Justin Bieber's manager isn't happy.

After Bieber failed to earn a single nomination Wednesday night, Scooter Braun went on Twitter and blasted the Recording Academy for the snub.

"This time there won't be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE," the 31-year-old mogul tweeted to his 2 million-plus followers. "The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one."

What, no frownie faces?

According to E! News, Braun continued: "The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over ... this time he deserved to be recognized and I don't really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision I don't agree with."

Braun was referring to Bieber's third studio album, "Believe," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts in June, sold more than 2 million copies, and has spawned three top 10 singles: "Boyfriend," "As Long as You Love Me," and "Beauty and a Beat," featuring Nicki Minaj.

And, as we all know, big sales always equal big quality.

Braun did take a moment to congratulate Carly Rae Jepsen, who is signed to his Schoolboy Records label, for scoring two nods for "Call Me Maybe," and had this to say to all the other nominees.

"So to all those nominated ...you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB," he wrote.

Braun concluded with a message to Beliebers.

"To his fans ... looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer," he tweeted before adding, "Life is long, with many ups and downs, but we get to keep going, everyday brings a new opportunity. NOTHING GREAT EVER CAME EASY."

Yes, Justin Bieber is clearly the underdog. Poor kid.
