Well, I certainly don’t keep track with Grammy Awards anymore, so should I be adding the event to my Award Season calendar? Or should I just wait to run into it when it’s airing?

Grammy nominations were announced last night, and I’m glad I’m not the only one wondering why are the Grammy nominations so similar to MTV, the AMA and every other music-related award show? Just take a look at the General Field nominees to see what I’m talking about.

Reuters is reporting that Jay Chou has been cast as Kato (previously played by Bruce Lee on the series) on the new movie adaptation of the Green Hornet written and played by none other than Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express, Funny People) – really? LOL

I said it! Asian invasion!!! xD

The Lima Film Festival began today!

VMA Nominees Announced!
Normally, I would’ve done a different post for this, but I’ve lost my interest on MTV.
Can’t blame me, can you?

Womanizer… video of the year? – oh the sadness. Alongside Spears~~~ Eminem with We Made You, Beyonce with Single Ladies, Kanye and Lady Gaga. – REALLY??? I should really make a Look Back on 2008 Videos, I mean… there should be better, MUCH BETTER music videos than those.

Lady Gaga for the win, even though I didn’t really dig any of it. <- that’s a prediction.

Grammy 2009 Winners

February 8, 2009 — 4 Comments

Did you watch the Grammy tonight? I mean, not like I had a choice to watch BAFTAs instead, but I did watch the Grammy on an off, while having dinner and chatting on MSN.

Woooooo! I actually rock~ lol, my wishlist of winners wasn’t too far off on the General Field categories. Quickie predictions weren’t that bad~~

My only pet-peeve miss was Coldplay winning Song of the Year, instead of Adele. I mean, DUH! Adele with Sugarland was pretty amazing, I must confess that I never really paid any attention to Sugarland (I saw them on some Billboard award, so I didn’t think anything of them) – but they were GOOD.

Coldplay also did a better performance than I expected, since they were doing a bit of a crappy job on live performances. Must be the mic, I tell ya. Radiohead also did pretty good~~

Miley with Taylor Swift? Like ZOMG! Miley totally made herself looked SO AWFUL next to Swift. Swift is 19, looks younger, writes and sings better. Miley is 16, looks 25 and sings like she smokes a packet a day. That’s all I have to say. And… Jonas Brothers? Aren’t two of them like in their early 20s? Shouldn’t they have changed their voices by now?

Adele won 2!!! As Sugarland did… Alisson Krauss with Robert Plant won 5 – including Record of the Year and Album of the Year.

All the LONG list of winners, here.

, but need to share this. LOL’

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.
