Published Apr 17, 2020Like many in the music world, organizers for the Oshawa Music Awards have moved their 2020 proceedings online due to coronavirus, and are announcing this year's recipients with a weekly livestream series.
Set to run April 4 through May 23, the stream series will feature one award category, spotlight the nominees, and announce the winner. You can find a complete livestream schedule alongside a list of 2020 nominees and winners below.

Elsewhere, Jules McCools and director Keegan Doyle were awarded Music Video of the Year honours for their "Encore" visuals, while Kevin Simpson and Jayson Callan were both named Music Industry Leaders of the Year.
Forthcoming streams will see Chastity, Crown Lands and Robyn Ottolini vie for Artist or Band of the Year, with honours also coming for Music Teacher of the Year, Durham Region Song of the Year and more.
Tomorrow (April 18), OMA will reveal the winner of their Emerging Artist or Band of the Year award, with Hunter Sheridan, Nathan Carr and Zaftig in contention.
