My thoughts:

- Quite disappointed with the lack of Ocean Alley nominations. Snubbed big time;
- The Presets, What So Not, Golden Features and Hayden James were so overlooked, especially in the Dance category;
- Hockey Dad, Skegss, and The Rubens were overlooked, especially in the Best Group and/or Rock categories;
- Surprised Vance Joy's album wasn't nominated for Album Of The Year;
- Artists such as Ruby Fields, Alex The Astronaut, Alex Lahey, Jack River, Mallrat, Tkay Maidza, Julia Jacklin should have been nominated under Best Female category instead of Sia for only being nominated on a FRENCH DJ's track as a feature artist;
- So many good Aussie hip-hop/urban artists overlooked for the Urban Award (e.g. Manu Crook$, Baker Boy, Remi, B Wise);
- Fisher - Losing It is a banger 🔥;
- We have all these big international artists and yet P!nk will probably win again;
- Amy Shark will dominate on the night.
Wow I really have lost touch with Australian music. So many acts that I have absolutely no idea about. Not ARIAs fault, mine. Just amazed with how far removed I am with Australian music at the moment.
Cheers for posting it Trav, I was up far too late last night to do it myself

Part of me thinks that it's silly that Amy Shark is nominated again for Album Of The Year considering there's content shared between her two releases, but then I remember Gotye won Best Male Artist two years in a row in a similar sense...clearly they should give these a longer wait Hope she doesn't shut out Courtney because her album is great. Sia also already won Best Female for a throwaway inspirational hit last year so I really hope it doesn't happen again.

Best Rock is refreshingly youthful and diverse, wish I could say the same about the non-rural category, which aside from Mojo Juju is completely stuck in 2011. So many artists deserve a look-in instead of 360 and Eso.

Also I like that the Song Of The Year award is sponsored by Apple Music because it could basically be called the Spotify Hot Hits Australia award International is interesting solely because it is the first year time in 6 years that it can't be won by One Direction or associated. The only other artists that have won it are Mumford & Sons and P!nk. Ed Sheeran being re-nominated for the same album is dumb, and now I bet that it'll still sell well enough next year to be nominated again Post Malone having his 2016 album listed is also dumb, and More Life getting a look-in this year and not last year...is dumb

Also it's interesting that Producer of the Year & Engineer of the Year have almost the same nominations but a different result.
Agree with about 95% of everything Hijinx said... and would just like to add that Wafia, CXLOE, Ivy Adara, KIAN, Baker Boy and Gretta Ray were ALL snubbed for Breakthrough Artist. Quite a surprise that Sheppard, The Rubens, and Conrad Sewell weren't nominated for more awards, but I will take comfort in the fact that each of those artists have won one or more awards at past ARIA Awards Nights.

Still the Triple J awards in my eyes 😂😂
Yeah billbeast you're not wrong... Most of the ARIA Breakthrough Artist nominees have originated from Triple J Unearthed or have obtained high rotation on Triple J. There are very few nominees for this award who aren't Triple J artists. (I am very happy that Triple J does so much to get Aussie artists off the ground though).
