…what would it be? I’ll focus on the last decade but feel free to go further back.June 14, 2019 at 6:48 am #1202937514
Most years there are many choices I disagree with but not necessarily one that sticks out to me more than the rest. It can be hard to pick just one.
2010: I think I would give Song of the Year to “Use Somebody” over “Single Ladies” but I’m not too sure.
2011: There doesn’t seem to be anything too glaring here actually, I think I’d give BNA to Florence + the Machine but Esperanza Spalding’s win isn’t bad at all.
2012: I’d give R&B Album to Pieces of Me by Ledisi over Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E.
Also, Speak Now in Country Album over Lady Antebellum’s Own the Night.
2013: channel ORANGE by Frank Ocean over Babel by Mumford and Sons in AOTY.
2014: Kendrick Lamar, in my opinion, should have beat Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in all of the 3 categories they won. But of these, the most notorious is good kid, m.A.A.d city being looked over in favor of The Heist in Rap Album.
2015: I think BEYONCÉ should have won AOTY, but the worse snub was her being beat in Urban Contemporary by Pharrell’s G I R L.
I also think “Chandelier” was really deserving of some recognition, I’d give it Pop Solo over “Happy (Live)” at the bare minimum.
2016: Meghan Trainor winning BNA wasn’t great, but I think I’d rather give AOTY to To Pimp A Butterfly instead of 1989.
2017: Similar to 2015 I think Beyoncé should’ve won AOTY with Lemonade, but the more glaring loss is The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years winning Music Film.
2018: Perhaps I’d give Melodrama AOTY over 24K Magic, though I’d probably change all the GF winners. I would also really want SZA’s Ctrl to win over The Weeknd’s Starboy in Urban Contemporary.
2019: In hindsight this year’s winners really weren’t bad. I’d want SOPHIE to win Dance Album with Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides. Though she wasn’t nominated, I really wish Janelle Monáe could’ve been won Urban Contemporary for Dirty Computer. H.E.R. should’ve gotten BNA and I’m not the biggest fan of “This Is America”’s win in SOTY, but that’s not really answering the question. None of these are especially bad.
They just really did Janelle dirty.June 14, 2019 at 8:36 am #1202937666
2010 – The Fame DESERVED AOTY. Huge snub.
2011 – Train’s atrocious “Hey Soul Sister” winning was already a terrible win, but to give them the award over the phenomenon that was GLEE? Ugh. Don’t Stop Believin’ (Regionals Version) should’ve been an easy win.
2012 – Maybe Royal Tailor for Best Contemporary Christian Album??? This ceremony had weak nominees overall.
2013 – Don’t You Worry Child should’ve been an easy for Swedish House Mafia in Dance Recording considering it was a big farewell hit for them.
2014 – Best Rap Song should’ve gone to New Slaves. Easily one of Kanye’s best song, and way better than anything else in that line-up.
2015 – Chandelier for Pop Solo. Happy (Live) is one of the worst wins in Pop history, specially with strong competition from Sia. One of the most painful snubs in my eyes.
2016 – The most dissapointing winner was Jack U in Dance/Electronic Album. Jamiexx’s In Colour is one of the best Electronic albums of all time. He was robbed.
2017 – Definitely Pop Vocal Album. Adele was winning a bunch of awards anyways, so definitely would’ve given Pop Vocal to the iconic Dangerous Woman.
2018 – AOTY definitely belonged to Lorde. Melodrama is my favourite album of all time, and she was robbed of that award. Pop Solo should’ve gone to Praying as well but Kesha will be back soon.
2019 – I think most winners were spot on, but I would’ve given Rap Song to SICKO MODE instead of God’s Plan. Would’ve been a Drake win regardless, and SICKO MODE was one of the best songs of 2018.June 14, 2019 at 9:16 am #1202937743
Sicko Mode was viciously overrated. It’s fine. I’d rather them give it to Kendrick than anything Drake related.June 14, 2019 at 9:28 am #1202937757

2006 – Album of the Year – The Emancipation of Mimi (you can still see its influence/ cultural impact on R&B today – its the female equivalent to Usher’s Confessions and the best selling female R&B album of the 21st Century, a testament to Mariah’s longevity. How U2 won is beyond me…) (Also Song of the Year or Record of the Year – We Belong Together)
2008 – Album of the Year – Back to Back (Amy Winehouse ran so Adele could walk. I still have this album on REPEAT)
2012 – Album of the Year – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (as much as I detest Kanye these days, this album really is a modern Hip-Hop classics and is still so ahead of its times).
2015 – Album of the Year – Beyonce (no explanation needed)
2016 – Album of the Year – Anti (I personally thought this deserved it, based on the fact I enjoyed it much more than Lemonade)
Common trend: more urban-oriented albums tend to get snubbed in the GF…June 14, 2019 at 1:13 pm #1202938126
2018- Give all of Bruno’s general field wins to Lorde/Kendrick/Julia or Logic and company
Then GIVE SZA BNA…
that’s allJune 14, 2019 at 4:25 pm #1202938387

“Bye Bye Bye” – *NSync winning ROTY over U2June 15, 2019 at 8:32 am #1202939015
1994: R.E.M.’s Automatic For The People should have won Album Of The Year over The Bodyguard soundtrack. Yes, I know The Bodyguard is one of the most iconic soundtrack albums of all time, and “I Will Always Love” you is wholly deserving of its Record Of The Year win, but Automatic For The People is simply put, the best album of the entire 1990s. Yes, you read that correctly.June 15, 2019 at 8:42 am #1202939051
