Only one woman won an award during the main event at the music celebration Sunday night — Alessia Cara, who took home the Best New Artist.

The rest of the categories were overwhelmingly dominated by men, particularly Bruno Mars, who swept song, record and album of the year categories.

"Recording Academy president Neil Portnow blamed women for not making enough music to win awards.

“I think it has to begin with women who have the creativity in their hearts and souls, who want to be musicians, who want to be engineers, who want to be producers, who want to be part of the industry on the executive level to step up," he said.

Yeah, there you go. Blame it on the girls. Like THAT'S never happened!

Another example of how Women can compete with Men on equal footing.

This is why we should combine Men's and Women's sports. Do away with Title IX in College.

Yea, I too. I thought we were now all just blobs of cells and we could define ourselves. What is this man/woman thing they speak of?

I thought it was big news that Carrie Fisher won one and she doesn’t even sing.

PS the Grammys are meaningless. The Beatles lost to Winchester Catherdral. Milli Vannili won one. Barack Obama won two of them.

It was “in the bag” for Hillary Rodham Clinton to win a grammy by her own words.

I had considered going to Vegas with my wife to see him in concert. I just couldn’t justify the expense. But that’s because I would want to sit up near the front.

As I understand it, he said women don’t work hard enough, they’re not creative, so they aren’t qualified to be at the executive level. Waiting to see if there’s blowback now.

I’m old enough to remember when people actually cared about these celebrity award shows.
