3 things stoodout.

  1. Starfield has seemingly been ignored for Music on all these award shows and it puzzles me. Inon Zur killed it imo.

  2. An expansion up for RPG of the year is silly, Lies of P for example should easily have that spot.

  3. Why is it only Sony and Insomniac not providing info for the actual people up for the awards? That stands out a lot looking at the nominees.
