Nickelback leads Juno nominations
TORONTO (CP) – In a year when Canadian musicians were hyped around the world for their cutting-edge sound, the Junos played it safe on Wednesday, nominating perennial favourites like Nickelback and Diana Krall.
The Alberta rockers are up for a leading six Junos, including album of the year for All the Right Reasons and single of the year for Photograph.
Juno darling Diana Krall and boyish crooner Michael Buble tied with five nominations apiece; both are up for artist of the year, fan’s choice and album of the year.
Krall’s seasonal effort, Christmas Songs, and Buble’s standards-filled It’s Time will compete against the Nickelback CD as well as 219 Days by Canadian Idol winner Kalan Porter and Under the Lights by Idol runner-up Rex Goudie.
Wednesday’s nominations bring Krall’s career Juno nomination total to 16. She’s won six times.
Buble’s nods come as no surprise. It’s Time was the country’s top-selling CD by a Canadian artist in 2005, according to Neilsen Soundscan
Other multiple nominees include rock icon Neil Young, Porter, and Hedley, fronted by another Idol runner-up – Jacob Hoggard.
And, in an echo of the recent Grammy Awards, where U2 and Green Day scored success over two years for one album, several Canadian artists made the Juno cut for work that was lauded last year.
Feist won best new artist and best alternative album at the 2005 awards, but is back competing for single of the year with her track Inside and Out.
As well, Arcade Fire lost last year in the alternative album category for Funeral but is up this year for songwriter and video awards – for material from the same record.
The repeat nominations are possible because the eligibility window spans Sept. 1, 2004 to Nov. 16, 2005. The acts squeaked through because either a song, album or video was released during that period.
Nickelback’s nominations come despite middling reviews for All the Right Reasons.
Still, the album sold exceptionally well, giving the band a No. 1 debut in Canada and the U.S.
Canada had not had a homegrown rock band debut on the Billboard chart since Bachman-Turner Overdrive did so in 1974.
The band is currently on a cross-Canada sold-out tour.
International album of the year nods went to 50 Cent, Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Gwen Stefani and Kelly Clarkson. The category is determined by sales figures.
Bands like Wolf Parade, Cuff the Duke and Matthew Barber – who received raves from the international music press – were notably absent from the nomination list.
Some other buzz bands, including New Pornographers, Broken Social Scene, Hot Hot Heat and Metric were relegated to the alternative album category despite mainstream appeal.
The nominees are selected based on a combination of sales and votes from the 2,000-plus members of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
The Junos will be handed out in Halifax on April 2. Coldplay, Nickelback, Bedouin Soundclash and Broken Social Scene are scheduled to perform.
