Yep, pretty much the same thing (except APRA has members from both New Zealand and Australia, and holds separate awards for the latter. Those run slightly more mainstream; a lot of repeated Sia love etc.). And yeah, that shortlist is phenomenal. The first time the shortlist has gone completely misandrist I think, and no reason to turn back really. If you wanted talent talking about talent, check out this little feature on the shortlistees, which includes Chelsea being honoured by Queen/Goddess/Light Of My Life Bic herself.
