As every year the lists of nominees are filled with Eurovision stars only proving that Russia indeed does send their biggest guns to Eurovision.
Serebro was once again nominated for the best group, Dima Bilan for the best song (Не молчи), as was Svetlana Loboda (К чёрту любовь), Polina Gagarina for the best video (Я не буду), with Alexey Vorobyov (Сумасшедшая), Sergey Lazarev (Это все она) and Dan Balan (Плачь).
Dima Bilan and Sergey Lazarev once again battled against each other in the best male singer category and Sergey won the second year in a row. Eye on Egor Kreed who could be the next one with Eurovision glory....
Ani Lorak - these days a persona non grata at home in Ukraine - was nominated for the best female artist again with Polina Gagarina, but Ёлка won this time around.
Nyusha, also a very possible future Eurovision name was nomintaed for the best dance video, as was Egor Kreed.
Emin was nominated for the best acting role in a movie. Svetlana Loboda also got a nomination in some other video category (Пора домой (Турция, Стамбул).
And then there was also a category and nomination for the sleaziest videos. Like this one: Только секс. Only in Russia.....
