ET Awards 2019: full results


Eurovision 2019 – This year we resumed the “Eurovision Times Awards” to give prizes (the Fridas) for the best in every category! And you got to vote! ET regular members made recommendations and open polls were open for a full week and winners were announced. Discover the full results now!

2019 will be the seventh year for Eurovision Times to organize a new contest (you can check 2013’s results here, the 2014’s ones here, the 2015’s ones here, the 2016’s ones here, the 2017’s ones here and the 2018’s ones here). As with the past few years, our blog hosts now three contests: TEKO which takes place before the contest and the “Eurovision Times Awards” after the contest, with “Premath/Aftermath” which compares our rankings before and after the contest. The principle of the ET Awards is simple, in each categories, the staff of this website will nominate a few entries per categories and open polls for the public to vote in them so we can reveal afterwards all the winners. The winners recieve an imaginary trophee, entitled the Fridas in hommage to Frida Boccara, the French Eurovision winner in 1969 with “Un jour, un enfant“.

In the past few weeks, the blog has played the game, recommendations, nominations, votes and winners. Now that all polls are closed and winners were announced, it does not harm to reveal the full results. We will also offer an analysis which you will be able to freely comment and disagree with.

7 comments on “ET Awards 2019: full results

  1. So the closest poll was “Best Male Style” with a 1pt victory by Switzerland over Azerbaijan.

    The biggest win is “Best Props & Gimmick” with a 58pt victory by Australia over Iceland.

  2. Interesting stats, thanks! Spread is really pretty close to what I imagined except for two categories: Best performance where NOR and SUI really should have been rewarded for how much the performance added to their songs, and Most underrated where POR and ESP got exactly what they deserved at ESC and I would have thought Poland’d get more points. But I think POL and POR had a lot of the same supporters so the bulk of thse votes went to POR.

  3. The bid books were presented today.
    Utrecht is probably the first one out. Despite having a venue (exhibition centre Jaarbeurs) they still need to build a tent for the actual show because the halls aren’t high enough. Also they don’t want to spend any money. Next.

    Arnhem is probably a bit like Herning, DK: Huge venue (largest of all the bids) but too small a town and provincial. Gelredome is one of the two roofed football stadiums in the Netherlands and football club Vitesse is willing to move for the contest. But I can’t see it happening.

    Don’t know too much about Den Bosch (will spare you the official name ‘s-Hertogenbosch) but I heard the Brabanthallen were renovated only recently. But also a small town with not enough hotel beds.

    So it will be either Rotterdam or Maastricht. Although I am sure the MECC isn’t big enough for the contest. They claim they can host 20.000 people, but that is over three halls. When it comes to the venue Ahoy wins hands down. No need to build stands. Also much closer to Schiphol. All those airports around Maastricht (Maastricht/Aachen, Liege, Eindhoven, Duesseldorf, Charleroi, Koeln) are regional.

    • CGN and DUS connect you to pretty much everywhere in Europe though… I think Eindhoven and Charleroi are both fairly big for Ryanair. Maastricht I agree seems to be mainly some holiday destinations. BXL (the real one, not the Ryanair one at Charleroi hahaha) is closer than Schiphol but I think it’s a bit of a haul; nots ure if the train connection is direct.

      • But CGN and DUS aren’t hubs like Schiphol or Frankfurt. Brussels – Maastricht can be done by train, but not direct but though Liege. Eindhoven is like Charleroi a low cost airport. Good connections with parts of Eastern Europe though (Wizz Air).
        And I doubt that delegations and press want to use Ryanair, but it would be good for the fans visiting.

  4. Because a picture says more then words.

  5. Predictable winners; congratulations to all of them. Slovenia did not do well, unfortunately. Thanks again for all your work, Morgan.
