2015 melon music awards - full nomination list!


so, earlier! a post was made on the winners of the top ten artist award for the 2015 melon music award. i figured it wouldn't hurt to make another post including the rest of the nominations as well because some people seemed to be curious about them as a whole.

the facts on this year's show? it will be held on november 7th. it's one of the only shows where nominees / potential winners aren't required to be attending to win. voting for this year's top ten artists category begun at the start of september and ended yesterday kst. the eligibility for this year's show was: october 2014 - september 2015, ect. (also, a note that the current standings in voting for all categories were the top three in voting rankings so far when the screencaps were taken and they're probably the same now but they could change.) international fans (unless living in korea) are not able to vote because it requires a korean phone number to do so this year.

the breakdown for the criteria is as follows: for the album, artist, newcomer and and song categories only 30% of the final vote goes toward the winner. the rest of the decision is based on 70% digital sales. for the netizen populartiy award, 60% of the final vote goes toward the winning decision and 40% digital sales. for every other category, 30% of the final vote goes toward deciding the winner with 40% digital sales and 30% judges panel voting goes toward the winner.

[oh, and a note on how the top ten artists! like said above: the top ten artists are winners of the category whichs means that they're all getting a bonsang no matter what. the decision was made based on a criteria of 80% digital sales / 20% online voting and it's for a combination of sales from all of their releases made during the period of eligibility, so not just one song. all of the other categories, minus artist of the year and album of the year, are based on single songs. an up to date (as of the deadline for eligibility) list of digital sales numbers can be found here!]

For the criteria break down

Artist, Album, Song, Newcomer are 70% digital 30% vote

Netizen 40% digital sales 60% vote

Almost everything else is a combination of 40% digital sales, 30% judges panel, and 30% popular vote except Song Writer and MBC which 100% judges

ahhh, thanks. i was looking for that criteria too and totally couldn't find it anywhere.

OP You wrote JYJ instead of JYP in best dance song and song of the year.
I know is probably not going to happen but I want Lizzy to win best trot song, if only for how funny is an idol going solo with that. And well, the song and MV are A+.
Yay! 15& and Baek A Yeon are nominated!
Hyukoh for artist of the year!!!
byeolbyeol 23rd-Oct-2015 03:12 pm (UTC)
lmao that's what i get for getting distracted when typing. thanks for pointing it out!!!!

how the fuck is exo's individual singles ranking over any of bb's? that doesn't make any sense and vips need to vote their fucking asses off.
katzenlibrary 23rd-Oct-2015 03:04 pm (UTC)
EXO-L is a fearsome force. If it's based on online voting and sales, I wouldn't be shocked that EXO is in first. EXO-Ls bought a ton and voted a ton...
horichansenpai 23rd-Oct-2015 02:55 pm (UTC)
No FTI for best rock song? Disappointing. "Pray" was amazing.
juhli 23rd-Oct-2015 03:10 pm (UTC)
yeah, I was looking for them in the category :/
carra_mia 23rd-Oct-2015 03:00 pm (UTC)
Wait a minute, why is BB nominated for the album? Didn't they release just singles?
katzenlibrary 23rd-Oct-2015 03:05 pm (UTC)
Single albums. I guess it still count since each one had more than one song...
katzenlibrary 23rd-Oct-2015 03:06 pm (UTC)
Yes!! My sweet Red Velvet holding their own against veterans! Mama's so proud!~
juhli 23rd-Oct-2015 03:16 pm (UTC)
Wow, look at Ikon already being nominated for the popularity award.

I didn't know the Trot genre was such a female-reigned one...slay ladies!

Sometimes Korea's taste is so random, Worth it by Fifth Harmony?

Exid is being robbed with Up&Down not being nominated for Song of the year...I get the song is too old to be nominated, but it really is the song of the year for me.
sub_divided 24th-Oct-2015 12:47 am (UTC)
I get it, Worth It (and Uptown Funk and Bang Bang) sounds like a Kpop song.
hagar_tammaa 23rd-Oct-2015 03:18 pm (UTC)
My baby Mino is nominated YAY!!!

I hope he gets to perform it!!
srybutno 23rd-Oct-2015 03:23 pm (UTC)
big bang should have aoty and soty in the bag, album could go both ways (?) like i know exodus w/o the repackage has at least 2 million dls so if fans vote a lot, they could win it ig idk m and 22 also did really well i'm just not sure if they want to give the 3 main awards to big bang

Edited at 2015-10-23 03:29 pm (UTC)
byeolbyeol 23rd-Oct-2015 03:34 pm (UTC)
they definitely won't, like i don't even see them giving two of the main awards to the same person. you're not required to be there to win but they still need to ~spread it out a bit, i guess? i'm guessing that bb has a better shot at soty and exo at album? aoty is trickier... i mean, tbh, who knows, they could end up three way splitting and having someone else like hyukoh or shinee get album but...
kar0n 23rd-Oct-2015 03:36 pm (UTC)
omg loco's on there twice !!!!!
xxhna 23rd-Oct-2015 03:39 pm (UTC)
the top 3 albums are all really good with different musical styles. this will be interesting.
sakuragirl24 23rd-Oct-2015 03:46 pm (UTC)
i need gfriend to win the rookie award
hyukoh should get the rest tbh
gathyou 23rd-Oct-2015 03:46 pm (UTC)
Baek Ah Yeon!!! I hope she'll win an award, it would be fantastic
gray_fairy 23rd-Oct-2015 03:56 pm (UTC)
Some fandoms are so damn lazy to vote tbh. People can talk shit about EXO-L but you can't deny that at least they're a really invested fandom. I thought VIPs were pretty invested too but I guess I was wrong. Not to mention shawols and inspirits' lazy asses lmao.
ChulaSinMoolah 23rd-Oct-2015 05:54 pm (UTC)
VIPs are known to be lazy though?
leopolitan 23rd-Oct-2015 04:11 pm (UTC)
oh wow i feel like that mad clown song came out years ago. im surprised its winning by such a huge margin
