So for the handful of music lovers that happen to follow the grammys (I know many don't give a poo) ...the nominations were handed out tonight.

I'll do the big 4 categories:

Record of the Year

- Lonely Boy: The Black Keys

-Stronger: Kelly Clarkson

- We Are Young: Fun

- Somebody That I Used To Know: Gotye

- Thinkin Bout You: Frank Ocean

- We Are Never Getting Back Together: Taylor Swift

Album of the Year

- El Camino: The Black Keys

- Some Nights: Fun

-Babel: Mumford & Sons

- Channel Orange: Frank Ocean

- Blunderbuss: Jack White

Song of the Year

- The A Team: Ed Sheeran

Best New Artist

-Alabama Shakes

- Fun.

- Hunter Hayes

- The Lumineers

-Frank Ocean

All the categories: http://www.grammy.com/nominees

Biggest surprises to me was no best new artist nom for Ed Sheeran, Frank Ocean (MUCH deserved) and Miguel getting best song nom (Also much deserved. Awesome album)

Hunter Hayes and whoever the Alabama group is getting nommed over Ed Sheeran. Hahaha.

And Call Me Maybe going for SOTY -_-

Maybe Ed doesn't count towards this year's noms because his album release was fairly late in the US, while A Team released as a single before hand? I dunno...

I think thats the same reason there was nothing for Kendrick Lamar in the rap categories.

Call Me Maybe for song of the year? I thought the Grammy's were respectable?

My dad won a Grammy a while back so I get tickets every year and I get to vote for the nominees. This year was probably one of the worst and least interesting of all time.

I liked channel orange and el camino, neither would even sniff the album of the year in recent years. Funs album is pretty good too, those guys really have some talent.

Sheeran is talented, but in this business, people get bored of just some guy with an acoustic guitar.

It really isn't that fugging hard to right catchy finger picking songs on an acoustic, trust me.

    • The electoral college was designed in a time where slaves were counted as fractions of a vote... even though they didn't have the right to vote.  It was devised in a time where if you weren't a male land owner, you didn't have the right to vote. Some claim it was devised to prevent someone like Trump from becoming president and yet it failed to do so. It treated millions of Americans as if their votes were somehow less equal than other Americans based on antiquated rational used to entice slave states to sign off on the US Constitution.  A Constitution that made it legal to own and sell other humans. To act if the electoral college is anything other than a perversion of the democratic process is to deny reality. In the last 16 years it has enabled two of the least fit candidates in the history of our nation to ascend to the office of POTUS.  Our nation is strong, but there is only so much abuse and neglect even the most powerful country on the planet can endure before it is unable to recover. It is well past time for the EC to be done away with.
