ARIA And Julia Stone

Old mate Bernard Zuel talks all things ARIA 2010:

Not everyone is a fan of the new format and the perceived slight to those awards not included in Sunday night's broadcast. However, Dan Rosen, the new chief executive of ARIA, defended the splitting of prizes and said the public interaction via a new phone app allowing live streaming was "world class" and the awards generated much cyber chat. "With online it's all about giving new content and we been able to put up new content every day," Rosen said.

The Northern Beaches duo take the top prize but it was a fairly even spread. I have to say the "new format" was kind of strange. It didn't really make for compelling viewing but rats off for trying.
