Grammy Awards: Lots of 'em

THE 2007 GRAMMY AWARDS: COMMENTARY: The winner is --- well, there are 108 | Patrick Goldstein, LATimes, via "If you have kids of a certain age who play sports, then you know that no matter what the game, or how well they perform, everybody goes home with a trophy. We want our children to believe they're all winners.

Sort of like the Grammys.

In 1969, when the Rolling Stones released 'Let It Bleed,' there were 45 Grammy Awards (none, of course, for the Stones). In 1988, when Public Enemy put out 'It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back,' there were 76 Grammy Awards (none for Public Enemy). Today there are —- God help us —- 108 Grammy Awards, which were handed out last night in Los Angeles.
