The 2011 Molkie Awards are just a day away, and to help you prepare for the big day it’s time to analyse and be amazed by who made the cut. There will be a star studded guest list this Saturday at Cloudland in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley… so if you didn’t score and invite, you’ll have to tune into the uStream published on here on the big day (Saturday) ready for the big night.
