A Star is Born is hardly a “masterpiece.”
And giving Beyoncé AOTY for a live album would be just as uninspired as giving Kendrick AOTY for a soundtrack album.April 17, 2019 at 9:38 am #1202856649
There’s nothing “traditional R&B” about Beyoncé’s rendition of “Before I Let Go.” It’s basically New Orleans Bounce like “In My Feelings” and “Formation.” It would be placed in R&B Performance, if anything.April 17, 2019 at 8:14 am #1202856539
Beyoncé will certainly submit one of the tracks to R&B Performance, and knowing the Grammys, they will nominate her. See “Halo” (Live) and “Me, Myself & I” (Live). Or they could nominate “Before I Left Go,” which is a studio recording.April 10, 2019 at 3:06 pm #1202847436
I can’t see Anderson .Paak getting into AOTY. To get into AOTY, rap albums need a big commercial impact or massive critical acclaim, usually both. He barely won his Grammy in a tie. He’ll be relegated to the rap field if anything.
He’s not exclusively “rap.” He blurs the lines just as much as Childish Gambino. He is already an early favorite for Rap/Sung, R&B Performance and Urban Contemporary.April 10, 2019 at 1:38 am #1202846537
I think Anderson .Paak is someone to watch out for in AOTY. He won his first Grammy this year, and he has been on the radar for awhile now.April 9, 2019 at 1:49 am #1202845239
“Party Rock Anthem” spent many weeks at #1 and was one of the biggest hits of the 2011 but didn’t get any type of nomination. “Old Town Road” is not something the Grammys go for, so it’s not a lock.April 7, 2019 at 9:54 pm #1202843645
Lorde was snubbed in a five nominee lineup. It would be weird to ignore Billie in an eight nominee lineup in a relatively weak year so far.April 7, 2019 at 10:23 am #1202843096
King won ’cause there was 0 competition, otherwise she probably wouldn’t even have been nominated. De Tavira was filler, Adams’ performance was devisive, and Stone & Weisz vote-splitted. Bening’s winning chances look fine, unless she really doesn’t do anything at all in that film.
“0 competition” is definitely exaggerated, especially since people thought her chances were small when she was snubbed at SAG and BAFTA and jumped quickly on the Rachel Weisz bandwagon.April 6, 2019 at 7:37 pm #1202842612
Adele would do a song like “Juice” by Lizzo so much justice. But she shouldn’t give up her sound completely. A nice balance would make a lot of people pleased.
Anyway, Anderson .Paak just released a song with Smokey Robinson called “Make It Better.” “Tints” will probably be placed in Rap/Sung Performance and “Make It Better” will be placed in R&B Performance.April 6, 2019 at 2:06 pm #1202842472
It won’t even matter. That song will either get rejected by the rap committee or totally snubbed if eligible to compete there. Thank goodness for that rap panel. If “I Like It,” “Lucid Dreams” and “In My Feelings” were snubbed, then that “country”/”rap” nonsense won’t be anywhere near the rap field.April 5, 2019 at 11:56 am #1202841236
There’s nothing “rap” about “Old Town Road,” not even “Rap/Sung Performance.”April 4, 2019 at 11:20 am #1202839980
Does anyone think that Cardi will break Drake’s record of 12 BBMA wins in one night?
Probably not.April 2, 2019 at 6:48 am #1202837230
Only one side of I Am… Sasha Fierce is traditional pop. There’s still another side with “Video Phone,” “Ego” and “Diva.”
