    I have my doubts that Blinding Lights made the top 20

    Circles was probably ahead of it in BPSP, making it 8th at the bare minimum. Wouldn’t be surprised if Stupid Love also beat it. If it couldn’t get support from the pop field, then why would it beat other songs that had support from various genres?

    Not to mention, I find it weird that the BRP wouldn’t just put the Weeknd into SOMETHING. They had to know there’d be backlash

    Agreed. I still say that voters are very lazy and refuse to go throw the entire lists. Didn’t one category have close to 2,000 submissions?

    I noticed a lot of the surprise nominees or just nominees in general set at the top of the list. For instance, AOTY has [Jhené] Aiko, Black Pumas, Coldplay, [Jacob] Collier, HAIM, and then frontrunners [Dua] Lipa, Post Malone and [Taylor] Swift, who were further down on the lists. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is how the top 20 looked in general. There has always been theories at award shows, such as the Emmys, that ABC order typically dominates. I feel like that’s what happened in Pop Solo and Pop Group a couple of years ago, which led to a surprise snub for Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” and surprise nominations for Beck, Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera. There was an indie artist on Twitter who said a lot of voters he knows are indeed lazy and will check off the pop names first or whoever is recognizable enough at the top of the list. He said this when his ballot came in the mail. I could see this being true if HDD’s info is true about there not being a whole lot of voters in the nominations round.

    But it is weird if there was not enough passionate voters to search for The Weeknd like they did Taylor Swift and place him in the top 20.

    It’s obvious they snub some people overnominate others, because they want to award an specific artist or give them an edge. It’s just blatantly disgusting how they’re benefiting Taylor and Dua in Album of The Year, let’s just say it.

    They always nominate the biggest artists commercially, because who thinks Post Malone is there based on quality or being one of the best.

    They should publish the top 20 in all 4 GF categories or other tops weeks before nominations, just like the oscars do with their shortlists. That’s transparency.

    Don’t the BAFTAs do this too? Or at least publish the damn submission lists 🙄

    If that is true, The weeknd should just go by “Abel” from now on and problem solved.

    Oscars don’t do that with their main categories. you’re either nominated publicly or not. that would create an “almost nominated” or “pre-nominated” narrative

    The Grammys should switch the alphabetical order of the lists during the first round voting every year.

    It would only be fair, cause the name advantage seems to be real.

    That’s the crux of the issue–did The Weeknd make the top 20 GF lists or not? I think he did and was then tossed out for others, b/c Coldplay just had to be included in AOTY for some reason, for example. That’s BRP overreach, and this time it backfired on them. I’d love to see the longlists published. Thx max! I’d take it a step further and let the popular vote prevail like the Oscars. If Abel didn’t make the top 20, then we’d know beforehand and that’s that. On nominations day, we get the final 8 by popular votes with no BRP involvement. If quarantined voting led to depresssd turnout + genre confusion, I think that helps explain why Abel was shut out in Pop. If < 100 voters determined the nominees this year, then I get why Justin stumbled into all of his nods instead too, unfortunately.

    I think max is referring to the bake-off categories. There are certainly longlists leading up to nominations day. Not the major categories, true.

    Imagine if the only reason they chose Coldplay is because the other options were even worse 🤡

    Do you guys think that maybe due to pandemic the they decided to nominate more obscure acts who were affected by the pandemic? Specially in Album of the year? Nominate acts that can’t afford an in your face campaign like Ables?

    I predict that the worst is yet to come for 2022 Grammys. They would snub Drake.
