The erics - only one day of voting left! Fancy a final update on how everyone's doing?
As voting draws to a close, once again well over 120,000 have been cast, with the hotly contested Best Irish Album garnering in excess of 27,000 votes alone. But who'll win?!? Well, we're not going to tell you that until our Awards Night next Wednesday (you may have heard us banging on about it. Did you know you can come along for the larfs? More details further down the page)
We can tell you that Delorentos (Little Sparks), Heathers (Kingdom), Spook of the Thirteenth Lock (The Brutal Here and Now), and The Riptide Movement (Keep On Keepin' On) are all battling it out for first place in that category.
The next most popular category so far is yet another music one - Best Irish Music Act, with Mick Flannery, The Coronas, Delorentos and Heathers occupying the top spots.
Raunchiest Radio Voice... Put it this way, that aural extravaganza that was Newstalk's Sile Seoige reading out a tractor manual on Today FM's KC Show a few weeks back sent listeners over the edge altogether… Spin's Brian Maher and Dara Quilty are also among the leaders, as is FM104's Sean Munsanje - who just so happens to be hosting our Awards Night. Which we may have mentioned.
Bachelor Of The Year sees Niall Breslin, Spin's Riyadh Khalaf, Robert Sheehan, Rob Kearney and Mick Flannery (it's always the quiet ones…) continue to woo the public, while their female counterparts comprise of Daniella Moyles, Wallis Bird, Roz Purcell, Angela Scanlon and Emma Quinlan.
It's neck and neck between Love/Hate, Moone Boy, The Savage Eye and Uploaded in the Best Irish TV Show category, with Dermot Whelan, Ryan Tubridy, Aidan Gillen and everyone's favourite weather woman Jean Byrne all in with a chance to land the title of Best TV Personality.
Votes cast by fans of Foil, Arms and Hog, David O'Doherty, Eric Lalor and A Betrayal of Penguins have ratcheted up an impressive five figure sum in the Stand Up Comedian category, while in Best Theatrical Production land it's still all to play for between The Boys of Foley Street, Da, Monster/Clock and Death of a Tradesman.
Movie of the Year counts What Richard Did, Argo, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises among its leaders; Body and Soul, Brucie at the RDS, Electric Picnic and Westlife's farewell gigs at Croker are all faring well under Live Event of the Year; while the crème de la crème of the Twitteratti include Irish Mammies @IrishMammies, Stephen Byrne @3sixty5days, Not the real Jim Corr @therealjimcorr, Niall Horan @NiallOfficial and Conor Behan @platinumjones.
'Ah Heyohr, Leave Eh Ouh!' Best WTF moments... It will come as no surprise that the top four spots are being occupied by Rosanna Davison's Playboy Cover, Late Late Show 50th anniversary show/piss up, Mick Wallace's recent outfit choices, and Susan Boyle's album hashtag #susanalbumparty… Two of those contestants are on the same percentage so anything can happen.
And to the biggie. Who is in the running to be your 'Ledgebag' of the Year? It's all about the athletes, with Katie Taylor and Challenge 126's Mike Sheridan and Brian Maher with 1% between them. Or will Chris O'Dowd or Alex 'Nil' Meehan off the Late Late Toy Show scoop the prize???
You have just over 24 hours to make a difference as voting closes at 6pm sharp tomorrow (January 9th). We will then announce the winners at our - yes - Awards Night next Wednesday, January 16th, in The Village.
If you can't join us on the night, we'll also be posting a list of all of this year's winners, long with quotes and a photo of them clutching their award with glee come Thursday January 17th.
Delorentos, Heathers, Bouts and Leanne Harte are all confirmed to play extended sets at the event. Tickets are only a tenner and are available here, so snap 'em up while you can.
We also have five pairs of tickets to the night to give away, so head on over to our competitions section and throw yisser hat in the ring!
