EGOT WATCH: Grammy nominations are out this morning, and a few EGOT-watch notes:
  • Wiz Khalifa/Charlie Puth ("See You Again," Song of the Year and others)
  • Seth MacFarlane (Traditional Pop Vocal Album)
  • Amy Poehler (Spoken Word for the audiobook of Yes, Please)
  • Louis C.K. (Best Comedy Album)
  • Michael Cerveris/Sydney Lucas and Christian Borle/Brian D'Arcy James (Best Musical Show Album, even though they won't be winning, because Hamilton)
  • There are no listed individual nominations for "Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media," but goes to "artist(s) or in-studio producers of a majority of the tracks on the album."  That probably does not qualify either Elizabeth Banks or Anna Kendrick for an award (Kendrick/"Barden Bellas" are credited on only 7 of the album's 18 tracks), but who knows?
 Also, given that she was nominated for song and record of the year last year for "All About That Bass," doesn't the Meghan Trainor "New Artist" nod seem iffy?  (The rule is that you're only ineligible if you've won a Grammy before.)
