The day before the 2022 Grammy Awards nominees were announced, representatives from the Recording Academy, which oversees the awards, began informing members of the media that the four top awards — the “Big Four” of Best Album, Song, Record and New Artist — would be expanded to ten from the previous eight. While the timing […]

Grammys CEO Addresses Marilyn Manson, Louis CK Nominations: “We Won’t Look Back At People’s History”

Yesterday, the Recording Academy unveiled the nominations for next year’s Grammys. They were weird, in the way that Grammy nominations are always weird. ABBA and Sun Ra Arkestra were nominated for the first time ever. Taylor Swift and Kanye West are up against each other for Album Of The Year. Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste somehow led the field with 11 nominations. But people noted two nominees in particular: Marilyn Manson and Louis CK.

Grammy Nominations 2022: Surprises, Snubs, & More Takeaways

The Recording Academy continues to exist within its own strange dimension, one in which Jon Batiste is the center of the musical universe and the second Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett jazz duets album was one of the landmark popular music events of 2021. You have to hand it to them for the consistency, at least: So many extremely Grammys-esque artists were showered with nominations today in preparation for the Jan. 31 ceremony at, uh, Crypto.com Arena. Some of them, like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber a...

Grammy Voters: Deadline for First-Round Voting, Which Determines Nominees, Is Tomorrow

Without overstating the case, it’s fair to say that the past few years have shown us what happens when we don’t bother to vote. While the Grammy Awards are nowhere near as important as a national, state-wide or local election, it’s certainly one of the most important votes in the music community. And the Grammy […]

Brandi Carlile “Surprised And Disappointed” Grammys Are Categorizing Her New Single As Pop, Not Roots

When Brandi Carlile’s team submitted her In These Silent Days single “Right On Time” to the Recording Academy for 2022 Grammy consideration, they submitted for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best American Roots Song, Best American Roots Performance, and Best Music Video, Short Form. Surprising Carlile, the song was not accepted into any of the American roots categories.

Grammy Voters: First Voting Round Closes Nov. 5 — Here’s Everything You Need to Know

We at Variety usually reserve our get-out-the-vote efforts for things like presidential and congressional elections. But with the Grammy Awards’ dramatic changes to the voting process earlier this year — most notably the elimination of the “secret” nominating committees, which makes the Recording Academy membership’s individual votes more important than they’ve been in decades — […]

How Will the Grammy Rule Changes Impact This Year’s Nominations?

For as long as most of us can remember, the process around the Grammy Awards has been a dark art, ostensibly determined by the 12,000-strong voting body of the Recording Academy — the nonprofit established to represent the music industry and stage the awards — but overseen, and some have said influenced, by an amorphous […]

Bo Burnham’s Hit Comedy Album Inside (The Songs) Deemed Ineligible For Comedy Album Grammy

Bo Burnham’s Netflix comedy special Inside was a big hit this year, as was its accompanying album Inside (The Songs). But Burnham’s hit comedy album has been deemed ineligible for the Best Comedy Album award at the Grammys next year. As Billboard reports, the Recording Academy decided that Inside (The Songs) does not meet the criteria to compete for the category.

Grammy nominations are always fraught with drama, but it started early this year — six weeks before the nominations are even announced — when the president of Kacey Musgraves’ record label fired off an impassioned letter to Recording Academy chief Harvey Mason jr. on Sunday, imploring him to reconsider the decision not to count Musgraves’ […]

Kacey Musgraves’ New Album Deemed Ineligible For Country Music Grammy

The Recording Academy doesn’t think Kacey Musgraves is country anymore. Her new album star-crossed has been deemed ineligible for Country Album Of The Year at the Grammys, Billboard reports. The ruling was made last week during the Recording Academy’s annual screening committee meeting, where submissions are reviewed to make sure they are placed in the appropriate genre category.
