Nominees For The 3rd Annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards Revealed

Posted by on February 24, 2011

Though the award show’s official press conference is supposed to take place later today, the website for the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods Award Show has already gone live online. In other words, we now officially know the nominees and performers for the 3rd annual metal award show. We also know that the Golden God Award will be given to shock rock legend (and soon to be Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer) Alice Cooper, while the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award will go to Motley Crue. In a somewhat surprising move, though, the Revolver Golden Gods Award Show has appeared to have left off the “Hottest Chick In Metal” award. Maybe they’ve heard all the criticism they’ve gotten about the “demeaning” award and thought it best to leave it out this year.

WWE wrestler Chris Jericho returns this year to host the award show. While the ceremony will take place on April 20 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, the highlights and performances from the show will be aired on VH1 Classic at a later time. In addition to receiving the Golden God Award, Alice Cooper will be performing with the original Alice Cooper Group at the ceremony. Also slated to perform is Duff McKagan’s Loaded, Devildriver, Asking Alexandria, Volbeat and Fozzy (Chris Jericho’s band).

We will keep you posted when more information about the awards show is revealed. You can vote for who wins at the award show’s website.
