MCV Awards 2010: finalists revealed

So, were you one of the chosen ones?

Finalists for the 2010 MCV Industry Excellence Awards have been chosen (scroll down for the full list below if you just can't wait) – and over 60 companies are in the running for the hotly-contested awards.

Activision and Ubisoft score the most nominations, with nine each, while EA gets eight nominations, and Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft all get seven nominations.

But although industry giants garner multiple nominations, other key finalists include top peripherals brands, leading distributors – and of course key retailers such as GAME and Gamestation (five nominations between them), HMV and many others.

The only event of its type, the MCV Awards give everyone in the UK trade a chance to be recognised for their efforts in the last 12 months.

Over 600 industry execs will attend the sold out event on the night of Thursday, April 22nd to see who has been named as leaders in their fields.

Voting will take place over the coming weeks, with our expert panel of industry execs having their say.
