THE GRAMMYS 2021: ARE THEY REALLY BIASED OR ARE THE FANS JUST BEING CYNICAL

THE GRAMMYS 2021: ARE THEY REALLY BIASED OR ARE THE FANS JUST BEING CYNICAL

The GRAMMYS 2021: The 63rd annual Grammy award ceremony set to be held on January 31, 2021, just released the list of nominations for the various categories. And it is safe to say that various artists and their fans are not very pleased with it.

The Grammys are presented by the Recording Academy to individuals with achievements in the music industry and this is not the first time that they have been criticized for their choice in nominations.

In this article, we will review the nominations and see for ourselves if the award ceremony is actually biased or not.

Why are the Grammys 2021 facing backlash from the audience

The Grammys are not being criticized for the first time and it is not new for the nominations to be disappointing for everyone. Last year, the Grammy voting process was claimed to be rigged by a former CEO. And as mentioned before, the nominations are always criticized for missing out on some artist or the other.

This year’s nominations were announced a few days ago and the choices are quite bizarre, even undeserving according to some. And their reaction is not unjustified, there is barely any diversity in the nominations, the achievements of POC (Person of Colour) artists have not been included in the major categories, the Album of the Year category just does not make sense.

Coldplay LP that almost no one noticed scored a nomination, so did Justin Bieber’s mediocre album Changes.

Who are some of the artists that ‘deserved’ more nominations

The Weeknd who received no nominations for his 2020 album After Hours or his single Blinding Lights, both topped the charts and were a huge success, expressed his frustration and disappointment in his tweet.

Weekend’s tweet:

Even artists like Halsey and Selena Gomez, both of whom had singles that topped the charts, were ignored and not given nominations.

The BTS fandom, though happy about Dynamite’s nomination, were disappointed because Map of the Soul:7, the album which broke multiple records and topped iTunes in over 120 countries did not get a mention, nor did their equally successful single Black Swan.

BTS Tweet:

What do the fans think

The fans, putting it mildly, are not very pleased. They took to social media to express their anger and the unjust nominations. These are some tweets worth mentioning.

It is safe to say that the Recording Academy remains unmoved in its ways despite facing backlash every year and continues to deliberately ignore the deserving artists and more often than not are biased in their choices. This practice of them not being fair is seen by a lot of people as the Academy digging its own grave, some have even started to call it ‘no longer meaningful’.
