Grammys: Barack Obama, LeVar Burton & Dave Chappelle Among Spoken-Word Nominees (via Deadline)

CONGRATULATIONS, J. IVY!

We are so proud of you!

Barack Obama, LeVar Burton and Dave Chappelle are among the nominees for Best Spoken Word Album at the 64th annual Grammy Awards, which were announced this morning. Also up for the prize are 10-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle and poet/hip hop artist J. Ivy.

The nom for A Promised Land is the third in the category for Obama and his first in 13 years. He won both previous times, for his audiobooks Dreams from My Father in 2006 and The Audacity of Hope (2008) — the wins coming before he was elected as Commander in Chief.
