Jethro Tull but also I think Frank Zappa for "Jazz from hell." Also, Yes for the track cinema. Not sure what else.

Do you think that Prog should get more representation in the Grammys.

I once again am going to get off topic, but I personally am always suspicious towards those who get all the air, numerous prizes in branches of art like rock music or fiction literature. My favourite weird/horror writer Jean Ray is titled European Poe - but the only prize he has got in his life was 
Le Prix Littéraire des Bouquinistes des Quais de Paris 
he was awarded with on the sunset of his life, several years before his death. 

Gentle Giant are only finally put in the Hall Of Fame of their native provincial city of Portsmouth. Even Freddie Mercury does not have a memorial in the UK. 

Prog rock and casual life exist in the parallel rarely-colliding planes of being.

No, the grammies are a joke anyway, it's the mainstream music industry patting themselves on the back, feeling self-important. 

Just look at the case of Jethro Tull winning in 1989, for an album released in 1987, for the heavy metal category. So there goes any credibility thrown out the window.

Why did I ask this anyways, I know that in the grammys chose the most popular album or artist always to  wins because we cant possible hurt pop fan 573,559,702 world view on who are the best artist and make them listen to stuff that is not in their comfort zone.

Similarly, there's a Ukrainian rock band Okean Elzy aka OE (Ocean Of Elza, that is). Like ten or so years ago they won some Ukrainian music award in the category of best pop band, which their leader commented with an evident taken offence. 

I remember of the Oscar for best foreign movie that came to the Soviet "Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears" in times of tension over Afghanistan in the 1980s. Not that I protest against - but I'd say, there were no less than 50 Soviet movies that undeservedly never got such a recognition. There was for example a great Soviet comedy about a naive kind-hearted retired private soldier that travels all over the country in search of an ideal wife. That comedy was absolutely Italian in its spirit and was not that far from Fellini's style. But the Oscar was given as a sort of political gesture in the early 1980s...

Steely Dan got the 2000 best album award for Two Against Nature.

They catch on fast, these Grammy guys.

Regarding songs, I remember Andy Summers getting one for an instrumental on Zenyotta Mondatta in the early 80s. But, there is an argument as to whether it is considered Prog. There are obvious similarities in style between Fripp and Summers, and they collaborated a lot, but here, one is generally considered Prog and the other not (all things black and white, no gray area). I think it is somewhat Proggy, so that’s why I mention it (Prog by degree perspective).

Steven Wilson has been nominated several times (I think) but not sure he has won one.

Spot on. And don't get me started on the Turner Prize or the Booker Prize.

Exactly. And who cares about stupid award shows anyway?

I think Rush won a Grammy for YYZ, let me check...

dang, it was nominated for best rock instrumental but lost to Behind My Camel by The Police....I love The Police but that doesn't make any sense, Behind My Camel is a bit of a snooze compared to YYZ.
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)
