Yeah, I didn't know they were nominated for anything either. I found it listed on the Grammys website for "Best Long Form Music Video". It was the last award on there at #81.

If this is awarded on TV and they have any chance of winning, then I'm sure at least Bono will be there. I can't see him missing a chance to be in front of a camera...

Its already been announced that From the Sky Down didn't win thankfully. Mumford & Sons' Big Easy Express was so much better.

I find that hard to belive. Mumford and Sons are so bad that I'd rather listen to Stuck and IALW endlessly than them

Well I'm not really a mumford fan outside a few songs, so I think U2 should've won.

But "From the Sky Down" could've been better...though I compare every music documentary to Beatles Anthology, and nothing can really ever come close to that. Though "U2 by U2" is an outstanding book, maybe one day that style will be adapted to an official video documentary about the band.

Each to their own. When it comes down to it I can appreciate that other artists can actually produce better stuff than U2, who are still my favorite band. I loved From The Sky Down, but Mumford & Sons was way better. It's ok you don't like them though. Of course.

as I respect your opinions as well Mr. Zoost. I too enjoy when an artist can outdo U2. but that's usually reserved for bands like Coldplay, The Killers, Springsteen, etc.

This category isn't really about the quality of the artist, though that helps. It's about the filmmaking technique and how good the concert video or documentary actually is. I've wanted to see Big Easy Express but I haven't yet (and it's not just a Mumford & Sons documentary, there's a couple of other bands too.) While I like From the Sky Down and would have liked it to win, it's good but definitely not great. And I like Mumford & Sons btw.

Lol @ The Killers being better than U2. #sorryKen
