50 Cent Tops Billboard Awards Finalists


Rapper 50 Cent leads the finalists for the 2003 Billboard Awards, which will be presented Dec. 10 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The Shady/Aftermath/Interscope artist is a contender in six categories, including artist of the year, album of the year ("Get Rich or Die Tryin'"), R&B/Hip-Hop artist of the year and Hot 100 single of the year ("In Da Club").

R&B stars R. Kelly and Beyoncé are each finalists in five categories, while Sean Paul and the Dixie Chicks are contenders in four.

Jive's Kelly is up for artist of the year, R&B/Hip-Hop artist of the year, Hot 100 male artist of the year, Hot 100 producer of the year and Hot 100 single of the year ("Ignition"). Columbia's Beyoncé is a finalist in the new artist of the year, R&B/Hip-Hop new artist of the year, Hot 100 female artist of the year and Hot 100 single of the year ("Crazy in Love" featuring Jay-Z) categories.

"Crazy in Love" also finds Beyoncé and Jay-Z as finalists in a new category: digital track of the year. Other finalists are Black Eyed Peas ("Where Is the Love?"), Coldplay ("Clocks") and OutKast ("Hey Ya!").

VP/Atlantic dancehall star Sean Paul will contend for awards in the artist of the year, rap artist of the year, Hot 100 male artist of the year and Hot 100 single of the year ("Get Busy") categories. Monument/Columbia trio the Dixie Chicks are up for duo/group artist of the year, country artist of the year, Hot 100 duo/group artist of the year and album of the year ("Home").

Other multiple-category finalists include Chingy, Justin Timberlake and 3 Doors Down (three each) and matchbox twenty, Norah Jones, Shania Twain, Aaliyah, Floetry, Linkin Park and Audioslave (two each).

The awards show will be broadcast live on Fox at 8 p.m. ET (tape-delayed on the West Coast). The winners reflect the weekly charts published by Billboard from December 2002 and November 2003.

Billboard Awards
 
Shania is nominated in several categories, what they are I am not sure. I did read an article saying 50 Cent is the leading contender. How sad is it when a thug is up for a lot of awards. What does that say for pop culture in this country.

Well, for the country artist catergory Shania should win if based on sales. I think she has sold more than the Chicks if they count worldwide sales. As far as Album of the Year, I don't know, if it's a big 50 Cent show they might give it to him, I don't know how much the rest have sold. But it's about time Shania has won an American award. All of her awards she has recieved this year has been Canadian except the Flameworthy award and we won't even go there, they were as bad as the AMA's.

yeah agree.. but anyways.. THIS time she IS nominated and she WILL win :p :p

I just checked the Billboard charts to see how many albums these other people have sold. 50 Cent has only sold 5 million, or at least that is what he is certified for. I couldn't find the Chicks or Norah Jones. Anyone know these? I checked the Country chart and Toby has only sold 3 million, but I couldn't find the others. So far I think Shania should win in both catergories. I don't think anyone against her has sold more than 10 million. I guess if she doesn't win, we know what's going on.

GetchaGood 12-01-2003 04:10 PM

Norah has sold around 7.5 million and is certified 8x platinum...

I totally agree!!!! Shania should have had the sexy video award as well. Faith sexier than Shania..come on.

All the American award shows have been a lame joke. The ACMs, she was not eligible. The AMA's, you got one if you showed up on TV, it didn't matter if your album flopped, and you didn't tour. All you had to do is pump your fist on TV. The CMA's another setup, where the nominees were picked to assure the victory of the favorites of the industry. I don't expect anything different at the Billboards. It seems the awards are for sale these days.

The only thing Shania will get is a few Diamond awards.

and she is nowhere in sight. Look at the nominees, it is a sick testament to our pop culture, look who we hold up as role models. :( 50 Cent, and R. Kelly -are in court for felonies. Justin is a wannabe hip hop star, all his "coolness" comes off as a big act.

Our pop culture needs a makeover. Artists like Shania are considered not cool.

tankandmaddie 12-01-2003 04:37 PM

Don't worry, there is about 50 million fans out there that think Shania is very cool!!!:cool:

You never know, the Billboards might be different. I hope she does get her diamond awards. But the thing that wouldn't make sense is that if she got her UP! diamond award that means she has sold over 10 million. Well, if she doesn't win any of these other awards with her selling over 10 million and her compitition selling only 5 million, wouldn't that seem kind of odd. She should win, but if she doesn't........................................... ..........


HELL HAVE NO FURY LIKE A SHANIA FAN!!!!!!!! :mad:

Yeah, she started that nonsense at the CCMA when she won for IGGG, saying she didn't deserve it. The audience was yelling back "yes you do" :D
