A GRAMMY is awarded by the Recording Academy's voting membership to honor excellence in the recording arts and sciences.
These awards recognize contributions and activities of significance to the recording field that fall outside the framework of the GRAMMY Awards categories, and include the Lifetime Achievement Award, the Trustees Award, the GRAMMY Hall of Fame Award, the Technical GRAMMY Award, and the GRAMMY Legend Award.
The GRAMMY Awards are telecast annually to an international audience of over 2 billion in 180 countries.

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).
Some feel that because Grammy voters tend to vote conservatively, and are marketed to by record companies (viewed as pushing artists that sell to "teenage girls and housewives"), the most widely-recognized Grammys tend to go to either well-established artists or those being hyped by the recording industry.
Unlike the Academy Awards, for which the eligiblilty period begins January 1, the eligibility period for the Grammys begins October 1, which results in September being considered the Christmas sales period for the music industry (in which artists generally release big albums to qualify for the next year's Grammy).

 Profile: Pierre Cossette
When producer Pierre Cossette put together the deal for the first live televised Grammy Awards in 1971, he literally took a hands-on approach to making the broadcast from the Hollywood Palladium a success: Just before airtime, Cossette stood on Hollywood Boulevard, hustling passers-by into the venue to join the audience.
Cossette's work with the Grammys might be his most enduring and notable achievement, but he admits he was surprised when the show even got off the ground.
Grammy director Walter C. Miller notes that his years with Cossette have been marked by fierce loyalty, fast friendship and some unusual table manners.

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").

 Definition of Grammy award
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.
The awards are named for the trophy which the winner receives - a small gilded statuette of a gramophone.
So, for example, John Lennon and Yoko Ono's album Double Fantasy was released in November, 1980, a month-and-a-half too late to qualify for the 1981 Grammys, and thus eligible for the 1982 awards (it eventually won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year).
