mtvU’s 2006 Woodie Awards, the only awards show voted on by college students, will simulcast Nov. 2 on-air, online and on mobile.

Top nominees this year include Arctic Monkeys and Imogen Heap, who garnered three nods each and will compete in the “Breaking Woodie” (Best Emerging Artist) and “Streaming Woodie” (Most Downloaded) categories. 

Eleven other artists, including Atmosphere, Gym Class Heroes, Hellogoodbye, Nightmare of You, Plain White T’s, Taking Back Sunday, The Academy Is and The Fray followed with two nominations each. 

Winners will be determined through student voting and announced at a live concert event Oct. 25 at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. The show will debut Nov. 2 at 8 pm ET premiering simultaneously on mtvU, mtvU.com and mtvU Mobile, as well as Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition PCs and Media Center Extenders including the Xbox 360.  In addition, for the first time, a special half-hour version of the “Woodies” will also air on MTV and MTV2, with the MTV premiere set for Nov. 4 at 10 p.m. ET, with an encore performance on MTV2 scheduled for Nov. 5 at 11 p.m. ET. 

Some of the most notable success stories from the past two years include Fall Out Boy, the Killers, Matisyahu and the Afters all of which saw their careers skyrocket after the “Woodies.”  More than one million student votes were cast for last year’s “mtvU Woodie Awards,” as the college audience declared Death Cab for Cutie, Muse, Motion City Soundtrack and My Chemical Romance the winners.
