It’s a good day to be Nickelback. Not only will they be performing at the Junos, but it was just announced that they lead all other honourees with five nominations. It’s the big’uns too – Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Group of the Year… and how heartwarming that they got a nomination for “Something In Your Mouth”!!
Sam Roberts got four nominations (including two for Video of the Year), Celine and Hedley got three each (including Songwriter of the Year for Hedley, respect), and Feist is still kickin with two nominations. Kardi was awarded a nomination for Single of the Year (“Dangerous”, natch) as well as Rap Recording of the Year (it could be argued that he deserved an Artist of the Year nom over Bryan Adams or KD Lang, I’d say).
The International Album of the Year nominees are kind of weird – Chinese Democracy? Metallica’s Death Magnetic? Jack Johnson’s Sleep Through The Static? Or how about The Stills getting a nomination for New Group of the Year?! That’s so Grammys. Crystal Castles are also in that category, so at least not everything gets my suspicious sideways glance. Oh, and I guess Steven Page’s cocaine arrest didn’t hurt Barenaked Ladies’ chance of getting a Best Children’s Album nomination – but will it hurt their chances of winning?
Yes, these are things I will ponder in depth, day and night, losing sleep until the awards air on March 29. Oh, how I will ponder…
