New words for the bio

Two new words: Grammy-nominated. (Or does the hyphen technically make it one word?)

Osvaldo Golijov’s Ainadamar was nominated in two categories – Best Opera Recording and Best Classical Contemporary Composition. The producer of the album, Sid McLauchlan, is also nominated for Producer of the Year, Classical.

I’m not considered a “principal soloist,” so I wouldn’t receive a Grammy if it wins. But my bio will now read “…can be heard on the Grammy-nominated recording of Ainadamar, released in May 2006.” Or, maybe, come February 11, “… Grammy-award-winning…”

I’d better call Mr. Mouret or Ms. Herrera and start talking about my gown…

Congratulations! So many great things have been happening to you lately. I've heard so many good things about that performance/recording, so I'm going to have to ask for a copy for Christmas. Even though you won't win an actual Grammy, how many people get the chance to say they were part of a Grammy-winning production with DAWN UPSHAW? Fantastic. I'm so glad things are happening for you. :)

If it were me, I would using "Grammy-nominated" as an adjective for everything in my life. "Oh, hi, welcome to my Grammy-nominated apartment. Can I offer you a Grammy-nominated cocktail? Please have a seat on my Grammy-nominated futon."

Seriously, many sincere congrats.
