We’ll be live-blogging tonight’s Game Media Awards in London, just so you don’t miss any of the “action.”

We’re up for two – “Games Website” and “Specialist Games Writer – ONLINE” – which means we sort of have to go, and seeing as we’re there we thought we might as well bring you the blow-by-blow account of us not winning either.

Find all the categories and the nominations after the break. Not sure exactly when it’s going to start. There’s a pre-show drinks thing at 7.00pm BST, so we reckon you should keep an eye on the site from 8.00pm onwards.
