  • Gaga only got one nom? And the weekend snub... I love Beyoncé, but these are too too much noms

    Comment


    • In all seriousness though, the whole BLM should have taught the Grammys better.

      The Weeknd intentionally submitted to Pop to prove that color shouldn't define genres, and he got penalized for it. Not a single nomination for the best album or song of the year is ridiculous. Especially since Blinding Lights is one of the biggest hits of all time.

        You're right but I feel like she's always been semi-relevant among the R&B crowds. Not 100% sure though.

        Anyway, the The Weeknd snubs are completely shocking considering he really, really REALLY WENT ALL OUT with the album campaign throughout the WHOLE YEAR. From the branding, the imagery, the live performances, everything. Still can't believe he really got 0 nominations.

            Two nominations, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Duo.

            Gaga spent more time on her makeup line and the elections than campaigning for Chromatica, which ended up being her downfall.

                Exactly.
                I wanted more noms, obviously.
                But serves her well.
                She has completely ignored her album except for one night. She didn’t care at all to promote it or campaigning, so...

                It could have been worse and receive zero like The Weeknd, though.

                I’m sure she won’t get any of those two. But I hope she can at least perform...

                • how in the hell that drab song by Eilish for 007 got a nom?

                  • Remember how Justin Timberlake didn't get major nominations for 'The 20/20 Experience' either when everyone expected him to! Story's repeating, I guess...

                    • Nominations are a mess as usual. Glad Dua got some noms, though I didn't realise they submitted "Don't Start Now" over "Physical". Fingers crossed Dua snatches all the album wins.

                      • The Weeknd what a shock. He had great song and great album. The song deserved Record of the year.

                        and other shocking thing is Beyonce's nominations.

                        I mean, srsly? Not deserving at all. I was counting on best music video and best music film, but the other noms JUST NO.

                        One of the most overrated artist ever these days.

                        Savage sounds much better just as solo song.

                        Yummy rlly? I expected Lewis Capaldi, The Weeknd to be there.

                        Of course that there needed to be a lot of H.E.R., congrats to her management.

                        No one saw AOTY nominations this way. Coldplay?
                        I just hope that Taylor doesn't win.
                        Congrats to HAIM tho.

                        I expected a lot of love for Summer Walker.

                        And yeah Noah and Kay seems weird in BNA category, but still congrats and nice to see them.

                        Also BTS fans must be over the moon.

                        Congrats to Disclosure and The Flume.

                        I ecpected to see The Killers, Pearl Jam, The 1975 in rock categories.

                        Also so sad seeing FKA twigs and Grimes lost best alt nom.

                        Since when Kiwanuka is rock?

                        Also I expected JoJo in r&b categories. And Lianne.

                        At the end I expected nomination for Loyal, brave and True for best song written for visual media.

                        • Beyonce is really the Grammy's darling.

                          How can The Wkend not even be nominated please

                          • Considering that 2020 was such a weak year in terms of new releases, they had to nominate some records and artists I've never heard of in the major categories, but quantity < quality, so I hope the best artists will win ;) .

                              • 2020 was such a great year for music, we got so many great albums being released. The only people who didn't drop were Adele and Rihanna !
                                Nothing for Halsey again this year, she will be fuming ..

                                    • Hugo I hope that wasn't a Weeknd diss because that album is incredible

                                      But I do agree that Black Parade was a dark horse but deserves all its nominations. The song is great, the context is even better, and the fact that it was created for BLM and released on Juneteenth to support black owned businesses carries a sentimental value which probably carried over to the committee.

                                      She didn't promote at all or campaign for any of her nominations, despite her fan's frustrations, and in all honestly they probably voted for her hoping that she'll appear/perform. Let's not forget that they keep snubbing her when it comes to actually winning awards as well, especially in the General Field.

                                        • Is this piece of sh*t serious? His manager probably paid off half the committee to get his Nokia ringtones nominated, and he complains about it?

                                          It's not even the committee that put him to Pop, it's his label.

                                          So frustrating, especially considering that he was nominated over Abel.

                                            • And it was one of the very few times the white man deserved.

                                              Not sure what she's salty about? The Weeknd snubbed or Megan getting more nominations from the get-go than she did? I think the latter, but either way no one asked her.

                                              • He called the project 'R&B' right from the start and it charted on the US Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart, so I get his point here. On the other hand, those nominations never seem exact. 'The 20/20 Experience' got nominated in the pop category as well, same for Ray Charles' 'Genius Loves Company' or Norah Jones' 'Come Away With Me'.

                                                Regarding Nicki Minaj's comment: What has race got to do with it? Bon Iver's record that year scored a 86/100 on Metacritic, her 'Pink Friday' a 68/100. Clearly, Bon Iver is considered the artist with the bigger artistic potential.

                                                  • With After Hours out of the way, it seems like it's going to be Dua vs Taylor for AOTY, with Folklore being the clear frontrunner. Unless Black Pumas get even more love from the committee. Either way I'm rooting for the following:

                                                    AOTY: Future Nostalgia
                                                    SOTY: Black Parade
                                                    ROTY: Savage (Remix)
                                                    BNA: Megan

                                                    Realistically though, I expect it to be:

                                                    AOTY: Folklore
                                                    SOTY: Cardigan
                                                    ROTY: Colors
                                                    BNA: Megan
