Hmmm very cool, I really hope that at least Michael Hollick wins because he did an outstanding performance as Niko. I wonder if I could somehow get tickets to this thing, it's being filmed like three miles from my apartment :P

Props to Rockstar. Best soundtrack? Maybe not though - a few good songs, sure, but a good 85% of them were shit, imo.

I'm with Rappo, Michael Hollick is an awesome voice actor - really put everything he had into the role. :)

Wow! at 8 nominations ! and definitely game of the year. and i somewhat agree with Earthbound on the soundtrack. GTA didn't have good soundtrack after Vice City.

Yea, bet they delayed it so they could release it later when they have won all their awards... Makes the game have a bigger release. Might even find the annoying awards printed on the cover >.<
