So the nominations came out for the Grammys:
http://www.grammy.com/nominees

I think there are some good choices mixed in with some questionable ones (Call Me Maybe, Fun., Sexy and I Know It) I'm rooting for The Black Keys and Florence and The Machine. I'm surprised Florence and The Machine didn't get a Album nod. I'd give it to Florence easily over Fun.

I get into award shows, but I have never gotten into the Grammys. I think it's hard to determine which music is "The Best" because I find it to be highly subjective (at least more so than visual media).

I think Florence was a bit robbed. Taylor Swift and Fun over them? Okay, then...

The Grammys nominated crappie music every year IMO

Kelly Clarkson got 4 nominations! The most she has ever received and she is the most nominated female this year. What an amazing feat considering she is 10 years into her career in a genre that is all about the newest and hottest thing. She really only has a shot at winning 1 of them but so what, it really is an honor to be nominated considering all the choices available.

How did The Hunger Games soundtrack not get nominated in its category? Say what you will about the movie, but the soundtrack that T-bone Burnett compiled was absolutely brilliant and fitting in the best possible way.

I don't remember ever not rooting for at least ONE nominee in the Album of the Year category. The nominees:

The Black Keys - El Camino
Fun. - Some Nights
Mumford and Sons - Babel
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
Jack White - Blunderbuss

If I went to a party and those five CD's were in rotation on somebody's CD player, I would figure that I had got the address wrong and would leave. BLECH!

I would rather listen to Mr. Snubbed:

Justin Bieber's Grammy Snub: Why Did 'Believe' Get Overlooked? (http://www.billboard.com/news/justin-bieber-s-grammy-snub-why-did-believe-1008041642.story#/news/justin-bieber-s-grammy-snub-why-did-believe-1008041642.story)

I love fun! Besides the two big hits, Stars is fantastic!

I liked Bieber's album too. He gets a bad rap. As Long As You Me is an excellent song.

But whatever. Whoever is the oldest amongst the nominees, they will win.

The Arcade Fire one and one of the Taylor Swift ones?

I for one couldn't be more thrilled that Bieber didn't get nominated :D Though there were a few nominations this year that confused me. Carrie Underwood not getting a nod for best country album really ticked me off.

Yes, which is part of why I'm perplexed that the album itself wasn't nominated when those were just two of many very good songs on it (Maroon 5 and The Civil Wars both had just fantastic songs on there as well!)

I really want Arcade Fire to win for Abraham's Daughter. I love that song to pieces, it's the first thing I play every time I go work out.

I am not sure if Carrie has ever received a country album nomination, now that I think about it. Really odd considering she has won a ton of Grammy's in the country vocal categories.

I must be the only person who's thrilled that Carly Rae Jepson got nominated. :shuffle:

I have liked Carly since her Canadian Idol days.

No you are not: I don't know why some folks think that catchy pop tunes loved/liked by millions don't merit awards consideration. If there was a "song of the summer"--especially in an Olympic year--this was it. I'm glad she was nominated.

I'm #4. Maybe we should start a Carly Rae thread! :D
