 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.

The Grammy ceremony is the best TV variety show of the year since it features a wide range of great music acts -- rock, rap, classical, country -- on one stage.
As an award, the Grammy has favored courageous, cutting-edge fare now and then ("Jagged Little Pill," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"), but it tends to prefer good mainstream pop ("My Heart Could Go On," "I Will Always Love You," "Strangers in the Night").
Grammy winners tend to be the most popular artists or -- in the lower-profile categories -- those with the most name recognition.
