Are the Grammys so screwed up that they're not even worth talking about? Fuk it...
The Dixie Chicks won five top awards
Not suprisingly, the headlines look like this today:crazy chicks. Gnarls Barkley fan Bob Lefsetz is not amused though:
......you take the most left-leaning act in recent memory, with an album that half the country REFUSES to listen to, and you give them ALL the awards. Smart.Even if Gnarls Barkley didn't win the award they should have won, at least they were still nominated - not to mention they won "Best Urban/Alternative Performance" AND "Best Alternative Music Album" (AND got to perform).

.....I heard 'Crazy' for the first time a block from my house. I RAN from the garage into the house to download it. I streamed 'Not Ready To Make Nice' (Dixie Chicks) once on my computer, and I haven't played it again SINCE!
TV on the Radio’s widely acclaimed Return to Cookie Mountain didn’t even get nominated. Nor did Final Fantasy’s He Poos Clouds. The song “Jesus! Take the Wheel!” got three nominations, two wins.TV on the Radio didn't win any indie Plug Awards either - the major label signees weren't even eligible! Neither was Gnarls Barkley.
