Where are the Stray Kids? God's Menu and Back Door marked the year 2020 of Kpop! Look at the number of covers and likes, unbelievable for a band with less media coverage than others. We all know that the results depend mostly on fandom votes. But MAMA should stop favoring the most popular ones to please the fandoms, and should take an interest in and reward other artists who have made music history. Korean music is not only kpop, there are also Indies, Rock, Ballad,... it's a diverse and rich world that evolves thanks to many artists, and not only one or two artists/groups. (And it's not because I don't share the dominant opinion that I'm a hater, I'm just a person who loves music in general without being closed to one artist or one band).

Cant believe that sweet night by V was not nominated for best OST and also black swan and on

Anonymous 4 weeks ago

I think it's because Gaho's OST was a huge success in Korea while the singer was unknown and it is the main soundtrack of Itaewon Class (he was present throughout the drama). Whereas Sweet night you only hear it in 1 or 2 episodes.

They can't just ignore Map of the soul .. I mean come on, we have the best album here, and ON must have been nominated for the best choreography.. Black Swan for best vocal performance plus mv... Sweet Night which topped iTunes must have been nominated for best ost and RM did deserve a nomination for best collaboration... MAMA should update their nomination list..
