Retro Stefson took home accolades for Song of the Year, and Music Video of the Year for their hit ‘Glow’, and were named Performers of the Year, as well. Ásgeir Trausti got a nod for Album of the year for “Dýrð í dauðaþögn”, was named the Brightest Hope (most likely to succeed), and was acknowledged as being voted a fan favourite on Tónlist.is, and generating the greatest online sales.
