    Thinking about the time I played Devil’s Advocate a couple months ago and said The Weeknd might not get into SOTY and y’all crucified me for it…

    Still can’t believe zero nods at all for Abel. We thought he was winning a bare minimum of two awards

    FYC:

    Taylor Swift- AOTY, SOTY, Pop Duo/Group Performance, Pop Vocal Album

    Phoebe Bridgers- BNA, Rock Song, Rock Performance, Alternative Album

    Dua Lipa- ROTY, Pop Solo Performance

    Chloe x Halle- Traditional R&B Performance, R&B Song, Progressive R&B Album

    Honestly I doubt After Hours was even top 20.

    The comparisons to Rep make no sense. Reputation was largely seen as an artistic misstep and out of the two hits of the album, one wasn’t that big and was radio-driven and the other was universally seen as an artistic disaster, the Yummy of the year. And yet Taylor still got at least ONE nom in PVA, Abel got nothing despite being lightyears ahead of where Taylor was when she was “snubbed”. Taylor genuinely had to make a better album whereas Abel released what is arguably his best and most successful one and yet got even less than what Taylor did in her “bad” year.

    When Taylor cried she blamed no one but herself. There’s a difference. Both Abel and Taylor want approval but he resulted to blaming the academy and calling them corrupt. Taylor took the rejection and strived to make a better record. I get that Abel is hurt but calling the academy corrupt is so disrespectful to other artists. Some of these artists probably had to work even harder than Abel to be recognized. A lot of these artists don’t have a huge label backing them up or an expensive promotional campaign, specially during a pandemic. You think the AMAs and VMAs are checking for HAIM, Black Pumas, Jacob Collier?

    Blaming herself for what? For not winning a Grammy or not getting an AOTY nomination?

    I’m sorry but that’s ridiculous. An artist shouldn’t do an album thinking about how many grammys she would win with that.

    Should Abel cry and blame himself because the Grammys chose Yummy and Changes over Blinding Lights and After Hours? I have to laugh.

    I guess sometimes artists just want some validation from anywhere. She must have been counting on this one thing to work out for her, so the sentiment of trying to make a ‘better’  record makes sense. It’s a growth mindset thing

    After Hours couldn’t even beat Chnages and Chromatica.

    I think Folklore would have still won AOTY with After Hours there

    But you can’t use the Yummy / Changes situation because you don’t know how many people voted in the first round and how many people will vote to chose the winners in the final round. It’s like saying the whole academy prefers Yummy over Blinding Lights just because a few people pushed for a Yummy nomination in Pop solo.

    There’s still a possibility that Blinding Lights could have won ROTY if it was nominated (just like there’s still a possibility that Circles wins ROTY despite of not getting a Pop solo nomination)

    Just remember how everyone was saying Lizzo would win everything in the GF after that Pop solo win for Truth Hurts.

    Artists will only say it’s corrupt when it affects them. Had The Weeknd been nominated and another artist been snubbed and causing a stir, you know damn well he’d keep his mouth shut. It’s all just hypocrisy at the end of all this. Did he deserve a nod? Absolutely! But so did many other artists. It’s time to let it go. He’s no longer a contender. It’s clear the academy had no passion for his music in particular. There’s more to this then just being the most popular artist of the year. You don’t get valedictorian for being a prom king or the coolest person in school. It’s done.

    The cat’s out of the bag now. Legitimate criticisms of Grammy corruption have been debated and brought to the mainstream. No one is going to “let it go.” The Grammys have serious issues to address, which they will either do or not do. The Weeknd had every right to respond the way that he did in this instance when it affected him. That’s human nature. He did it in a public way, though I don’t find it any more admirable that Swift’s answer to being snubbed in the past was to make a better “For Your Grammy Consideration” album. When the status quo positively benefits your stan obsession, it’s apparently fine. Others think differently.

    Finishing Jaime, it’s been a while since I last heard the album and my girl Brittany got snubbed hard. Jaime with it’s engineering nom and r&b, rock/alternative and americana support would be the perfect AOTY winner this year.

    A lot of people on here are making such baseless assumptions. Although a few of the picks seem random, I don’t doubt that any of the albums nominated didn’t make Top 20.

    Coldplay are literally veterans within the industry. Voters could’ve been lazy and just name-checked them, since they’re near the top of the ballot. They also got a random Pop Album nomination for a flop EP in 2018 over Lorde, an AOTY nominee. They clearly have support. Everyday Life was also submitted to Rock Album, where the Rock committee could’ve blocked it.

    Jacob Collier has a ton of support from people within the industry including the likes of Quincy Jones who is his mentor.

    HAIM are highly respected musicians who released one of the most acclaimed albums of the year. They missed Alternative Album on a straight vote, however we’ve seen this happen before with the likes of Lana Del Rey missing Pop last year but still making AOTY.

    Jhené has one of the best selling R&B albums of the year. She also got nominated for AOTY at Soul Train, showcasing support for.

    Black Pumas were nominated for BNA last year, so they were clearly on voters’ radar. As I said before nominations, they had a minor hit and could surprise in the GF, which they did.

    I’ve said this numerous times now but there’s no point in guessing what was and what wasn’t in the Top 20, since it’s so unpredictable.

    I can bet big money that Jacob Collier and Black Pumas were not in the top 20. The other 6 we can understand. Every year since they expanded to 8 – 2 contenders in the lineup just seem like write-ins.

    I do believe After Hours is in the Top 20, no question. But I think he’s not in the Top 8 so he needs BRP to get into the final list but BRP have some candidates in their mind and choose them instead. His situation is not same as Ed Sheeran.

    For you consideration :

    Album of the year : folklore
    Record of the year : Don't Start Now
    Song of the year : cardigan
    Best new artist : Phoebe Bridgers

    Best pop vocal album : folklore
    Best rap album : Alfredo
    Best alternative music album : Fetch the Bolt Cutters
    Best progressive R&B album : Ungodly Hour
