    Kendrick Lamar should win big because of the daylight robbery of two years ago.

    I'm reliably informed that Courtney Barnett should win best newcomer.

    I don't think it's possible for me to care any less about the other categories though.

    *Serious answer relating to not-serious post* I actually left jazz out because they didn't include this. It's an outrage I tell you.
