Yep, still no reason to watch the Gammys.

Thanks for confirmation.

Quick question: was Magic released after the nomination cutoff? Just wondering.

You don't want to watch Amy Winehouse pass out in the middle of her acceptance speech?

Really. If it's not the most dreadful list I've ever seen, it's way up there.

As I understand it, the vinyl was released a week earlier than the CD so that it qualified for the Grammy award nominations this year.

fair enough... There's something to be said about watching a train wreck in real time though...

I hope Vince Gill wins, that guy needs to win more awards imo...

And nothing?

That's disappointing.

Meanwhile I think three people have picked up the Foos new release and it's nominated. Just another reason why the Grammys don't make any sense.

In a surprise, Bruce Springsteen -- whose critically praised "Magic" was expected to do well -- didn't get an album of the year nomination.
He got four nominations in the lesser rock categories.

He was robbed in 2002, he was robbed in 1984, and now he can't even get a nomination.

I didn't even think of that. He's too "old" I guess, and Hey Delilah is superior songwriting.

What are you talking about? The Umbrella song was nominated, that’s hip, right?

ella… ellla…

I predict next year Soulja Boy will win Single Of The Year

If he had won the award previously, I would've understood it a bit more, but he has never won Album Of The Year. What a joke. I mean, Vince Gill? Come on.
