Am I crazy for keeping Thomas Newman/1917 for Original Score?January 27, 2020 at 12:25 pm #1203314861
Billie doesn’t read as a “safe” choice/artist but the reception she receives from the industry and GP lowkey proves otherwise. I would have never expected a teenaged girl with long acrylics, green hair, and baggy clothes to be accepted like this.
Idk how to explain the acceptance of her looks and musical themes, but I think she kinda DOES fall into the “America’s sweetheart” role, just like Fearless-era Taylor.
All I can guess is that underneath the fashion choices, people still see her as a white teen girl… who is conventionally pretty, a singer-songwriter, making vulnerable music that’s relatable to her age group, and who is willing to campaign for what she wants (even if she acts surprised upon winning). It really does remind me of Taylor, and I think there’s a bit of truth to the “she reminds me of my grandkids” theory. But wow, what a drastic difference in visual presentation lol (I guess this is reflected irl too, and exemplifies a generational shift)January 27, 2020 at 8:29 am #1203314386
bad guy makes sense as a ROTY winner. The production was amazing, it sounded fresh/different from the start, it was continually used in movie trailers throughout the year. It’s actually a good ROTY winner imo.
SOTY is where it falls flat for me. But it’s clear that people are just voting for their favorite song/artist without consideration for the differences between SOTY and ROTY.January 27, 2020 at 8:16 am #1203314350
I suppose you lost big time betting on white when This is America won last year and Bruno Mars won the year before in the general field.
Were they both white too?
Go cry racism some place else where it is truly deserved. Like the White House and how blacks are screwed by this administration. And youR voice can actually make a difference. But I don’t think you really care too much about racism at all. All you care about is Ariana and Lizzo losing the Grammys top awards, as if anything other than blacks winning the top awards is racism. Are you related to Kanye, also known as Trump lover?
whew chile, the meltdown over nothing 💀January 26, 2020 at 11:06 pm #1203313748
We black people got clowned again btw 🤡🤡
I always bet on white when it comes to the Grammys.
I also think it’s funny that after months of people saying Lizzo “panders” to white people, we got a nice reminder that she’s black and everybody knows it. All of that love from white people wasn’t enough for a general field win. I predicted a SOTY win a la Single Ladies but I guess you need a ubiquitous song + Beyonce-level respect/time in the industry to pull that off.January 26, 2020 at 8:40 pm #1203312959
my ROTY prediction came through yupJanuary 26, 2020 at 8:36 pm #1203312845
