During a recent episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the talk show’s host had the Jonas Brothers as one of her guests. While talking about the upcoming Grammy Awards, Ellen DeGeneres, 61, realized she didn’t know how many nominations she’s had.


Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas make up the pop group the Jonas Brothers. The boy band is currently nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their song "Sucker."

DeGeneres is also a nominee this year for Best Comedy Album for her Netflix special “Relatable.” While interviewing the three brothers, Nick asked the television host and comedienne if her nomination was her first one.

Ellen’s three Grammy nominations

DeGeneres quickly confirmed that it was before realizing that she wasn’t sure, much to the pleasure of the audience. A clip of the interaction showed her asking her show’s producer if it really was the first nomination.

The producer is seen holding up two fingers and the actress notes: "No, this is my second Grammy nomination." The producer appears to think about it for a second and doubles back by clarifying that it’s actually the third one.


TV host hopes to win Grammy this year

After the confusion, Nick joked: "I'm sorry, we only have two." Not to be outdone, DeGeneres retorted back: "That's terrible."

She then added that this year’s nomination was her “favorite” one. The television host also shared that she really wanted to win the Grammy this year.


Jonas Brothers also hope to win

Nick agreed with her stating that they too were keen on winning the award. One can’t really fault DeGeneres for forgetting the number of accolades she’s received.

DeGeneres gets the Carol Burnett Award


During the 77th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, the star was honored with the Carol Burnett Award. The award was given out for its second year running.


Who can win the Burnett Award

In its inception year, Burnett herself was given the lifetime achievement award. According to the organization, the accolade was created to recognize "an honoree who has made outstanding contributions to the television medium on or off the screen."

The 2020 Grammy Awards will air on Sunday, January 26 on CBS starting at 5:00 p.m. EST / 8:00 p.m. PST.
