The Grammy Nominations, in brief:
• Amy Winehouse earns six nominations, and dominates the major categories
• Kanye West gets the most nods, eight
• Despite a cold critical reception for their newest, The Foo Fighters score an impressive five nods in marquee categories like album of the year, record of the year and rock album
• Bruce Springsteen “dissed,” getting only four nods in minor-ish categories
• The most improbable nominee? Herbie Hancock’s Joni Mitchell tribute album, River: The Joni Letters, for album of the year. Don’t count it out, though: If Steely Dan reunion albums can win this category, then surely Hancock stands a chance, too
• The Plain White T’s must not win the song of the year award for “Hey There Deliah” under any circumstances • Also scoring miscellaneous nods: Feist, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, Macca and Maroon 5
