2012 ACM Awards Complete nominees and winners list

The 47th Annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, which was hosted by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, has just ended.

Jason and Miranda walk home with two trophies each at Academy of Country Music Awards, but it’s Taylor Swift who shines at the top category by winning Entertainer of the Year.

Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert dominated the full winner list by bagging two kudos each.  Jason took home Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year, thanks to his crossover collaboration with pop singer Kelly Clarkson.

Meanwhile, Miranda got Album of the Year for her latest studio effort “Four the Record”, and was crowned Female Vocalist of the Year.  Though Jason and Lambert received the most gongs, it was Taylor Swift who grabbed the top honor, Entertainer of the Year.

This marked her win in the category for second year in a row. During her acceptance speech, she gave shout-outs to fellow nominees and her cancer-stricken fan who missed show due to his medical condition.
