The Not Grammys Experience

John Waters,Grammy Nominee !This isn't The Music Experience but we should glance toward the Grammy nominees.Among the "record"and "song"of the year categories,which are kind of like the actress and actor to "album of the year"'s best picture --it's a tortured analogy,just go with it --  my votes would go,I can't do it.No preferences.I like most of them but,frankly,they all remind me of other better songs especially "Chandelier"which is like "Umbrella: The Sequel"and "Fancy"which is like a weaker and more annoying Stefani track.Plus I thought "All About the Bass"was a two-for-one Novelty Song download deal with Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda"-- I had no idea it wasrespectablemusic!What would the Best Picture equivalent be at the Oscars?亚博主页I can't even imagine...

But,again,not a music guy.Outside of movie music as an extension of a my cinephilia and musical theater as an extension of my inner soul (Proud Show Queen and I don't care who knows it...Haters gonna hate hate hate.Shake it off!) I don't think about music that much except to think "What should i put on my gym playlist to help motivate the exercize that I'm not going to do no matter how great the playlist is?!?"

Actors or Directors among the Grammy-nominated this year

  • James Franco(Spoken Word nominee for "Actors Anonymous")
    I think it's worth noting that Franco has yet to win a major prize beyond a Golden Globe but he has now been nominated for the Oscar,the Emmy,and the Grammy Clearly has his sights set on a Tony at some point,too.
  • Cheyenne Jackson(Principal Soloist for San Francisco Symphony's version of "West Side Story"nominated for Musical Theater Album)_
  • Neil Patrick Harris(Principal Soloist for "Hedwig"revival nominated for Musical Theater Album)
  • John Waters(Spoken Word nominee for "Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America")

Varietytalks to Scarlett Johansson about Woody Allen and like Cate Blanchett she's level-headed about it

Ongoing Controversy
Felicia Dayis upset,like we are,aboutthe casting of a white actress as Tiger Lilythough I'm linking up to this because even in the pro-ethnic casting majority people keep perpetuating the notion that it would be a risk and no such famous actors exist because they don't get the opportunities and in all of this so few people ever mention the fact that thereISa Native American actress who is beautiful,not completely obscure,and the right age for itwho has already carried a movie.How can people have forgotten Q'Orianka Kilcher fromThe New Worldthis quickly?She is 24 and talented and beautiful andthis is ridiculous.Obviously I missed my calling to be a casting director and slap sense into everyone.

I had already posted this on Twitter but just to remind everyone this is the movie she starred in and this is what she looks like now.

Q'Orianka in The New World (2005) and last year at an Oscar Party

Honestly at seven films down I'm kind of ready for Jackman to do something else,too.As long as he keeps taking his clothes off,of course!But the bulging vein Wolverine look has gotten to be too much.Smaller and sleeker but still naked - that's what he should do.
