1996 Grammy Awards - Trivia


  • Both Mariah Carey and Alanis Morissette received six nominations each, but although first-time nominee Alanis won four out her six nominations, Mariah, considered by many to be at the peak of her career and also having received the highest number of simultaneous nominations in her career up to that point, was completely shut out. Alanis Morissette was 21 years old at the time making her the youngest artist to win Album of the Year. She held this record until 2010 when Taylor Swift at 20 became the youngest artist to win the award.

Famous quotes containing the word trivia:

    Pop artists deal with the lowly trivia of possessions and equipment that the present generation is lugging along with it on its safari into the future.
    —J.G. (James Graham)

    The most refined skills of color printing, the intricate techniques of wide-angle photography, provide us pictures of trivia bigger and more real than life. We forget that we see trivia and notice only that the reproduction is so good. Man fulfils his dream and by photographic magic produces a precise image of the Grand Canyon. The result is not that he adores nature or beauty the more. Instead he adores his camera—and himself.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
