You neglected to include the only category I ever remotely find myself interested in:

Quote:
Best Alternative Music Album
(Vocal or Instrumental.)

* Everything That Happens Will Happen Today
David Byrne & Brian Eno
[Yep Roc Records]

* The Open Door
Death Cab For Cutie
[Atlantic]

* Sounds Of The Universe
Depeche Mode
[Capitol]

* Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Phoenix
[Loyaute/Glassnote Records]

* It's Blitz!
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
[DGC Records/Interscope]
The Open Door is an EP. Good job, Grammy folk.

Please excuse me for saying so, Gaffer, but I will vomit when they hand Taylor her award for album of the year.

Because you know she's winning that.

Oh, and U2's got that Rock Album category in the bag. Pretty weak competition.

Best Rock Song is also full of wtf-ery. Snooze-fest this year. But hey, go Lady GaGa!

Really? Because one of the other nominees is nominated for album of the year.

It's really sad that this comes down to record sales. No Net should at least be in the running for the top prize, even if they had no chance winning it again so soon.

And it's sad that Cock Crazy is the song singled out. Unbelievable.

At least Phoenix got a nom, and with that competition could actually win. I could really only see the Yeah Yeah Yeah's being a possibility, and Phoenix has to be the most instantly pleasurable listen out of those.

I know DMB is nominated in both categories - you think that's a sign it'll win Rock because it wont win album of the year? Could be.

I'm going on my gut "Grammys love U2" feeling, although if they loved them that much, they would have more nominations, I guess. I think if they're going to throw U2 their obligatory bone this year, I think it'll be Rock Album.

Considering who else is up for it, I'll be cheering her on. You want to see cock.i.am and MC Pee Pants up there instead? Or Dave Matthews?

Hopefully Gaga and Beyonce cancel each other out.

That's exactly what I think, and I'm pretty sure history shows it to be the tendency.

The only bone they're throwing Shuttlecock is the big middle finger they just gave them with these nominees.

And ironically, Beano gets a nom.

I really, really don 't want to see BEP win - that's the most offensive of the nominees in that category. I don't even think The Fame is that strong an album - I'm really surprised by that nomination.

I just think Ms. Swift, while talented and shiny and cute and whatever, is massively overrated, and you know they're going to give her a bajillion awards.

I actually did put the Alternative album nominees in there but, yeah, I don't know how they come up with some of this shit. The Death Cab thing is pretty strange and I know there's always a lot of discussion about how they determine the "Best New Artist" category. Well, fuckin Silversun Pickups debut album came out over 3 years ago and got some significant play on college radio stations. I don't know how they decided to call them a "New Artist" but, whatever.

Yeah, totally to the Death Cab thing and the Silversun Pickups thing.

Le sigh. I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the fuckery of the Grammys after all this time. I'll still watch because I'm crazy like that.

I'm really hoping Pearl Jam wins for The Fixer over Cock Crazy.

Though I'd be surprised if PJ was there to accept it.

This poses an interesting question, though. If Shuttlecock is asked to perform, do they do Cock Crazy? And do they unleash the remix version on that crowd, just to say Fuck You?

We can only hope.

That Pearl Jam song is probably the only song in the category I'd call "rock." Or, rather, that actually rocks, since that Green Day song is snoozarific.

What's with Hall and Oates getting a nomination for pop song? What is that all about? Sara Smiles? I do believe that was a hit when I was still only two feet tall.
