In light of Mnet’s recent screwup with MAMA 2017 voting, I am here to announce all of the categories EXO are nominated for!
Best Male Group
Best Music Video (Power)
Best Dance Performance Male Group (KoKoBop)
Best OST (Chanyeol x Punch - Stay With Me)
Best Collaboration (Baekhyun x Soyou - Rain AND Chen x DynamicDuo - Nosedive)
Album of the Year (daesang)
Artist of the Year (daesang)
Song of the Year (daesang)
Once traffic on the website dies down and you are able to connect to Mnet servers, you will be voting at mwave.me for the aforementioned categories.
THIS IS A NEW WEBSITE! This means that any previous Mnet accounts you made are now obsolete (including the ones you used to vote during the Mwave Music Chart Poll). You will have to re-register all email addresses and make new accounts. You will also be able to register a new account with the following social media websites!
I know that things are frustrating right now with this new website rollout, so don’t stress if you have to skip this first full day of voting. I’ll make an announcement here when I am able to access the website myself, so you can hold off making accounts/voting until then. Once I am able to access the website, I will proceed to make a tutorial on how to vote as well, so stay tuned for that.
Okay, I’ve talked about this before in a big post about the whole movie but it deserves its own shoutout
Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson’s original score for the movie is wonderful, awe inspiring, tension inducing and catchy, full of nods to the oldschool Bond soundtracks. It is everything an original movie score should be.
Not only that, but the licensed music used in this - it just FITS so well! Money For Nothing, Free Bird, Give It Up. Even the songs by artists I don’t particularly like such as Take That or Dizzee Rascal. they work so, so well in this movie that it doesn’t bother me.
Like seriously, props to the music supervisor for this movie.
And on top of that, this movie KNOWS when to use OST and when to use licensed songs. It KNOWS when certain music fits and certain music doesn’t and it knows how to intercut the two seamlessly - the way Hand On The Machine and Give It Up blend during the final fight is just a fantastically crafted movie music moment.
Kingsman has one of my absolute favourite movie soundtracks in any film. I cannot state enough how much I adore the music in this movie.
