It can't really compare to the Oscars, because at least with movies, there can be a fairly common consensus on what makes a film award-worthy. Things like screenplays, cinematography, directing, acting and visual effects can all be quantitatively measured in some way.
Music is so vast and engrossing that it's nearly impossible to pick out the best of the best. A group or artist can excel in their genre, but lack any kind of overall appeal. The opposite can be true too. Also, personal taste plays a much larger part in the appeal of music than that of movies. It's also so argumentative; as well as discouraging and frustrating.
The Grammy's are, in my opinion, the most meaningless of all awards shows. Unless they could break awards down into each, prospective genre, it will always be absurd.
what about the Tony's? maybe those just suck more but are more meaningful.
i put it on after Rome to help me fall asleep and woke up to Christina Aguliera singing something that sounded like the vocals to The Great Gig in The Sky
