MAMA Nominations

So a while ago it was announced that MKMF was cancelled this year. Well, looks like Mnet really just renamed it and changed some things around to the show! MKMF is now called MAMA aka Mnet Asian Music Awards. And Yes, I did laugh at the new name Lol!

If you’re wondering how these artists got nominated here’s the criteria: Album sales and album charts from 15th October 2008 till 22nd October 2009

Anyways..SNSD was nominated 6 categories!

SNSD for Artist of the Year
GEE for Song of the Year
SNSD for Female Group of the Year
GEE for Dance Music of the Year
By Myself for OST of the Year
Jjarajajja for TROT song of the Year

Now I personally think that SNSD has a great chance of winning the first 4 categories IF the award show was fair but the Mnet 20’s choice awards made me lose faith of any SM artist ever winning a Mnet award with the SM-Mnet fued still going on. Seriously, if no SM artist wins an award at the show then it’ll prove that Mnet just nominated them so fans won’t complain about the show being unfair & BS. But still, you can’t really tell what Mnet will do. They let Suju win 2 awards for “Sorry sorry” on Mnet countdown yet “Gee” never won once & they even put “TMYW” up against 2PM’s “I hate you” and SNSD lost by like barely a point?! Now Mnet is totally messing with SM.

Anyways here’s some other categories that I had some opinions on.

Newcomer (Male) – BEAST, Supreme Team, MBLAQ, ChungRim, TaeGoon

Really surprised that even though MBLAQ & BEAST just debuted last week that they were nominated but I guess they didn’t have many people to choose from. I’m thinking Taegoon will win this.

Newcomer (Female) – 2NE1, After School, T-ara, 4Minute, f(x)

This can be said as the easiest category to determine? Lol Even though I’m not a 2ne1 fan, they totally earned this award and I would be shocked if they didn’t win this award.

Male singer – Drunken Tiger, Rain, Lee Seung Chul, GDragon, MC Mong

Now some complaints I heard about this was that why was Rain nominated? What about Lee Seunggi? Well I’m guessing LSG’s album wasn’t promoted very well & Rain did have promotions in late last year. But who really cares cause we all know GD will probably win this award.

Male Group – 2PM, Big Bang, Super Junior, SG Wannabe, SS501

I have lots to say on this category! Why was BB nominated? Some fans have said that BB’s last album came out in OCT. 2008 & plus they had promotions in Japan plus the lollipop digital song & BB’s solo activities. Well if this is true, why wasn’t DBSK nominated? They were active late last year just like BB plus they released a full album in Japan. Also, BB solo activites wouldn’t count as a group activity even though they’re still using the BB name. And did you notice some people missing? Well looks like Shinee & 2AM didn’t make the cut. Shinee missing is the biggest dissappointment. The boys were active last year plus the mini album promotions this year. Yes they may have very little chance of winning but still, they desevered a nomination. And I’ve been hearing a lot of 2PM or BB should win but what about Super Junior? If you look at album sales, they’ve sold the most amongst all the other competitors and Sorry Sorry was a HUGE HIT. Yes 2PM was very popular & won many awards but that didn’t really show in the album sales. I think Super Junior will win this BUT if Mnet is being an A** then I’d give it to 2PM or SS501.

Female Group – Davichi, Brown Eyed Girls, So Nyeo Shi Dae, Jewelry, KARA

Now I think a lot of people know that SNSD should win this award  b/c they owned this year. If SNSD doesn’t win I think it should go to KARA who has been very active this year.

Ballad/R&B music award – Kim Jong Kook (Today More Than Yesterday), Kim TaeWoo (Love Rain), Bobby Kim (Love, the guy), Park Hyo Shin (After Love), Baek Ji Young (Like being Hit)

KTW anyone? Lol Love his song & he’s a great singer =) Plus he’s been winning lots of awards lately!

O.S.T Award – Baek Ji Young (Don’t Forget – IRIS), Lee Seung Chul (No more love like this – Blue Love Story), T-Max (Paradize – Boys Over Flowers), Tiffany (I’m Along – JaMyungGo), SS501 (Because I’m Stupid – Boys Over Flowers)

As much as I’d like Tiffany to win this award, I think it should go to SS501. That OST was a BIG HIT! but I’m wondering about something..If this counted from Oct. 2008 where’s Taeyeon’s OST “Can you hear me”? It was released in October and was really popular. Why is this song missing from the nominations?

Okay that’s my thoughts on some of the nominations. I’ve got to say even though I know that SM artists have very little chance of winning, I hope I’m wrong and Mnet will be FAIR! But gosh something just tells me it won’t happen. But us SM fans still got the GDAs!! =)
