Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat Fans Erupt After #BBMA Nomination “Snubs”

Published: Wednesday 23rd Sep 2020 by Rashad

Since unveiling the official 2020 nominations Tuesday (September 22), the Billboard Music Awards have been under fire for snubbing what many believe are the year’s biggest acts.

The criticism comes as the awards ceremony – which was initially scheduled for April – is set to air October 14 yet honor music acts based on the original chart period of award eligibility (March 23, 2019 through March 14, 2020).

Despite announcing the caveat, the organizers are still battling backlash from some of music’s most active fan bases – namely those of Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat.

Details inside:

Having landed their inaugural Hot 100 chart-toppers with two of the year’s biggest hits – ‘Savage’ and ‘Say So’ – Stallion and Cat respectively are easily the year’s breakout artists.  Yet, neither were mentioned in the #BBMA’s ‘Top New Artist’ categories.

Instead, the category reads as follows.

Top New Artist
Billie Eilish
Lil Nas X
Roddy Ricch

The fact the eligibility period predates the chart reigns of both ‘Savage’ and ‘Say So’ must not have mattered as fans lit into the awards show.

See highlights below:


If it’s any solace, Meg did nab a nod in the ‘Top Rap Female’ category while Doja was mentioned in the ‘Top R&B Song’ category for her Platinum hit, ‘Juicy.’

    Megs doing just fine. The other chick is washed

  2. Ugghh September 23, 2020

    Billy, Lizzo nor is Lil Naz X a new artist for this year. Wtf.

    Let’s just stop watching all these award shows.

  3. Section8DaGreat September 23, 2020

    Those nominations are based on last year. People need to learn to read the room

    • Ugghh September 23, 2020

      Billboard tracks their awards from March to March, so these awards would track from March 2019 to March 2020.

      Megan the Stallion and Doja singles and albums were both already out.

      So learn to read the facts because you can’t read a room.

      • Section8DaGreat September 23, 2020

        If it’s from March last year until March this year the my point was still made. Megan and Doja weren’t as big as those other artist from March last year until March this year fool.

    • Clarks0o0ñ September 23, 2020

      Drag it

      They cant read

  4. Charli+Cheer+Up September 23, 2020

    Rules are rules. Eligibility period is mainly for last year’s big acts and songs. No worries cuz Megan and Doja got good managmenet so they will still get a chance to perform their #1’s from this year at the show.

  5. Tori September 23, 2020

    I tjought Doja had 2 full length LP/albums out already…and Megan still doesn’t have a debut album, just a hand full of mistakes and singles… and Chloe × Haley are not new artist at all do why would anyone be upset they’re not in the category. But I also agree about Da Baby and Roddy Rich because they were blowing up radio last year. And Khalid really hasn’t made any noise since “Love Lies”. But as someone already stated, they’re counting from March 19- March 2020 so why the hell do y’all expect? Some of these ppl don’t even watch the show, they’re just looking for a reason to join cancel culture.

    • Clarks0o0ñ September 23, 2020

      “And Khalid really hasn’t made any noise since “Love Lies”.”

      Talk peaked at number 4
      Received a Grammy nomination
      Free spirit album debuted at number 1

      • Tori September 24, 2020

        Who remembers any of them? It’s solely because of the hypebof streaming and debut numbers because they honestly hold no weight and aren’t remembered.

  6. DC September 23, 2020

    Billboard tracks chart stats and numbers they didn’t make cut 😂😂😂

    • I am the Mf’kn Clout!!! September 23, 2020

      @DC: Exactly!!😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  7. Clarks0o0ñ September 23, 2020

    People who use Twitter are not intelligent

    There is something called eligibility period.

    This award show was supposed to take place earlier this year but thanks to c****, it was pushed back that why we are seeing old songs like old town road and senorita getting nominated.

    Next year, doja, megan, are going to dominate

    • #WAP September 23, 2020

      Soooo what’s your excuse for none of the Romance singles/album getting nominated? Senorita was included on Shawn’s album first so it is considered HIS song…she just recycled it for her album 😭🤣 What’s your excuuuuuuse?

      • Clarks0o0ñ September 24, 2020

        Sunflower was included on the spider man sound track first but post malone still added it on his own album, so?

        Camila scored 2 nominations . Senorita is her song, she wrote it and sang it. It’s on her album.

        What is normani’s excuse for getting ZERO nominations? I’m waiting.

        Onlyflops, u need to take ur schizophrenia medication before coming on the internet

  8. #WAP September 23, 2020

    Doja’s VMA was her last nomination. She’s racist and will be blacklisted.

  9. #WAP September 23, 2020

    Meg will prevail. Meg will have a long lasting career. Doja not so much

  10. Topeka September 23, 2020

    Doja is a racist & Meg is a t*****. That’s why they weren’t nominated.

  11. Paulo September 23, 2020

    Megan should be nominated next time cause she definitely built up after the eligibility period. Now Doja and Dua were snubbed again

  12. Magii Chill September 24, 2020

    You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
    I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.
