2012 ARIA Awards Full List of Winners

Announcing the Winners of the 2012 ARIA Awards!

The ARIA Awards have wrapped for another year and plenty of Australia's brightest music stars were honoured in front of their peers at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. New Zealand-born Kimbra and her "Somebody That I Used to Know" partner Gotye (real name Wally De Backer) made history by being the first musicians to win best female artist and best male artist two years in a row. In fact it proved to be Gotye's night as he scooped up three awards, including album of the year. Six time-nominated Melbourne rapper 360 took home the award for breakthrough artist release, and Matt Corby's "Brother" won the public-voted song of the year. See the full list of winners after the break.
