I am so honored to be nominated for an OEAA and be on the same list with so many talented artists! Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to vote and support the arts! We love you!! Since I'm in SoCal and won't be able to make the showcase, I made this video so I could still hang with my friends across the miles! Be sure to catch them perform live at Backline December 29th and catch this video on the "big screen".
The Omaha Entertainment Awards have been recognizing artists for over ten years. This organization and awards ceremony was cultivated to thank the artists who keep Omaha culture alive. They uniquely recognize the performing arts, live arts, music and comedy in the area.
These awards are 100% community based. Once public online submissions are closed, initial ballots are sent to each genre review committee to analyze the nominations. These committees make sure each nominee fits the criteria and finalize the official list of nominees.
The top nominees in each category are then put on a ballot that is sent to members of the OEAA Academy, consisting of over 100 established artists, industry professionals and cultural journalists. These tallied ballots will give us our Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards winners which will be announced at the annual awards show in early 2019.
