Recording Academy President Neil Portnow defended Sunday’s award show amid calls of racism after Beyoncé was snubbed in the top three awards of the night.

“It’s always hard to create objectivity out of something that’s inherently subjective, which is what art and music is about. We do the best we can. We have 84 categories where we recognize all kinds of music, from across all spectrums.”
