Heading into the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, there was hope in the air that the Recording Academy would turn things around and fix some of their weaknesses from the past. The nominations in the hip-hop awards were better than they'd been in years, and the Academy announced that they had formed a task force on diversity and inclusion to help fix a historical lack of female representation.
The awards show itself was a mixed bag. The night started off strongly with onstage appearances that ranged from Young Thug to Michelle Obama. But there were also sore spots, like the fact that it took until the end of the night for anyone to discuss 21 Savage's ICE detainment (shout out to Ludwig Göransson for taking time out of his acceptance speech to mention his name). To make sense of it all, the Complex staff has put together a list of the best (and worst) moments from the 2019 Grammys.
