  Grammy Awards
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.
Some feel that because Grammy voters tend to vote conservatively, and are marketed to by record companies, 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).

 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.
