I mean I’m coming to terms with it especially thanks to this, but I stand by the fact SOTY should’ve gone to Lover. What do the lyrics of Bad Guy fucking mean. ‘White shirt, not red my bloody nose. Sleeping around like no one knows. Think ur so criminal’ Huh
At least “bad guy” was innovative to some extent. “This Is America” was an empty Hip-Hop song that meant almost nothing without the video. On this note, my current SOTY predictions are:
Should win (just like last year): “cardigan”
Will most likely win (from GD): “Blinding Lights”
Will most likely win (from my predictions): “cardigan”September 28, 2020 at 12:44 am #1203738702
I’m yet to see another Ace of Cups type of submission. Ace of Cups legit spread their submissions like wildfire. They had a pop submission, rock submission, music video, traditional R&B, American roots and arrangement submission all from one album that was ultimately submitted to Americana Album and AOTY.September 28, 2020 at 12:40 am #1203738696
Scratch this, I can’t find any evidence of it anywhere so I think we don’t know where they submitted yet.
Whoops. Didn’t see this part. But yes, they should be in Americana. The only form of category fraud they can get away with is putting one of their songs in Country Duo/Group Performance and/or Country Song.September 27, 2020 at 11:46 pm #1203738665
I’m torn between Gaslighter and The Highwomen for an AOTY slot. I’m currently leaning more towards The Highwomen, but I’m far from sure. What do you guys think?
They both can get in. One is Country, the other is Americana. We really should learn to differentiate the two. If I were to pick one, it’d be The Highwomen.September 27, 2020 at 1:59 pm #1203738114
It is what it is. Nothing will change until the voting system changes first. By now we’re stuck at giving awards to the most popular instead of giving to the best ones
FYC’s should stop at submitting, in my opinion. I don’t imagine it being a particularly hard task listening to every work submitted when it’s, um, your job.
I’m gonna applaud them though for recognizing some not-so-popular options from time to time. Just this year, we saw both Lana and Bon Iver in the GF. I also understand that they’re caught in the web of also having to please viewers with (literally) a neverending list of “demands.”September 27, 2020 at 1:52 pm #1203738108
Drake is, in my opinion, very overrated. In that light, “Laugh Now, Cry Later” will get a Rap Performance nomination (or wherever it’s submitted) and possibly ROTY too.September 27, 2020 at 1:26 pm #1203738081
I’ve always found the idea of campaigning hypocritical AF. Why do I need to “campaign” for something I supposedly “deserve” because of my “artistic/creative merit”? Reasons I become less and less interested with these “awards.”
In this light, what artists that aren’t currently campaigning and might have a shot at the Grammys that you think we’re not talking about much? In my opinion: Christine and the Queens, Perfume Genius and twenty one pilots fall into this category.September 27, 2020 at 6:49 am #1203737606
“Level of Concern” might end in Pop Duo/Group.September 27, 2020 at 3:33 am #1203737479
It’s a shame that lana del rey hasn’t won a grammy yet after delivering 4 masterpieces in a row.
Well, her only real shot was with Norman Fucking Rockwell! There’s no way in hell she was going to snag Pop Vocal Album or AOTY with any of her other projects. She’s done very well for someone of her not-so-mainstream status in an oversaturated genre like pop. She should try what Sara Bareilles did and take a Grammy in a less popular field.
