I’m not into the singles from Special but I like the rest of the album as much as Cuz I Love You, the Lauryn Hill sample was a nice touch as well. Hopefully Lizzo gets plenty of nominationsJuly 15, 2022 at 1:02 am #1205015938
In recent past, especially in the Academy awards, we have seem that sometimes members feel inclined to reward a movie or a show with an award even though they won’t vote for it in series or Best Picture. We saw this last year with Micaela Coel and I think Lee Jung Jae will be this year’s beneficiary. I feel like due to its groundbreaking nature, Squid Game will not go home empty handed and what better way to reward the biggest show of this award cycle than to give the emmy to its star, or maybe they could give the emmy to the Park Hae Soo who in whole honesty should be winning in his category- his was the best perfomance in squid game and he low-key gave a much more nuanced perfomance than all the guys in his category, in my opinion that is.
I’m glad Park Hae Soo got nominated, he had the best performance in Squid Game but some of the other award shows snubbed him for some reasonJune 20, 2022 at 7:37 pm #1204991063
Beyonce’s song is a fun club banger but it’s not the type of song that could take down Adele, I like it thoJune 18, 2022 at 5:15 pm #1204989314
I’m not surprised at Drake’s numbers, his album is underwhelmingJune 16, 2022 at 9:29 am #1204986046
Adele is not dependent on pop votes, she has universal appeal, that’s why I don’t see Brandi beating her thanks to vote splitting (Jon wouldn’t beat Adele either) I think Beyonce could make it competitive but she needs big commercial success and an accessible soundJune 15, 2022 at 11:42 am #1204984438
Can I ask why is no one having a big breakthrough this year? Like why is no one giving anyone a chance this year? Are people afraid to come out big or what? I have so many questions, I don’t think I ever seen a year where no artist did not have a big breakthrough.
I mean last year there was only 2 breakthroughs, Olivia and Kid Laroi, I don’t think it’s something easy to do when you are new in the industry. Joji seems to be on his way to doing it tho, his old songs have impressive stats and his new song is hugeJune 12, 2022 at 12:40 pm #1204980911
Joji’s new song Glimpe of Us is at #4 on US Spotify, it’s a beautiful ballad so I’m gonna keep an eye on him for best new artistJune 12, 2022 at 12:33 pm #1204980904
I’m not predicting Hold My Hand in pop solo but I wouldn’t count it out either, Gaga is an easy namecheck and it’s a recent song from a movie on it’s way to gross 1 billion at the box officeJune 8, 2022 at 2:14 pm #1204976357
In These Silent Days, it’s the best album in this lineup IMOMay 22, 2022 at 11:06 am #1204960316
Adele and Bruno are huge Grammy favourites that haven’t lost a Grammy in many years, so the first two look right and probably most of your list looks about right. However, I’d put Folklore a little lower, simply because when the album doesn’t win in it’s own genre, that indicates that the margin of victory in AOTY might have been very close.
You make a good point, I decided to put more weight on cross genre appeal and commercial success because that seems to more important in the general field, like Babel losing in Americana and in the rock categories to another AOTY nominee The Black Keys but then winning in the GF. Folklore lost in the very competitive pop field but I would favor it in the GF against albums that won in their genre like Golden Hour or Morning Phase, my point is that they could have more support from different fields despite losing in their genre, it’s all very subjective thoMay 21, 2022 at 8:04 pm #1204959714
Going to do only AOTY because I’m feeling lazy lol
