Spacek is perhaps one of my favorite nominees ever in this category. A much deserved nomination for sure, but I cannot imagine a performance from a straight up blood drenched teenage horror movie like Carrie was ever getting an Oscar nomination today.April 8, 2016 at 5:03 am #662691

I am late to the game. but is is odd that the worst of her single attempts in the past year is the one that blows up and hits #1. I am a big Rihanna fan, but “Work” makes me want vomit. What an atrocious song.April 8, 2016 at 4:51 am #662688
When she wins two Album of the Year Grammys. Oh wait…..
Seriously. I think most in the industry view Swift as a serious and talente artist, which she is. However, as mentioned on here, every artist has their haters, so it comes with the terrority. But I tend to believe that her legacy will speak for itself.March 1, 2016 at 5:12 am #457903
Thanks to both Tom and Babypook for supporting the project! I am down to the last 10 days of the Kickstarter campaign and could definitely use help spreading the word! So, if your a fan of the 80’s slasher era, please check it out!
I have a new promo video for the project:
Thanks!February 19, 2016 at 10:25 am #416809
Except 1989 was a COMPLETE abandonment of her country roots. Yes, her albums progressively got more “pop.” but there still were definite country elements to them which appealed to her original fanbase. She risked losing at least some of her country fanbase with 1989, which still itself really sounds nothing like Red, as even as pop inflluenced as it was.
In contrast, 21 and 25 are very similary albums both thematically and sonically; it’s not secret she played it safe, which is fine because it worked for her in terms of sales, etc. Whether she wins AOTY for it has yet to be seen, but I do think alternatives will emerge.February 19, 2016 at 8:53 am #416807
Yeah. At least Taylor Swift won her two AOTY Grammys for albums that were very different from each other. Like her or not 1989 was a big risk for her. Adele has been pretty much giving us the exact same album since she came on the scene. That isn’t diminishing her talent at all, but it would be nice of she would have taken some risks with 25.February 19, 2016 at 4:57 am #416804
I think Bowie is going to offer her some competition.February 19, 2016 at 4:57 am #416729
No. PLENTY of black artists have won Grammys, and YES, even in the General Field including THIS YEAR so please explain how #GrammysSoWhite?? Do I need to list all the black artists who have won in the General Field?? It seems some want to dismiss this fact just because these artists didn’t win for the genre of music they wanted them to. But, the fact remains that black artists have been awarded heavily by the Grammys. And really, a Grammy win is a Grammy win–very rarely is it mentioned what category an artist won a Grammy for–just the fact that they are a Grammy winner.
Just because, as an overal voting committee, they may not fully embrace hip hop or urban music in the General Field (which I am pretty sure what this thread was getting at) does NOT make them racist. Eminem, as acclaimed as he is, have never won in the General Field.November 29, 2015 at 1:34 pm #414122
Nicki Minaj?!?! You’ve got to be frickin’ kidding me. TIME must be desperate for potential nominees if they are considering that twat as a Person of the Year. The local dog catcher would be a better choice.October 24, 2015 at 7:56 am #434336
I actually saw Misery last night! My first broadway show and I came to NYC specifically to see it.
It was good–judging by the audience reaction, I think it works. It follows the film script pretty closely. Bruce Willis was serviceable. I don’t think he really brought anything to the role that a dozen other actors could not have. Metcalf, on the other hand, was amazing I thought. She plays the role differently then Bates in the sense that she doesn’t play up the whole “innocent, sweet thing” in the beginning like Bates did if that makes sense. She goes for bat shit crazy right of the bat. The climatic showdown between the two could have been handled more effectively, but I really enjoyed the show. Also, got to say HI to Metcalf, as she walked RIGHT in front of me after the play.
The Tonys are me least favorite awards–I am not at all familiar with them, so I am not sure of this is the tyoe of role they would go for. But I think Metcalf easily does enough to be considered.October 6, 2015 at 7:46 am #339757
I love the show. Anyone who is a fan of the 80’s slasher golden era should absolutely be into this. I love that it doesn’t play it safe and isn’t trying to be politically correct. It’s a slasher television series for godsake. What is interesting is that the Niecy Nash character is the smartest one of the bunch, telling the would be victims not to go upstais, etc. At least it is breaking the slasher cliche there. Love Emma Roberts, but feel Jamie Lee Curtis needs to be given more to do. Hopefully she is as the season progresses.September 21, 2015 at 7:13 am #552497
I really, really, really wish Emmy voters would take notice of this show. I strongly believe RuPaul should have at least two Emmy’s by now for Outstanding Reality Show Host.September 21, 2015 at 6:56 am #361770
The show really lacked energy this year.
I am THRILLED with the Game of Thrones wins, inlcuding Drama Series. Great to see a genre show finally recognized.
Viola winning was inevitable, but I am thrilled for her. She really elevates that show tremendously.
The WORST win of the night was Bill Murray’s blah performance winning over Finn Wittrock, who stole the entire season of AHS.
I must be the only one indifferent to John Hamm’s win. If Michael C. Hall or Steve Carrell never won, then don’t see the big hoopla or travesty if Hamm would have lost again.
It does get tiring seeing the same people win over and over again.
