That's one of the very, very few Grammy categories that actually reflects the most current and best stuff out there. Good luck Conchords!

Thanks, Venus.

So, the last time they won a Grammy I wasn't around. Do they attend the show? Can we look forward to any photos/speeches etc?

I thought the last time the category wasn't televised.

I like Lewis Black. I can take or leave Cho & Griffin and Robin Williams - wtf?

So yeah, my vote goes to the Conchords. :wink: :lol:

I don't think the Best Comedy Album is usually televised. Although it's been a while since I've watched the Grammys so I could be wrong.

They should be invited to be presenters...as past winners that's not outrageous is it?

I'm curious to see if they win. The first album was awesome and had momentum behind it. The 2nd? Not so much, and now the show is off the air. They may have e a bit of an edge seeing that it's music/comedy rather than stand up comedy. Although Cho's album may contain music for all I know. I saw her live recently and her music was the best part -well not the songs in themselves as she is hardly a songwriter on the scale of the Clement/McKenzie ilk - but her voice is really lovely.

"I told you I was Freaky" is really so good. The only weak spot imo is leaving Jemaine off of Petrov, (though Bret's voice is sweet as). I haven't heard the competition yet, and I don't know how much politics and momentum play into it...but the album is tight, sexy and ridiculously funny. In my impartial opinion it should easily win. :D Carol Brown recieved an Emmy nod even. :nod:

Go Conchords! :cheer: And along with Bret and Jemaine...congrats to James Bobin, Mickey Petralia, Sub Pop and everyone else involved in the album. :clap:

YAAAAYYY!!! Oh-- flashbacks to the emmys (when my mom and I sat in the marquee section and spied on Bret, Jemaine, James, and an elderly woman Jemaine kept talking to, through binoculars for three hours) If the voters have any common sense this should be an easy win. :boogie: :yay: :nod: :dance: :party: :whitey: :woohoo: :jc: and uhh... why not :chick:
