Nominees are selected through a voting process with members and record companies submitting entries. Submissions are then screened for eligibility and category placement by 150 experts in various fields, to ensure that entered recordings meet specific qualifications. The Academy’s voting members, all involved in the creative and technical processes of recording, then participate in (1) the nominating process that determines the five finalists in each category; and (2) the final voting process which determines the GRAMMY winners.
This is the 50th Anniversary year for the Grammy organization, and the GRAMMY Award show will take place on February 10, 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. USA.
