The Biggest Debates About The 2017 Grammy Nominations

The Twitter Recording Academy is weighing in.

Published December 6, 2016

It's official: the Recording Academy has spoken and announced its 59th Annual Grammy Award nominees. And it’s only right that social media’s Grammy board convenes next.

And that it has, calling out the salutes and the snubs left and right, as debates over who is most deserving of the accolades in each category sharply emerge. From Beyoncé’s genre-crossing world domination to Desiigner’s Grammy-debuting “Panda” nod, to the cold-shouldering of Rihanna’s fan-favorited ANTI, 2017’s nominees have everybody weighing in pretty heavily.

Now while many of these arguments do rest on deadline technicalities, there are a few categories that deadlines don’t apply to, and some feel the Recording Academy didn’t include artists who were deserving of their musical just dues.

Bang the gavel with these six Grammy nomination debates below.

  1. Should 'Views' Have Been Nominated For Album of the Year?
  2. Was "Panda" Grammy-Worthy?
  3. Does Beyoncé Deserve All The Praise?
  4. Why Was 'ANTI' Not Nominated For Album of the Year?
  5. Where Would 'Blonde' Have Landed?
  6. Should Solange Have Earned More Seats At The Grammy Table?
