One Direction Fans React on Twitter to Harry Styles, Niall Horan & Other 1D Solo Grammy Snubs
Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) once proclaimed in famed romance The Notebook, "It wasn't over. It still isn't over!" One Direction fans proclaimed the same in different words on Twitter today (Nov. 28) after none of Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn, Louis Tomlinson or Liam Payne were recognized for their solo efforts in the 2018 Grammy Awards nominations.
As a group, One Direction have never been nominated for a Grammy -- making the pain of today's individual snubs all the worse for long-time Directioners.
Horan's self-titled debut solo album was released too late to be considered for this year's Grammys, but single "Slow Hands" was eligible. Styles' self-titled debut solo album, however, was eligible for nomination as it was released in May, while Zayn could have been nominated for his vocals on Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack smash "I Don't Want to Live Forever," alongside Taylor Swift. ("I Don't Want to Live Forever" was nominated but under the best song written for visual media category, which would award Swift, Sam Dew and Jack Antonoff, but not Zayn.)
Payne's "Strip That Down" and Tomlinson's "Back to You," both Billboard Hot 100 top 40 hits, would similarly have been eligible, as would have a pair of respective star dance collabs from both -- Payne's with Zedd on "Get Low," and Tomlinson's with Steve Aoki on "Just Hold On."
Below are just some of the louder cries over these snubs from Directioners on Twitter.
the fact that none of the boys is nominated for the grammys is so unbelievable ... harry got praised so much by so many big musicians and has a really good album and even though niall's album was too late for a nomination his singles were wildly popular and critically acclaimed— floor -- (@Tomlinbucks) November 28, 2017

grammy’s did one direction dirty and now is doing the same to their solo stuff byE— p (@medicalstyles) November 28, 2017
the chainsmokers actually won a grammy but one direction, who achieved things not even THE BEATLES did, didn’t even get a nomination, I guess getting played at a club rather than hundreds of sold out stadiums has more weight according to the Grammys— bea [blm] (@strangrholland) November 20, 2017

harry styles is too good for a grammy— riz (@callmekarizma) November 28, 2017
Grammys snubbed my son Harry Styles tho tf— Big Baller Brandon (@Jersey_Jinx) November 28, 2017
Honestly the Grammy's are a bunch of BS. They should have been nominated as a whole, and now they should have been nominated as singles. SOTT should have been nominated. WTF.— Ana-- (@anagon7) November 28, 2017
It's not just about SOTT. It's also about Niall. He's been up there this whole year, and even Liam with his stupid Strip that down.— Ana-- (@anagon7) November 28, 2017
I honestly think that who ever is in charge hates 1D.
I'm getting off twitter because I just get more and more mad.— Ana-- (@anagon7) November 28, 2017
