Details of Grammy Awards and the Ticket Luck value
While the Grammy Awards are one of the best known events in Hollywood, unfortunately tickets are not sold from outlets. As much as we would like to, please note that WE DO NOT SELL tickets for the Grammy Awards.
The Grammy Awards are presented annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States for outstanding achievements in the record industry. Originally they are called the Gramophone or Grammys Awards.
The awards ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the more prominent Grammy Awards are presented in a widely-viewed televised ceremony. The current President of the Academy is Neil Portnow.
The Grammys are considered the highest music honor, the U.S. record industrys equivalent to the Academy Awards Oscars for motion pictures. The awards were established in 1958.
Prior to the first live Grammys telecast on ABC, a series of taped annual specials called The Best on Record were broadcast on NBC. The first Grammy Award telecast took place on the night of November 29, 1959, as an episode of the NBC anthology series Sunday Showcase.
Until 1971, awards ceremonies were held in both New York and Los Angeles, with winners accepting at one of the two. Pierre Cossette bought the rights to broadcast the ceremony from NARAS, and organized the first live telecast.
CBS bought the rights in 1973. The award show is normally held in February. The 50th Grammy Awards ceremony was held on February 10, again at the Staples Center.
Years ago, the old smaller gramophone had to be revamped because the metals were too soft and there were many problems with the trophy breaking. The trophy was made bigger and grander.
The Grammy is assembled in pieces and finally finished off in gold plating. The trophies used for the broadcast are called stunt Grammys. The General Field is four awards which are not restricted by genre, and are generally considered to be the most important.
Special awards are also given out for more long-lasting contributions to the music industry. Other awards are given for performance and production in specific genres, as well as for other contributions such as artwork and video.
The nomination process requires that members vote only in their fields of expertise. They may nominate in the four general categories and in no more than nine out of 31 fields on their ballots.
Once the nominations are secured, Recording Academy members may then vote in the four general categories and in no more than eight of the 31 fields. Ballots are tabulated secretly by the major independent accounting firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.
As of 2006, the eligibility period for the Grammy Awards begins October 1. Certain musical artists have voiced personal issues with the nature of the Grammys.
Singer Maynard James Keenan, of rock band Tool did not attend the Grammys ceremony to receive their award. He explained his reasons: I think the Grammys are nothing more than some gigantic promotional machine for the music industry.
They cater to a low intellect and they feed the masses. The Grammys are often criticized for failing to represent adequately the sentiments of the public.
Some critics have argued that major award shows like the Grammys are merely the recording industrys attempt to congratulate them while advertising their products and ideas through the use of selection bias in the nomination and award process.
Other critics within and outside of the industry, question openly whether music award shows are relevant in todays digital society.
Award shows like the Grammys appear generally to be relevant agents of change in the industry: Billboard Magazine regularly observes a spike in an artist or groups album after winning a Grammy Award.
Additionally, many have criticized the Grammys for distributing many more awards than necessary, and that a large portion of the ceremony is filler to result in a longer engagement.
Trent Reznor wrote on his blog December 6, 2007, While the music industry is doing everything they possibly can to go out of business, can we all make sure to rid ourselves of the Grammys, too?.
ENOUGH! Have a nice day. As of 2007, 7,578 Grammy trophies have been awarded. The 51st Grammy Awards will be held on February 8, 2009 once again at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
