There are two things LittleBigPlanet is well-known for. One, is to have successfully peddled off Sackboy as a lovable PlayStation mascot and the other is to rack up nominations like they're handing out free candy at the market. Continuing this trend of making industry heads turn and getting recognition, the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) has announced the nominees for its 12th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards with LittleBigPlanet being noted as most-nominated. Is there an award for just that -- most nominated?
All in all, the do-it-yourself platformer builder scored 10 nominations including "Overall Game of the Year" and "Outstanding Innovation in a Game"; however, we won't know if it won any of those until February 19 when the ceremony begins. Host Jay Mohr will surely bank on the opportunity to milk the LBP-crazed crowd with some Sackboy humor -- we just can't wait.
