  2. Some good but mostly bad

    Wish Danny Brown was nominated for best hip hop but at least those noms are better than last years

    Too much twenty one pilots not enough Bowie

    Nice to see Baroness get that metal nom
    Ken and SteveLikesMusic like this.
  3. Oh and Views for album of the year is hilarious
  4. Also wish Angel Olsen got a nom in the alt category

    Happy for Sturgill and Maren. Folk, Americana, and Country nominees are also pretty on point.

    Real happy for Twenty One Pilots but how was 'Stressed Out' even eligible? Song was released in 2015.
  8. Seriously no Brazy or Danny Brown in that category is bad

    i think the first post is limited in how many tweets i can embed so heres another for ease of viewing

  10. No Frank Ocean either? I wonder why that wasn't nominated

    I do hope Beyonce will also end up winning the most awards

    Pretty sure that wasn't eligible.
  13. iCarly Rae Jepsen

    run away with me Platinum

    This may be the most inconsistent category ever, Work and Cheap Thrills are so good and 7 Years and Stressed Out are so bad

    approx. 3rd coolest Steve on here Supporter

    Frank wanted no part of it.

    Stoked for Blink, Weezer, Tycho. 1975's packaging design getting a nod too.

  17. Why? Because of its label or how it was released? The summer release date was before the eligibility cut off date

    I feel over the past few years the Grammys have become much more mainstream and more of a Billboard award show or worse, MTV award show.
  22. Oh it's not but lemme dream haha

  23. I wonder why the Grammys had no respect for Bowie over the course of his lifetime

    Very confused about Stressed Out, a song that was eligible for 2016's deadline wtf. And why is that awful 7 years song nominated? Anyway, I'm excited for their 3 hour long program that is stuffed with almost exclusively ballads and forced collaboration.
