One last thing: if The ArchAndroid doesn't win for Contemporary R&B album, something is wrong with the world.

don't care too much for the album, but it'd be totally rad if they won.

God. One of the most annoying records I've heard all year. Well.. I guess you indie-hipster kids can unite about this.

Strong? The Black Keys was good, but Vampire Weekend? Arcade Fire? I work at a small indie record store, and when those two are played customers complain and leave. Terrible

Good for you. You keep fighting the good fight against hipsters. These things really matter.

Anyway, Contra was fantastic, hope it wins that if Arcade Fire wins AOTY--which they won't, sadly.

Also, was anyone else mildly disappointed Gaslight Anthem didn't get a nod somewhere? I mean, I definitely wasn't expecting it, but I thought maybe with all the attention they received...oh well.

By the way, full results are here.

God they better win

Edit: Nice to see Band of Horses, Mumford and Sons, Black Keys, Broken Bells, and Vampire Weekend up for nominations also.

Also if Dr. Luke wins for the producer of the year the Gammys should just stop forever.

They'll most likely have to settle for Best Alternative since the AOTY award has basically become a reward for those keeping the barely breathing music business alive with sales. Gaga should've gotten it last year over Taylor Swift, but if they give it to her this year for what isn't even an album I'll completely lose faith. Eminem should get it if only for losing to Steely Dan forever ago when he was up for The Marshall Mathers LP.

Surprised that with all the acclaim they didn't manage to sneak Kanye into this and all the other categories.
