Juno nominations announced today.  I try really hard not to be too negative, but when Nickelback is nominated for a fan choice award and Susan Boyle is nominated for International Album of the Year…

Some (personal) highlights:

  • Metric (3 nominations for Group OTY, Songwriter OTY, Alternative Album OTY)
  • K’Naan (3 nominations for Artist OTY, Songwriter OTY, Rap Recording OTY)
  • Classified (3 nominations for Single OTY, Rap Recording OTY, Video OTY)
  • Arcade Fire (Music DVD OTY)
  • Cuff the Duke (Adult Alternative Album OTY – whatever that means)
  • Handsome Furs (Alternative Album OTY)
  • Japandroids (Alternative Album of the Year)
  • K-Os (Rap Recording OTY)
