So I had fun with awards season and making predictions. While the Grammys are far passed, there are still a few more smaller award shows coming up. I decided I would do my own massive music awards here for all genres. The eligible contenders are music that’s been released between January 1, 2016, and March 3, 2017. All genres that I have input on will be included here and there will be five nominees per category, except record, album & song of the year. I will bold the winners on March 8, 2017.
