Weren’t the committees created after “The 3 Tenors in Concert 1994” was nominated for AOTY and Tony Bennett’s “MTV Unplugged” won? Who knows if most popular acts get nominated like you are assuming.
Tony Bennett and The Three Tenors’ nominations were obviously not because of popularity. Those nominations were derided because it showed how horribly out of touch the Grammys were with music at the time. It was the golden age for hip-hop, R&B, and alternative rock and you have that shit nominated for/winning AOTY.
The voters aren’t a whole bunch of old white geezers anymore, so when you look at things like the pop field nominations being straight out of the Billboard top 40 every single year, of course there’s reason to suspect a committee-less general field will as well.April 30, 2021 at 5:05 pm #1204237199
How does this = a Billie Eilish AOTY win?
She’s not going to be blocked which is usually what happened with recent AOTY winners. And Grammy voters obviously love her seeing as she swept the GF and then won ROTY again a year later.
It’s called a joke (lighten up), it’s only May of course, but do you really think it’s unreasonable to assume that this news makes Billie the automatic frontrunner to win?April 30, 2021 at 4:39 pm #1204237159
A reminder that the NRC was invented after Tony Bennett infamously won AOTY for his MTV Unplugged album and Macarena was up for contention the next year, so the comittee possibly prevented that.
“Macarena” wasn’t nominated for Pop Duo/Group Performance, so unless it was submitted somewhere else and there was a committee in that genre, or it wasn’t submitted to genre, I doubt itApril 30, 2021 at 4:35 pm #1204237154
Congratulations to Billie on her AOTY win. LMAO.February 3, 2021 at 7:52 pm #1204019520
If you are referring to me, yes I am a white female, but I am no where near the areas you mention here. I am actually not far from where Morgan Wallen hails from here in east Tennessee. (laughing)
God bless you and him always!!!
P.S. Yes, I know what will be coming next. Go ahead. Let me have it. (big smile)
Yes, God bless racistsFebruary 3, 2021 at 6:40 pm #1204019338
Well, there are worse things that it can be called, isn’t there? I was only trying to be respectful unlike too many people these days. God bless you always!!! Holly
Just call him a rhymes-with-maggot and move on, Holly, there’s no need to beat around the bush.January 14, 2021 at 4:27 pm #1203984040
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.
