The countdown is on to the 22nd annual ARIA Awards, held at Sydney’s Acer Arena. With the awards ceremony getting underway shortly, we’re just reminding you that our live updates of the award winners will take place from 7:30 AEST tonight with a post that will update throughout the (delayed) awards telecast. All the winners as they happen, as they’re announced on Australian TV on the east coast (we can’t bring you live updates from Acer Arena as the ARIAs are, as always, under strict embargo). We’re predicting a big night for both The Presets and Gabriella Cilmi, but we’re also tipping Sam Sparro won’t be going home empty handed and neither will Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu. Good luck to all nominees in the 2008 ARIA Awards.
*Readers in Queensland, South Australia, Northern Territory and Western Australia are advised that the coverage on auspOp will start at 7:30pm Australian Eastern Summer time.
