It'd be crazy to not give Marianas Trench AOTY out of those choices. I wish they'd just blow up in the US already. I don't get how they haven't.

Have they done much with Ever After in America yet? I think with the American release, they'll try to get stuff to radio and get their name out there more. They should be huge, though.

Rooting for Grimes to win Breakout Artist of the Year. She's been busting her balls to get where she is.

I know they did a tour that went pretty well and I heard them on the radio a ton (might have been a Canadian station though).

What the hell is the difference between Alternative Album of the Year and Adult Alternative Album of the Year?

An american equivalent would be something like Brand New being alternative and Elvis Costello being adult alternative.

actually really happy to see Hey Ocean! being included as breakout artist, their album IS is amazing.
Also, Stars should be nominated for way more awards.

I'm so glad to see both Hey Ocean! and Arkells get nominated, those were two of my favorite groups last year. Really hoping Hey Ocean! does some big things in 2013.

Can someone tell me how Japandroids, a record that was rated in at least the top 10 in almost every music magazine/website globally, has only one nomination? ... And how are they not in the Rock category?

Fucking Canucks, more proof that nominations depend more on label, sales, and brand rather than music

I can understand that now, but they had the categories reversed when I first looked at it. The likes of Metric, Japandroids, and Stars were all in the "Adult" section, which essentially made no sense. But all is forgiven now.
