Grammy Nominees 2009!

December 4, 2008 — 3 Comments

Did you know that they changed the way they announce the nominees? I didn’t. Just found out tonight they were doing presentations and stuff, instead of just naming them… didn’t watch, did you? Anyway, I’m not really impressed with the music… Coldplay with Viva la Vida, REALLY? I thought the album was pretty rubbish…

Viva la Vida got 7 nods, including Record, Song and Album of the Year. Really? Lil Wayne apparently has 8 nods, but I can only count 6… so whatever.

Other nominees include… Sara Bareilles with Love Song in the Song of the Year category – it baffles me how she can get a nod, when Regina Spektor has NONE. Jason Mraz is also nominated in this category with I’m Yours, while Duffy and The Jonas Brothers are nominated in the Best New Artist category.

And I’m too lazy to go category by category, so here’s a not-so-tidy list of some of the names in the list…

Pink, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry, Kid Rock, Alison Krauss, John Mayer, Paul McCartney, Eagles, Maroon5, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Sheryl Crow, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Kylie Minogue, Moby, Robyn, Natalie Cole, Josh Groban, Rufus Wainwright, Metallica, Radiohead, LeAnn Rimes, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Juanes, Ximena Sariñana, DLG… etc etc.

Including nominations for the films American Gangster, August Rush, Juno, Mamma Mia!, and Sweeney Todd for Best Compilation Soundtrack. The Dark Knight, Indiana Jones, Iron Man, There Will Be Blood, and Wall-E for Best Score Soundtrack… AND, Wall-E, The Bucket List, Walk Hard the Dewey Cox Story, and a double nomination for Enchanted for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture.

For the long boring list of nominees… lol – you can go here.

  1. Let’s try quick predictions, ok?

    Record of the year,
    1. Viva la Vida – Coldplay (ugh)
    2. Please Read The Letter – Robert Plant & Alison Krauss
    (you know, only based on probability) yay!
    3. Chasing Pavement – Adele …. yay!
    4. Bleeding Love – Leona Lewis
    5. Paper Planes – M.I.A

    Paper Planes (listening to it atm,) is interesting but since they don’t have another nomination, I think it’s the least probable.

    I will be happy with 2, or Adele… even Leona, but PLEASE don’t let it be Coldplay.

    Album of the Year
    1. Coldplay – Viva la Vida (ugh)
    2. Lil Wayne – The Carter III
    (this depends on whether he can win all the other rap nods)
    3. Radiohead – In Rainbows
    (again critics fave, if it wins the other nods)
    4. Robert Plant & Alison Krauss – Raising Sand
    (can you tell I would like this one to win?)
    5. Ne-Yo – Year of the Gentleman

    of all, ne-yo is my least likely to win.

    Song of the Year
    1. Viva la Vida – Coldplay (ugh)
    2. Chasing Pavement – Adele (yay)
    3. I’m Yours – Jason Mraz
    (i’m okay with it too)
    4. American Boy – Estelle Featuring Kanye West
    (i don’t want anything to boost Kanye’s ego)
    5. Love Song – Sara Bareilles

    The least likely to win is Bareilles, just based on nomination numbers – Plus, if Regina Spektor doesn’t have a win, Bareilles doesn’t deserve one. I’m sorry…

    Best New Artist
    1. Adele (yay!)
    2. Duffy
    3. Jonas Brothers
    4. Jazmine Sullivan
    5. Lady Antebellum

    Sorry to say, but this GRAMMY awards is not about country, so don’t expect country to win. If there was going to be country in the Best New Artist, Taylor Swift had better chances.
