There are articles about her being snubbed. Idk if it’s considered as uproar.
King was snubbed for SAG and BAFTA. Seyfried will probably get in on the latter.
It’s not really comparable because King was, in theory, weaker. But thanks to the SAG winner being the non-Oscar nominee and the GG/CC wins, King was still the frontrunner. It was obvious she was getting the Oscar anyway.February 4, 2021 at 11:25 am #1204022404
I don’t see the Globes awarding Close again. I think Seyfried will follow the Regina King path. She’ll win the Globe, the CC’s will follow suit as they always do(ugh), SAG winner will be irrelevant and Seyfried will probably win the BAFTA if nominated.
If we have a split, like GG Seyfried, SAG Close, BAFTA Colman, Seyfried will still win the Oscar. We’ve seen time and time again recently that the Globes are the most influential when it comes to winners, unless they’re REALLY populist in a “wtf” way.January 29, 2021 at 11:23 am #1204008767
Million Reasons is one of the worst ballads I’ve ever heard and its performance on the charts was a complete mess. She should be happy with the nomination thanks to the Superbowl, btw.January 29, 2021 at 11:21 am #1204008762
FadGa already has way too many Grammys as it is, most of them undeserved and thanks to lack of competition.
Her only deserved or okay wins:
Pop Vocal Album for The Fame Monster
Female Pop Vocal for Bad Romance
Music Video for Bad Romance
Pop Duo/Group for Shallow
Would’ve been a worthy winner or nominee for The Edge of Glory and You And I for Pop Solo and would’ve deserved ROTY for TEOG had it been a bigger, WW hit.
Bad Romance should’ve been nominated for ROTY and SOTY, Poker Face should’ve been snubbed altogether because it’s trash. The Fame didn’t deserve its Dance/Electronic Album win for the same reason. Cheek to Cheek isn’t good, Joanne‘s win is a joke and the ASIB/I’ll Never Love Again wins were obvious but still bad. She never deserved AOTY or SOTY.December 15, 2020 at 2:43 pm #1203923135
I see I triggered some people with the word “payola”. Next time I’m just gonna use bribery, which obviously is not past many record labels and artists, unless you’re too naive to believe it.December 14, 2020 at 7:32 pm #1203920880
Well, ROM was already getting acclaimed since its release.
ROM is so generic that the only way all this praise would make sense was if it was a huge hit, like Blinding Lights or The Box was. It’s weird unless you actually think this song is amazing, and let’s be real, it’s not the case. The same applies to Dynamite.December 10, 2020 at 7:16 pm #1203910110
No, because they would have nominated David Bowie and he would’ve won.
He wasn’t nominated solely because they wanted to exploit the “Adele versus Beyoncé” narrative, knowing it would make the headlines + Adele would easily win and that’s what they wanted all along. That’s why they nominated Drake and not Radiohead or another white act to steal votes from Adele. Sturgill Simpson was too under the radar to be competitive, he wasn’t huge even in his own field.December 10, 2020 at 7:09 pm #1203910099
Honestly, I don’t think releasing another album helps.
1) It looks desperate
2) It shifts the focus to a different work
But seeing how it worked for Ariana with Thank U Next/Sweetener, maybe it works for her.December 10, 2020 at 7:02 pm #1203910091
They have talent in some ways while BOTS has untalented ass. They should go out from here.
Well, I don’t know, I don’t like KPop. But I don’t think being manufactured makes anyone less talented. Less deserving of praise, yes, but that applies to everyone, not only korean boybands.December 10, 2020 at 6:57 pm #1203910082
I think they should use previous winners, but not the ones from the year before, but someone memorable.
ROTY: Coldplay, Celine Dion
BNA: Mariah Carey(she wouldn’t accept but lol), Cyndi Lauper, Christina
Aguilera, John Legend, Carrie Underwood…December 10, 2020 at 6:53 pm #1203910071
Everyone is Xenophobic.
You’re probably being sarcastic, but saying BTS is “manufactured” sounds kinda lame, btw.
As if Gaga, Ariana, Taylor weren’t manufactured as well. Specially Gaga with the visual gimmicks and Taylor with the “innocent, pure” girl act.December 10, 2020 at 6:49 pm #1203910067
I really don’t see Justin winning, buf if his overperformance is the sign of more support than expected, he would steal votes from Gaga and BTS, not Taylor.
