One of the things coming this schema change (next Monday) is artist series, and those are planned to include a separate series subtype for (artist) awards.
I thought I would try to get ahead and already start a discussion on how these should be handled.
I see three main issues:
- how do we treat awards that have multiple prizes (so, ones that specifically give, say, gold/silver/bronze rather than having one only winner and x nominees).
- how do we deal with nominees, for that matter (same series but indicated differently? or different series linked to the other one?).
- how do we join together related awards in general (“Top Artist”, “Top New Artist”, “Top Female Artist” etc for the Billboard Music Awards, for example). A new relationship? And if so, what kind of entity should be the Billboard Music Awards themselves? A series with no linked parts using the subseries relationship to link to all the specific prizes?
