The 64th Annual Grammy Awards Nominees have been revealed in a mile-long list of categories and that’s to be expected with this particular award since it is essentially the Academy Awards of the recording industry. Now, with that being said, as a scribe who leans towards the heavier side of music there are only a few categories that remotely interest me so please peruse below on the nominations in the Rock and Metal Category for the 2022 Awards broadcast.

Hey there my friends I am back with another awards nominations rundown with the 46th Annual Saturn Awards. As you’ve seen over the course of the past year, I’ve posted a LOT of these kinds of things because with the pandemic still darkening our doors, its better to keep you entertained inside the confines of your home watching videos on the streaming channels, cable networks or even traditional television. These nominations come care of The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films and since we talk about a lot of that stuff on PiercingMetal.com I am posting this awards show stuff here as opposed to over on “The Chronicles”. The pandemic found the time window extended a little bit as well from July 2019 to November 2020 and even included the streaming and VOD (video on demand) stuff as well. Let’s take a look.

Best Comic to Motion Picture Release:
Birds of Prey
