Eminem Grammy 2011

The 2011 Grammy Nominees were announced yesterday. And thanks to Eminem and his “quitting-drugs-makes-you-better” opus “Recovery,” urban music is nominated in almost every single category… you know, except for the categories where Hip-Hop and R&B don’t qualify. ‘Cause, duh!

Nominations for the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards were announced tonight by The Recording Academy and reflected an eclectic mix of the best and brightest in music over the past year as determined by the voting members of The Academy. For the third year, nominations for the annual GRAMMY Awards were announced on primetime television as part of “The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown To Music’s Biggest Night” a one-hour special broadcast live on CBS from Club Nokia at L.A. Live.

Eminem topped the nominations with 10; Bruno Mars garnered seven; and Jay-Z, Lady Antebellum, and Lady Gaga each earned six nods. Jeff Beck, B.o.B, David Frost, Philip Lawrence, and John Legend received five each; and Alex Da Kid, the Black Keys, Drake, Cee Lo Green, Ari Levine, Katy Perry, Rihanna, the Roots, Dirk Sobotka, and Zac Brown each earned four nominations.

“This year’s nominations are a true reflection of an exceptional and talented community of music makers that embody some of the highest levels of excellence and artistry in their respective fields,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “It is most gratifying to see the GRAMMY Awards process once again produce a broad cross section of diverse and impressive nominees across multiple genres. Coupled with the third year of our primetime nominations special, the road to Music’s Biggest Night, the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards in February, is off to an exciting start.”

  • xedos

    Katy Perry and lady gaga for album of the year. really !
    Alicia keys got snub Sade got snub Rihanna Rater R got snub
    But kathy perry and gaga

    • n_satiable

      Rated R DESERVED to be snubbed. It was a mess.

      I don’t see, though, how Katy Perry got a nomination. Gaga I understand, but not Katy.

  • xedos

    it seems like even if Beyonce don’t put out an album in 10 yrs the grammy will find a way to give her a nomination

  • StarLight

    I know it sounds terrible but I love Cee Lo’s F*** You. If you have heard it find it cause EVERYBODY has felt this way at one time or another. LOL

    I don’t think I’ve heard anything by Lady Antebellum or B.O.B. I have to google them.

    • StarLight

      Ummm…. am I the only one deeply disturbed by this picture of Eminem?!!?!

  • Marie

    These nominations are lame. What kind of world do we live in when artists like Katy Perry and Justin Bieber receive Grammy nominations over Sade!?!The only glimmer of hope I see on this list is Esperanza Spalding. NOW THAT IS TALENT!

    • StarLight

      I had to google her. I gotta agree with you. This woman sounds like an angel.

  • Glok...I judge wisely sitting between 2 Pillars of Ivory!!!

    YALL ON HERE THANKING THIS CRAKA FOR BRING BACK URBAN MUSIC ,..IZ YOU PPL STOOPID OR DESPERATE?….WELL FUK THE GRAMMIES THEN!

  • chaka1

    I will skip this Grammy year although I think the Producer of the Year category is interesting. No wonder most of these pop songs sound the same.

  • n_satiable

    I’m sure someone’s going to criticize me for this, but I don’t care. At first I wondered why Rihanna, considering what she’s been through, would agree to a collaboration on a song that condones staying in a violent (and at the end, hinting at homicidal) relationship. Then I realized that she is basically chasing another Grammy. Because goodness knows that she is NEVER going to win one solo….

  • Why?

    Why can we applaud and thank Eminem when he does well for hip hop but we hate on Jay-Z so hard for all the many things he does for hip-hop? Does Eminem’s success not mske you feel inadequate or threathened like Jay-Z’s does? Get it together!

    • UMeant2sayThat

      So well said!!!!

  • real Ness

    Urban savior?? Is everybody forgetting none of Eminem’s singles barely got ANY spin on actual urban radio

  • Jinx

    Eminem is the Elvis of Hip Hop , fuc him. He took something us black folks have been doin 4 years, and since he’s white he capitalizes off of it. Just like Elvis did, Rot In Peace

    • Glok...I judge wisely sitting between 2 Pillars of Ivory!!!

      YOU DO MEAN ROTT IN PISS!

  • Natalie

    The grammy’s this year to me seem fair I mean there wasn’t any good music out this year true be told. I’m surprised about alicia keys not being in the running for best female in rnb album or solo with “Unthinkable”. But otherwise a good selection by the grammys congulations to eminem and lady gaga they deserve it. Also I hope Jazmine Sullivan gets something that girl can sang.

  • Lele

    All the Eminem hatin needs to stop. He deserve every single nod he got and I mean he better sweep it up

    • Entoon

      Says who, b*tch? white folks? no falling for “their standards” of OUR MUSIC! Em white azz got all them nids cuz he’s white! he’s NOT the best rapper! People just amazed his white azz can catch a beat and stay on it!! a feat whites are scared to try at home! white boy imitation of a black man is the usual story! fallback!

    I want Cee Lo Green and Sade to win. Cee Lo is ONE of the most talented artist I’ve seen. Alot of people sleep on him and now they just know him for the f you song…please…this man is beyond talented since goodie mob, and I loved his group gnarles barkley. He needs to be recognized. Sade…..enough said…pure talent

    lol, why is everyone hatin on eminem for steal hip pop?…..have you guyz forgotten Rock music?….invented by blacks, made by blacks…now how many black rockers do we have???..Zero. we should channel our hatred to MTV for killing rock in blacks.

  • Maureen

    Beyonce was seriously nominated for a live recording of a song from 2 years ago? Give me a break!! Should have been replaced with Pink’s “Glitter in the Air” or Kelly Clarkson’s “Already Gone.” Not that I don’t love B, but come on. Must we ALWAYS find a way to give her an award?

  • http://grind365.com Al

    Eminem’s a young legend!

  • Mz.Drizzy

    congrats to drake and jayz..eminem is gonna win everything cause white people went and bought the album

  • http://fabwtalk.blogspot.com fabwtalk

    People are going really hard on Em for no reason. Let me start by saying I am a black woman and I love Em’s music especially his Recovery album. Talent is talent no matter the color and he makes you want to listen each time because he tells a story. You have to give credit where credit is due and I give credit to Em because he is a legend in the making.

  • RHONYC

    Em is so damn EXTRA in that photo.
    he is like the abused child that escaped from being locked in the basement by abusive, f*cked up parents.
    get ’em, Em.
    GROWN TORTURED ABUSE CHILDREN UNITE!!! LOL
    i bet a shrink would have a field day with him.
    loves it!🙂

    • yvonne
