best, but solid) and I think it would deserve an AOTY nomination.

    Girl, Macklemore winning over Kendrick Lamar is definitely comparable, though I will concede, it was 100x more egregious than the Beyoncé snub because 25 was still a good album and Adele had a career peak again.

    Hard disagree about very few people caring. This trended on Twitter and Instagram for days and incited many discussions over the years. Even the ones who generally don’t care about award shows knew that Beyoncé was snubbed hard. Adele was on that stage breaking her Grammys and paying her respects to Beyoncé because she knew the entire optics were going to be really bad and Lemonade’s cultural relevance was out of the park.

    Other new updates:

    Album Eligibility
    To be eligible for Grammy Award consideration, an album must contain greater than 75% playing time of newly recorded (within five years of the release date), previously unreleased recordings*. The previous eligibility rule was 50%. (Note: Best Compilation Soundtrack, Best Historical Album, Best Immersive Audio Album, Best Recording Package, Best Special Package, and Best Album Notes accept albums of recordings that are not newly recorded.)

    Classical Field: Creation of Craft Committees in Select Classical Categories
    Three Categories within the Classical Field will now be determined by highly specialized Craft Committees: Producer of the Year (Classical), Best Engineered Album (Classical) and Best Contemporary Classical Composition.

    Classical Field: Recognition of Composers and Librettists in Best Opera Recording and Best Classical Compendium Categories
    Category definitions have been updated to award composers and librettists in addition to artists, producers and engineers.

    New Age, Ambient or Chant Field: Renamed And Redefined Field and Category Name
    The category formerly known as “Best New Age Album” has been renamed “Best New Age, Ambient Or Chant Album” and the Field name has also been updated to reflect that change.

    Musical Theater Field: Recognition of Composers and Lyricists in Best Musical Theater Album Category
    Category definition has been updated to award composers and lyricists of more than 50% of the score of a new recording.

    Music for Visual Media Field (Includes Film, TV, Video Games, And Other Visual Media): Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media
    Some language in the criteria for this Category which had been removed has now been restored to recognize principal artists and in-studio producers.

    Production Field: Updated Definition of Best Remixed Recording Category
    The newly amended definition of the Best Remixed Recording Category helps to reflect the remix craft as it currently stands in the industry: the creation of a new, full-track, unique performance created by a remixer from a previously released recording.

    Spoken Word Field: Updated Category Name and Definition
    The category formally known as Spoken Word Album has been renamed Best Audio Book, Narration & Storytelling Recording. This category recognizes excellence in spoken word albums (not including Spoken Word Poetry).

    Have a great day if you see this!

    Love these categories!

    I’m hoping Florence + the Machine has a little more chance to finally win once with Alternative performance.

    The Big Thief situation has left them in a tricky position. They’re topping all of the best of the year so far lists, but then the Israel show back and forth is a bad look for their fanbase. This isn’t to say if the show they are doing is right or wrong, but more to do with their response to both putting the show on and then cancelling. Their fanbase tends to be a bit more of the far-left and now a lot of the indie music sites are dragging them… we’ll see if this is forgotten about as the year goes on.

    I’m curious to see how Songwriter of the Year pans out. It seems like a niche category that a few key players will consistently dominate. There aren’t very many well-known songwriters who are writing well-known songs that they aren’t also performing.

    didn’t they cut down a bunch of categories some years ago b/c it was cumbersome and 90% of the categories aren’t even mentioned at the actual ceremony?

    now we have Social Change and Video Game categories. mmm.

    They saw the Rock field FIASCO of last year and immediately created Best Alternative Music Performance.

    now that they introduced the new category in American roots for best Americana Performance it could be put there. But I feel like dependent on if she decides she submits other songs for American roots field. Her being being put in pop with that song wouldn’t be so far fetch if she already taken care of in her field.
