Does she want to win? “Oh my God!” [Brandi Carlile] says, as though the thought actually hasn’t crossed her mind. “I don’t know if it’s about wanting to win. I fucking care so much about the nominations. I’m never going to be one of those people who plays it off. I wanna wear the right clothes, I wanna have a great time, I wanna drink champagne. I don’t know if I’m gonna win. I don’t know if I wanna win. But I know that I don’t wanna let anyone down.” Her smile starts to look a little pained, a smidgen sad. “I just don’t wanna feel embarrassed,” she says. “I hate feeling embarrassed.”
