There are certainly power structures in place that favor somewhat conventional white artists winning these types of awards. However, I think it’s usually really silly and arrogant to claim that one piece of art is objectively better than another. Neither 25 or Lemonade move me , but that doesn’t mean they suck. These awards should be recognized for what they are: a reflection of the preferences of a certain (primarily white and old) audience; not an objective judgment of true quality. Treating them as such only gives more power to that unrepresentative group.
