Alright folks, here are our categories for the 2009 Coldplaying Music Awards.

-pretty self explanatory. Best song that was RELEASED this year. This can be from an album, EP, cover song, anything. But it had to have come out this year.

EP of the Year

-self explanatory

Music Video of the Year

-this can include ANY music video that was released in 2009. (i.e. Strawberry Swing, etc are eligible)

Best debut album of Year

-a band's first EP or LP. Say a band released their debut in 2008, but then released it internationally in 2009 I will count that.

Overrated album of the Year

-so much love, but you don't know why

Underrated album of the Year

-where is the love?

Best album artwork

-eye candy

Album of the Year (Australia)

Album of the Year (Canada)

Music Disaster/Disgrace To Music of 2009

-a facepalm moment/artist of the year

 

Important info:

Voting is open until 12:00am EST on December 6th 2009

For each category you can make up to 5 nominations. You don't have to make 5 nominations if you don't want to, and you don't even have to make a nomination in every category. Also note that each vote is counted equally. If you put Grizzly Bear at no. 1 it is worth as much as Muse at no. 5.

 

After that, the top 5 songs/artists/albums that were nominated in each category will then go to the final round which will open after all the votes have been counted.

 

You can vote in this thread or PM me your vote. Fire away!

Guest howyousawtheworld

I'll put 1 down for most of them

 

Song of the Year

1. Falling Down, March 2009 - Seriously a lot has happened with Oasis for the bad reasons this year but as a final single ever released by this band, it was arguably their finest single. A lot forget about this song - including me. I myself have listened to little Oasis this year compared to the last couple of years, which is a shame but I think I'm in need of their attention again.

 

Music Video of the Year

1. Life In Technicolor II - who doesn't admire that?!

 

Overrated album of the Year

1. Lily Allen, It's Not Me, It's You. Fair play to the girl for changing her sound dramatically as well but she's over hyped WAY too much here in Britain and people should get a grip of themselves.

 

Underrated album of the Year

1. Franz Ferdinand - Tonight. Seriously, what did they do wrong to get so little attention? 5 times better than there half baked 'You Could Have It So Much Better'. Maybe the lack of an obvious single didn't do much good, but still a really funky, ENJOYABLE record, which you have fun listening to!

 

 

Best album artwork

1. Muse - The Resistance. One album definitely not for this one is U2's No Line On The Horizon! That's two really poor album covers in a row from them!

 

Album of the Year (UK)

1. Franz Ferdinand - Tonight

 

Album of the Year (Rest of Europe)

1. U2 - No Line On The Horizon. Great great album. My album of the year all together. Misunderstood and it seems the band put their blood, sweat and tears into this album, returning them to a scene of beautiful creativity after 9 years of just rocking it out!

 

Music Event/Moment of the Year

1. This is completely unbiased but Chris Martin's crowd run during Fix You at Sound Relief gig in Australia in March was brave, stupid but epic as well!

 

Best Live Act/Tour of the Year

1. Viva La Vida Tour - Just plain epic. Coldplay don't need the spectacular stage set ups of Muse or the magnificent scale of U2's concerts to put on a good show for thousands of fans. Something about Viva La Vida Tour just seemed very comforting. They really perfected these shows this year as shown on their Tokyo MTV gig in Febuary.

 

 

Music Disaster/Disgrace To Music of 2009

1. The continued presence of that thing Lady Ga Ga. What a sheer and utter monster this thing is and the less we see o it the better.

2. Actually I'm going against my promise at the start and putting a second one just for this. This Is It tour...... what a waste!
