2010 ARIA Awards Nominations

2010 ARIA AWARDS NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED.

With just weeks until the ARIA Awards take place at the iconic Sydney Opera House (Sunday, 7 November on Network Ten) the nominees across a record 31 categories were announced yesterday at the ARIA Nominations event at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

The nominations are an intriguing mix of new and established music artists and set the scene for what should be the most unique ARIA Awards yet. The nominations feature six brand new categories including four which will be open to the music loving public to add their voice to the final outcome. The nominations encompass the new peer voted categories of BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST, [formerly Breakthrough Single and Album] BEST HARD ROCK / HEAVY METAL ALBUM and BEST ADULT ALTERNATIVE ALBUM.

In what is sure to be a hit among music lovers, for the first time in ARIA Awards history, Australian music fans will be given the opportunity to vote in four brand new categories. Three of these categories – MOST POPULAR AUSTRALIAN SINGLE, MOST POPULAR AUSTRALIAN ALBUM and MOST POPULAR INTERNATIONAL ARTIST – the final nominees are based on the top selling singles and albums in the eligibility period (Friday, 28 August, 2009, to Saturday, 21 August, 2010 inclusive). The remaining category is MOST POPULAR AUSTRALIAN ARTIST and the nominees for this Award are pooled from the finalists in 26 categories of this year’s ARIA Awards (excluding ARIA Artisan Awards nominees).

Australian music fans will be given the first ever opportunity to determine who will take home these Publicly Voted ARIA Awards presented by V Energy Drink. The winners of these four Awards, as determined by Australian music fans, will be announced during the telecast for the 2010 ARIA Awards on Sunday, 7 November.

From 14 October, fans can go to www.ariaawards.com.au/venergypopularvote and cast their vote to determine the first ever Popular Voted ARIA Awards across all four categories. You can also vote from www.facebook.com/venergyoz or www.facebook.com/aria.official.

The first round of voting finishes on Thursday, 28 October, with the final 5 nominations in each category announced on Sunday, 31 October and everyone gets a second chance to vote one last time up until 11:59pm on Saturday, 6 November with the winner announced at the ARIA’s on Sunday, 7 November.
