Well it’s taken me all day counting and re-checking the votes, thank you to all 90 off you who chipped in. To put that into perspective, that’s about a typical days viewing on here when there’s no controversy bubbling away. I’m sure that all the artists involved, whether they were bothered about awards or not, appreciate that so many of you cared enough to send an email. Now go buy their albums, books, art, gig tickets etc….
Oh, you want to know who won? Well, it was fascinating totting up the votes. There were clear winners and extremely tight categories, with a recount needed in two cases.
Best Album 2009
Show Your Workings by New Zealand Story.
Best Live Act 2009
Best Writer 2009
Best Visual Artist 2009
Best Other Performer
Simon Baker & Rebecca Willmott (tie)
I was unable to separate Simon and Rebecca even on a count back of second and third place votes.
Well done to all of you, and to all the nominees and those too who didnt get a mention this time. We have a great range of talent in this area, represented in these awards by comparative veterans and newcomers alike.
