However, the Grammys (usually held in February as the last of the "big three" music awards shows--the others being the BMAs and the AMAs) is the approximate equivalent, in the music world, to the Oscarss.
The awards are named for the trophy given for them, a small gilded statuette of a gramophone.

 47th Grammy Awards
If you've been listening for the story of this year's Grammy Awards, then chances are you've been hearing the beat of the street: Nominees for the 47th annual Grammys, to be presented Sunday at Staples Center in Los Angeles, reflect a decidedly urban flava.
Awards in about 95 categories will be doled out during a pretelecast ceremony that commences at 1:30 p.m.
The same sentimental tide that fueled those awards probably spurred seven noms this year for the late Ray Charles: The American icon's final duets album, the Concord release "Genius Loves Company," has become his greatest commercial triumph, and the Oscar juggernaut that is Universal's Charles biopic "Ray" should help his Grammy chances immeasurably.

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").
