Top 10 Snubs in the 2021 Grammy Awards

Here is a list of albums and artists that were snubbed for the 2021 Grammy Awards. I don't know how controversial this is... but the 2021 nominations are even worse than the 2020 nominations. Not nearly as bad as the 2019, I mean Cardi B didn't get nominated but... yeah. Some of the picks of this list will give you an idea about why this year's nominations were so bad.
The Top Ten
1 After Hours - The Weeknd After Hours - The Weeknd Product Image

BY FAR the biggest snub of the entire year, not only After Hours is one of the most succesful and acclaimed albums of the entire year, Blinding Lights it's also one of the most popular songs of the year, arguably the most popular song of the year, it has been in the top 10 since it's release and it never went downhill from there
Apparently The Weeknd got feud with the grammys so that explains why he was angry at twitter after the nominations got announced, and why he wasn't nominated for anything
Deserved Nominations:
- Album of the Year
- Record of the Year: Save Your Tears
- Song of the Year: Blinding Lights
- Best Pop Solo Performance: Blinding Lights (also what is Yummy being nominated?)
- Best Pop Vocal Album
- Best R&B Song: Blinding Lights
- Producer of the Year: Max Martin (Blinding Lights)
- Best Music Video: Blinding Lights

Probably the most shocking Grammy snub in the Academy's 60+ year history.

Not only was The Weeknd predicted to be nominated, but he was expected to be the big winner of the night.

It's a really unforgivable move to snub him, especially if it's anything related to the Super Bowl or meddling by the higher-ups.

Duh. This song was by far the most played song of the year, it has been in top ten on billboard ever since its release. I can't believe that this wasn't number one... these Grammy guys are dum

Yeah I have to say that your list of albums likely to be considered makes significantly more sense than the actual nominations.

2 RTJ4 - Run the Jewels RTJ4 - Run the Jewels Product Image

I don't get why this album didn't get nominated and why Run the Jewels get so snubbed, they deserve to be bigger, this album is charged with everything, from a lot of mix between rock and rap, from big political messages and statements, from straight great musical quality, personally I feel they deserve to be nominated, specially taking some of the "big" events from this year
Deserved Nominations:
- Album of the Year
- Record of the Year: Just
- Best Alternative Music Album
- Best Rap Performance: Ooh La La
- Best Rap Song: Just
- Best Rap Album

3 The New Abnormal - The Strokes The New Abnormal - The Strokes Product Image

Only got nominated for one award, Best Rock Album and hopefully they could get it
With that said they deserved more than one nomination, not only this album was really good, some of the songs were candidates for some of the best material of the year, and almost everyone agrees this is their best album since Room on Fire
Deserved Nominations:
- Album of the Year
- Record of the Year: At the Door
- Song of the Year: The Adults Are Talking
- Best Rock Song: Bad Decisions
- Best Alternative Music Album
- Best Music Video: At the Door

It got nominated for best rock album, but not best alternative album?

4 Chromatica - Lady Gaga Chromatica - Lady Gaga Product Image

Another big album made by a big name that surprisingly didn't ended nominated for more, it ended being nominated for pop album and duo performance tho, but not enough nominations sadly, not only Rain on Me was a fantastic song, the whole album turned to be a really great project for Gaga, showing her most energetic and poppiest efford since '11 Born This Way
Deserved Nominations:
- Album of the Year
- Song of the Year: Rain on Me
- Best Pop Solo Performance: Stupid Love
- Best Music Video: Stupid Love

This wasn't nominated? I don't understand this!

5 Circles - Mac Miller Circles - Mac Miller Product Image

Surprises me that Mac didn't get a nomination despite the quality of the album, and what an album that this one resulted to be, wish the grammys would have gave him a chance despite him being dead
Deserved Nominations:
- Song of the Year: Good News
- Best R&B Performance: Good News
- Best R&B Song: Good News
- Best Melodic Rap Performance: Blue World
- Best Rap Album

6 Petals for Armor - Hayley Williams Petals for Armor - Hayley Williams Product Image

Honestly I'm not surprised it get snubbed thanks to Hayley's lack of promotion to it and the abysmal way she pull out the album (it was bad, don't @dd me), however watching at the nominations for alternative and rock music, it makes me a little sad she didn't get nominated when other woman like Phoebe Bridgers, Fiona Apple, Brittany Howard and Haim got lucky with their projects, makes me think Hayley needed more appreciation
Deserved Nominations:
- Record of the Year: Simmer
- Best Rock Performance: Simmer
- Best Rock Album
- Best Alternative Music Album

This should've gotten a nominee.

7 Fine Line - Harry Styles Fine Line - Harry Styles Product Image

Harry got 3 nominations: Best Pop Solo Performance for Watermelon Sugar, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video for Adore You, all the 3 nominations are okay but personally I feel he deserved more nominations, I mean having he in the AOTY feels better than Black Pumas or Jacob Collier who aren't even well known
Deserved Nominations:
- Album of the Year
- Record of the Year: Adore You
- Song of the Year: Watermelon Sugar
Not sure if nominating him for the alternative category since Fine Line is more of a pop album than an alternative album

8 Set My Heart on Fire Immediately - Perfume Genius Set My Heart on Fire Immediately - Perfume Genius Product Image

Another great album that sadly wasn't given a chance this year, despite how good it is, and the recognition Perfume genius is having as an artist lately
Deserved Nominations:
- Record of the Year: On the Floor
- Best Pop Solo Performance: On the Floor
- Best Rock Song: Describe
- Best Alternative Music Album

9 Use My Voice - Evanescence Use My Voice - Evanescence Product Image
10 Pick Me Up Off the Floor - Norah Jones Pick Me Up Off the Floor - Norah Jones Product Image
The Contenders
11 Ohms (song) - Deftones
12 Legends Never Die - Juice WRLD Legends Never Die - Juice WRLD Product Image

Despite not being the biggest fan of Juice Wrld and neither this album, this and Circles proved a great example of how to do a posthumous album, and having a collection of really decent songs that are truly some of Juice's best work
Deserved Nominations:
- Best Pop Solo Performance: Wishing Well
- Best Melodic Rap Performance: Wishing Well
- Best Rap Album

13 Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent - Lewis Capaldi Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent - Lewis Capaldi Product Image

He’s Not My Favourite Simger But Lewis Capaldi Worked Hard On This Album So I Can Appreciate That He Tried

14 Song Machine, Season One - Gorillaz Song Machine, Season One - Gorillaz Product Image

I forgot about this one... but truly Gorillaz' best album since Plastic Beach
Deserved Nominations:
- Record of the Year: Aries
- Best Alternative Music Album
- Best Music Video: Aries

15 Ohms - Deftones Ohms - Deftones Product Image

Arguably the best atmospheric/ambient metal album of the decade and not onemention? (Also, #justiceforabel)

16 Rough and Rowdy Ways - Bob Dylan Rough and Rowdy Ways - Bob Dylan Product Image

Considering how critically acclaimed this album was and Dylan's status as a icon in music, it was disappointing to see him anywhere in the nominations, specially when this has been his best project in a long time
Deserved Nominations:
- Best Rock Performance: False Prophet
- Best Rock Song: False Prophet
- Best Americana Album

17 Music to Be Murdered By - Eminem Music to Be Murdered By - Eminem Product Image

Eminem Is The Greatest Rapper Alive, Music To Be Murdered By Should Win Or Least Be Nominated For Album Of The Year, Godzilla Should Win Or At Least Be Nominated For Song Of The Year

18 Smile - Katy Perry Smile - Katy Perry Product Image
19 Gaslighter - The Chicks Gaslighter - The Chicks Product Image

The Chicks deserves a nomination for Best Country Album.

20 Manic - Halsey Manic - Halsey Product Image
