Well that's the SAMA's been and gone for another year.
It would appear that everyone had a ball - as expected - and the list of winners is now out.
Congratulations to all nominated, and equally to Richy and everyone involved in making these awards a reality.
In my opinion there were no losers. Just winners.
The amount of talent displayed across the breadth of the nominations was quite frankly mind blowing.
However as is required there must be winners and they are.
