Ernest: Fiona Apple not winning this is impossible.

David: Fiona. Fiona >>>

Insanul: Define “Alternative.” Also, if Fiona doesn’t win I’m throwing my iPhone at my TV. Also, WHY DIDN’T FIONA GET A BEST ALBUM NOMINATION?!?!?!

Foster: So I don’t have to hear Music Critic Twitter bitch about this bullshit for the next four years (or however long it will take Fiona to record a new album), please, please, please give this to Fiona Apple.

Lauren: So, Fiona can and should win—but I really loved M83, it just didn't have the lasting power of a year because I'm sitting here struggling to name other songs on their album
