JUNO Award Nominations: My Picks

The nominations for the 2013 JUNO Awards have been announced. There is a wide range of nominees, but I definitely have my favorites. At this point I haven't put on my 'who will win' hat, just 'who I want to win' hat.

If these people win, I will be elated (on the inside, outer signs of joy are not really my thing).

Close category. I am also routing for Serena Ryder. Lovely girl.
