I guess I just like liking things

Weird Al won a Best Comedy Album Grammy for Mandatory Fun last night, his fourth overall.  Here’s his acceptance speech:

When he started to get choked up a little, I did, too.

He beat out Jim Gaffigan, Louis C. K., Patton Oswalt, and Sarah Silverman for the award this year, and that’s kind of a crazy group. I mean, I know they can’t have a “Musical Comedy Album” section, because Al’s really the only game in town as far as that’s concerned, but it feels a little weird for him to be lumped in with the spoken comedy people.

Al’s Grammy wins to date:

  • 1985: Best Comedy Album for “Eat It”
  • 1988: Best Concept Music Video for “Fat”
  • 2004: Best Comedy Album for “Poodle Hat”
  • 2015: Best Comedy Album for “Mandatory Fun”

Congratulations, Al! It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
