i don't think it has anything to do with elitism. i couldn't care less if my favourite musicians win awards. personally, i love pop culture, and i watch a lot of award shows, read countless year-end-lists, and all that. i don't need or want MY taste to be stroked and enforced, i just enjoy the discussion over the arts

however, the grammys are a different kind of garbage all together. the grammys don't award high culture, nor do they even acknowledge low culture. say what you will about the oscars, but at least they acknowledge the spectrum from time to time. the grammys ceremony, on the other hand, is entirely about rewarding those who ride gently down the middle of the road and achieve respectable if not phenomenal record sales. the committee is corrupt (and that ain't no tin foil hat stuff), and the program is about ratings and money, nothing more and nothing less.

don't get me wrong, i'm sure a lot of people think--zzzzz-the black keys are the best rock band in the world, and many others still consider marilyn manson a vital (and best?) 'metal band'

but who are the people who believe carly rae jepsom (or whatever), mumford and sons, jack white, and ed sheeran are the high point of (north) american music this year? nobody. nobody except a handful of children (those who spend the money), and those who make money off them. middle of the road garbage. tooootally boring.
