Iā€™m still not over Macklemore winning rap album of the year against Kendrick Lamar.

Is the absence of "WAP" (the WAPsence?) a big deal, or was that inventible?

Was the Weeknd expected to be nominated? I don't understand how he was "snubbed" any more than anyone else.

The Weeknd was probably a frontrunner for the major awards, so it's very surprising he got ZERO nominations. For a second I thought there may be a technicality involved, but nope.

There's more analysis here and here (sorry for all the Variety links, I don't work there or anything).

Also an update on the Grammys vs. Super Bowl performance thing.

considering how bad his very popular music is i am shocked he didn't get more grammy nominations

"blinding lights" getting no noms is pretty shocking given that it was easily the biggest multiformat radio hit of the year and is i guess generally considered a good song by serious folks. it's rare that major hits that are even somewhat critically respected fail to receive a nomination in any category.

if the 'r&b ppl thought he was pop and pop ppl thought he was r&b' scenario that variety posits is even somewhat true then wow the racist buffoons populating the industry are even worse than i previously imagined. then again i shouldn't be that surprised considering billboard is still listing "blinding lights" on its 'hot r&b songs' chart, where it's now been #1 for 36 weeks (lol)
