You probably gathered from previous years’ posts that I generally find the Grammy Awards a bit silly – there are just too many over-specific categories for it really to be meaningful. But it’s worth trawling through them once a year to see what happened, so here’s a summary for 2020!
#9 Best Dance Recording
The Chemical Brothers beat Bonobo and others to win this with Got to Keep On. They were also nominated for We’ve Got to Try for Best Music Video.
#10 Best Dance/Electronic Album
The Chemical Brothers won this too, for No Geography, beating Apparat‘s LP5, Tycho‘s latest, and others.
#16 Best Alternative Music Album
Thom Yorke won for Anima, which was also nominated for Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package and Best Music Film. He was also nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media, for Suspirium.
#51 Best World Music Album
Angelique Kidjo won for Celia.
That’s about all I could find, although I must confess I’m intrigued by the nominations for Best Immersive Audio Album, and a few others. If you have the patience to work through the full list of nominees and winners yourself, visit the official website here, and click on “Read More”.
