The nominees for the 2014 JUNO Awards, aka Canada’s answer to the GRAMMYs, were announced today, and surprise surprise: Canada’s biggest modern rock band, Arcade Fire, gathered up the most nods. With 6 nominations in total, all due to the group’s disco-inspired Reflektor that dropped in 2013, the titles they’re up for include JUNO Fan Choice Award, Single Of The Year, and the coveted Album Of The Year.
It was a big year for Canadian artists, with not just Arcade Fire up for a ton of awards, but other famous Canucks as well. Michael Buble and Serena Ryder both boast 5 nominations each, while coming up with 4 nods are acts like Celine Dion, Drake, Hedley, and Tegan and Sara. Naturally, Justin Bieber is also included in the nominees, as well as Avril Lavigne, Robin Thicke, and Walk Off The Earth.
The 2014 JUNO Awards air on March 30th live from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
