One can't help feeling tremendously grateful and motivated!
Some of us have come to know this event as music's biggest night, and this year's Grammys were nothing short of emotional. From Adele's sweeping win after battling with her health, to the beautiful tribute performed in memory of the legendary Whitney Houston, this will be a night we shall not forget.
Amoung the Grammy ads were a few re-runs from this year's Super Bowl, and others that date a little while back. But nevertheless, here are the spots that made me laugh, cry and enjoy the evening. The one's who were music to my ears. (sorry, I just had to write that)

The announcement of the 2011 Emmy nominations have given us six competitors under the category of Outstanding Commercial who seem to have all that it takes to score. From celebrity appearances, polar bears, babies, Indian flea markets, to even Isaiah Mustafa wearing nothing but a towel, it looks as if the choice will be pretty difficult. Kudos to the brands who made the list- McDonald's, Chrysler, Subaru, Nissan, Old Spice and American Express- and especially to agencies TBWA and Wieden+Kennedy, as well as Ogilvy and Carmichael Lynch for their outstanding work and nominations.
I am, however, surprised to see that the Super Bowl smash hit- Volkswagen's "The Force"- didn't make the cut... but nevertheless, here are the nominees!
McDonald's Title: "Baby" Agency: TBWA\Chiat\Day New York
Chrysler 200 Title: "Born on Fire" Agency: Wieden+Kennedy
