The toughest part will be making sure our lists of contenders in each category are expansive enough. We won’t be able to include every suggested performer/track/album – these could number into the high double digits.
I just ask that you be patient with us as we tackle this big project in the coming weeks. We are sure to make missteps and suffer from some growing pains but we are coming at this from a good place.
If we decide not to include a specific category or your favorite genre, that doesn’t mean it will never happen. Indeed, your feedback will ensure that these awards evolve just as the film and TV ones have done over the years.September 19, 2020 at 7:41 am #1203717603
Thanks for all the feedback. You have already given us a lot to consider. Anyone else want to chime in?September 18, 2020 at 3:33 pm #1203716609
We are going to work to add certain genre categories before nominations are announced.
As for the winners event, we currently predict 32 categories across a wide range of genres.
Take a look and let us know what other ones we should consider adding — https://www.goldderby.com/odds/combined-odds/grammy-awards-2019/September 18, 2020 at 12:14 pm #1203715773
I started a new thread for the Gold Derby Music Awards (possible categories)September 18, 2020 at 7:39 am #1203714866
What would be your ideal format for the Gold Derby Music Awards?
Should they mirror the Grammys and then add certain categories – as we do with Film/Oscars and TV/Emmys?September 18, 2020 at 6:35 am #1203714799
The first category we will add to our Grammy predictions is Best New Artist.
Beyond that, we will try to get the inside scoop on submissions. Even if we can’t, wouldn’t it still be worthwhile to add categories, such as the Pop ones?September 18, 2020 at 6:30 am #1203714793
Maxinho – we’d love to feature some of the forum posters in slugfests. You are the real experts.September 17, 2020 at 12:36 pm #1203713366
Boz and company,
We absolutely value those of you who take such an active role in the music forum.
The music awards, particularly the Grammys, are much harder to get a handle on due to the overwhelming number of contenders.
We would love to expand the number of categories that we are predicting for the Grammys. To that end, we could set up topics for people to chime in with their ideas for contenders.September 17, 2020 at 12:36 pm #1203713361
