However, the Grammys, usually held in February (last of what are considered the "big three" music awards shows, including the BMA and AMA shows), are considered the approximate equivalent to the Oscars in the music world.
For example, John Lennon and Yoko Ono's album Double Fantasy was released in November 17, 1980, 16 days too late to qualify for the 1981 Grammys; it was entered for the 1982 awards and eventually won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
Prior to the first live Grammys telecast in 1971 on ABC (CBS bought the rights in 1973 after moving the ceremony to Nashville, Tennessee; the American Music Awards were created for ABC as a result), a series of taped annual specials in the 1960s called The Best on Record were broadcast on NBC.

The recent announcement of Grammy nominations for "best Native American music album" represents a breakthrough for the genre.
For years, Native American artists, record companies and music fans have seen their favorite albums and musicians get passed up during award time, or get square-pegged into weird categories like new age, folk or world.
For instance, albums that incorporate contemporary rock sounds can't be considered, and those with European or African instruments and influences have been disregarded as well.
