History?[edit]

I think we should have a section on the history of the Latin Grammys (just basic background info), how it got started, important milestones, etc --Alextwa (talk) 16:06, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Country[edit]

In the infobox it says USA for country. The Latin Grammys includes the US, Latin american countries, spain and portugal (countries that speak spanish and portuguese). Should this part of the infobox be changed? --Alextwa (talk) 15:50, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Awards by country of origin[edit]

I was looking at the chart for awards by country of origin and the numbers for brazil do not seem accurate. There is a Brazilian field at the Latin Grammys and it has quite a few awards. Most of the winners in that field seem to be brazilian. --Alextwa (talk) 23:43, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

The picture on the main page is of a Grammy Award. A Latin Grammy does not look the same. There is only one difference which is the color of the base. A Grammy has a black base and a Latin Grammy has a redish base. Could we possibly use a picture of an actual Latin Grammy?

Best engineered album[edit]

Best Engineered album is awarded to the engineer(s) and mastering Engineer(s) at the Latin Grammy Awards. The only way the artist can receive that award is if he or she is an engineer or mastering engineer. Thats how it works at the Latin Grammy Awards. The award is an award dealing with the crafting of an album.

Cleaned Up & Updated[edit]

OK fellas, I cleaned Up this page on the Latin GRAMMY awards to be better organized and more relevant following last nights show. Can someone continue updating that chart with the wins by nation? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.237.214.244 (talk) 20:47, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Shakira did NOT win 5 Awards in 2006: PLEASE STOP[edit]

She won 4. She was not an engineer on her album. Best Engineered Album is awarded to the ENGINEERS!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.237.214.244 (talk) 19:58, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Someone reverted the edit about Shakira. Again SHE DID NOT WIN 5 IN 2006!!!!! IS SHE AN ENGINEER? NO SHE ISN'T SO STOP RIGHT NOW. GO TO THE LATIN GRAMMY WEBSITE AND SEARCH HER NAME. SHE DID NOT WIN 5 IN 2006. SHE DID NOT RECIEVE BEST ENGINEERED ALBUM

Neutrality[edit]

I don't think COUNTRIES compete on this event, but individuals artist and musical groups. I think the real winners should be placed instead of the missinforming data about countries. --F3rn4nd0 21:32, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

I fixed the chart of countries[edit]

There was a mixtape between Gutamela and Peru, data was inverted (Peru won in 2002 and 2005 - Peru Negro and Gian Marco, Guatamela in 2001 and 2006, with Ricardo Arjona)

Univision and Telemundo are European, that's it!!![edit]

"It was the first primarily Spanish language prime-time program carried on an American network television". (Great paragraph, it deserves a Pullitzer) But... So what the funk Univision and Telemundo are? European? --Ornitorrinco 15:55, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Something doesn't add up...

You say it was created and shown on air for the first time in 2000, but then you go on to say that the 7TH ANNUAL show was in 2006. Please explain.

1st: 2000, 2nd: 2001; 3rd: 2002... Someone needs to learn math. 68.111.54.121 03:35, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

The "Latin" Controversy[edit]

The Latin Grammys represent works of achievement in music of Spanish and Portuguese speaking artists. However, the term "latin" indicates the language that originated in ancient Rome. When speaking of latin peoples, it refers to people of countries who speak a language that is derived from the original latin. Therefore all Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese speaking artists and countries should be included in the Latin Grammys. "Latin" refers to all people with origins to any of the romance languages listed above. The "Latin Grammy Awards" should come to include Italian and French artists because they too are "Latin" If Italian and French cannot be included, then it has been suggested that the name be changed to "Hispanic Grammy Awards". The misuse of the term "latin" is upsetting to some and has become a rising issue for debate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.120.243.154 (talk) 00:22, August 26, 2007 (UTC)

This talk page isn't the place to debate the issue. If, however, you have suggestions of reliable sources to meet Wikipedia's standards for verifiability to show that this is a notable controversy, then the discussion becomes germane to the purpose of an article Talk page.

Latin America is the name of the Spanish speaking part of the Americas and Brazil. It is for historical reasons, not semantics. 68.111.54.121 03:38, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
And what about Amérique Latine (Latin America in English) by Napoleon III. Thats includes French speaking as well. T Rex | talk 23:55, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

re[edit]

It explains this issue here:

For some reason, when they created the award, they apparently decided to call it "Latin", while only accepting works done in Spanish and Portuguese, which are only two of a multitude of Latin languages. By definition, since it is the most "direct descendant" of the Latin language today, no language can be more "Latin" than Italian. I believe this misconception was created with the erroneous use of the term "Latino" in the United States. An Italian, a French or a Romanian, are Latins too. In fact they were Latins far before the Americas were even found. 194.79.73.25 (talk) 19:53, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
