Final nominees for awards are shown in plain, with winners in bold.
Arena reflected on the award, "I have been around a long time. I've had an incredible time and I'm still learning many things. Receiving the award is wonderful as it's great to be recognised for the work you put in. I'm very proud." She described her colleagues, "I've worked with some wonderful people in Europe, like Desmond Child (worked with Ricky Martin) and Matthew Wilder (worked with No Doubt)."
Dusty described his works, "I started making private records in 1942 and got accepted to a recording contract of kind in 1946. It's hard to believe that I've done this many records. I still record very fast, getting the tracks down quickly, and I like to have young people around me in the process."
There were no Hall of Fame inductees.
