Kanye West featured on the list of nominees for the 2021 Grammy Awards. The awards will be celebrating its 63rd year, on January 31, 2021, and will honor the work of a multitude of stars from the music world in the presence of the greatest of the great stars from the industry. Each year, the Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles gears up to host this iconic ceremony. However, details about where they'll be held this year are yet to be announced courtesy of Covid-19 restrictions.

The nominations for the 63rd iteration were released on Tuesday (November 24) and big players from the industry were snubbed, resulting in a lot of opposition and agitation bubbling within the industry as well as from fans of the artists who didn't receive nominations. Fiona Apple, Bad Bunny, BTS, Blackpink and BENEE are some big names with releases this year but all of them ended up being ignored in major categories. The Weeknd released 'Blinding Lights', possibly the biggest hit this year and his fans went into overdrive with anger after he too didn't make it to the nominations. Kanye West, on the other hand, made it to the list. His album 'Jesus Is King' is up for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. This despite him peeing on past trophies, just a couple of months ago. 

"Let me get this straight... So Avril said the awards were overrated and she was banned from the Grammys... but Kanye does this and he still gets nominated?????" wrote an irate fan upset with his nomination. "Kanye West literally pissed on his Grammy AND STILL GOT NOMINATED but The Weeknd got nothing? I swear whoever running the Grammy’s is straight a**" wrote another.

"Speaking of rioting in the streets, Kanye got nominated in a Christian category, and he better f*****g win it, and they better f*****g televise it, because if the academy wants to just give up and turn their awards show into a f*****g joke they better go all the way," tweeted another fan. "While the Grammy nominations are bull like all award shows are, the craziest thing is Kanye being nominated for best gospel album. That’s just blasphemous." wrote another. "So let me get this straight. Kanye peed on his Grammy award months ago and still got nominated YET Abel who produced one of the biggest digital and physical album sales of the year which didn’t get nominated ?? disgusting!" read another tweet.



 



 



 



 



 

The Weeknd responded via his Twitter after his fans continued blasting the Grammys on Twitter, seeking an explanation about how and why he was left out. "The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency..." he tweeted. Nicki Minaj too shaded the awards tweeting, "Never forget the Grammys didn’t give me my best new artist award when I had 7 songs simultaneously charting on billboard & bigger first week than any female rapper in the last decade- went on to inspire a generation. They gave it to the White man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday".

 



 

 



 

Rapper Wiz Khalifa too weighed in on The Weeknd being snubbed after a fan asked him, "Do you think Abel was snubbed?". Wiz responded saying, "Yea that's a surprise but it's politics. If you don't show up to their parties they don't throw your name around" and in a separate tweet branded the award as the "Scammys".
