If Taylor wasn’t set up in AOTY, she would have left empty-handed. Pop field voters nominate her but they won’t award her, so a non-factor there, the same in country field. She could try in Americana field, but they clearly have their faves, even if they’re flops. Taylor doesn’t have power to win grammys in individual fields anymore, and I dare to say she might have never had, considering she never pulled a sweep, she could try to win AOTY as many times as she pleases, but apart from that Grammys are pretty much DONE with her.
funny because she definitely won AOTY because the americana, country, rock and alt blocks backed her up. she tanked in pop so they definitely didnt support her that much and pop clearly is not enough to win anymore given how dua won pop vocal over Taylor. so the genres that supported her were country, alt and americana which shows that she could be embraced in those genres. but nice input.March 9, 2021 at 8:35 pm #1204102672
What the fuck? The Grammy voters are not all Americans. They choose the winners. It doesn’t matter if it’s an American organization.
does it matter when most voters are american and I’ve yet to hear a single good argument from you as to why dua lipa is winning an album award besides people like the album!1!!!11March 9, 2021 at 8:27 pm #1204102639
You know there are more countries in the world than the US right? FN sold and streamed really well all around the globe and the voters are not all from the US. Rockferry won with only being Gold in the US. (BPVA)
yknow the Grammys are an American organisation rightMarch 9, 2021 at 8:16 pm #1204102606
God, stop acting like FN flopped. You guys are getting delusional day by day. Only talking about the US sales which aren’t even that bad. Grammy voters are not only American. Nor do they look up the sales of albums. FN Sales: https://twitter.com/wwsalesoncharts/status/1365734139631140864?s=21
I’m not being delusional unlike the people who think dua lipa is winning an album category where she is lacking… she also has little ac appeal which will ultimately hurt her too.March 9, 2021 at 8:00 pm #1204102564
Golden Hour and Morning Phase were commercial flops yet they won. You guys are making FN like it’s some kind of a colossal bomb. DSN is a bigger hit than any song Taylor has had since 1989. If it’s acclaimed and voters have passion for it, it’ll win. Though who am i telling this, this thread is only filled with hardc Swifties.
those albums are not comparable to FN imo. beck benefited from massive vote split, a change of sound of sorts and an overdue narrative. golden hour was an adored country cross over album which was one of the top 2 acclaimed albums in the lineup, and swept everything and had no one to vote split with. and look at that they’re more comparable to folklore which also belongs to the respected singer songwriter lane the other 2 belong in. fn lack of sales hurts it a lot especially when pop albums benefit from sales and not really acclaim…March 9, 2021 at 7:21 pm #1204102499
No one is comparing the albums. It is saying Folklore is her most acclaimed work till date but will lose to another acclaimed pop album. During 1989 era lot of ppl were rooting for TPAB. This year ppl are rooting for Folklore and Fn likely will take it.
and I just listed all the reasons why this doesnt hold up…
dua lipa is beatable in every category she is in especially the album ones where she would have no support cuz the album is a tank despite the massive payola. folklore is more locked in album categories than in the song ones cuz it’s acclaimed as a body of work and if someone is winning over her in pop vocal is harry and in aoty the one to beat her is jacob collier and not dua lipa. but I guess the stans dont want to hear this…March 9, 2021 at 7:06 pm #1204102466
this is what i’m thinking too. it’s like this is dua’s 1989 and folklore is taylor’s to pimp a butterfly
how is future nostalgia comparable to 1989???
future nostalgia is an album that peaked at #4 it’s not even platinum and it has no #1 despite DSN being massively playlisted and payola’d to death on radio and has only another top 10. contrary to 1989 that by voting was 6x platinum had already 3 #1s, other 3 tops 10s, all it’s singles besides 1 were platinum and the rest of the tracks were gold which the only certification future nostalgia has as of yet and also had spent a year in the top 10. don’t compare where you can’t compete.February 3, 2021 at 9:06 pm #1204019667

I can’t see myself taking such a nose dive when I ask the Lord to forgive me every day for any short coming that I am guilty of in his opinion. Tell me, can the same thing be said about you and your ilk? Do y’all ask for his forgiveness? God bless you always!!! Holly P.S. Do keep in mind that what I had to put out here could’ve been ignored just like most everything else that I say at this forum about anything that I address. I can’t help but wonder why y’all are acting so differently all of a suddenly. Thank you so much for this attention that I normally do not get here and all that I had to do was be my honest and straight forward self like I always am. (shaking my head with an amazed smile)
this is not trumps supporting group and homophobic behaviour shouldn’t be tolerated in a forum when half the users are LGBTQ+.February 3, 2021 at 8:25 pm #1204019575
I can’t get behind a life style that the Lord doesn’t approve of and that right there is another question that I have. If the homosexual lifestyle was his every intention and something that he was going to be A OK with, what was his reason for creating the female gender since it wasn’t the first gender to be thought of and why is the union ship of the two genders the only way that reproduction can take place? God bless you always!!! Holly
stop using god as a scape goat for your bigoted ass views. even if I don’t fully believe in it he made everyone equal and loves everyone the same. stop and do better.February 3, 2021 at 6:46 pm #1204019367
^^^ Thank you and if there is anything that you would like to add, I am more than happy to share the spotlight. (smiles) For the record, I don’t swear, which you should already know by now. God bless you and Kai always!!! Holly P.S. You support those who stay within their own gender and yet I am the one who is being labeled a close minded person? Wow, thank you for letting me know how far it is that your brain train has no ability to travel. (shaking my head with a wide eyed look)
well the brain that needs to travel is yours cause a close minded person is literally the epitome of someone who doesn’t understand that people can love their same gender. also did you imply gays are sexist? the sexism in your head needs to be checked.
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
the way you just implied you wanted to use the f word when as a straight cis white woman you shouldn’t even be allowed to think about it. stop meddling into others lifestyle when nobody is getting in the way of you stanning a fad country artist that nobody in the 21 first century. stop and get helpNovember 10, 2020 at 3:09 pm #1203827976
Meryl is winning the globe, especially cause she has no competition + The Prom is a musical that’s up the HFPA’s alley. Meryl is in the best position of all the possible comedy/musical contenders. Carey Mulligan is a pipe dream.November 10, 2020 at 2:57 pm #1203827945
Me coming back to this site and reading all this Carey Mulligan payola when she’s only happening at the globes cause she’s losing to Meryl there. And basic sag won’t go for something like PYG nor will BAFTA so she’s basically done + the oscar’s don’t care for her like that.
