Random Topics - Grammy Awards

The Grammy Awards (originally called the Gramophone Awards)or Grammys, are presented annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States for outstanding achievements in the music industry. The awards ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a widely-viewed televised ceremony. The awards were established in 1958. Prior to the first live Grammys telecast in 1971 on ABC, a series of taped annual specials in the 1960s called The Best on Record were broadcast on NBC. The first Grammy Award telecast took place on the night of November 29, 1959, as an episode of the NBC anthology series Sunday Showcase, which was normally devoted to plays, original TV dramas, and variety shows. Until 1971, awards ceremonies were held in both New York and Los Angeles, with winners accepting at one of the two. Pierre Cossette bought the rights to broadcast the ceremony from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and organized the first live telecast. CBS bought the rights in 1973 after moving the ceremony to Nashville, Tennessee; the American Music Awards were created for ABC as a result.

1 Well, the Grammys, Academies etc. are all pre-decided by the industries running them. Whatever garnered the most money, success or whatever, wins. I think it's a joke whenever they mention that the people voted them to win. When really, it's the industries. -- Submitted By: () on December 26, 2014, 11:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 "Anaconda," "Bang Bang," "Fancy," "All About the Bass." Those are just a few of the crappy songs nominated for this year's awards. At least Maroon 5 and that awful "Maps" song didn't get any nominees. I can't stand that whiney voice and all their songs sound the same. When it is all said and done, Sam Smith will probably sweep all the categories he's nominated for, including best new artist. Will he have a lengthy career or is he going to fade away like Arrested Development, the group not the TV show. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 9, 2014, 7:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The way I see it, the songs that spend 10 or more weeks at #1 are automatic grammy nominations even if the song is horrible. That means that an annoying song like 'Blurred Lines' with it's sexist lyrics and awful rap interlude by TI will no doubt be nominated for record of the year, maybe even song of the year. Not to mention, it's a rip off of "Got To Give It Up" by Marvin Gaye. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on November 21, 2013, 6:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 @JayD: It seems that for the last few decades, every generation of music has at least one song that is completely bubbleheaded, yet inexplicably popular. For example, from the 60s, the song "Reach out of the Darkness", better known by its often-repeated lyric "So Groovy Now". Right now it's "Call Me Maybe"'s turn, but soon enough it'll fade off the pop-culture radar and be replaced by something else. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 26, 2013, 7:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 How that stupid "Call Me Maybe" song got nominated for song of the year is beyond me. At least the Grammies are not as bad as the Junos, the Canadian music awards. The chick that did that aforementioned song got the album of the year prize. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on June 23, 2013, 5:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 You know who I'm referring to and his manager is complaining that the Believe album and its singles were snubbed. And it's such a big story that it is overshadowing the artists who were nominated. And I'm also glad that Nikki wasn't nominated either. I can't stand that clown. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 7, 2012, 7:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 LMFAO were nominated because they are related to the Gordys, you know, the people who founded Motown. It's one big nepotism fest, these award shows. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 7, 2012, 6:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

9 They just released the grammy nominees for 2012. For the most part, I'm happy with the nominations, but why is that awful Sexy and I Know It nominated for best pop vocal/ duo or group? At least Justin What'shisname isn't nominated for anything. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 5, 2012, 11:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 You're right, that was an MTV music award he won for that song -- Submitted By: () on November 3, 2011, 6:28 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote

12 Didn't Bieber win a Grammy for his crappy song Baby Baby? No love lost though, i haven't taken the Grammys seriously since who knows when -- Submitted By: () on November 3, 2011, 12:16 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 All music awards bone, period. It's profoundly foolish to set artists up as competitors, then declare that Artist Y deserves an award and Artist Z does not. And look at the list of nominees in each category: Mostly the same artists, year after year, as if they are the only professional musicians in existence. And yes, metal is badly underrepresented. The Grammy mindset is that the highest-profile artists make the best music, and the more obscure artists make the worst (and can therefore be ignored). It's a deeply stupid mindset. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 3:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I think the grammys has sold out a long while ago just to be another clone of the MTV awards. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on January 12, 2011, 1:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Feh. Just another self-congratulatory celebrity circle jerk. The best thing you can say about the Grammies is that at least it's been around for a while as opposed to any awards show MTV or Spike TV does. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 29, 2010, 10:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I think there are simply way too many categories and the list grows every year. Now there are about 125 of them. I wish they would at least cut the number in half and get rid of some unnecessary categories, such as rap/sung and maybe even the best new artist. Most of the people who win best new artist end up disappearing within the next few years. Anyone remember the Starland Vocal Band? A Taste of Honey?Christopher Cross? Marc Cohn? and so on. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on June 29, 2010, 5:57 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
