Little Big Town. Dan+Shay have won Country Duo 2 straight times, 2019-2020 a third consecutive is just….
But anything goes in the Grammys.
Little Big Town’s song is irrelevant. That is one of the biggest locks of the year; Dan + Shay and Bieber will win.
To answer the question, Dua Lipa and Brittany Howard are probably the most vulnerable out of the artists with 5+ nominations, although I’m currently predicting Brittany to win 2 awards and Dua is very possible in her song categories.
Post Malone, DaBaby, Ingrid Andress, Doja Cat, and Harry Styles also seem vulnerable.January 8, 2021 at 4:26 pm #1203970652
I am truly expecting Megan & Phoebe to mimic Nicki & Bon Iver in 2012, except Megan is going to win at least Rap Performance and not go home empty-handed.
Bon Iver had ROTY and SOTY nominations and was the frontrunner to win Alternative Album (and ultimately won). They also had considerably more hype and commercial success than Phoebe. This comparison is off.January 8, 2021 at 4:24 pm #1203970645
I’m not buying a Phoebe Bridgers upset at all. Megan or Doja will win.January 8, 2021 at 3:10 pm #1203970493
Taylor. Bigger album, baitier, and she’s a long-running Grammy favorite.
Dua has a better shot of winning the song categories since she has an actual hit single, but Folklore will demolish Future Nostalgia in the album races.December 22, 2020 at 1:31 pm #1203939920
What’s up with Jacob Collier? He has no reviews for his album and his album didn’t chart anywhere, nobody ever predicted him for anything ever and he also missed SOTY/ROTY and Progressive R&B album. He is a clear comittee pick.
Jacob Collier is highly respected and a musician’s musician. He checks off a lot of Grammy boxes, already has a perfect 4/4 Grammy track record, and should not be underestimated.
SOTY, ROTY, and R&B Album all have their nominations chosen by committee so his absence there doesn’t necessarily mean anything.December 22, 2020 at 11:42 am #1203939680
Phoebe has the second most acclaimed album of the year. She will probably have an uphill battle in the rock/alternative fields, but those same voters could go hard for her in BNA.
I mean, I’m not sure how much that matters when Kacey Musgraves and Kendrick Lamar had more acclaimed albums than their competitors, and they were much bigger stars than Phoebe.December 22, 2020 at 11:32 am #1203939659
Taylor could very well go 0/6.
AOTY – Dua
SOTY – Dua or Beyonce
BPVA – Dua
BPVP – Dua
BPDP – Rain On Me (Taylor could win this one but ROM made it into a lot of year end lists, was a moderate hit and seems loved in the industry)
Best Motion Picture Song – Billie
Dua Lipa is not winning Album of the Year or Best Pop Vocal Album. Taylor Swift or Jacob Collier are taking AOTY; likewise Taylor is taking Pop Album and I think Harry is the runner-up there, not Dua.December 3, 2020 at 3:30 pm #1203892977
5/6 of the most recent BNA have been pop acts and Doja doesn’t have any competition with pop acts in this category.
Noah Cyrus is nominated as well. She’s going to take as many votes from Doja as Chika and D Smoke are going to take from Megan (which is to say, not many).December 3, 2020 at 3:20 pm #1203892944
Taylor, if not her then Harry. Dua Lipa is disadvantaged by her album not being as successful as the other 2 and competing alongside a similar album by Lady Gaga, who is a Grammy favorite.December 3, 2020 at 2:48 pm #1203892883
Megan and Doja split the vote and Ingrid Andress easily wins. She’s already got Country song and Album in the bag.
How do you automatically jump from Megan and Doja to Ingrid? Phoebe Bridgers and Kaytranada also have multiple nominations in their fields, plus the track record for country artists winning BNA is not great.
Not to mention, those country awards are going to Maren Morris and Miranda Lambert.December 3, 2020 at 2:35 pm #1203892849
Not that she was winning, but holy shit Noah Cyrus is incredibly dumb. Out here being racist right before voting even starts.
