I.C.Y.M.I.: What to Expect at the 2021 Grammy Awards
Greetings, fellow pop culture aficionados, and welcome to week 50 of ourI.C.Y.M.I.(In Case You Missed It) blog series, where we recap a handful of trending tidbits from the past week(s) in popular culture, in case you missed them.
As for the night's potential honorees, Beyoncé tops the list with nine nominations, including a pair for Record of the Year for "Black Parade" and for her "Savage" remix with Megan Thee Stallion. Swift, Lipa, and Roddy Ricch hold six nominations each, with Lipa, who won Best New Artist at last year's awards, in the running for Record-, Album-, and Song- of the Year honors. Carlile, meanwhile, carries two nominations for Best Country Song and Best Song Written For Visual Media.
We'll even be live tweeting throughout the ceremony, so be sure to give us a follow on Twitter and join us for a candid music conversation online Sunday night!
What Else To Catch Up On This Weekend
On the MoPOP public programs front, our So Bad It's Good online watchalong series continues with Anaconda at 6 p.m. PST this Saturday, March 13, when we'll be joined by special guest Chelsea Connor, a herpetologist, artist, and science communicator from the Commonwealth of Dominica. Registration for the virtual event is open now!
Get ready for this weekend's Anaconda event by swallowing up some more So Bad It's Good content, this one featuring MoPOP staff advocating for the chaotic and deeply weird Teen Witch(1989), a film that will have you asking, "is there any code of ethics in this coven?" and "is this musical, or are people just singing?"
Now that we've filled you in on a few things, what do you feel we failed to mention? Let us know in the comments, or hit us up with a suggestion on social media. We'll look to include your ideas in our next edition ofI.C.Y.M.I.
