Grammys: A Familiar Face, A Few Surprises Babyface Leads In Nominations For A Second Year.

Posted: January 07, 1998

For the second year in a row, songwriter, producer and vocalist Kenneth ``Babyface'' Edmonds received more nominations than any other artist for the annual Grammy Awards, whose 40th edition will be held Feb. 25 at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

Edmonds, 39, who was nominated 12 times and won three Grammys last February, was recognized in eight categories this year, including album of the year, male pop vocal and pop vocal collaboration.

There were a few genuine surprises in yesterday's announcement. Bob Dylan, whose Time Out of Mind turned up on many critics' best-of-1997 lists, received three nominations: for album of the year, contemporary-folk album, and male rock vocal (for the Time track ``Cold Irons Bound'').

And his son Jakob, the 28-year-old leader of the Wallflowers, was honored twice in the rock-song category - for writing ``The Difference'' and ``One Headlight,'' both from the band's Bringing Down the Horse. The Wallflowers were also cited for ``One Headlight'' in the group rock vocal category.

Artists associated with the Philadelphia area drew an unprecedented 16 nominations - including five in rhythm-and-blues categories for Patti LaBelle, Boyz II Men, and the quintet Az Yet, and four for the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Behind Edmonds, Sean ``Puff Daddy'' Combs and Paula Cole were the next-most-nominated artists, with seven nods each. Cole, a singer-songwriter trained at the Berklee College of Music, received album-of-the-year recognition for her This Fire. In addition to the 56-year-old Dylan, her competition in the category is another '60s icon, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, 55, whose Flaming Pie was nominated, along with Radiohead's OK Computer and Babyface's The Day.

R. Kelly and new soul siren Erykah Badu each received five nominations. Not surprisingly, the omnipresent Combs is competing against himself in the rap performance sweepstakes. He coproduced Notorious B.I.G.'s ``Mo Money Mo Problems'' featuring him and Mase; and he was the driving force behind ``I'll Be Missing You,'' a rewrite of the Police hit ``Every Breath You Take,'' which memorialized Notorious B.I.G. and was performed by Combs, Faith Evans and 112.

The approximately 9,000 voting members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, which include artists and producers, considered thousands of albums and singles released between Oct. 1, 1996, and Sept. 30, 1997, to develop nominations in 92 categories. As in previous years, small committees of informed academy members helped ensure that deserving recordings in specific subgenres, such as dance music, a new designation, were represented.

Several of the academy's more unusual choices turned up in the new-artist category. The academy defines the category as one that honors a new artist ``who releases, during the eligibility year, the first recording which establishes the public identity of that artist.'' Such careful wording is necessary to explain some of this year's nominees, which include Fiona Apple, whose debut was released in June 1996, and Cole, whose acclaimed This Fire is her second album. (They will compete for the new-artist Grammy against Badu, Hanson, and Combs, who has been an established rap producer for several years but did not release an album as the featured performer until 1997.)

Another unusual multiple entry: Diane Warren's ``How Do I Live'' is entered in the song of the year category, a composer's award, and twice in the female country vocal performance, for renditions by both LeAnn Rimes and Trisha Yearwood.

Other oddities: David Bowie was cited for his album Earthling in, of all things, the alternative-music category. He'll vie with Bjork, Radiohead and two of the most visible electronica acts to emerge last year, the Chemical Brothers and Prodigy.

There were two glaring omissions in hip-hop. Missy ``Misdemeanor'' Elliott, considered by many to be the form's most promising arrival in 1997, was overlooked as a new artist contender. Her consolation prize: nominations in the rap-album category for her debut Supa Dupa Fly, and for her rap solo performance on ``The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).''

And Combs, the producer who was omnipresent this year through his own hit album and his contributions to albums by Mase, the Notorious B.I.G., Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Lil' Kim and others, was inexplicably omitted from the producer of the year category. Instead, the academy will choose between Walter Afanasieff, associated with Carey and Celine Dion; Babyface; Cole; gospel-R&B sensation Kirk Franklin; and Keith Thomas, who this year contributed to hit albums by Amy Grant, Vanessa Williams, and Brian McKnight.

In a welcome display of sanity, the Spice Girls were shut out of the nominations.

The year's other teen sensation, Hanson, notched two nominations. In addition to slugging it out in the new-artist competition, they'll put their addictive single ``MMMBop'' up against Cole's ``Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?'', Shawn Colvin's ``Sunny Came Home,'' Sheryl Crow's ``Everyday Is a Winding Road,'' and R. Kelly's ``I Believe I Can Fly'' in record of the year voting.

The Grammy Award ceremony will be televised live by CBS (Channel 3) and will be hosted by Frasier star Kelsey Grammer.
