Well, unlike This is America, Shallow had a whole hit of a movie attached to it that had Oscar buzz galore ever since its release on festival runs in the beginning of September of last year. Everybody knew Gaga was winning the Oscar, the rehearsed and overdramatic speeches, the aggressive campaigning and it was a ballad so it definitely had many advantages that should have put it over the edge in a category like SOTY. Even after Gaga’s 3 wins (and M being shook when he wrongly declared of a sweep), she still lost…..to a heavily political song that wasn’t even lyrically good. It should’ve won given the circumstances, but didn’t. So I’m not really buying the excuses. If they wanted her to have a great night, she would’ve won both no matter what.
but you said the Gaga not win the OscarAugust 19, 2019 at 2:07 pm #1203030525
“A Star Is Born” by LadyGaga & Bradley Cooper is now eligible for 3x Platinum in the US.
The album is now the 4th album of 2019 to surpass 1 million units sold, within the US this year.
Billboard Hot 100: #1(+1) bad guy, billie [20 weeks]. *new peak*
news in the game.August 10, 2019 at 12:39 pm #1203018798
Ariana was able to win against a 10x Grammy winner and 2x AOTY winner, a 3x winner, and another 3x winner that’s also beloved by Pop voters, all while having less sales than the first two and no previous wins. Gaga having 9 trophies means absolutely nothing. I’m not going to get into the whole Bad Guy debate because we’ve already established you’re being delusional and over-predicting Billie. Bad Guy won’t win Record or Pop Solo.
Pharrell was able to win, ari won for his buzz.August 10, 2019 at 10:09 am #1203018604
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Although all the arguments against ASIB, it is really very difficult to imagine the voters choosing another album. ASIB is the rock-pop-country ensemble they love so much, has positive reviews, many awards, is the best selling album of the period. ASIB is a Grammy magnet in every way.</p>
I may be being blind, and failing to see enough negative points to prevent Gaga’s victory, but ASIB is certainly a worthy album.
obviously I have other albums that I believe can win as IGOR, Cuz I Love U etc.August 10, 2019 at 9:57 am #1203018594
One could argue then that Ariana only won because of the start of the TUN era. One could argue the start of the TUN era was bigger/on par in the music world than ASIB and should have been able to counteract whatever hype ASIB was giving Gaga. And why didn’t the ASIB propel Shallow to win at least one of the two GF nominations?
shallow was not half as strong as it is today
Also, in my view TIA won so they could clean up the racist image.August 10, 2019 at 9:41 am #1203018577
I only expect Billie Eilish to win Best new artist and ROTY. But, she wont win AOTY especially Ariana Grande because Taylor Swift is coming back to avenge from last year’s shocking AOTY snub with Lover(which it will likely be 1989/speak now vibes album).

Ariana and Lizzo aren’t winning AOTY. Billie could, depending on what the competition looks like. It’s safe to say Billie and Lizzo are both getting in (either would be a massive snub), and we all know Grammy voters are more likely to pick the pop/alternative singer-songwriter over the R&B/pop/hip-hop artist. So if it comes down to the two of them, we all know who would have the edge. Especially since Billie is more popular. Either would be deserving (although I have a softer spot for When We All Fall Asleep…, which is a stunning record), but let’s be realistic.
I believe Lizzo has a better chance than Billie.August 10, 2019 at 9:33 am #1203018564
I’ll give you that, but the other heavily predicted winners are Billie, who is also a new artist, and Ariana, who would win on her first GF nom. Billie, Lizzo, and Capaldi all have very baity albums, for very different reasons each
you must be sick to say that Ari has real chances of winning AOTYAugust 10, 2019 at 9:30 am #1203018562
“A Star Is Born Soundtrack” has now sold over 2.1 million units in the US!
I hope you don’t say that the album has been forgotten.August 9, 2019 at 6:47 pm #1203017941
For the first time in the Grammy period I think Gaga may not be the only person with a real chance of winning AOTY. Cuz I Love can take win AOTY.August 9, 2019 at 3:14 pm #1203017834
and guess who’s gonna win again…..
I don’t think she will win 3 straight. sometime yes she will have 3 and who doubts that is a fool but I don’t think it will be 3 consecutive.
In addition, it will hardly be able to maintain the 20kk level with so little disclosure.August 9, 2019 at 2:52 pm #1203017821
every year the music market gets younger and younger. The only way a song can become a hit is if kids can make TikToks out of them. An example would literally be the top 10 of the hot 100. I thought this year in music was great but annoying and repetitive at the same time. Majority of music this year aged like milk and my favorite projects this year will probably get 0 grammy love, which is usual for someone like me. But I just want Adele, Rih, B7, LG6, and La Rosalia to cleanse this mess.
For Grammys 2021 we can have Adele, Gaga, Beyoncé, Lorde and Kendrick Lamar, already more than half of the nominees in AOTY
