Taylor Swift has the spot any year she wants it at this point. Her, Ariana, and Justin are the only undeniable current pop stars who have not done it yet, and she is by far the best performer and biggest artist of the three. I think she might wait until she becomes more of a legacy artist though. Rihanna and Drake also have the hits, but Rihanna is on indefinite hiatus and Drake doesn’t have the presence or endurance to do it. I bet Ariana will do it next year.January 12, 2021 at 9:48 am #1203979596

I would love to see the GF pop and alternative categories split. Grammys rarely spread the love and this year is such a great opportunity to.
Ideally Taylor and Dua (maybe Gaga and Ari?) would split the pop categories, Phoebe and Fiona would split the alt/rock categories, and Taylor, Dua, and Megan would all get their due in the general field.January 11, 2021 at 5:07 pm #1203978029
I think radio will LOVE this song. Definitely an early contender for the Grammys and could be a year-defining hit.November 24, 2020 at 10:00 am #1203864051
this AOTY lineup is truly awful oh my lord. Taylor & Dua are the only ones deserving of AOTY.October 26, 2020 at 6:26 am #1203802835
Come Away With Me
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Those are the pop albums that won AOTY this millennium. They were all huge blockbusters. We didn’t have this type of success this year so probably the winner will be an album which is not relied on commercial success.
24K Magic was in no way on the level of the other albums. DAMN. sold more albums and Ed sold more singles that year.October 9, 2020 at 6:29 am #1203768404
Rina submitted to Alternative and also submitted STFU! for Rock Song & Performance. I would kill to see her get a nomination outside BNA.October 1, 2020 at 8:55 pm #1203751140
all I can say is wow. reading the first few pages now is HILARIOUS. the amount of Zendaya hatred, misinterpretation of the show and its message, and irrational anger at the show before it even aired made me smile knowing the show walked away with 3 Emmy Awards.
what’s even more interesting is how Zendaya managed to get into her Emmy category without even a nomination from any of the precursor awards. (and before the racist 40 year olds claim it was “political” please keep it to yourself because she gave the best performance of the year)
Looking ahead, I can really see the show being pushed by HBO for more nominations and hopeful wins for its next season. It will be competing in the Limited Series / TV Movie categories next year because they’re currently filming “bridge” episodes between the first 2 seasons. I definitely think Zendaya will repeat a nomination at least, and Hunter Schaefer and Jacob Elordi will be nominated for their phenomenal work. I’d love to see Barbie, Alexa, or Sydney get in but who knows.
When Season 2 finally does arrive, it will definitely receive more universal praise and awards/nominations if it stays at the same quality of the first season.
(Thankfully none of the Euphoria haters from 2018 have jobs so they were unable to vote in the Emmys. Anyways, stream Emmy winning song “All For Us” sung by Emmy winning singer Labrinth and Emmy winning actress Zendaya from the 3x Emmy winning cultural phenomenon TV series Euphoria.)September 8, 2020 at 2:18 pm #1203693433

what are the chances of Rina in BNA & possibly AOTY? Her album has had an insane amount of acclaim and hype within some circles. As unfortunate as the Mercury situation was, it put her name in the headlines for the first time (similar to the Lil Nas Billboard situation). I think she could definitely get into BNA and I would kill to see her in AOTY. Thoughts?July 25, 2020 at 9:01 am #1203601887
I really think Taylor has a good shot at AOTY. The Weeknd doesn’t have anywhere near a big enough album to win based on commercial achievement. Lil Baby’s album spent as long at #1 as he did & the album had only one remotely memorable hit. folklore was completely unexpected and is smashing in every possible way. It might not have a smash hit like The Weeknd but if it does standard Taylor number numbers, it will do better as an album than After Hours. and let’s not forget about its universal acclaim.May 13, 2020 at 3:02 pm #1203480106
Confused as to why Pose is not predicted across the board. The second season was just as well received as the first, and I found it to be much better (mostly due to them getting rid of the unnecessary Evan Peters story arc). This season was purely brilliant and was one of the best second seasons of a show I have seen. MJ Rodriguez is absolutely stunning as Blanca and it would be historic for her to get nominated. I’m also not sure why most are not predicting Billy Porter to get at least a nomination for the same role he won for last year. I know lots of other shows have more “hype” but I really think Pose is worthy of many nominations again.
