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.
Like the Oscars, the Grammys, which currently have 105 categories within 30 genres of music (such as pop, gospel, and rap), are voted upon by peers - voting members of the Recording Academy - rather than being based upon popularity (as with the BMAs and the AMAs).
The awards are named for the trophy which the winner receives - a small gilded statuette of a gramophone.

The Grammy Award is presented by the Recording Academy, an association of Americans professionally involved in the recorded music industry, for outstanding achievements in musical recordings.
Like the Oscars, the Grammies, currently with a total of 101 categories within 28 fields of music (such as pop, gospel, rap), are voted by peers - in this case voting members of the Recording Academy.
The Grammy voters tend to be elderly, musically conservative, and are heavily marketed to by record companies, who place great stock in some types of artists winning Grammys (accurately but cynically put as those which sell to "teenage girls and housewives").

Once The Beatles won three awards for Anthology (having won as many or less Grammys during their ENTIRE 64-70 run!) and Santana won about ten billion in one show...it became evident that the committee was backtracking to cover up what it feels its past mistakes were.
The 2001 Grammys when Gladys Knight won her only solo grammy award for "At Last", which really wasn't a good album, but had some nice cuts on it, won, and they showed a 16 sec clip of her as they went to commercial because that part of the ceremony was not in the show.
The Grammys have always had a reputation for embarrassing themselves with their nominations, but I think they sunk to a new low this year when Nelly's "Nellyville" got nominated for Album of The Year.
