    Diversity how?

    Maybe diversity’s the wrong word. How about breadth and depth? I just went and looked at the nominees again. Excluding instrumental, there’s a whopping 10 artists (duos count as 1) representing 5 categories.

    Award shows generally aren’t known for depth but I get your meaning.
