    Was this public knowledge? It seemed like most of us were still under the impression that only General Field nominees were decided by the panels. A few months ago I posted a thread speculating on why The Weeknd was snubbed from even the Pop Field, and not one person suggested that it could’ve been the blue ribbon panel.

    Now it all makes sense. What I don’t understand though is how the Grammys have managed to get away with such staggering lack of transparency. It’s one thing to have secret committees, but it’s completely out of line to hide the fact from the public, so much so that even the fulltime award watchers seemed to be in the dark. This is borderline corruption, and arguably worse than what the Golden Globes have done.

    Some of the genres like Rap, R&B and Country did have secret panels of their own. But that was already public knowledge and the nominees in those categories were thus decided by those panels,

    Pop however has never had a panel

    This was common knowledge to anyone paying attention to Grammy nominations. The casual viewer of the show might not know, just like casual football viewers don’t know the rules of the game.

    Pop doesn’t have a committee and The Weednd lost for other reasons

    The Grammys have made this public knowledge for years. There was even a diagram posted on their website of which fields were chosen by committees and which ones weren’t. Pop was one of the few fields not determined by a committee. This is a non-story.

    Pop, Alternative, Comedy Album, Spoken Word to be specific.

    Yeah, like everyone else said, a committee didn’t screw The Weeknd out of pop nominations. He just didn’t have the votes.

    Genre panels actually existed in smaller categories like Jazz before the GF one. Thats what inspired its expansion.

    If you want a real scandal how about this one.

    The Recording Academy and former president-CEO Deborah Dugan have reached a settlement following an arbitration process.

    The two parties issued a joint statement Thursday night that says simply: “The Recording Academy and Deborah Dugan have agreed to resolve their differences and to keep the terms of their agreement private.”

    There appear to have been allegations of multiple instances of misconduct, including improprieties in the Grammy voting procedure, egregious conflicts of interest, exorbitant legal fees paid to outside law firms and attorney Joel Katz, claims of sexual misconduct by Neil Portnow and Joel Katz and more.

    But no-one will know the outcome of the settlement, including artists and other Grammy members who pay membership fees to the Recording Academy, even though some of that money will almost certainly be going to Dugan so that she doesn’t tell people what she knows.
