I didn't watch the Grammys last year, but it looks like Best Comedy Album was part of the main show. And all the nominees were sitting in the audience! 8) (Weird Al!!! :lol: )

I can't see it happening, what with Bret filming in NZ and Jemaine....well, where is Jemaine? :dunno: But wow, it would have been really really really cool. :| Did I put too many really's? I don't think so.

Oh, was it 2009 that FOTC was last nominated? I know that category wasn't part of the main show whenever FOTC was nominated but it looks like it was last year so maybe it will be this year. Colbert's Xmas show was great, I didn't know there was an accompanying album.

Ooh, so there's a good chance it will be televised this year then! It would be amazing if they both could make it but I suppose there's more of a chance of Jemaine being able to turn up (Men In Black 3 is due to resume filming in mid-Feb, right?) and maybe Bret could fly in and out purely for the ceremony. :dunno:

I love it when people recognize the Conchords awesomeness. :thumb: And I agree that this is the perfect excuse for a tour. Of America. ;)

Well, if it's in the televised section instead of the Schmammys (a la Kathy Griffin' s Schmemmies), I think it would be so cool if they were there.

My sense of time is shot - I thought they were nominated for last year's Grammys. :doh:

It's a strange cut off date. I Told You I Was Freaky was released Oct. 20, 2009. The recordings eligible for the 2011 Grammy nominations are those that were released between September 1, 2009, and September 30, 2010. I'm sure you assumed as I did that the 2011 awards would be for 2010 offerings. I remember being shocked when last years noms were announced because I thought the Conchords didn't even get a nod. :hrmpf: I guess last year the Grammys were held earlier, so the nominations were cut off early. This bunch reflects 13 months of eligible recordings. It's a freaky year, you might say... :wink:

I like their collection.

:hrm: Hmmm. Maybe try the grey suit on Jemaine....

And Bret gets the stripey socks. (of course)

I've been hunting for any list of the awards that will be televised live. So far I can only gather that 98 of the 109 will be given out in the afternoon. Maybe it's a fluid thing. They are still daily confirming who will perform at each show and present awards.

The mullet and the beard together in one room may be too much for delicate sensibilities to handle.

:roll2: I hadn't thought of that... they'd make quite a picture together, wouldn't they? ;)

I checked out their website too, lol. They have cool clothes. Except I firmly believe that no male over the age of 7 should wear a blazer and shorts, unless you're in AC/DC. :hrmpf:

The Dolphin Blazer is the coolest!

Summer 2010 is the latest collection? I thought designers designed collections ahead of time. Anyhoo, the model looks 16 and ambiguously sexed. Jemaine is neither of those :P But I do love him in the gray suit. And I'm a sucker for a man in a dressy vest. Hmmmm...when are the Grammys?

Holy crapatronic look at this, Jemaine needs to wear this, with the red shirt and everything. It's amazing.

It would look something like this: "Sorry. Let's go on the road!"

Shewolf, that suit (cowboys & indians) would look great on Jemaine! I almost thought it was him until I read the caption, great shot of Taika too, the broading artist in the background :wink:

I know! That guy does look similar to Jemaine.

Taika looks great in that terra cotta color. I hope Jemaine chooses something interesting from the collection. He's been wearing more normal clothes lately. It would be nice for him to make a fashion statement, this is assuming he's going to the Grammys.
