I’m sorry but Beck’s “Colors” was a good pick. What’s deplorable is how he won Alternative Album (for a fucking pop album) over every other nominee.
I’m not saying it was a bad pick… it got nominated just becasue it was “good” (not great or amazing) and it was Beck’s song, listed high on the alphabetical list 😉
he got nominated over some of those songs that year:
Alessia Cara – I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues
Dua Lipa – New Rules [Live]
James Bay – Us
Janelle Monae – Make Me Feel
Kacey Musgraves – High Horse
Kelly Clarkson – I Don’t Think About You
Sam Smith – Pray
Selena Gomez – Back To You
Shawn Mendes – In My Blood
Taylor Swift – DelicateMay 1, 2021 at 2:41 am #1204237862
to make room for other acts that didn’t make the top 20 or were very low on the list
“to make room for other acts that didn’t make the top 20 or were very low on the list”??
the committees used to pick nominees among the artists/records that actually made the top 20, not lower…May 1, 2021 at 2:23 am #1204237840
I think they should let the committees stay, but think of a different impact on the final nominations list. maybe something like jury system at Eurovision (50/50? one nominee being jury’s pick?)…May 1, 2021 at 2:18 am #1204237838
I wonder if they actually compared this year’s official nominations vs. results from 1st round of voting (before committees started their job) to see if discrepancy is small enough to state that the committees have outlived their usefulness… and no Bennett’s MTV Unplugged or The 3 Tenors in Concert 1994 would happen again in AOY…
I am quite worried about my favorite genre categories that benefitted the most from committees, like dance, rock, r&b, country etc.
there will be no “Kaleo’ No Good, Virtual Self’s Ghost Voices, Highly Suspect’s Lydia, Hiatus Kayiote’s Nakamarra or Breathing Underwater” type of nominations?
more like “Beck’s Colors, Bieber’s Yummy, Balvin’s Un Dia, Ariana Grande’s Boyfriend or Bennet’s ‘S Wonderful” type of nominations??!!
I hope genre categories will look more like Alternative Music Album category each year, which also is committees-free 😉
p.s. when they will add Altenative Music Performance/Song category??
how about maing entry lists public??April 26, 2021 at 6:13 am #1204228480

is Sunset Boulevard still in works as a movie? Close would have great chance winning at last…
YYY speech was ok. don’t get the excitement. as English is not my first language, it was a double trouble for me to understand her :/April 25, 2021 at 6:47 pm #1204224397
“form a friendship with octopus”? the guy in the movie didn’t even try to defend this so-called friend from sharks…April 25, 2021 at 6:45 pm #1204224382
Collective, Crip Camp & The Mole Agent were much better and more important documentaries…April 25, 2021 at 6:36 pm #1204224248
