The album by the Canadian indie rockers was released in August and was described by frontman Win Butler as "a mix of the Depeche Mode and Neil Young." It drew two other nods this year: Best Alternative Music Album and Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals.

S--- my dad says? Not if your dad's Eminem.
The rapper may use R-rated lyrics in his rhymes, but around the house the mouth stays clean.
"I'm a parent. I have daughters," Eminem, 37, tells 60 Minutes in an interview airing Sunday. "I don't cuss. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person … walking around my house [saying] 'Bitch, pick this up,' you know what I mean?"
Eminem, who has a daughter Hailie, 14, with ex-wife Kim, is also bringing up Lainey, daughter of Kim's sister, and Whitney, Kim's daughter from a previous relationship.

Lady Gaga wasn't the only artist to get good news from MTV Tuesday.
Eminem racked up eight MTV Video Music Award nominations, making him the year's most nominated male artist, the network announced.
"Apparently MTV doesn't care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMAs. F me, right?!?!," says the rapper, who's up for Best Male and Best Hip Hop Videos. "I mean, I'll be there but don't expect me to be nice about it."

It's been a long battle for Eminem, whose latest album Recovery is dedicated to the addictions he overcame to Vicodin, Valium, Ambien and Methadone.
The rapper, 37, born Marshall Mathers, has said that at one point, he was taking up to 20 pills a day.
"I used to get pills wherever I could," he tells the New York Times. "I was just taking anything that anybody was giving to me."

Elton John is there for Eminem, who is battling a drug problem.
"I've been helping Eminem over the last 18 months and he's doing brilliantly," John says, reports the British Press Association.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 in the U.K. on Saturday, Sir Elton, 62, who has freely spoken about his own past issues with substance abuse, said: "I'm there if people want my help. If people ask for help you tell them where to go but there's no point advising people if they don't want to do it."
In May, Eminem admitted he'd suffered from a devastating drug addiction that led to him downing as many as 20 Vicodin, Ambien and Valium in a day.
