AKB48 Owns The 26th Japan Gold Disc Awards

The 26th Japan Gold Disc Awards were presented in Roppongi on Friday. The awards, which were established in 1987, are based on actual CD and DVD sales, so it comes as no surprise that the Artist of the Year was idol group AKB48. They ended up receiving a total of 10 awards, tying for the all-time record that Arashi set two years ago.

"Btw they should just change the Asian thing to Korean since all the Asian recepients are Koreans? xD"

Word. Even though Jay Chou released an amazing album last year, apparently nobody gave a damn. Mando-pop is being so forgotten, dnw.

And big big big congrats to Yasusu and my beloved AKB48. Sooo deserved.

Well they don't care about Cpop in Japan xD
Sad to say =(

party rock anthem was playing in practically every club
nekobot01 27th-Jan-2012 07:07 pm (UTC)
It's interesting that the Best Single and Best by Download are so different. I'm assuming it has to do with the AKB48 practice of releasing a billion different editions to encourage people to buy more.

I wonder how long that way of milking the fans will last...


Soundtrack Album of the Year:

Yes. That movie was pure campy fun! I'm glad to see Japan, at least, understood Xtina's fabulousness.

Are these awards based on sales? Because if not, I'm seriously side eyeing almost every category.

If they were based on sales, I would be questioning almost every category to be honest. But if they weren't, same anyways LOL XD.
