New Pantheon Award

From flipping_noises:

Elijah is a panelist for the New Pantheon award and their list of nominations has been released. This award is for artists that have sold under 500,000 copies of their album. (Its predecessor was the Shortlist award.) Each of the 27 panelists got to nominate seven albums, but we don't know who nominated what.

The panelists are going to get this list down to 10, and then the winner is going to be announced in February. I doubt GB will make it through to the final ten, but at least they're in this list! Because it's obvious this isn't ALL the nominations, because the list would have been twice as long, so that must mean that more than one person nominated each album.
