Last week, the number of Grammy 2022 nominations dropped, including no less than 7 nominations for Olivia Rodrigo, as expected. But this year’s list of nominees is also consists of a chain of men that, despite many claims to the contrary, seems to be irrevocable.
For example, Louis CK, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by five women, was nominated for Best Comedy Album. Year 2017, CK sorry for his behavior, admitting that “the stories are true” and expressing remorse, concluding that he would “step back and spend more time listening.” Seems like a long time ended a while ago, when CK debuted a return trip this early year. In Best regards, Louis CK, comedy special for which he was nominated, he discuss his life after the accusations, noted that he learned to sit alone in restaurants where other patrons flashed him the middle finger. He also joked about accusations (again, admittedly true) that he masturbated in front of female colleagues. CK said in the special issue: “I like being startled. “I like company. I like to share. I’m good too. If you’re good at juggling, you won’t do it alone in the dark. You would rather collect people and surprise them. “
Another disgraced man to get a nomination? Marilyn Manson, who is facing some lawsuits before allegations of sexual assault, sexual abuse and human trafficking and received a nod for his contributions to Kanye West’s Donda. Manson, whose accusers include actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esme Bianco, more than one refuse charges against him. Also nominated this year: rapper DaBaby, who is also credited Donda despite the backlash from fans and other famous musicians watching gay opinion he took the stage earlier this year. Dave Chappelle, whose recent Netflix special has arrived under fire for agoraphobia, has also been nominated in the spoken word category 8:46, His collaborative album with poet Amir Sulaiman.
While Manson was originally nominated twice for his work DondaThe Recording Academy later announced that he would no longer be nominated as a songwriter for Best Rap Song – apparently not because of the backlash, but because “he’s not listed” listed among the writers on the latest release of the album, “New York Times report. However, he was still nominated as the artist of the year in the Album of the Year category. The news comes days after the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department of Special Victims serve warrant to search the Manson home in West Hollywood.
In an interview with The Wrap after the initial nominations, Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy, responded to the backlash surrounding Manson’s nomination in particular, arguing that the allegations were not an appropriate consideration: “We are we won’t look at people’s background, we won’t look at their criminal records, we won’t look at anything other than the legitimacy of our rules, audio recordings for whether this work is eligible based on date and other criteria. “
Well, I guess we have another example to point to next time Dave Chappelle (or anyone else, for that matter) goes into a talk about “cancelling culture.”
