“drivers license” is likely going home with nothing.
Bruno is such a darling (and Anderson is one in Rap & R&B). Then there’s Billie being Billie. Even if “Therefore I Am” is her submission, I am still pretty sure she will be extremely competitive to win GF. And if her album release single is a hit and submitted? They better start engraving her name on the award now.
It would take BOTH of those Grammy darling being snubbed for Olivia to win.April 2, 2021 at 10:15 pm #1204172917
So far, this will set up for 64th Grammys with the best collabs with producers:
2019 – Billie Eilish and FINNEAS(swept the whole 4 GF categories in 62nd Grammys)
2020 – Taylor Swift and Aaron Dessner(won AOTY in 63rd Grammys)
2021 – Olivia Rodrigo and Dan Nigro(potential future GF sweep becoming the second woman to win all 4 GF categories in single ceremony this 2022.)
I’m really confused…
I understand how the producer/artist had relevance with Finneas and Billie (Finneas won POTY), but what the fuck is the relevance with Aaron and Taylor?
Aaron wasn’t even nominated in POTY. His only win was AOTY… You might as well just name every producer on an AOTY winning album…March 31, 2021 at 8:17 pm #1204168560
But the most important advantage he has is that he’s a black gay man who made a song about being proud of being a gay man, which is a hard narrative to beat.
That’s something cute for the committee to consider, but voters won’t give an absolute shit.March 22, 2021 at 6:52 pm #1204151971
her album received universal acclaim (83 in Metacritic, and thus far
Unfortunately, Pop voters couldn’t care less for acclaim. Time after time, acclaimed albums get snubbed for albums nearing yellow (if not yellow already) on Metacritic.
Furthermore, Pop is a name check heavy category. Newcomers are snubbed often, and for them to even be in contention in the first place, they need a massive hit.March 17, 2021 at 5:08 pm #1204141810
1989 was most deserved AOTY win of the past decade, I don’t care what anyone says.March 17, 2021 at 5:07 pm #1204141808
What is more impressive y’all, Taylor winning three album of the years? Or Taylor pulling off an Album of the Year win without any other wins ala Arcade Fire?
The latter isn’t impressive. It shows how much of a weak AOTY win it was (which can then be seen as a negative considering it was her most acclaimed, successful, and she released a whole special + sister album during voting, but still barely won).
The former is definitely impressive as fuck though. Truly an albums artist.March 17, 2021 at 8:43 am #1204140665
And people in here saying “Grammys are about connections, he doesn’t have them”… do you know who you’re speaking about? The Weeknd isn’t some indie artist 💀 He’s on arguably the biggest record label, and is already a 3x Grammy winner before, including once in a category where he had frankly no business winning (Starboy over CTRL and Awaken My Love).March 17, 2021 at 8:41 am #1204140654
He didn’t get the votes… it’s not that hard?
All the conspiracy theories are complete bullshit, especially the Super Bowl one:
1. Katy & Gaga both did Super Bowl & Grammys same year.
2. Grammys & Super Bowl were BOTH on CBS this year, so it’s not even like a network would be mad Super Bowl gets him first or something…
He just missed… People need to realize that, nothing is “locked”. No matter how hard us on GD or media scream about “locks”, voters are people who vote for what they themselves want…
FYI, his chances on this forum were overrated hard. I’ll never forget people saying After Hours could win AOTY 💀 I personally knew there was a very well chance of him missing Pop Vocal Album, and while I thought BL was a lock for nominations, I heavily disagreed with it being a lock for wins like everyone was shouting here.March 16, 2021 at 8:35 am #1204138097
It’s the people in here who think the intern that runs the GRAMMYS Twitter account has any impact on actual Grammy decisions… relax…March 15, 2021 at 9:22 pm #1204137166
realized this year that I’m great at predicting nominations and awful at predicting wins
This year had the most upsets/surprises of the past decade; GoldDerby’s combined prediction accuracy score was 53%, a 20 point drop from last year.
Plus, wasn’t this your first year predicting as well? So don’t go too hard on yourself!March 15, 2021 at 6:15 pm #1204136926
Do y’all think any living artist can win 3 Grammys for AOTY? (Besides Adele)
If Silk Sonic’s album is nominated next year, then Bruno most likely will (he currently has 2, 1 being for his work on 25).
Bruno being a massive darling on his own + Anderson being a massive R&B and Rap darling = easy AOTY win.March 14, 2021 at 10:03 pm #1204130982
one word: willow.
In what category? Surely not Pop Field where voters gave her a giant middle finger. And definitely not GF where she narrowly won a category stacked for her to win.
Taylor was carried by Alt/Country voters, who don’t vote in Pop, but show up in AOTY.
evermore is very likely being stomped all over in the pop field (whether by Billie or Ariana). At this point, her best chance is to submit a song to Folk/Americana and pray the committee there let’s her in.
