      Adam Levine sings it, it was written by Gregg Alexander from the New Radicals. He also wrote most of Ronan Keating’s solo career.

      The idea of Micahel Bay winning anything has been blown out of all proportion…. then it was washed away in a fast moving lava flow only for the lava to flow into the sea causing a tsunami that caused explosions on coastlines the world over which led to the spread of a mad man eating flesh disease that caused more explosions due to nuclear missile silo operators falling on their big red buttons simultaneously and in slow motion and all caught on AI operated gyroscopic CCTV cameras in super ultra HDDDDDDD4k definition !

      That’s why, so there.

      Take it back to Tumblr fella.

      Its a merotocracy. I can’t think of any perfromances by people of colour this year that surpass those nominated, but I’m open to debate.
