They should indeed bring back the Male and Female distinction or else females will never win Grammys (in this streaming age) anymore. :lol: :lol:

Imagine how many more Lil Uzi Vert kind of trap artists will get nods this year an dmay even win considering that kind of music is hot in the market right now. :o :o :oops:

I actually love the Black Panther album but unfortunately not many people here share my view, I think. Hopefully it will get some recognition somewhere.

Childish Gambino will surely be the frontrunner once he drops his album since he has finally achieved mainstream hit status. Dave Matthews Band might also put rock back in the map since they did pretty well this year and have been a Grammy favorite as well.

Childish will clean up ROTY SOTY with This is America and the two Rap Nods.

AOTY will be a blood bath but I can see it having 4 Rap Albums and 1 Pop (i.e Taylor)

"This Is America" is becoming a quick little hit with very short longevity (and lots of memes) so I'm not sure how it's gonna held up by the time the voting session is opened.

For me, This is America had a video that had everyone talking, but I simply cannot listen to the song. I'd rather see J Cole take it.

So far ... I can't think of many nominations, only:

Childish Gambino (roty, soty, rap noms, best video)
The Carters (aoty, roty, rap noms, best video)
Christina Aguilera (pop album, best pop duo)
Post Malone (they'll give him some rap noms)
Ed Sheeran (soty, pop performance, best pop duo)
Pink (pop album)
Kelly Clarkson (pop album and performance)
Catdi B (aoty, rap noms)
Nicki Minaj (rap noms)
Drake (roty, soty, rap noms)
Ariana Grande (soty, pop album, pop performance)
Janelle Monae (HOPEFULLY AOTY, ROTY, r&b noms, best video)

Hopefully they'll snub Taylor. It's her time for all snubs.

This is a weird year for the Grammys. Overall the possible contenders are very weak.

Going through their usual criteria of awarding the most commercial succesful project of the elegibility period, Taylor is the frontrunner with reputation. The problem is that this would be her 3rd win, putting her in the same level of Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder. I don’t see that happening, especially with that album, which didn’t have the impact of her previous one and its seen as a step back artistic wise by many music critics.

Drake is another candidate. The pro: his album has everything to be the biggest of the year; the Grammys have recently created a committe to promote diversity in their ceremony; hip Hop is the biggest music genre in america right now. The against: Drake has a grunge against the Grammys; he was vocal about the his disappintment towards the 2017 ceremony and didn’t submited his work last year; although there is the new committe and hip hip is the dominant genre, its still the Grammys... and we know their history with it.

I see people mentioning Janelle and Kacey, and sure, their albums had critical acclaim, but I don’t think thats enough. For a nommination, maybe; for winning, no. They are too niche for this.

Cardi B? I don’t see her winning AOTY. She is not exactly the type that pleases NARAS. Rap album is highly likely though.

It wouldnt surprise me if we had a River: the Joni Letters situation happening this year, or a Beck/Steely Dan.

With the Grammy head guy “resigning”, them saying they have a bigger Female voice and the whole me too thing I’d imagine it’ll be a Female orientated night.

Yes I think it was a huge phenomenon the first two weeks but was way to shortlived to sweep next year. I can see it getting Best Video though as that is the main reason it went viral and is definately one of the best this year
Maybe they'll give AOTY to Bey and J so they can just kill two birds with one stone. Or snub them again of course. For now I can see the latter happening and that they only get Urban nominations

Childish would be the frontrunner if he sustains the hype, but "This Is America" seems to be a less popular and frontloaded version of "Happy". :oops: :oops:

Grammys Expand Nominee Pool for Major Categories

The Recording Academy has announced plans to expand the number of Grammy nominees in four major categories—Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist—as Billboard reports. Beginning with the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019, there will be eight nominees in each category, increased from five. In a statement, Recording Academy president/CEO Neil Portnow (who recently announced plans to step down from his position) commented, “This creates more opportunities for a wider-range of recognition in these important categories and gives more flexibility to our voters when having to make the often challenging decisions about representing excellence and the best in music for the year.”

Recently, the Recording Academy initiated a task force, featuring Common, Sheryl Crow, and others, to address biases against women in the music industry. It is led by Tina Tchen, who previously served as Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff and leads the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. The task force arrived after only one female artist (Alessia Cara) won an award during the televised 2018 Grammys ceremony.

I agree. I think it deserves Best Video. For me, it's just one of those songs that work only with the video. I remember listening to the song on the radio (without the video of course) and it feels bland as hell.

Anyway, 8 nominees though? Isn't it too much? :-?
