After the announcement of this year’s nominations a few weeks ago, everything led to believe this would be the year of Portishead, with two newcomers, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes gathering the awards left free by the Bristol trio. However, the recount so far does not confirm this initial trend.

After the jump, we give a quick look at those categories where competition is at its fiercest. Among them, the biggest surprise is the most recent one, “Guilty Pleasure”, where international fan clubs of Aussie sisters The Veronicas have movilized their members to vote; followers of Britney, also nominated, fought back , putting the star ahead on the race and leaving far behind initial favorites such as Alphabeat and Duffy. Interest for this category has been so high, that total voters nearly reach 700, doubling in number any of the others. There are still ten days to go before official awards and music poll’s results are announced. You can vote here. May the best one win!!

Tras el anuncio de las nominaciones semanas atrás, todo parecía indicar que este sería el año de Portishead; con dos nuevos valores, Bon Iver y Fleet Foxes acaparando los premios que el trío de Bristol dejaran libres, pero los resultados de las votaciones hasta la fecha no parecen confirmarlo.

Tras el salto, damos un repaso a aquellas categorías donde la competición se encuentra al rojo vivo. Entre ellas, la mayor sorpresa sin duda es la mas reciente, “Guilty Pleasure”, donde los clubs de fans internacionales de las australianas Verónicas han llamado al voto a sus miembros; los seguidores de Britney, también nominada, contraatacaron y van en cabeza, dejando muy atrás a los a priori favoritos Alphabeat y Duffy. Tal ha sido el interés por esta categoría que los votantes se aproximan ya a los 700, doblando en número a los de cualquier otra.
