EXCLUSIVE Now I hear the NY chapter of the Recording Academy has canceled their annual nominees party set for January 10th. No new date has been announced.
With the NY party scuttled, it’s a signal say sources that my original story was correct: the Grammys, Musicares, and Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy dinner are leaving the weekend of January 30th and heading to April in all likelihood. The announcement should come shortly.
The Grammys are stuck with a lot of scheduling issues. The Super Bowl is set for the first week of February. Then comes two weeks of the Olympics. On February 26th we get the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
So March becomes the target. But March 27th is set for the Oscars. And any minute the Critics Choice Awards are going to take a prior Sunday. Other movie gatherings will happen in March as well. And this is all dependent on the COVID situation improving quickly. Right now Los Angeles has record numbers of cases every day.
So Grammys in April? Why not? As I said before, the first weekend marks by coincidence the 90th birthday of Clive Davis. Dedicate the whole weekend to him, I say!
