    Black ish should’ve been nominated!

    • Me Again… December 25, 2017


    • Meme December 25, 2017

      Exactly. Best show on tv.

      • Belladonna December 26, 2017

        Stranger Things,Game Of Thrones, Riverdale & The Good Doctor are the best Shows on Tv. But Blackish is a nice show

  2. Gee December 25, 2017

    Anything to keep the same people in the headlines as always with this blog anything to acknowledge Beyoncé, Rita, and Nicki. Yet with almost three decades in entertainment and continuously overcoming and preserving all this blog does is shade Mariah or give her back handed compliments. Yet half of people y’all praise besides Beyoncé and JayZ could only dream of one tenth of her longevity and a fraction of her success. Even with her missteps her name still attracts an audience and rings bells.

    • Abel December 25, 2017

      This blog tries so hard with this Rita Ora thing for ages…this award is bullshat

  3. Dave December 25, 2017

    Lol…interesting categories

  4. Suicide Blonde December 25, 2017

    Beyoncé for being Beyoncé is the most pathetic thing ever, every year is the same, only the BeyHive ??‍♂️

    • Abel December 25, 2017


    • IOWNTHEWORLD December 26, 2017

      Stfu. You probably say the same thing about The Grammys yet continue to watch.

  5. truthteller December 25, 2017

    I honesty haven’t heard of 4 of the “International” acts and I only know of the dreadful Little Mix and Rita Ora because this blog constantly writes about them

    • Caleb December 25, 2017

      Do you not know WizKid? If you don’t check him out. He’s not to be slept on.

      • Killian December 25, 2017

        Wow , I am so surprised you’re into the Nigerian artist wizkid, he really is becoming a global act, which of his songs do you like best?

  6. Paulo December 25, 2017

    Back 2 Life should’ve been nominated for Underrated Album.

  8. Yes. December 25, 2017

    Taylor Swift come and stole the year. Best selling album of the year. Love this album.

    • IOWNTHEWORLD December 26, 2017

      Somebody better come and steal all those unsold copies of Reputation off the shelves. There’s so many copies that it takes up all the space in the stores. ?

  9. Caleb December 25, 2017

    This was quite the year in pop culture my goodness. And so many good movies came out this year like “Get Out” and although technically 2016 “Moonlight” deserves mention for its Oscar win. Definitely didn’t see that coming.

  10. GurlWepa1989 December 25, 2017

    It’s obvious that this is a Beyonce fan site ?

  11. Caleb December 25, 2017

    This was also the year in which I became truly embarrassed for the first time to be a Nicki Minaj fan. The way she was so ready to respond to perceived disses from Remy Ma with lines in ‘Make Love’ and ‘Swalla’ only to be dragged through the mud with ‘Shether’ less than 2 days later… Walking straight into a trap and severely underestimating her opponent. She must have been taken aback, going at everybody else on social media while trying to pretend to be unbothered for 2 weeks. Then when she did respond weeks later it was with some truly lackluster bars. “Back to back, oh you mean back to wack? … rah took you to her doc but you don’t look like rah. Left the operating table still look like nah.” How you call yourself the rap queen but can’t come with a good response to someone who dragged your whole life? Then there’s the fact she’s been saying her album about to drop since “Run Up” came out in January, only to drop feature after feature all year, most of them which have been underwhelming until only recently when she started dropping some fire verses again. The clock’s ticking and eventually people move on.

    • sammy December 26, 2017

      Really. Nicki actually split the whole diss thing into many tracks that actually ended up charting and increased her billboard legacy. Bitter remy’s songs couldn’t chart. She is way too bitter thinking she could use the whole diss to be relevant, instead she ended up fooling herself

  12. Ocean December 25, 2017

    You know sometimes this blog shows Everyday a struggle type potential, real good non bias content.

    Then other times it’s no different to the paidroom, b*****, teatenders etc

    Which is surprising since industry folk are the ones writing the misspelled, misinformed, shady and paid PR content.

    The categories and the nominees are as trash as a VMA or Grammy awards.

    The fact that More Life a project Drake has explicitly said is not an album sits in an album of the year category.

    Or the fact that Letoya Back to Life isn’t mentioned in underrated album

    Miguel isn’t underrated whatsoever. His new work is just trash.

    Beyonce for being Beyonce… ya’ll where bored at this point huh?

    Or how about the fact that Sexual Scandal is even a nominated topic to vote upon as shocking moment of the year. Sexual abuse is not a topic that should be voted on in any way shape or form. The fact that it is in a poll is real tasteless and suggests that someone in TGJ believes the other topics compare. They don’t.

    • Abel December 25, 2017

      TGJ is a mess

  13. dookie December 25, 2017

    Some of these award titles and nominations are so shady especially with Katy Perry

  14. Belladonna December 26, 2017

    What the hell is up with the Tv show & Movie nominations? No Stranger Things or Game of Thrones or Masters of None on Netflixs I understand INSECURE because that show is amazing but the Others? And Movies Where is Logan, guardians of the galaxy vol 2, Thor Ragnarok or Star Wars the last Jedi? This is Crazy?

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 26, 2017

      This is an urban blog

      • Belladonna December 27, 2017

        So because we’re black we can’t have good taste in shows & movies? Lol This is nuts black People are more diverse then the nominations they have up there. Stranger Things is the best show of the year!!! And I’m guessing people on here don’t watch awards movies like THE DISASTER ARTIST, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, THE SHAPE OF WATER, THE POST or LADY BRIDE? Smh ??‍♀️

  15. StarXavi December 26, 2017

    I don’t like these nominees or categories…the fact that Demi Lovato who had an amazing year in music with Sorry Not Sorry and the Tell Me You Love Me album is not nominated and her performances this era vocally slayed all her contemporaries. Like diversify TGJ
