Future Nostalgia is decent. I don’t really get the hype over it. She is a contender for a win in the two pop categories and will likely receive 1-2 GF nominations as a filler. There is no way this wins AOTY or even ROTY.
Debut weeks over 250k in the last 2 years:
Post Malone 489k
Harry Styles 478k
Jonas Bros 414k
The Weeknd 400k
Kanye West 264k
Seems in line with other big debuts
Starboy probably would have cracked the GF but it was clear it was meant to be a Bruno Mars coronation. It was also released way too early in the period. After Hours should be fresher in voters minds even if it only has two big hits like Starboy did.
Dua Lipa may get in AOTY if she has multiple massive singles. But to me she’s the 2020s version of Katy Perry (except yes she already won). She will be GF filler for a few years before she fades away and the pop star cycle continues. Harsh but it’s the reality.
That new Gambino album is not it. I don’t see that getting in the GF.

Yeah I don’t get why people think it’s an automatic Oscar or Grammy for Visual Media win. Adele’s was the first to win an Oscar and Grammy. Sam Smith also won an Oscar but not the Grammy.

The committee needs to be more transparent and accountable. Obviously you can’t release their names or else Scooter will attempt to bribe them, but perhaps after nominations are announced the names of the members should be made public. Then next year an entirely new committee is created. Perhaps the committee meeting/discussion is recorded and…[Read more]
Combine Record and Song of the Year since often times voters don’t distinguish. It’s also not really necessary anymore since artists rarely don’t write/having writing credits on their songs.
Ranked voting. The Oscars do it and ideally it would force voters to listen to every nominated song in the category.
Too many old voters who are not in tune…[Read more]
