Congratulations to the CLASS of 2012 - The CBC Radio 3 Bucky Award winners.

Sexiest Artist - Jaycelyn Brown of Said The Whale
#socialbutterfly Social Media Award - Said the Whale
Most Watchable Song (Best Video) - Said The Whale  "We Are 1980"
Rookie of the Year - The Elwins
  •  We were pulling hard for Loon Choir, who are rookier than The Elwins (formed in 2007). But we remember liking The Elwins' set at NXNE 2011.
 Best Reason to Buy a Concert Ticket (Best Live Act) - Mother Mother
  •  Mother Mother was the very first Canadian indie band one of us saw live (at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, touring with Sam Roberts). They opened with "Hayloft." Quite the intro.
In Memoriam: Most Impactful Break-up - Handsome Furs
Electronic Song of the Year - Grimes  "Oblivion"
 Best Reason to Learn French (Best Francophone Song)  - Bernard Adamus'  "Entre ici pis chez vous"
  • Hey! Someone we voted for actually won! We love this guy.
 Lifetime Achievement - Nardwuar the Human Serviette
  •  Well-deserved recognition for the original doot doola doot doo dynamo.

Golden Bucky (Song of the Year) - Joel Plaskett  "Lightning Bolt"
  •  Although "Bolt" isn't our favourite Plaskett song, his performances at this year's Home County Music & Art Festival made us fans, through & through & through.
Fan of the Year - Christine McAvoy
  • We can't think of anyone we'd rather pass our tiaras to than CMac. Welcome to the FOTY ranks! Love ya.
