1986 R&B SONG
Jeffrey E. Cohen & Narada Michael Walden – “Freeway of Love” (Aretha Franklin) – WINNER
David Foster, Tom Keane, & Cynthia Weil for “Through the Fire” (Chaka Khan)
LaLa for “You Give Good Love” (Whitney Houston)
Sharon Robinson, Jon Gilutin, & Bunny Hull for “New Attitude” (Patti LaBelle)
Walter Orange, Dennis Lambert, & Franne Golde for “Nightshift” (The Commodores)
This is a strong set of nominees and I agree that Freeway of Love deserved this award.
I was literally looking at the Grammy wikipedia and remarking how much I loved the R&B nominees from this year.
Female R&B Vocal for this year was Aretha for Freeway of Love (who won), Chaka for Through the Fire, Patti for New Attitude, Whitney for You Give Good Love, and Teena Marie for Lovergirl. Awesome year!

Film “critics” and Awards bloggers are total cowards. I saw 4 genuinely TERRIBLE movies this past week. Mank, Ma Rainey, Let Them All Talk and Ammonite. Most of them get good to even great reviews. Stars are frontrunners for nominations and even winning Oscars. I would never think of watching any of those movies again.
Meanwhile they pile on an easy target movie like Hillbilly Elegy which I found by the books but watchable with very good female roles.
Just a terrible year. I cannot BELIEVE Viola and Seyfried “lead” their categories. I am starting to think awards season is all a sham and our pundits are bought and paid for. GROW SOME BALLS.

Can only pray todays win gives Mulligan the bounce she needs to challenge what could not be anymore of a boring Best Actress race with 2 frontrunners who simply don’t deserve to win another Oscar based on what I watched.December 18, 2020 at 4:48 pm #1203931147
Jennifer Lopez shouldn’t be listed in the 90’s group, since her debut album was released in 1999. Furthermore, I think her musical talent is extremely limited, so she shouldn’t be listed in general.
Yeah I was struggling to come up with names for the 90s. But I just remembered Oleta Adams was nominated 4 times that decade so I will replace JLO with her. I don’t like JLo’s music at all but she’s certainly popular and has had a music career for 20 plus years now.December 15, 2020 at 10:35 am #1203922467
I’m interested!! If it’s not too late. Our dream job Tom!!November 30, 2020 at 3:43 pm #1203885571
Everyone arguing about Anderson vs Corrin and I’m like Helena Bonham Carter in The Hereditary Principle >>>>>>>> both of the newbies.November 24, 2020 at 2:39 pm #1203867382
Will we find out the Grammy winner before the Tonys lol?November 24, 2020 at 2:30 pm #1203867305
Please don’t get my hopes up that the fabulous Ledisi will finally win. She’s usually up against Grammy big name favorites like Beyonce, Rhinna, or Lalah Hathaway. I don’t really know any of the names she’s up against besides CHloe X Halle.
Can she REALLY win?October 15, 2020 at 7:08 pm #1203781496
I guess we assume that the requisite number of voters will actually vote in the Lead Actor in a Musical category. But I would be tempted to leave it blank if I were a voter. Christian is a featherweight role. Aaron and his voice are both very pretty, but that performance is not going to go down in the pantheon of great musical theater turns. But he has a lot of goodwill from his previous work and he recovered from COVID, so I’m guessing people will just decide to give it to him in this crazy year.
I’m sorry but for any awards body to have rules that could nominated one sole nominee in a category and than still have rules that could totally humiliate that person is flat wrong. Either don’t have a category or give him the win in a fair vote. Nominating 1 person and than saying he needs to get 60% or else he loses is cruel.October 14, 2020 at 4:11 pm #1203779168
Does anyone know if Boomer Beachum and Marcus Dixon have seen Hillbilly? They are LA based editors for the site so I figure they must have been to a screening? Boomer has Amy in #1 and Marcus has her in #2 in their predictions.October 10, 2020 at 4:46 pm #1203770418
Tough because where some had great ones (Lange-Frances, Hunter-The Piano) their other performance weren’t that great to me.
I always loved Sigourney’s 1-2 punch because you can’t get any more different than Diane Fossey and Katherine Parker. Sad she went home empty handed.September 22, 2020 at 7:57 pm #1203728953
Might have already seen the winning tape for drama supporting actress in my personal awards. (Still need to post my 2020 awards.)
For those wondering Riley has The Crown Season 4 screener so it’s probably Anderson. Or Corrin. Poor HBC.September 21, 2020 at 9:12 pm #1203726878
So when is this thing? When are nominations?
I need something to hold me over before the delayed Oscar season.September 20, 2020 at 6:55 pm #1203722857
What a total waste of a win.
I loved Mrs America and Uzo wasn’t even in the top 3 of her own show. What a joke. Did Kamala Harris just drag her to a win? Please! JOKE!
