If it weren't for the rock categories, it'd be sunk. And even then, some are a bit questionable. How did Evanescence get so many nominations?

There are too many categories. What's the difference between a "song" and a "performance"?

Also, I thought I heard a few years ago that they were adding a category for video game soundtracks, but I didn't see it listed. Did I hear wrong?

Um, "They're a great band" would be my guess.

And how is there no metal in the metal category?

I am reminded once again why I never watch awards shows.

Great band my ass. They're Linkin Park meets No Doubt by way of the Go-Go's.

They're better than 50 Cent and Eminem and Nelly and Beyonce and all of those so called "artists".

Maybe so. There's still a long way to go until the good part of things starts up though.

A long way to go, Raz. Music degenerated. It's all of our duty to make it evolve.

Have I possibly found heaven? People who don't wear Evanescence shirts (when they're not wearing Manson shirts) and thing that they are the best band on earth?!

I'm terribly disappointed. Only 105 categories this year?!

Apparently I'm one of the few that likes Evanescence on here. Granted they are a bit of a Lacuna Coil ripoff, and granted they did have the Linkin Park clone featured on their main song...

Ah hell

They're still a ways above most of what is called music today, but to be nominated as many times as they were is a bit ludicrous.

I like Evanescence, but I think 5 nominations is too many. They had ONE huge hit this year.

I'd still rather see them win then most of the other "artist" these days. As always the Grammy's are a "who's who of pop culture"...no real talent need apply!

It be nice to see some who can really sing actually win something. At least Evanescence has vocal and writing talent. Gotta give them credit for that.

I'd still much rather shy away from the US music industry.

Just noticed that Queens of the Stone Age made the list. Not that they actually have a chance of winning. I can't believe Metallica made it on the list with St. Anger. That CD was the biggest load of shit I've seen in a long time.

QOTSA certainly deserves to win, but you're right, they probably won't. I've noticed that the winner is usually the least deserving out of all the nominees.

Actually, I rather liked Load/Reload. I think it's better than most of their earlier stuff, although I do enjoy listening to all of it. It's after Reload I think they started going to shit really fast.

The artist is awarded based on their popularity with the preteen crowd. Which means the pop and (c)rap 'artists' get all the attention. Grammys are a joke.

these people have no idea about music, it's about time they let us overhere at the music forum handle the awards

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.
