After the 53rd annual GRAMMY Awards ceremony on Sunday, I came to work Monday morning and immediately logged onto Twitter to see what was the haps.
Before me stood several variations of Esperenza Spaulding on the Trending Topics list: Esperenza Spaulding, #Esperenza, etc. I had never heard of Miss Spaulding before Monday morning—I missed watching the GRAMMYs—but all it took was one click to find out who she was, and now I’m obsessed. She. Is. Awesome.
Anyway, my point is I have a strong feeling that we will see more instances of “Who the @#$% is ______________?” the Monday after the Oscars. Without further ado, I give you my Twitter Trending Topics predictions the Monday after the Academy Awards:
