Since Grammys 2019, these 3 names have taken multiple important noms and wins:
1. H.E.R: The young singer-songwriter born in 1997, was up for 5 Grammys in 2019, including AOTY and BNA, the following year she was up for AOTY, ROTY and SOTY, among others. This year, H.E.R is again nominated in the GF for the song I can’t breathe. Being only 23 years old, H.E.R has 13 Grammy nominations(incl. 2 wins).
2. Billie Eilish: After sweeping the general field last year, Billie is up for 4 Grammys this year, including Record and Song of the year. Being only 19 years old, Billie Eilish has already 10 Grammy nominations(incl. 5 wins).
3. Dua Lipa: Dua debuted at the 2019 Grammy awards where she won her first 2 Grammys(incl. BNA). This year she is up for 6 Grammy awards, including AOTY, ROTY and SOTY. At 25 years old, Dua has 8 Grammy nominations(incl. 2 wins).
Other notable female artists of the new gen have not been either easily considered for big awards(Ariana was nominated last year in the GF for the first time) or have been totally neglected, despite having notable commercial releases(Halsey, Selena Gomez).
Do you think the Grammys are pandering to specific artists or is it just coincidence?

I’d wait until their second “official” era before calling them favourites, just look at what happened during Maren Morris’ first era (2017-2019), she gathered 10 nomination (incl 2 GF and a country win).
Now in her second era (2019-present) she’s only received two nominations and missed (when predicted) both in the GF and genre categories for both her solo work and with The Highwomen.December 30, 2020 at 5:22 pm #1203953897
Yeah, you should wait. Especially in Eilish’s case. Her new noms are for just two songs (right?), one from a franchise that always gets its songs nominated, especially in recent years. And it’s become a pattern, I mean, for the third consecutive film they used the previous or current artist who just dominated the GF.
HER seems to be least likely because R&B artists tend to fade. Dua is very commercial and can keep going and Billie is way too young and could change it up in a very positive way with her second or third album. She has to, otherwise her music will get really old, really fast. If it hasn’t already.December 30, 2020 at 5:31 pm #1203953903
I feel like Billie and Dua’s noms have been mostly expected but H.E.R has gotten MANY surprise GF noms in just a couple of years, so she is definitely an Academy favorite for whatever reason.December 30, 2020 at 6:39 pm #1203953971
Too early to call them “favorites”, a Grammy favorite consistently receives several nominations in almost all of their eras. H.E.R and Billie are on their way to be there. Not too sure about Dua Lipa though.December 30, 2020 at 9:04 pm #1203954208
Get real! H.E.R. is NOT a Grammy favorite. She is a committee favorite. There is a difference. Girlfriend couldn’t even win in R&B in a weak ass year.December 31, 2020 at 6:45 am #1203954593
H.E.R is definitely an industry favorite. Getting so many GF noms without big commercial success isn’t common.
Billie seems to be working her way up there, but it’s still a little too soon. Same for Dua Lipa.
In terms of Pop, it’s safe to say Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, and Justin Bieber are consistent nominees.December 31, 2020 at 1:57 pm #1203955368
H.E.R. gives me future GF winner. All she needs is 1 big hit to sweep. The industry loves her.December 31, 2020 at 2:01 pm #1203955394
if dua wins 3 awards this year that’d make her 5/8 with just 2 albums, as a pure pop artist. i’d say that’s enough to be a favourite even if just temporaryJanuary 1, 2021 at 3:34 pm #1203956996
Honey, H.E.R. does NOT give me future General Field winner. The Grammys are super commercial now. She will never get a #1 hit.January 1, 2021 at 9:05 pm #1203957340
H.E.R. gives me future GF winner. All she needs is 1 big hit to sweep. The industry loves her.
the fact that she charts in the end of the top 100 of Billboard gives me hope.
