The complete nominations list of the forthcoming 25th ARIA Music Awards 2011, have been announced, which will be held at Allphones Arena in Sydney.

The upcoming much awaited 25th ARIA Music Awards for the year 2011 will be held at Allphones Arena on November 27, 2011 in Sydney. The complete list of nominations for ARIA awards have been released, before the winners will be announced in Sydney. There has been a tough contest for the award, as there multiple nods bagged by the music stars. The stars like Gotye, Drapht and folk rocker band ‘Boy & Bear’ have been tied with seven nods each.

The debut album ‘Moonfire’ by the band ‘Boy & Bear’, which has been critically acclaimed, is competing with the number one album ‘The Life of Riley’ of Drapht and the single ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’. However, ‘Making Mirrors’ of Gotye has been excluded for the awards, as it was released after the voting has been closed. ‘Making Mirrors’ has surpassed ‘Stranglehold’ of British singer Adele on the top of the charts. Besides, the previous winners Eskimo Joe and Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu have bagged six nominations each.

As per the reports, three new categories have been included, for the people to vote for the winner for ‘Most Popular Australian Artist’, Most Popular International Artist’ and ‘Most Popular Australian Live Act’. However, it has not yet been decided, which television network would air the telecast of 25th Aria Music Awards 2011 this year, after the ratings have been poor over past two years on Nine Network and Channel Ten. Also, at the award ceremony, Gotye, Boy and Bear band and Drapht have been confirmed as the performers.
