Well last time out MW2 didn't, Although I disagree with the nominations last time round Batman won game of the year so they clearly do pay attention to games

I bet you Black Ops takes home everything it was nominated for, sad since it doesn't deserve any.

Slightly stunned that Red Dead Redemption didn't get any nominations at all except for the GAME Award, which is the only one voted for by the public.
