With the Recording Academy under fire, they are now changing their process when it comes to nominees. According to The New York Times the Recording Academy is eliminating the inclusion of secret committees to decide who ultimately makes the final group of nominees in many of the award shows key categories. These anonymous committees began in 1989 and impact 61 of the 84 categories. They were meant to protect the integrity of the nominees after collecting ballots from thousands of voters, but that hasnt been the case in recent years as theyv come under scrutiny by the music industry, fans and Grammy insiders.
