BECAUSE THEY PAID FOR IT
Mi2N reports that BMG received 77 Grammy nominations, spread fairly evenly over all genres...

You know why? They paid for it... Each year, the major labels decide whether they should give TONS of money to NARAS or not, depending on the success of their releases that year. Usually the nominations heavily favor 1 or 2 particular labels, b/c those are the ones that gave the most $$. It's all politics...
Of course, BMG is also a HUGE corporation, comprised of over 40 smaller record labels, and there are only 5 major labels left...
