Wordy Wednesday: Grammy Nomination for Andy

It's almost Christmas, and for many people, that means trying to figure out what kind of gift to get for that guy who has everything. This year, though, when noted gift consultant Andy Samberg looks into his own box, he may find something truly unexpected: a Grammy award.

Yes, that's right: the 'Saturday Night Live' star, who famously won an Emmy award for his musical collaboration with Justin Timerblake back in 2007, will have to break out his tux once again, as he and new collaborator T-Pain have been nominated for a Grammy Award for their duet 'I'm On a Boat.'

And this time it's not in a television category either: PopEater is reporting that Samberg (along with Lonely Island partners Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer) and T-Pain are up for the award in the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Their competition includes, among others, three different Kanye West projects, which begs the question: if Kanye was upset about Taylor Swift, what kind of speech is he going to give if the creative genius behind 'Motherlover' beats him out?
