Grammy nominations came out late Wednesday night, and for comedians, it was business as usual in the Best Comedy Album category, with previous winners Flight of the Conchords, Lewis Black and Robin Williams joined by previous nominees Margaret Cho and Kathy Griffin. Sorry, newcomers! Just like some of the other big music categories, it seems like Grammy likes herself a familiar name when it comes to comedy.
Note: The eligibility year for all categories began Sept. 1, 2009, and ended Sept. 30, 2010.
Best Comedy Album (for comedy recordings, spoken or musical)
In the Best Spoken Word Album category, which as you can see, they've reclassified to include "poetry, audio books and storytelling," comedians and comic actors won out over politicians in 2010.
The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will be handed out on Feb. 13, 2011, live on CBS.
