The Screen Actors Guild Awards honors the year’s achievements in film and TV acting. Their trophy is a little like an Oscar, in that it features a naked man, but the SAG has the unique distinction of having an absolutely tremendous ass, and also he’s holding two masks: comedy and tragedy. Today, that cheeked-up statue is choosing the sad mask, because the SAGs just hit a scheduling snag, and it’s all because the Recording Academy just moved the Grammy Awards to the same night as the SAG Awards.
Not only did Tiffany Haddish recently reveal that the Recording Academy wanted to pay her the grand total of zero dollars and zero cents to host a three-hour Grammy pre-show ceremony. But according to Tiffany, they also wanted her to cover the cost of her own hair, makeup, and wardrobe. We all know she’s got a dress at home she can wear, and we know that at one point in time this summer she had no hair, but that’s no excuse for cheapness.
Earlier today, I wrote about The Weeknd calling out the Recording Academy for the zero Grammy nominations he received yesterday. He’s not the only one who was wondering why their name was absent from the Best R&B Album category. Justin Bieber is mad that he didn’t receive a single R&B Grammy nomination for his album Changes. Unlike The Weeknd, Justin Bieber received several Grammy nominations yesterday. However, they’re not the ones he wanted.
The Grammys Committee Might Have Shut Out The Weeknd Because He Chose To Perform At The Super Bowl (But The Head Of The Grammys Denies This)
Yesterday the Recording Academy announced their nominations for the 2021 Grammy Awards and many pointed out that The Weeknd was snubbed for his critically acclaimed album After Hours. To borrow a Mean Girls metaphor, The Weeknd was Gretchen Wieners, and there was no candy canes for him in the Grammy’s bag yesterday. As it turns out, there might be a reason why The Weeknd has been shut out of the 2021 Grammys, and it has to do with the Super Bowl.
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B are mad! But not at each other. Amen! Both wound up venting frustrations thanks to the recently released 2021 Grammy Nominations. Nicki let everyone know that the Grammys aren’t shit, haven’t been shit, and are never going to be shit, and Nicki knew that when she lost the Best New Artist award to Bon Iver. And then for some reason, Wiz Khalifa chose to rile up Cardi B and tried to get her and Nicki Minaj back beefing like the old days. But Cardi B didn’t take the bait! Unlike when she was waiting for election results, Cardi provided a stress-free dismissal of Wiz.
Kanye West Is Now A Grammy-Nominated Christian Music Artist (And The Rest Of The Grammy Nominations)
Well I guess this means we’ll now be required to address him as Grammy-Acknowledged Christian Genius Billionaire(ish) Kanye West. I’m sure he’s typing up the press release as we speak! Kanye’s long-time-in-the-making Jesus-themed vanity project Jesus Is King has paid off, at least in terms of professional validation is concerned. The 2021 Grammy Awards were announced today, and Kanye, seen above playing out his own personal Jesus fantasies in the music video for “Closed On Sundays,” got a nomination in the category of Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. And unlike his bid for President, this is actually something he has a shot at winning.
