It’s that time of year when Hollywood, the music industry and everyone else in between congratulate themselves on providing the world with loads and loads of much-needed entertainment. The Oscar noms were announced, yesterday the beloved Razzie noms, and Sunday night glittered with the Grammys.

The lovely and multi-talented Anne Hathaway got up bright and early this morning to announce the Oscar nominations. Not a ton of surprises–Avatar, Up In the Air, Inglorious Bastards, Up, The Hurt Locker and Precious all got some nominations. But Maggie Gyllenhaal kind of came out of nowhere for Best Supporting Actress, Crazy Heart, and Sandra Bullock locked up a nom for The Blind Side, as did the film for Best Picture. The two heated races to watch come Oscar night: Avatar v. The Hurt Locker for Best Picture, and James Cameron v. Kathryn Bigelow for Best Director. FYI, Cameron and Bigelow used to be married–all those Hollywood marriages, divorces, affairs, marriages, divorces were bound to catch up to somebody at some point! Anyway, the Oscars air on ABC on Sunday, March 7 @ 5 PM PT/8 PM ET. And for a complete list of all the nominations click here.

Sandra Bullock may be up for Best Actress, but she’s also up for a Razzie Award for All About Steve (not such a good thing as the Razzies honor the worst in film). Apparently Sandra has the potential to make cinematic awards history as no other actor has won both the Oscar and the Razzie in the same year! The Razzie winners will be announced the night before the Oscars, for the list of all the nominees click here.

The Grammy recap: some people won, some people didn’t…Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Kings of Leon brought home some trophies which was cool, and Kanye West didn’t interrupt any speeches which was good. Lady Gaga and Elton John’s duet was incredible–how amazing would it be if those two went on tour??  But the performance that stole the show was Pink, singing a ballad while hanging upside down from the ceiling, wet and in heels! SINGING UPSIDE DOWN SPINNING WHILE SUSPENDED HIGH UP IN THE AIR. Outstanding! It was a nice contrast to the big productions earlier in the broadcast. Anyway, if you missed it, here is a clip…
