    Murdoc: Oh it’s that time of year again is it? The ‘Grab-A-Grammy’ Competition. Five nominations?! That’s great…Record of the Year? Really? Well I’d have to agree with that. I bought a copy for definite. In fact it hasn’t been off my turntable all year.

    Russel: On behalf of Gorillaz I’d like to say how pleased we are with these nominations. Dangermouse did such an incredible job with the production on this record, so it’s great that he’s nominated for Best Producer.

    2D: Yeah, we just heard. Five nominations… That’s er… wicked. My mum’s gonna be well pleased.

    Noodle: On behalf of all of Gorillaz I’d like to say we’re all really pleased to hear this… De La Soul gave us such a great rap for ‘Feelgood Inc’ so its great that we’re nominated for the Best Pop Collaboration. But I’m really excited to hear about all of these nominations. It’s a real honour.

    2D: ‘Best Urban Alternative Performance’?…Wow! That’s a mouthful. But Dirty Harry’s a great song and the kids choir sang so well on it. Er…Thanks for the nomination.

    Russel: Plus working with Bootie Brown was an absolute pleasure. He’s one of the most well-mannered and considerate people you're ever gonna meet.

    Murdoc: For once I’m…speechless. Really. I genuinely hope we win…’cos…er…I hear Grammys go for a really good price on E-bay. It’s incredible, isn’t it? Five Grammy nominations and I still can’t get someone to come round and unblock the drains…Our studio stinks.
