With Gypsy taking the Grammy on Sunday I'm curious as to who actually gets the Grammy statue(s). Angel records and the producers? Would Berndaette get a statue to add to her past Tonys, Golden Globe?

I'm not sure how it works, but I doubt she would get one. If that were the case then everyone involved would get one. It's a cast album, not a solo recording, so I'm assuming it goes to the lyricist and composer?

This is the listing on the Grammy web site:

"Best Musical Show Album
(Award to the Album Producer(s), and to the Lyricist(s) & Composer(s) of 51% or more of a new score. (Artist, Lyricist & Composer names appear in parenthesis.))

Jay David Saks, producer (Jule Styne, composer; Stephen Sondheim, lyricist) (New Broadway Cast With Bernadette Peters, Tammy Blanchard, John Dossett & Others)
[Angel Records]"

So, yes, Christine, the lyricist and composer do get the Grammy, as well as the record producer(s).

(If I were the producer/composer/etc I'd have a special award made up for Bernadette; I think that if it weren't for her, this recording probably would not have won the Grammy.)
