…? You must not have been paying attention when Robert Plant and Alison Krauss won AOTY and ROTY, or when the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack won AOTY, or when Mumford & Sons won AOTY and also received nominations for ROTY, SOTY, and BNA.
Oh yeah. Was Babel Americana or Country? And for Robert & Alison, there weren’t any AR performance or song categories back then so “Rich Woman” and “Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)” had to snatch the pop collab wins.
But when I said that, I was referring to like newer/more recent ceremonies especially now that they’ve upped the lineup to eight.June 5, 2020 at 11:47 am #1203517744
At least Single Ladies has a memorable hook and people actually enjoyed the song itself. Can’t say the same for This is America.
Yeah, “This Is America” makes next-to-no sense without the video. The lyrics are very implicit and the beat isn’t anything mindblowing.
“Shallow” would’ve been my vote, but it’s happened. At least “This Is America'”s win apparently made a lot of people happy.
Oh, and on “The Joke,” idk why it took the Grammys so damn long to recognize AR in the GF. Imo, whenever they run out ideas on what to nominate, they should always check AR and block songs like “The Middle” (sorry to fans) from undeserved SOTY nods.June 5, 2020 at 11:40 am #1203517727
Am I the only who cares that The Product G&B were cheated at the 2000 Grammys? How does “Maria Maria” win Pop Duo/Group Performance when it clearly was meant to be filed under the Pop Collaboration with Vocals category (not like it stood a chance over “Smooth” tho)? I think that’s some heavy BS they pulled right there.June 5, 2020 at 11:39 am #1203517708
But what would you say is someone who doesn’t identify as either male or female’s best shot at a performance Oscar?June 5, 2020 at 2:42 am #1203517137
No, Higher and Racks in the Middle are solid deserving songs. Who deserves instead of these, Young Thug’s London or Lil Nas’ Panini? No, only Down Bad from Dreamville deserves more than Racks in the Middle. Middle Child is average and Suge is okay at first but DaBaby making the same song over and over again.
I wanted “Down Bad” to win so bad. That track is epic. And I wanted “Ballin'” or “Drip Too Hard” to win Rap/Sung.June 5, 2020 at 2:38 am #1203517131
do you guys think there will be an artist that will be surprisingly or not so surprisingly snubbed this year although he/she had quite a good era? if so who
That’s a good question. I would say Doja Cat’s Pop Solo or Pop Duo/Group nod is hanging on a thin line. The Weeknd also might not be what we’re making him out to be.June 5, 2020 at 2:14 am #1203517117
random but i still find tyler the creator’s rant about the grammys funny because even though he made some points, it was him and his label’s choice to submit the album to rap.
I was surprised how he didn’t even say R&B or UC and went all the way to Pop. Imo, IGOR is blurry line between rap and R&B, which is what I tell myself that UC is.June 4, 2020 at 6:45 pm #1203516813
Someone define what Urban Contemporary is really because I’ve “Awaken, My Love!” lose to Starboy and Ventriloquism lose to EVERYTHING IS LOVE. Not that the losses were unfair, I just highlighted these because they all sound like different genres at times.
Please, i need a clear definition on what UC really is so I know what I’m filling in when I’m filling out my Word document.June 4, 2020 at 2:14 pm #1203516437
Fearless deserved it’s triumph for Album of the Year. Cohesive, blockbuster record, had two massive hits. And beautifully written. Fight me bitches! Hey was not even close. I’m guessing the placements were like this: 1. Fearless 2. The Fame 3. Big Whiskey 4. I Am… Sasha Fierce 5. The E.N.D. Come to think of it this was a solid album of the year lineup.
I really love Fearless and that was a deserving AOTY win.
Another year I remember being so competitive was the year prior when Raising Sand took home the cake.
