ARIA Awards 2017: full nominations list

An eclectic mix of artists will lead the charge at the 2017 ARIA Awards, with indie pop star Amy Shark and rapper Illy both scoring six nominations each for the main awards.

Following them closely with five a piece are Gang of Youths, A.B. Original, Jessica Mauboy and Sia. Veteran rocker Paul Kelly has an impressive four nominations for his most recent critically-acclaimed album Life is Fine.

Kelly will fight it out for Album of the Year against A.B. Original’s politically-charged breakthrough Reclaim Australia, Shark’s Night Thinker, Gang of Youth’s Go Father in Lightness and Illy’s Two Degrees.

The nominations were announced this morning at an event at the Art Gallery of NSW. The winners of the fine arts and artisan awards were also revealed at the event, with Gang Of Youths and Adrian Breakspear winning Producer of the Year, and Peter Salmon-Lomas winning Best Cover Art and Steve Schram winning Engineer of the Year for their work on Kelly’s album.

The late John Clarke won Best Comedy Release, and Slava Grigoryan won Best Classical album for Bach: Cello Suites Volume I.

The ARIA Awards ceremony is set for November 28 at the Star, and will be broadcast on Channel Nine for the first time in four years.
