Gotye should've got a lot more noms.
That album was much more than one big single

John Mayer deserves some
And coldplay

Mumford and suns is Americana??? They're English. Or banjo is enough

The metal noms aren't much I like this year

And I still don't know diff between song and record?
Song is for the songwriters and Record is for the performer and production team.

I want to be happy for fun. because they've worked so long and hard and they're so talented. I just wish it was for a different album. Aim & Ignite trumps Some Nights any day.

i mean, he gets a nomination via his work with frank ocean, but it's absurd that born and raised didn't net him as much recognition as it should've.

He does get a nod thanks to Frank Ocean's AOTY nomination, but I imagined he would net at least one nomination on his own for Born and Raised.

Yeah, both of these. Not too much of a surprise though, as B&R didn't have that much mainstream presence compared to his other albums.

The timing of the record hurt his chances though, with pretty much zero promotion due to his vocal issues, mediocre sales compared to his previous records, and not a single song making a wave on the radio or otherwise.

I wouldn't mind if he at least made an appearance playing guitar with Frank Ocean, if he were to perform.

Better than usual I guess. Glad to see Miguel/"Adorn" getting some love.

I'd like to see him play for Frank Ocean. Born and Raised is by far his best album though.

Anyone else bumming hard from the fact that Call Me Maybe was nominated for song of the year? I don't mind best solo pop performance, that song is the definition of pop, but come on, song of the YEAR?....

Other than that, some really great nominations.

kind of surprised adele wasn't up for album of the year.

because that shit still dominated the charts this year.

She won a Grammy for 21 this year. They can't nominate the same record twice.

I'm bummed that John Mayer didn't get a single nomination this year. Born and Raised has been his best album yet.
Shocked he didn't get a nomination but Continuum is easily the best.

Biggest selling song of the year shouldn't be nominated for Song of The Year? That makes no sense.

Gangnam style sold a lot too. Doesn't mean it's good
