Grammy Nominations Announced | Yay to Scissor Sisters
CONGRATULATIONS TO SCISSOR SISTERS! (nominated in the ‘Best Dance Recording’ category)
‘With 10 nominations, including one for best new artist, Kanye West leads the field for the 47th annual Grammy Awards. Other multiple nominees include Alicia Keys and Usher, who are tied with eight, the late Ray Charles with seven, Green Day with six, and Norah Jones, Loretta Lynn, Prince and engineer Al Schmitt each with five.
The prestigious album of the year will be decided between West’s “The College Dropout” (Roc A Fella), Charles’ “Genius Loves Company” (Concord), Usher’s “Confessions” (Arista), Keys’ “The Diary of Alicia Keys” (J) and Green Day’s “American Idiot” (Reprise).’
Ultragrrrl (who I saw on some VH1 show that was playing on a TV inside chickpea Saturday night) is freaking out because the Killers got nominated for three grammys. She forgot to mention that Franz Ferdinand were also nominated for at least three.
Lastly, Jake Novak lists the Top 5 Least Popular Grammy Awards.
I would like to say congrats to Bjork for breaking through to the other side (again and again) (nominated in ‘alternative’ and ‘mainstream?’ categories), Prince for getting nominated even though no one realized he put out an album, and the academy for admitting that Evanescence belongs in the same category as Hoobastank,
Also congrats to Modest Mouse, Franz Ferdinand, PJ Harvey, Wilco, The Beastie Boys, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, The Shins (nominated for ‘best recording package’ whatever that means), and Scissor Sisters(one more time).
