1959 Grammy Nominee

This week we start with a little overview and look at past info.  Our actual topic focuses on Christmas movies and songs that won awards.  There are surprisingly few.  No Best Actor, Best Actress, or Best Film.  Only one Academy Award winner- Best Song, 1942 (have to listen to find out the song!).  No Grammy winners in the major categories.  Only a single nomination ever for record of the year and that was 1959’s The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)!  I bet no one would guess that the Chipmunks were the last Christmas song to reach #1 on the charts.  50 years is too long- we need a new Christmas Song to sweep these awards.  (Be sure to click the links to hear those chipmunks)
