Will Seth MacFarlane finally win his first GRAMMY? / Washington Post

Bookmark and Share

ONE OF these years, Seth MacFarlane, as a cartooning crooner, is going to bag a Grammy Award that can rest next to his row of Emmys. And on Tuesday, MacFarlane again showed that his best shot at landing a Grammy might come from interpreting midcentury standards from the American songbook. The "Family Guy" creator received his fifth career nod when the 60th annual Grammy nominations were announced this morning, in the category of best traditional pop vocal album, for "In Full Swing." The album, released in September, reached No. 2 last month on Billboard's jazz charts.

MacFarlane will go up against the dean of American songbook crooners, Tony Bennett (nominated for "Tony Bennett Celebrates 90," which includes a collection of artists), as well as Michael Bublé ("Nobody But Me"), Bob Dylan ("Triplicate") and Sarah McLachlan ("Wonderland"). Bennett received the Library of Congress's Gershwin Prize this month in Washington, where the Grammy-winning Bublé was among those who serenaded the 91-year-old legend.

The 2018 Grammys ceremony will be Jan. 28 in New York.
