Minus the fact that he wasn't nominated for Album of the Year. On another note, what a terrible selection for Album of the Year. Arcade Fire or Eminem should win. What a fucking joke if Lady Gaga wins on what is realistically an EP.

Congrats to AF. Looks like the others were Gaga, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum, and some random fucker named Eminem.

Yeah...

Sadly, this could be the only album worth the nomination.

There has to be at least one in every category.

That said, they won't win.

I feel like the grammy's have lost their credibility, even though I guess the reason why more popular awards nominations read like MTV award nominations has more to do with the state of popular music itself.

I don't know if I'm just getting too old or if it really is just fucking awful. Either way, dnw.

I'm assuming Kanye wasn't included here because his album was released too late in the year?
Anyway...Big props to Arcade Fire for getting into the AOTY category. All the other albums suck, real talk.
