BRIT award bias?Few PoC win + Sony acts take 2/3+ awards after Sony boss becomes chair of BRITs



After this year's BRIT awards Sony Music pasted across their website and social media headlines like "Sony Music dominates Brit awards with record making success". But look a little closer and it's no mystery why over two-thirds of acts who took home awards were Sony Music artists.
The new chairperson of the BRIT Awards, who oversaw such record breaking success for Sony Music? None other than Chairman and CEO of Sony Music UK and Ireland, Jason Iley.

Sony artists won 9 out of a possible 13 BRIT Awards for this year. For British acts, Best British Album and Best Male Solo Artist went to the late David Bowie, BRIT critics choice and British Breakthrough act went to Rag’N’Bone, BRIT Icon for Robbie Williams, British Single win for Little Mix, and One Direction won British Artist Video Of The Year. British Global success went to Adele again, though she is under Sony Music in the US not the UK.
