[Update January 9, 2008]
The final nominations for the Grammis have been made public. Eva is nominated to the category Årets textförtfattare (The song-writter of the year). The Grammis galan takes place tonight at 20:00! Good luck!

Another novelty this year is that the Grammi statue has been redesigned by Efva Attling. The new prize is a 2,2 heavy glass statue produced in glass by Orrefors which resembles a skyscraper, with a star at the top.

“My first thought was Empire State Building meets Hötorgsskrapan with a musical touch. Then it felt important that the star should be done with the finest platinum, which is the most expensive material – after all, the one who wins the prize has to feel like a star. “That night and for ever,” comments Efva.

Let’s hope Eva can take one of these precious prizes home.
