     LOS ANGELES— It may seem as though Academy Awards voters would be a bunch of fawning monarchists, considering how often the ceremony has been a love fest for all things English. But British kings and queens generally wind up losers at the Oscars.

  • Lose Yourself: Eminem only wins 2 of 10 Grammys

    LOS ANGELES — The Grammys love Eminem. Over his decade plus career, they’ve showered him with 13 Grammy Awards — and gave him two during this year’s ceremonies.
    But their love for Eminem seems to only extend to the rap categories. Despite being regarded as one of music’s geniuses, he has never won a Grammy outside of the genre — a streak that continued on Sunday.
