Full Grammy list to discuss

In addition to U2, there are some really great nominations this year. What happened? I mean, Franz, The Killers, Coldplay, GORILLAZ? Who abducted the academy and replaced them with cool people? Because whoever it is will be receiving a big fruit basket from me. And maybe a Ferrari.

I was also glad to see Arcade Fire in the mix too. Really wish BRMC's album had gotten more attention though.

As always, the Grammys is my SuperBowl, so can't wait for the show!!

As much as I hate Mariah Carey, I seriously doubt she'll be shut out.

i do... she's going against kanye west in most of her major categories.

the critics loooove them some kanye... as they should.

maybe she'll win the r&b vocal performance rather than alicia keys... but i can't see mariah winning any of the major categories.

I think she'll get the R&B vocal one. That ballad of hers was a huge hit this year.

Song Of The Year is very interesting, with both U2 and Springsteen up for it. I honestly can't decide who would get that one.

I like your list Headache, although I'd love to see U2 pull in an upset or two. But your list seems to me the most logical. However, logic and "voting" - especially at the Grammy awards - rarely come together.

As for Mariah, I think if she does lose to West in most categories, she'll take the female vocal. Clarkson offers competition, but I think Carey will get the nod there.

Meh...if it was Coldplay vs. U2 for Album or Song Of The Year, I'd think we'd see more hype over it, but not for Best Rock Album. Sometimes that award isn't even presented on-air.

The biggest problem is the new artist category: Where the heck is Arcade Fire?! They nominate Fall Out Boy and Keane, but not Arcade Fire. Pathetic. Arcade Fire should have been up and down the nominations.

U2-wise, I think their best shot by far is best rock album. I think they have a good chance of being beat in all the other categories.

As for the Coldplay issue - their new album got a somewhat lukewarm reception. I doubt it will win anything.

Most of this list is just painfully, shockingly, perversely absurd. How the FUCK is The Woods not even nominated for the Best Alternative Album award????

And, frankly, I find the fact that U2 (and that's not even mentioning Mariah and co....) is nominated for Album of the Year laughable. I mean, I don't have too much against How to Dismantle..., but Jesus Fucking Christ...there were like 27 albums about 27 times better than it released in the last year, you know...?

Well, maybe you don't. It's just my opinion. I definitely think that "Sometimes..." should win its awards, although I can't say that it will. I can't deny that it's one of my favorite U2 songs of all time and that, without a doubt, I think it's one of the best I've heard over the last year.

FUCK THE GRAMMYS, either way. I guess I'll be ignoring them from here on out for the sixth year in a row.
