NEW YORK (AP) - Though Adele's win for album of the year at last year's Grammys wasn't a complete surprise, it marked another loss for Beyonce in the show's major category.

The Recording Academy was heavily criticized for not rewarding "Lemonade," an album that moved the needle and dominated pop culture in different ways than Adele's colossal sales.

Critics felt the Academy failed to recognize the artistic elements of an R&B-based album, in the same ways they have passed over albums by Kanye West, Eminem and Mariah Carey for projects by rock, country and jazz artists.

But Sunday's Grammys are almost guaranteeing this year is different. Most of the album, song and record of the year nominees are rap, R&B and Latino artists, including Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Luis Fonsi and Childish Gambino.

The final Friday of November was a beautiful one for northern California with plentiful sunshine, warmer than average temperatures and weaker wind. We can expect plenty of sunshine and continued mild weather this weekend.
