Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, just one guy who wrote a blog as his idea of a birthday gift to T-Swizzle, we think we just got upstaged. While we’re all standing around Tay singing “Happy birthday to you”, the Golden Globes just gave the Sparkly Dressed and the Civil Wars a nomination for Original Song for Safe and Sound from The Hunger Games motion picture. Best birthday present ever. Way to upstage us, Hollywood Foreign Press Association!

The Golden Globes air on NBC on January 13. The chances of the Queen of Sparks winning a Golden Globe are slim because – wait, did I just say January thirteen? Okey… the odds may be slightly in her favor for this one.

And just so you know, the Oscars are announced on Thursday, January 10, 2013. There’s an Oscar rule that says that the Original Song has to play within the movie’s body or at least at the very start of the end credits… So if that guideline is followed to the letter, Safe and Sound is not in the race since it wasn’t the first song that played in the credits. We’ll see what happens.

The music video for I Knew You Were Trouble will premiere today, Thursday December 13, at 4:40 p.m. ET on MTV.

The German TV show Schlag den Raab will have the Princess in Red as their musical guest this week, December 15. I don’t know whether this is a live performance or a recorded one.
