Justin Bieber, Frank Ocean, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Score O Music Awards Nominations

9e530948f34486990a0f43ded8c916b9 Justin Bieber, Frank Ocean, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Score O Music Awards Nominations

The 2013 O Music Awards nominations are out. And reading the list will handily remind you that you are one of the olds. Unless you’re not one of the olds, in which case, you’ll probably hashtag the eff out of these nominations. Because the awards celebrate “the best in digital music,” so of course they act like the trendy cousin and drop a bunch of inside jokes that the Grammys and Billboard Music Awards don’t get but laugh at anyway. Case in point: there are categories called Our Favorite Musical Cat, Fan Army FTW and Too Much Ass For TV. We don’t know what any of that has to do with celebrating “the best in digital music,” but we do know that Frank Ocean is up for the Ass one, as well as for Must-Follow Artist On Twitter.

Ocean’s two nominations tie him with Beck for the most nods. It’s ironic that Beck is honored by the digital-centric awards, since his most recent release was sheet music (which is why he’s up for Analog Genius). Justin Bieber is nominated for Fan Army FTW for the Beliebers, facing off against the legion of stans like Demi Lovato‘s Lovatics, Beyonce‘s Beyhive, Ed Sheeran‘s Sheerios and Selena Gomez‘s Selenators. Breakout rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis is up for Best Web-Born Artist, along with Kitty, Baauer, FIDLAR and Angel Haze, although we don’t really think those last two fit in that field. 

By far our favorite category, though, is Next Big Scene. The pseudo-real sub-genres with the chance to gain notoriety for six months before being laughed at in 12 are: Beats, Cloud-rap, Post-dubstep, Seapunk and Vaporwave. We don’t know what vaporwave is, but we’re guessing it has something to do with e-cigarettes.

Fans can vote at OMusicAwards.com, so get to making vaporwave the vibe of 2013. The awards air via livestream (obvs) on June 19 at 7 p.m. ET. Check out the full list of nominees here.
