The 21st Aliw Awards nominees--the complete list

Turns out the Aliw Awards group has no website, and its complete roster of nominations is not even online. (Good luck on your Google search.) I copied verbatim the list below from the press release that appeared in the September 20, 2008 issue of the Philippine Star. I'm assuming the published PR came from the Aliw Awards mismo (else why would Ricky Lo print it?), and hence the list is correct, complete and official. My comments on the Theater nominations are here; the rest--well, what do you think?
