Kathy Griffin and Margaret Cho face off for best comedy album


Kathy Griffin and Margaret Cho face off for best comedy album

The Grammy nominations were announced last week. There were some highlights (queer hip-hop artist Frank Ocean’s plethora of nominations) and some lowlights ("Call Me Maybe" as song of the year!?).

Additionally, I'm very happy Fiona Apple's The Idler Wheel is nominated, although I wouldn't call it an alternative album.  

The golden gramophone for best comedy album may go to one of two favourite fag hags: Margaret Cho or Kathy Griffin.

Only two women, Lily Tomlin and Whoopi Goldberg, have won in the history of this category. This is Griffin’s fifth nomination and Cho’s second, but these two funny females face some stiff competition, form of Jimmy Fallon, Tenacious D, Jim Gaffigan and Lewis Black.

I’ll be rooting for either Cho or Griffin on awards night. Check out videos of their nominated works below.
