I would’ve easily traded this win for Directing (Sapochnik) or Actress/Supporting Actress.
Also really random note but TIL that Ramin Djawadi wasn’t even nominated in Outstanding Musical Composition for the Winds of Winter. How?September 22, 2019 at 7:22 pm #1203095778

I agree that Harry Potter deserved way more. A lot of iconic films were BP nominees at least and HP should’ve been one of them.
I don’t know if any of the films deserved BP noms (*maybe* for Deathly Hallows Part 2 to commemorate the series, at most), but I really wish the series had won something. Namely Production Design or Visual Effects. And it’s unfortunate that John Williams never won for such an iconic score (though he of course has other wins).August 25, 2019 at 11:00 am #1203039230
This album has grown on me quite a bit. It gets better with every listen.

- Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince
- Cornelia Street
- Cruel Summer
- It’s Nice to Have a Friend
- False God
My initial thoughts: This is good. Better than reputation, not as good as 1989. I’m honestly so confused as to why anyone thought that releasing ME! as the lead was a remotely good idea, it’s literally the worst song on the album. And “Cruel Summer” and “The Man” are right there (“Lover” would’ve been a good choice too imo). The delusion. This era’s rollout could’ve been drastically more effective and successful.
Given that it’s 18 songs, I don’t think it would’ve hurt at all to cut some songs (or put them on the deluxe or something). There are a few parts that feel a little uninteresting.
I don’t expect that it’ll be super acclaimed, but not panned either. Low 70’s on metacritic perhaps?
As for Grammys, just going off of the first listen, I think it’s safe for a Pop Vocal nom. AotY isn’t happening, she just doesn’t have a super compelling commercial or critical narrative.August 16, 2019 at 5:47 pm #1203027123
According to HDD, ‘Bad Guy’ could dethrone ‘Old Town Road’ this Monday. http://m.hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=317581
I kinda want OTR to get to 20 weeks (it being stopped at 19 weeks would just bother me) but I’m glad that someone else can finally reach the top spot. Bad Guy has been absolutely massive and it’s good to see that its success could be topped off with a #1.
I think her team should have started their social media push earlier in the week. Then it’d probably be all but guaranteed (although they may not have known it would be such a close race).
In any case, OTR is very likely to be dethroned by next Monday at the latest it seems.August 16, 2019 at 10:27 am #1203026560
LOVER Song is def a contender for SOTY and ROTY Let’s see how it does on the charts, It will probably be the biggest hit of the era, so they can’t ignore her.
I don’t know if the song will be have had enough commercial success by the time voting rolls around. It doesn’t sound like an instant smash (it’ll likely debut high, but that isn’t always representative of a song’s entire run), and the eligibility period ends in just two weeks.
I could be wrong; “Lover” will undoubtably get a boost from the album release and everything that surrounds it. Whether or not this will have longevity isn’t known for sure. I’m just speculating.
I really doubt that she’ll get into any GF categories.August 15, 2019 at 9:14 pm #1203025875
I like “Lover” quite a bit. This and “The Archer” have been very welcome changes of pace. It doesn’t sound like a song with much commercial appeal though, I’m not sure why this was chosen as a single (maybe it’s promo).August 12, 2019 at 9:55 am #1203020649

Has any fiction work been nominated recently in Best Audiobook? I wonder because Elisabeth Moss recorded The Handmaid’s Tale and being almost finished with it, she’s really outstanding. If it wasn’t the autobiographies of Michelle Obama (“Becoming”) and Selina Meyer (“A Woman First: First Woman: A Memoir”) I would say she’s the front-runner to win.
Looking at the past decade, nominated works of fiction in Best Spoken Word Album include The Maltese Fiction, Hamlet, Blood on Snow, and The Mark of Zorro.August 9, 2019 at 1:43 pm #1203017786
Normani’s new single, “Motivation,” will be out on the 16th.
Apparently Max Martin, Ariana Grande, and Ilya helped write and produce the song.
