  • Short Form Video!

  • Best Packaging!

  • Best Packaging!, Best Alternative Music Album!
    . I hope see them Perform in Grammy..!

  • Clearly “Short Form Music Video” belongs to them.

  • If anybody other than Weird Al or Radiohead wins Best Short Form Video I’d be disappointed/confused. (Except maybe OK Go, but even then if we’re being honest the video isn’t that great compared to their previous work)

  • Gentlemen, these are the Grammies Awards; they won’t win anything.

    But seriously, best packaging most likely.

  • The Grammies are awful as it is, but I think Radiohead have their best chance in short form video. The other categories have entries with either more name recognition (packaging) or general popularity (the rest).

  • And the Grammy for overpriced concert tickets goes to….

  • Lotus Flower has to win best video. Best “rock” song and “rock” performance though? Not so sure

  • Ditto on Brent’s comment. I’m going to sober expectations and go with what I KNOW will be the results:

    Best Rock Performance – Every Teardrop…Coldplay (Brian Eno produced and backed, mass-produced mainstream monkey grub. Feb. 2013 Mylo Whatevero will win 6 awards and we’ll be puking out guts out)

    Best Alt. Album – Torches, Foster the People (their songs have infested every avenue of promotion possible (unfortunately), commericials, radiowaves, tv shows, etc.)
    It’s theirs for the taking.

    Best Packaging – The King of Limbs (I’ve seen The Promise, but admittedly haven’t even seen the others. At any rate, This is one prize Donwood and Yorke should take, especially with the paperboy approach to hype it, very different, fan-friendly, personable and artsy.)

    Best Rock Song – Walk, Foo Fighters (Because they can’t do no wrong anymore…apparently)

    Best Short Form Video – Adele (come on, there are only a couple other songs I hear on the radio more then Adele’s (sorry to her fans) god-awful “hit”. That’s a steal for sure. If Thom’s dance act somehow takes it, it’s purely off of novelty and not art. Basically the same reason Wierd Al would win it.)

    I must say though (and say what you will) I do enjoy seeing The Decemberists on there as well as Bon Iver. So I have a couple other artists in the running. And I hope Radiohead play again this year like in 2009. Even if just Thom and Jonny show up to do Give Up the Ghost.

  • Apologize on the Brent comment, that was for the Article “King of Limbs not the King of 2011 Polls. Same applies here…sort of. 🙂
