I’m sitting in my family room watching the pre-Grammy Awards Red Carpet show on E! and I’m getting excited to see who wins what and, more importantly, what everybody is wearing. If I can, I’m going to post my best and worst dressed tomorrow sometime. But for now, I’m making my picks for some of the categories I care about most. We’ll see how many times I get it right.
