Can Lady Gaga Change the Way Best New Artist Grammy Is Chosen?

Originally posted 12/01/2009 04:50PM

With only one day left before nominees are announced for the 52nd annual Grammy Awards, the industry is buzzing about who’ll make the cut – and why one of the year's biggest hitmakers is ineligible.

Lady Gaga sold more than 1.5 million copies of The Fame, but the costumed diva won’t be recognized in the Best New Artist category due to her nomination in the Best Dance Recording category for "Just Dance" last year. However, we’ll most likely see her in the Album, Record or Song of the year categories.

Gaga’s exclusion mirrors last year’s snub of Jennifer Hudson in the same category due to her 2007 nomination in the Outstanding Motion Picture Soundtrack Compilation category for Dreamgirls.

Judge to Tom Sizemore: Kick Drugs or Die

Originally posted 02/25/2005 08:00AM

CAUTIONED: A California judge gave Tom Sizemore a break Thursday when he let the 43-year-old actor remain free pending his sentencing next month for a probation violation, the Associated Press reports. Sizemore faces up to four and a half years in jail resulting from an altercation with his former girlfriend, onetime Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss. The judge let Sizemore stay out of jail, despite the fact that the troubled actor has failed seven drug tests, twice admitted methamphetamine use, and failed to show up for drug testing all within the past month. But the jurist had some harsh words for the actor: "There are two ways for you to go," Judge Antonio Barretto Jr. told Sizemore. "One is to recover. The other is to die."
