Apparently the CD isn't considered an original concept album and doesn't otherwise fall into any other category, so it's not eligible for any Juno awards. Read the whole story above. Sheesh!

Perhaps Robin Williams behind a Shure Microphone on the set of "Good Morning Vietnam. Gotta admit though that the secondary wind screen and length of hair make me think not.

By the way "dickhead"...you might want to think about changing you handle...while being potentially accurate...you are not original, nor funny.

That picture is of Don Henley.

Also,in regards to the Juno flack,I see no reason why "Beautiful" shouldn't be included.

All those nominations & wins! Talk about your indesputable evidence!

Been me,later!

They're still having problems wuth Juno nominations this year. See this link for the latest screw-up:
http://www.canoe.ca/JamColumnBliss/mar1_bliss-can.html

Here's another the main topic of the article was this year's Oscars but the author added:

"No, if you want an example of a flawed awards show this year, you'll have to look to the Junos.

Although the Junos won't be broadcast until April 4, they've already been a comedy of errors. The people who run them initially left Nickelback out of the running for album of the year due to a "data-entry error," and as if that wasn't embarrassing enough, they also disqualified Beautiful, the Gordon Lightfoot tribute album, because it didn't meet the academy's criteria. An awards show that honours the best in Canadian music not accepting a tribute to Gordon Lightfoot? You come up with your own punchline.

And the mistakes keep coming. The Juno people have now admitted they made another omission in the category reserved for the year's best blues album.

That's a lot of mistakes. That's a lot of egg on a lot of faces. The Juno folks may like to believe they represent the musical elite in this country, but the truth is that they have feet of clay just like us ordinary Canadians. Let's face it: the Junos are way more screwed up than the Oscars were this year. Once again, Canada is the world leader." http://www.cbc.ca/news/viewpoint/vp_.../20040302.html

That's because they are the only people in the music business that define "cut" as a synonym for song, when to everyone else it means "recording", derived from the term "cut" as in a track on a vinyl record.

I'd be willing to bet that when the "rules" were written, the meaning was what everyone else thinks but some idiots who run the organization redefined it later - probably by mistake - and are now steadfastly sticking to their stupid definition!
