She's gonna kill v. maim someone!
While Canada is usually more progressive than America when it comes to social issues, they don't seem to be much better than us when nominating people for awards.
The nominees for the 2016 Juno Awards were revealed on Tuesday… and it's clear they must have forgotten that females can make music, too — but one person who definitely didn't forget is singer/musician/producer/artist Grimes.
The 27-year-old had her highest charting album of her career in 2015 with Art Angels, but she and most of her female peers were mysteriously overlooked by the music awards show, spawning the hashtag #JunosSoMale!
Naturally, Grimes took to Twitter to vent her frustrations in a series of now-deleted tweets, saying:
They've got ratings, and they're multiplyin'!
Grease: Live may have captured America's hearts Sunday night, but did the new name in live TV musicals do enough to dethrone its predecessors?
Believe it or not, Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the cast pulled in an impressive 12.18 million viewers — a number practically unheard of for FOX aside from Empire and The X-Files revival.
Unfortunately for the T-Birds and Pink Ladies, however, their 4.3 rating was just a note shy of beating Carrie Underwood's 4.6 for The Sound of Music Live… but that one was critically panned, so we know who the real winner is.
Grease did manage to surpass both of the other NBC musical outings — The Wiz Live and Peter Pan Live – so hopefully this means we get to see Grease 2: Live in the near future!

We're right there with you, Anna!
We already showed you what most of the Twitterverse thought about FOX's live show… but we've saved the best for last.
Ch-ch-check out the very best of Anna's Grease: Live reactions (below)!!!
Tell us about it, studs.
Now that we've had some time to sit and think about the amazing production of Grease: Live, we're still just in awe of what FOX was able to accomplish with their take on the live TV musical.
Sure, NBC was the first network to try to make theater cool again, but Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens, and the rest of the cast really shined on Sunday night, blowing us away visually, technically, and sonically.
But don't just take our word for it — the critics are all in agreement that Grease: Live was certainly the bee's knees.
Plus, it didn't hurt that we got tons of star-making moments from Kether Donohue, Keke Palmer, Elle McLemore, Jordan Fisher, and Haneefah Wood!
However, everyone did agree on one thing… Mario Lopez was kinda the worst…
Ch-ch-check out what today's top critics had to say about Grease: Live (below)!!!
FOX just set the bar for live stage shows, and the Internet knows it.
While NBC was the first network to enter the live musical game, Grease: Live kind of blew everything they've done out of the water thanks to the audience, sets, and breathtaking talent from Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens, and the rest of the cast!
You already know how much we loved it, but what did Twitter have to say about the production?
Ch-ch-check out the best Twitter reactions to Grease: Live (below)!!!
This is how you do a live musical!
Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Carly Rae Jepsen, Keke Palmer, Kether Donohue, Carlos PenaVega, David Del Rio, Jordan Fisher, Andrew Call, Elle McLemore, Noah Robbins, and Vanessa brought Grease to life for FOX in a way NBC hasn't been able to capture with The Sound of Music, Peter Pan, or even The Wiz.
Having a live audience and actual sets must actually make a difference — who would have guessed? LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out Summer Nights (above) and the rest of the performances (below)!!!
Joe Jonas is gonna get his Hand Jive on!
According to reports, the singer and his DNCE bandmates are joining the cast of Grease: Live!
The indie rock band, led by the former Jonas Brother, will be playing Johnny Casino and the Gamblers — the band that plays at Rydell High's school dance — in the Fox broadcast!
In the 1978 film, the rock-n-roll group Sha Na Na portrayed the Gamblers and performed soundtrack hits like Born To Hand Jive and Blue Moon!
DNCE is the second band cast in the TV special. Just last week, Fox announced that Boyz II Men will be playing a trio of Teen Angels!
