Grammys 1989

Cindy J/Autumn Meredith, Leather Trio Productions.
Autumn: Cindy is in a huff.
Cindy: Yeah. My dad did not get nominated for an academy award.
A: She's talking about Clint Eastwood. (Note: this was written in 1989 and 20 years later, Clint Eastwood was again overlooked by the Academy, this time for Gran Torino. He has won Academy Awards in the last 20 years, but not for best actor.)
C: Bird was 1988's best film and it only got one academy award nomination.
A: For best sound.
C: It shoulda got best actor and best director.
A: And best use of great music in a great film.
C: Well I think Autumn is in an even bigger huff than me.
A: Cause 'tallica did not win a Grammy. And they could just crunch those wimps Jethro Tull who walked off with the award.
C: Which just goes to show if you wanna win the heavy metal Grammy you gotta prance around in leotards and play a flute.
A: Metallica do not do this. But their performance of "One" on the show just crunched all over everybody else.
C: Maybe Tracy Chapman could give them one of her extra Grammys. What do you think, Leah Simon?
A: Just as cool on the Grammy show was our Sinead O'Connor who was being all punk rock and torn jeans. And she's a mom too.
C: Way to shock the yuppies Sinead.
