As you know we hear about all these crappy music awards that are going around these days. So i thought UG could do our own, now this thread is just for nominating the shortlisted bands/artists/songs whatever any way each award will have 5 shortlisted choices who will be selected on the basis of a nomination and a second, you may only nominate or second once in each catagory. E.g. you could nominate Fall out boy for best band...but couldn't come back and second green day later one but you could nominate fall out boy for best band and second green day for best live act in you wanted.
Also you can nominate for the same band in different qualities so you could nominate muse, for best band, best european band and best live act if you wanted.

Here are the awards:
Best Band - any band any nation
Best European Band - same as above but europe only
Best North American Band - Canada or the US only
Best international band - for want of a better term, any band outside of North America or Europe is eligable
Best Live Act - whose concert rocked your socks
Best Male artist - obvious really anything from Justin Timberlake to Paverotti to Steve Vai is elligable here
Best Female Artist - same as above but minus penis and add boobies
Best Album
Best Single - it has to be a released single not just a track by a band
Best Music Video
Best Guitarist
Best Bassist
Best singer
Best Drummer
Best Songwriter
Biggest contribution to Music.

I'll leave this open until all nominations are secured, then the voting thread will be open. Have fun everyone!

p.s. if you have any other ideas for catagories please PM me to consider.
oh and please label your nominations clearly,

No identifiable catagory. No nomination.

Also don't restrict yourself, hell if you want your best songwriter to be mozart go for it.

EDIT: Since Luke's a rule-changing Nazi ignore me.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
