Starships by Nicki Minaj was huge! If it was song of the Year I wouldn’t submit, but since we are talking Record, I believe it should have been nominated.
Bad Romance, Tik Tok, Super Bass, Let it Go, Born This Way are some others.July 3, 2017 at 4:18 pm #1202140841
I kind of blame Billboard itself, as I think their formula is flawed. The top 10 throughout this whole year is evidence of this. Bad Liar and Malibu, by Selena and Miley respectively have been all over the radio where I live. Their sales are good, their YouTube is strong, their online chatter is likewise strong, they’re streaming is okay. Then, of course, you have your garbage, interchangeable, mumble rappers consistently putting out top ten hits due solely to streaming. I understand streaming is the primary source of music consumption now, but for the first time in my life, I do not believe the billboard charts accurately represent the songs the United States are listening to.
As as far as the female pop stars themselves, I just feel like there is a lack of fun like there used to be. As previously stated, Beyonce, Rihanna, Adele, and Taylor are the only guaranteed impactors. Adele because of her universal appeal, but the other three because their brilliant balance of hits and meaning on their albums.
Katy Perry and Lady Gaga aren’t releasing the type of music their fans want to hear- I’m a huge fan of both, and am obviously very sad their work is “flopping”. I didn’t really enjoy Witness, but Swish Swish is one of my favorite songs of the year so far, but it’s lack of a video is causing its downfall in the charts. As for Joanne, it was different but good. Million Reasons was strong but lacked longevity. She never released a follow up single, and didn’t promote John Wayne at all.
Ive already spoken about Miley and Selena. I think they will see more success with their current singles, and have successful albums too. Same with Ariana Grande.
Camilla, Halsey, Bebe, and Alesia just need some more hits before they are on the same level as the others.July 3, 2017 at 12:47 pm #1202140701
I actually can agree with Hunter here. Well, at least for Beguiled and Wonder Woman, and to an extent Get Out. I don’t think Planet of Apss or Logan has a chance, however. Coppola has lots of acclaim for The Beguiled, which yes, has mixed reviews, but her directing is said to be top notch. I could see it getting a WGA nom too, as Adapted really doesn’t have many competitors this year. I’d prefer Logan to Wnder Woman getting a WGA nomination, but Wonder Woman is more likely if they are going to do a comic book movie. As for Get Out, I see it getting all the nominations Hunter said except SAG. And there’s no doubt Dunkirk will have a great showing.July 2, 2017 at 6:50 pm #1202139887
Rap Album easily goes to Kendrick. Jay Z will be nominated. Even though More Life was an atrocity, it will get nominated because popularity. That leaves two openings. I would say Nicki Minaj but I think her album will probably have a winter release, (we may or may not have a lead single right now- No Frauds and Regret in Your Tears might be singles from the album). Tribe Called Quest undeniably put out a quality album. I had my problems with it, but I believe it has already been forgotten. Still wouldn’t be surprised if it got a nomination. Really one opening. Hopefully not Big Sean.July 2, 2017 at 6:35 pm #1202139878
Does Okja have any chance anywhere? I thoroughly enjoyed it! In my opinion Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal both played fantastic characters.June 14, 2017 at 8:32 pm #1202121434
Jane the Virgin for series and actress sense8 for everything including series and supporting actors OITNB for series and supporting actresses because the cast could easily fill supporting actress by itself. 13 Reasons for series and lead actress Agents of SHIELD for Supporting actress (Mallory Jansen) and every sound and tech awardMay 5, 2017 at 3:05 pm #1202085244
So are people still behind Divide? When I listened to it I really disliked it, and it seems I’m not alone. Personally, of albums frequently mentioned on this thread, Damn, Joanne, and Weight of These Wings are the only albums I have liked so far, and it’s May. That’s pretty scary!May 2, 2017 at 7:44 am #1202082455
I feel like streaming has too much power on the charts now. It Ain’t Me by Kygo and Selena Gomez is strong all around, decent sales, all over the radio, decent streaming, yet XO Tour Lif3 is charted higher than it due only to SoundCloud. Maybe it’s just me, but I think streaming should be slightly less powerful on the charts.April 17, 2017 at 12:35 pm #1202068935

Honey, Rihanna’s team should’ve waited and submitted “Love On The Brain” for this Grammy cycle.
This. It’s such a big hit and so well-received critically she probably could’ve gotten into ROTY and SOTY and scored a couple wins in the R&B field.
do we know for sure she submit last year? It doesn’t seem like Rihanna to submit a single for “traditional R&B” and it doesn’t seem like the academy to nominate her for trad. R&B….. I’m really hoping this is untrue and she is eligible this year but I highly doubt it, unless she does a live version.March 8, 2017 at 5:10 pm #1202032405
Imagine the worst rap voice you can think of. Kodak is 100x worse.March 6, 2017 at 7:55 pm #1202030877
Ugh, now Migos, Uzi, and Kodak are all in the top ten… could the year get worse?March 6, 2017 at 12:15 pm #1202030630
I don’t see Bruno or Gaga making it into Album. I really don’t like the new Weeknd album that much, but he could be in contention. Ed Sheeran will be nominated, and I think he is the only lock. I want Miranda Lambert to be nominated, but they will not have Alison Krauss and Miranda in AOTYMarch 6, 2017 at 11:55 am #1202030610
I know it will be super competitive, but I would love the Academy to honor Carrie Fisher in Star Wars The Last Jedi, if her performance is great. She never even got a nomination for her work, so I really would love the Academy to give her a nomination in Supporting Actress.
Margot Robbie is really trying to get nominated with I, Tonya. If this doesn’t work out, I don’t know when she will be nominated. Gotham City Sirens may turn out to be career suicide, as I see that film turning out even worse than Suicide Squad.
What about Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson for Supp. Actress for Annihilation?February 27, 2017 at 8:43 pm #1202025714
Moonlight is one of the best movies this decade. La La Land was the overhyped movie that really didn’t have much relatable things/storylines. 2 people dancing around in Los Angeles, falling in love isn’t something a lot of everyday people care about. People like musicals to make them happy but when talking about BEST PICTURE, Moonlight made you actually feel something whereas La La Land did not.
I would say the exact opposite. La La Land made me feel too much it was insane. I was thinking about that movie for weeks. Moonlight made me feel nothing at all, and I am a gay man, yet still realize the only people this movie “touches” are straight people for some reason.
