The funny thing about all these confused tweets is the way that they are basically the reverse of classic “indie” snobbishness. It’s just a bunch of people embracing their extremely limited range of cultural knowledge and expecting to be congratulated for it. The thing is, while Arcade Fire may not be as mainstream as other nominees, they certainly are mainstream. Everything in music culture is so niche now that those more famous nominees would get the same “who, what?” from people at a different end of the pop culture spectrum.

NBC has announced two Saturday Night Live lineups for November: Scarlett Johansson will host on Nov. 13 with Arcade Fire as the musical guest, while Anne Hathaway is set to emcee the Nov. 20 show featuring Florence and the Machine. This will be Johansson’s third hosting gig and Hathaway’s second.
