In this post, we will discuss a few words related to an award: ‘nominee,’ ‘nominator,’ and ‘nomination.’
- Nominee (n.), pronounced /näməˈnē/. Meaning: a person who is proposed as a candidate for an office or as the recipient of an award. ‘Nominee’ can also mean a person or company, not the owner, in whose name a stock, bond, or company is registered.
- We usually have four nominees for our company’s “Employee of The Year”, one from each department.
- Nominator (n.), pronounced /ˈnɒmɪneɪtə/. Meaning: a person or body who names an eligible candidate to receive an award or enter an office.
- What the nominees don’t know is the nominators will stay anonymous until the ceremony is over.
- Nomination (n.), pronounced /nɒmɪˈneɪʃ(ə)n/. Meaning: the action of nominating or a state of being nominated.
- Despite having received several Oscar nominations, Leonardo DiCaprio has won none yet.
