The Grammy Awards are not, as a general rule, anything that merits the attention of The Film Experience but it doesn't mean we can't discuss them briefly as an intermission between Oscariffic posting. Obviously I'm rooting for "Call Me Maybe" THE song of the year and indefatigably fun. And you already know that I wish Record of the Year Nominee "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" was the title of a movie.
But given this blog's metier, we have to focus on movie-related categories first and foremost.
BEST COMPILATION SOUNDTRACK FOR VISUAL MEDIA
The Descendants (Various Artists)
Marley (Bob Marley & The Wailers)
Midnight in Paris (Various Artists)
The Muppets (Various Artists)
Rock of Ages (Various Artists)
I've never understood quite what people saw in The Descendants soundtrack (ooh, Hawaiian music. How obvious!) but I love the nomination for its fellow 2011 Best Picture nominee Midnight in Paris.
QUESTION: Will this be the only award outside of the Razzies that the Rock of Ages film adaptation receives?
SNUBBED: Excuse me but where the hell is the Smash CD?
MORE MUSIC after the jump...
