I’ve added “Red (Taylor’s Version)” to Album of the Year. I hope she decides not to submit it though. Even though the original didn’t win any Grammys, it would still be like double-dipping to submit a remake of her own work. Submitting newly recorded or extended songs doesn’t bother me, but “Red” getting another chance as an album seems greedy to me for an artist who has won AOTY three times.
Thanks, Daniel. I completely agree by the way.April 14, 2022 at 12:11 pm #1204916926
Both Song Written For Visual Media & Latin Pop Album had ridiculous lineups with 3 nominees under the letter A. Let’s say there were 100 submissions in both categories and it’s extremely likely that those As were the first 3 names on each ballot.
“All Eyes On Me” and “Agatha All Along” were expected nominees; “All I Know So Far” was the only surprise. “The Anonymous Ones” from Dear Evan Hansen also notably missed that category.April 14, 2022 at 12:08 pm #1204916920
I agree, but
– Olivia Rodrigo was the only non A-G artist in pop this year despite Swift, Sheeran and Lil all being widely predicted.
– Arooj Aftab got into BNA despite basically no one here having head of her before
1. This probably says more about how Taylor, Ed, and Nas were weak than it does about the alphabetical advantage. Yes, Brandi’s higher placement on the ballot helped her, but she also performed “Right On Time” on SNL during voting and publicly signaled voters that it was moved into the pop category. Furthermore, Nas was able to make it into ROTY over Ariana Grande, despite being lower on the ballot.
2. Arooj won a Grammy this year, so obviously some people had heard of her.April 14, 2022 at 11:26 am #1204916856
Grammy rules for a “song” (composition): “A song must comprise melody and lyrics to be eligible in a songwriting category and must have been released on a recording for the first time, or achieved prominence for the first time, during the current eligibility year.”
Time will tell if the song’s inclusion on the original Red, which was nominated for multiple Grammys, disqualifies it on the grounds of having “achieved prominence for the first time,” and if so, if the additional lyrics from the 10-minute version requalify it.
Daniel, I would also suggest adding Red (Taylor’s Version) to AOTY since she has not indicated that she doesn’t plan to submit it for consideration. Notably, her rationale for not submitting Fearless (Taylor’s Version) last year was that it had already won multiple Grammys, and Red won none in 2014.April 7, 2022 at 1:07 pm #1204907911
I remember 2019 when many people here thought Maggie Rodgers would get nominated everywhere and then she only got into BNA.
I only remember people predicting her for SOTY for the most part.
There was a last-minute surge where some people started predicting her in AOTY and even ROTY, but that was because Hits Daily Double (the same people who correctly projected a Jay-Z overperformance the year prior) were talking up a similar nominations haul for her.
Justin Bieber will be nominated with Ghost everywhere ugh
I don’t think it will get in Record or Song of the Year. A lot of big hits are coming to come along in the next few months and “Ghost” is going to lose steam.April 7, 2022 at 8:34 am #1204907447
I’d argue that Jazmine Sullivan and Doja Cat were greater upsets than Batiste.
I wouldn’t call Doja an upset, just the Grammys not making (what seemed like) the blatantly obvious Grammy decision. Hits usually rule in that category and “Kiss Me More” was the biggest hit there. Doja also had across-the-board general field nominations.April 7, 2022 at 8:32 am #1204907443
Soul Train doesn’t always align with the Grammys. She could’ve lost to H.E.R. Or Jon
The passion for H.E.R.’s album didn’t really seem to be there. It seemed clear that she got in AOTY over Jazmine because she was more familiar to non-R&B audiences (being higher on the ballot likely also helped).
I assumed that it was either going to be Jazmine as the passion pick, or Jon with the two mainstream divas splitting the vote.February 8, 2022 at 7:12 am #1204787624
3/4 successful Oscar attempts vs. 1/5
Glad the lions were finally with Beyoncé this year, although it seems she will be losing to Billie or Lin regardless 💅🏽February 8, 2022 at 7:01 am #1204787489
yet i am extremely happy that she was snubbed owing to the toxicity and the vitriol that her fans were spewing. I mean dragging Madonna? Well HoG will forever be her Evita now. And all those comments about how the industry “totally” wants to “reward” her….yeah right.
The difference between Gaga and Madonna is still that one of them is an Oscar nominee/winner and the other isn’t.
Madonna’s acting career is still a joke and she only has one hit movie to speak of in numerous attempts. Gaga being snubbed today doesn’t change that lolFebruary 8, 2022 at 6:54 am #1204787374
Chastain from a bad film still got in while Gaga didn’t. They clearly have something personal against Gaga.
Not really. She got in with her last movie and won another category and there was still love for her among the acting branch considering SAG. Gucci underperformed heavily at the Oscars all around; this wasn’t Gaga-specificFebruary 8, 2022 at 6:33 am #1204787050
I’m praying Gaga being snubbed at the Oscars can END the Love For Sale winning AOTY delusion.
Why would an unrelated snub with no correlation affect Gaga’s chances of winning AOTY?
Congratulations to Beyoncé on finally getting an Oscar nomination on her 4th? 5th? attempt. 👏🏽 Better late than never I guess!January 12, 2022 at 2:29 pm #1204722200
