Grammys Cast a Wider Net Than Usual

Awards * Breaking recent tradition, the academy's nominations are spread out among many acts.

January 04, 2001|GEOFF BOUCHER | TIMES STAFF WRITER

The Grammy Award winners will be decided by the 12,000 voting members of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. The academy's voters also vote on nominees, but a blue-ribbon committee selects the final five nominees in top categories from the general membership's top 20 vote-getters. That system was put in place in recent years to winnow out undeserving nominees in the high-profile fields.

The awards this year have 100 categories (including with two new ones: best Native American music album and best pop instrumental album) with more than 500 nominees. The eligibility period was Oct. 1, 1999, through Sept. 30, 2000.
