Our Commenters of the Week Win A Grammy Nomination for Best New Artist!


It doesn't matter if you commented here for the first time 14 years ago. Movieline, like the Grammy committee, is validating the efforts of youngsters and oldsters alike with the most flexible award of them all: the Grammy for Best New Artist. Have I not met you before? You're new to me! Just like the Silversun Pickups, the Dixie Chicks, or the Blues Brothers, really. So who leaves the Movieline dais with a trophy?

Martini Shark on 5 Things Steven Seagal Taught Us on Lawman: Did he offer any zen on how to channel your character while having a stunt stand-in do all your action moves in direct-to-rental action titles? That is his specialty these days.

The Winchester on Still-Jailed Roman Polanski Coming Up Short in $4.5 Million Bail Quest: I wonder if he's used his prison time wisely, to properly weigh the issues between his choice of Team Edward or Team Jacob.

Daft Clown on ABC Unveils a Strict Post-Lambert Performance Contract: According to Anne Sweeney, the Disney/ABC audience would prefer to live in a world in which homosexuality simply does not exist. I beg to differ though, because I recall Beauty and the Beast's Lumiere as being an unabashed flamer and the kids still loved him.

Dimo on 5 Unbeatable Harlem Globetrotter Appearances on TV, in Honor of Our Favorite Amazing Race Team: I'm pretty sure they took a cruise on The Love Boat as well. Rumor has it that Meadowlark Lemon wasn't happy with his lines, because Julie/Lauren Tewes was snorting them all.

Furious D on Tough Break, Charlie Brown: Apparently to make up for bumping Charlie Brown, President Obama is going to have to dance like Snoopy at the end of the speech.

Congrats to all our winners!

    Life is so unnerving
    For a commenter who's not serving
    They're not whole without a soul to comment on
    Ah, those good old days when we were useful...
    Suddenly those good old days were gone
    Ten weeks we've been rusting
    Needing so much more than dusting
    Needing exercise, a chance to use our skills!
    Most days we just lay around the website...
    Flabby, fat and lazy
    You walked in and oops-a-daisy!
    Come on and lift your glass
    You've won your own free pass
    To be out guest!
    Be our guest!
    Be our guest!

  • Does this mean I rode Seagal's coat-tails, or his pony tail?

  • Dimo says:

    First of all, I'd like to thank God for making all this possible. And of course my talented team at Movieline who believed in this little o' farm boy from Upstate New York when nobody else would. Much love, much love....oh, I'm getting the light...This is all for the fans...and mom!

  • SunnydaZe says:

    Your winning comment really made me laugh! May I steal it??

  • Dimo says:

    Go crazy Sunny D!

  • SunnydaZe says:

    I'm gonna steal that too.

  • Old No.7 says:

    Note to self: Don't threaten to kick Louis in the 'nads on the weeks he's working the COTW rotation.

  • Louis Virtel says:

    Where I come from, a kick in the nads means "thank you." So don't worry.

  • Daft Clown says:

    This moment is so much bigger than me.
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
