What a debate I started! Really, it doesn't matter to me much if it is nominated or not. I owned it as a child and liked it, but it's not like I am emotionally attached to it. I was merely asking if it was eligible, and seeing that it's not, it's OK. I will rescind that nomination and only have "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" as a nom.

There, debate over.

Jenny, Everybody has seen Jersey Shore and knows the kind of trouble you Jersey Girls can stir up.
