It's back, ONTD! Love complaining about how crappy music this days? How award shows are such a joke now? Or that the nominations for these things always suck! Now's your chance to have your voice heard and come up with the same fucking nominations as the actual ones despite complaining about them year after year; it's the 2013 Grammy Awards!

Last year, this actually worked out well. For the most part, people followed instructions, and I thought it was worth it to post the winning results. Since the actual Grammy award nominations will be announced tonight, I thought I'd officially start this up again.

How it works: Tomorrow, I'll put up the official nominations post. There, you'll list your top 3 nominations for each category, and in about a week, I'll tally the five nominees who received the most nominations from members, and they'll be up for community vote.

How to choose your noms: Basically, you can nominate any song/album/artist you want, with some stipulations:
1) The eligibility year for the 2013 Grammy Awards is Oct. 1, 2011, to Sept. 30, 2012. If you're not sure if something you want to nominate is eligible, then check Wikipedia/Amazon/etc. Please pay attention to this rule, because lots of people don't bother to check before nominating and it's annoying etc etc etc.
2) Songs/albums have to have been released in the US to be eligible. Sorry, Pixie Lott :(
3) The format for nominating is Artist - Song/Album.


I'M SERIOUS ABOUT THESE RULES. If I see just one that doesn't abide by them, your whole ballot is being thrown out. Don't be that person!!!

I'll leave this post open for comments, so you can discuss potential nominees, who you want the real Grammys to nominate, ask questions about nominating, etc. The nominations post will be up soonish.

Yay award season!!!
