The fact that she hasn’t won in the general field remains a travesty
Andra Day should be winning Best ActressFebruary 28, 2020 at 3:37 pm #1203364246
The Fame was not the only hit-studded album in that year’s lineup. The Beyoncé, BEP, and Taylor Swift albums all spawned several smash hits. Billie may not have had multiple top ten hits from her album, but she had way more momentum than any of the other nominees…
… And Lizzo’s case wouldn’t have been the same because she was nominated for the first time this year; Gaga had been nominated prior to being nominated across the board in the GF.
My statement/comparison of The Fame’s success vs. what Billie accomplished this year with her debut was just to point out how gauging an artist’s Grammy “worthiness” changes frequently. Had Gaga released a pop album as acclaimed and commercially successful as The Fame, with 4 top 10 hits on it, she would have been the hands-down favorite for the major categories. Chart position was talked about here as a definitive marker for ROTY/SOTY contenders, whereas during Gaga’s early years, we saw the likes of Beck, Mumford & Sons, Herbie Hancock, and The Suburbs winning AOTY, for example.
I think Billie had little competition this awards season, though I do truly believe ASIB should have been nominated and as a biased Gaga stan, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be competitive. It had a #1 hit that smashed worldwide, commercial success despite being a movie soundtrack, incorporated multiple genres, and 3 of its songs were nominated for awards, with 2 of them winning.
RE: Lizzo, I understand why Gaga was ineligible and Lizzo eligible; but, the fact that the rules were revised right after the 2010 season means they could have revised them a year sooner if they wanted is all. In reality, BNA should be Breakthrough Artist, since it continues to be an inconsistent indicator of rising talent in the industry.March 3, 2020 at 6:13 am #1203368743

Bad Romance should have won record
poker face should have won songJanuary 29, 2021 at 9:44 am #1204008573
Get real! “Bad Romance” should NOT have won Record of the Year. “Poker Face” most certainly should NOT have won Song of the Year. The lyrics to “Poker Face” are atrocious. BARF!January 29, 2021 at 10:42 am #1204008651
I think Gaga deserved everything she’s won for and she has enough Grammys. I do think she was snubbed in Record of the Year for Bad Romance. She wouldn’t have won tho.

FadGa already has way too many Grammys as it is, most of them undeserved and thanks to lack of competition.
Her only deserved or okay wins:
Pop Vocal Album for The Fame Monster
Female Pop Vocal for Bad Romance
Music Video for Bad Romance
Pop Duo/Group for Shallow
Would’ve been a worthy winner or nominee for The Edge of Glory and You And I for Pop Solo and would’ve deserved ROTY for TEOG had it been a bigger, WW hit.
Bad Romance should’ve been nominated for ROTY and SOTY, Poker Face should’ve been snubbed altogether because it’s trash. The Fame didn’t deserve its Dance/Electronic Album win for the same reason. Cheek to Cheek isn’t good, Joanne‘s win is a joke and the ASIB/I’ll Never Love Again wins were obvious but still bad. She never deserved AOTY or SOTY.
