GLENN IS TAKING IT HOME…. FINAFUCKINGLLYJanuary 2, 2019 at 4:07 pm #1202716755
While I am of the point of view that all the three ladies should be in lead, I can see the logic behind the argument that Olivia is leading while the other two are supporting. I Domino’s necessarily see it as a “category fraud”. To me, it’s more of a matter of opinion or perception. There are some movies where it’s pretty clear who’s leading and who’s supporting, but in movies like The Favourite, I totally understand why someone might see Rachel and Emma as supporting. I don’t see why it’s so hard for some of y’all to understand.December 30, 2018 at 8:17 am #1202713995
For me, it’s either Fearless or 21, both of these albums were a step up from both the artists’ previous works and had an impact on the music industry while the other winners are decent they just didn’t have the same impact.December 28, 2018 at 1:02 pm #1202712672
Those Bird Box numbers are HUGE! 45 million viewers in a week is pretty great for a movie that wasn’t at all advertised. It probably won’t change anything though.December 21, 2018 at 11:59 pm #1202708016
I’m still not aboard the Blunt hype train. With MPR losing its momentum every coming day, I don’t see how Emily could secure a place in the lineup especially in a year as competitive as this one. I also do not think that Yalitza Aparicio would be able to get a nomination, I don’t see a lot going for her at the moment.December 20, 2018 at 5:08 pm #1202707189

According to a fan who met Taylor in London, Taylor has written an original song for the Cats movie.December 16, 2018 at 9:37 pm #1202703125
I don’t know why but I have this feeling that Nicole is somehow going to end up in the final lineup.December 9, 2018 at 2:57 pm #1202695771

In My Blood isn’t a threat. The Middle is one of the frontrunners along with Shallow.
In My Blood isn’t a threat but I doubt it’d get zero votes, and the votes it will be getting would be from Shallow’s chunk of votes. I frankly think that Brandi will take SOTY, the song is impeccably written and is leaps and bounds ahead of any other song nominated, other than that I think the “country” community is going to stand behind her, along with most of the rock voters voting for her, which should be enough for her to win.December 9, 2018 at 12:36 pm #1202695451
I think something that works against Shallow is that it has two other pop songs in SOTY competing for the pop vote which will cause tje votes to split. Other than that, I don’t think there’s anything that’s stopping Shallow from winning.December 9, 2018 at 12:34 pm #1202695443
Popularity still does matter to an extent. 13,000+ people are voting. The more familiar your song is, the more likely you are to win. And traditionally, it’s more likely for hits to gain traction in Record and Song. Also, SZA was the most nominated female artist last year and won nothing. Jay-Z was the most nominated artist overall and won nothing. I don’t think Brandi is out of the race completely, and I think she has a good shot at AOTY, but I don’t see her winning in the major song categories.
I don’t think the SZA comparison fits with Brandi. SZA had 4 of her nominations in the genre categories, and only one in the GF and that too with BNA. Brandi on the other hand has gotten across the board nominations in the GF in all the categories she was nominated for. That surely does make a HUGE difference.
I feel the popularity thing hardly does matter if it even does. If there are 8 songs nominated, I do think the voters would give a listen to the one or two songs they haven’t heard. I’m not saying they HAVE to, but I do think they will. Moreover, didn’t that Robert Plant and Alison Krauss song win ROTY in 2009? I know the situation is not comparable, but I think Brandi could potentially win in one of the song categories.December 9, 2018 at 12:17 pm #1202695410
As far as Rap/Sung is concerned, even I think All the Stars has a lead over This is America. But frankly speaking, I can see it going to any of the two.December 9, 2018 at 12:13 pm #1202695401
“The Joke” is definitely a better written song and performance than “Shallow.” I would accept an upset from “The Joke.” It most likely has a better chance at SOTY.
That is what I think. I don’t see how popularity comes into play. It would’ve come into play for the nomination but not for the final round of voting. Also, it helps that she is the most nominated female of the night, she is bound to gain traction and support. I think that coupled with the support she will get from the country voters would be enough to push her to win at least one of the categories.
