2 more hours and only five awards to be handed out in that time (yawn).September 15, 2020 at 9:53 pm #1203709315
Meanwhile Gaga was only predicted to snatch nomination for AOTY, no expectation for SOTY. I think ASIB snub in AOTY has led to ARUTW nomination in SOTY as consolation to Gaga but the real truth is what does it means by ‘consolation’? Think about it.
Still going to have to disagree. Gaga and co. won for Best Song Written for Visual Media, which was a different track from the album. I think they clearly could have had quite a bit of support to earn the nomination (without the panel inserting it over other songs) in SOTY for a different song, considering 3/4 of the songwriters were the same for both tracks. All of them would have had the support of the country voters.September 15, 2020 at 9:05 pm #1203709244
I think it was Gaga. If that ‘person’ have strong connection with Taylor then, Delicate couldn’t be snubbed at first place even in pop field meanwhile Joanne’s nom came out of nowhere.
I think you’re way off base here. No way that it was for Gaga/Joanne. Joanne the album was from the 2017 eligibility period and Joanne the song from 2018, and this issue was brought up for the 2019 eligibility period.September 15, 2020 at 8:58 pm #1203709232
Harry Styles – Falling
Lewis Capaldi – Before You Go
Miley Cyrus – Midnight Sky
Selena Gomez – Lose You to Love Me
Taylor Swift – cardigan
Falling as Harry Styles’ pop submission… a bit of a pipe dream. It was never even released in the US as a radio single, and even if it was, there would still be Adore You/Watermelon Sugar to submit.September 15, 2020 at 3:11 pm #1203708756
Shawn Mendes was not nominated for SOTY in 2019. What are you on about
Shawn Mendes was nominated at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, held on February 10, 2019. The categories he was nominated for that year were: Song of the Year and Pop Vocal Album.
Edit for clarification:
The confusion for some is likely because the year the awards are held are often stated for example as the “2020 album of the year…etc” winner, when in fact they are the 2019 album of the year winner, because it was for the work released in the 2019 eligibility period.September 11, 2020 at 2:58 pm #1203699410
Ah, interesting. I was thinking if those random credits were just a way of giving that person some financial security in the future.
Their legal name would still be listed for payment/tax reasons. I know Stevie Nicks, who wrote Silver Springs, that didn’t make the Rumours album was disappointed that it didn’t make it for various reasons, but one was she gave her mother publishing rights to the song, however Nicks was still listed as the songwriter. Here’s the excerpts from the articles if you care to get some info on how some of this stuff works.
“She decided to give the publishing rights to her mother [Barbara] as kind of a big thanks with a nice royalty check for her mom,” Caillat adds.
“Stevie was devastated for a number of reasons,” he explains. “She loved the song, and by it not being on the LP, her mom didn’t make all the extra publishing because the single didn’t sell very much.”
“I told [Fleetwood’s manager] that I want ‘Silver Springs’ because it belongs to my mother,” she told the BBC in 1991. “It didn’t occur to me that they wouldn’t let me have it back. I said to his manager, ‘You find Mick, and you tell him that if I don’t have those tapes by Monday, I am no longer a member of Fleetwood Mac.’”
Fleetwood won, and the song appeared on 25 Years – The Chain. True to her word, Nicks left the band.
Since Nicks was able to turn “Silver Springs” into the hit she always wanted it to be, her mom Barbara did receive the royalty check her daughter had earmarked for her – 20 years later than expected. “My mom ended up getting a $50,000 check two months after The Dance went out,” the singer revealed. “To my mother, it had been a million dollar check.”
Nicks also finally had the opportunity to place the song on her own compilation, including it on 2007’s Crystal Visions – The Very Best of Stevie Nicks. In the liner notes, she dedicated “Silver Springs” to her mom, who passed away four years later. It was the elder Nicks’ “rainy day song.”
