    ALBUM OF THE YEAR – 1985

    Can’t Slow Down – Lionel Richie – WINNER
    She’s So Unusual – Cyndi Lauper
    Purple Rain – Prince & The Revolution
    Born in the U.S.A. – Bruce Springsteen
    Private Dancer – Tina Turner

    I can see how Lionel Richie won, but my pick would have been either Tina Turner for the sweep of the big categories or Prince.

    Same reason Bruno Mars won in 2018, most commercial successful and safest pick amongst older voters.

    2005 ROCK DUO OR GROUP

    U2 “Vertigo” – WINNER
    Elvis Costello and The Imposters – “Monkey to Man”
    Franz Ferdinand – “Take Me Out”
    Green Day – “American Idiot”
    The Killers – “Somebody Told Me”

    I think U2 won awards that they did not deserve

    Gotye over Fiona Apple in Best Alternative Music Album in 2013.

    Macklemore over Kendrick Lamar is obvious bullshit.

    Steely Dan over Radiohead and Eminem is a crime.

    Taylor over Kendrick is just a popularity stuff.

    Mumford and Sons and fun. over Frank Ocean is also a crime.

    Celine Dion over Beck in 1997.

    Adele over Beyonce in 2017.

    Golden Hour over Dirty Computer. I don’t care about y’all but Golden Hour is such an overhyped and overrated album. Justice for Janelle.

    Bruno over everybody in 2018. I was okay with Jay, Lorde, Gambino and rooting for Kendrick.

    Honey, in 2005, 4/5 of the AOTY nominees were black (Ray Charles, Alicia Keys, Usher, Kanye West).

    “Kiss From A Rose” is a beautiful record. It deserved its ROTY and SOTY wins.

    • Dirty Computer missing a Best Urban Contemporary Album nomination in order to give EVERYTHING IS LOVE a Grammy
    • Only waiting until 2017 to change the Rap/Sung Collab category to Rap/Sung Performance, after the prime of M.I.A., Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Kanye West’s careers
    • Thinking Out Loud winning SOTY over Alright was an even worse decision than 1989 winning AOTY over To Pimp A Butterfly
    • Humble missing a SOTY
    • thank u, next missing SOTY
    • This is America winning SOTY
    • Not doing a major Academy overhaul to expell 80-year-old voters from Wyoming who can’t tell ROTY and SOTY apart after 62 years
    • NOT HAVING CREATED A POP COMMITTEE AFTER 62 YEARS
    • My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy & Body Talk not receiving AOTY, ROTY and SOTY nominations in 2011-12.

    the best decision:

    • denying Pop girl access to the Dance field. even though Robyn sadly couldn’t take advantage from that category fraud.

    Where do I start?

    Gaga not winning AOTY for either The Fame or The Fame Monster
    Beyoncé not winning AOTY for either self-titled or Lemonade.
    Kendrick not winning for Damn (it was the album that got him both commercial success and critical acclaim, he should’ve won that year)
    Bad Guy winning SOTY.
    This Is America winning SOTY over Shallow

    Best decisions:
    Billie Eilish winning AOTY (this win aged so well with me)
    Adele sweeping in 2012.

    “Kiss From A Rose” is a beautiful record. It deserved its ROTY and SOTY wins.

    It’s also nowhere near “Waterfalls”, “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “You Oughta Know”. Face it, dude, those three songs are much better than what won.

    I don’t need to “face” anything. “Kiss from a Rose” deserves its awards and has held up just as well as those other songs. There are “worse Grammy decisions” than KFAR winning ROTY/SOTY, which again, it deserved. And that’s not to take anything away from those records because they would have been deserving as well.

    Okay, then how about some random Dave Matthews Band track winning Best Rock Duo/group instead of the Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979” or Oasis’ “Wonderwall”?

    1997

    Falling Into You – Celine Dion
    Odelay – Beck
    The Score – Fugees
    Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness – The Smashing Pumpkins
    Waiting to Exhale Soundtrack

    They picked the weakest album
