Unexpected

I recently heard an NPR interview with some out-of-touch dude at the grammys, who defended the obtuseness of the grammy voters relative to those in the motion picture academy. (Because, you know, the Grammys are only one step above the Billboard Awards, for whatever reason.)

I'm not sure if Herbie Hancock's win constitutes another nail in the coffin of grammy irrelevance or not, given Amy Winehouse's across the board success in other categories, but I do know that I loved his reaction. And how cute was it when Quincy Jones squatted to pick up Herbie's thank you list, which he had dropped in his excitement?
