And this might not even BE the complete list, because there’s so damned many categories and I started to lose track after awhile. If I’m wrong, hey – there’s this great new thing called ‘Google.’ It can tell you lots of stuff that you probably didn’t know before, and I urge you to make use of it if you think I’ve gotten something wrong down there.

I’m pretty excited for Lady Antebellum, you know, winning a lot of the important categories, because guys? I LIKE Lady Antebellum.  Bizzare, I know, especially considering my general distaste for country music, so this year?  Was totally exciting.
