2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards

The 2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards ceremony, organized by CJ E&M through its music channel Mnet, took place on December 4 at Nagoya Dome, Japan. The ceremony was the 21st ceremony in the show's history, the first Mnet Asian Music Awards not to take place in Hong Kong after 7 years, and in 3 locations after 2 years.[1] This year's theme is "The NEXT DIMENSION : MUSIC". Park Bo-gum hosted the awards ceremony for the 3rd consecutive year after hosting the Japan edition of MAMA 2017 and 2018.[2]

In August, Mnet responded to reports regarding the venues of this year's ceremony. The ongoing protests in Hong Kong and the high tension of the relations between Korea and Japan made delays to the confirmation of the venues.[4] On September 24, Mnet announced that the host location of 2019 MAMA will be at Nagoya, Japan, stating that cultural exchange must continue regardless of political issues.[5]

All songs that are eligible to be nominated are songs released from November 1, 2018 to October 23, 2019.
