Feel free to discuss the nominations, who you want to win, who you think will win etc

For me Snow Patrol, Muse and Gnarles Barkley will be big winners, with Jack Johnson winning his category and and best single also going to Snow Patrol

EDIT: to al the flamers saying "OMG lYkE ThErEs LyKe No MeTaL!!!!1!!!!1" and "mainstream sux0rzz!!!!1!!!1" grow up and open your mind to musicother than metal, thats right, it does exist. this is a thread for debating it as UGers do, if you want to say something like poster2 has please dont bother, instead make a thread about how much awards suck if that is your opinion

annoying.

Muse should have won more, the Kooks should have won something and Razorlight should have won the single award.

And yes maiden have never been recognised by the Brits, yet they are one of the most succesful British bands ever (different world was number 3 this year!!!).

My opinion on who should've won what:
British Male Solo Artist
Thom Yorke

British Female Solo Artist
All bollocks

British Group
Muse

MasterCard British Album
Muse Black Holes & Revelations


British Single
Take That


British Breakthrough Act
Corinne Bailey Rae


British Live Act
Robbie Williams

International Male Solo Artist
Bob Dylan

International Female Solo Artist
Christina Aguilera


International Group
Flaming Lips


International Album
Bob Dylan Modern Times


International BreakthroughAct
Gnarls Barkley


The Fratellis/Orson/The Killers/Amy Winehouse don't deserve to have won anything.

And, Take That's new single is absolutely FANTASTIC.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.


I'd dance with you but...

I don't understand why muse didn't perform with them winning best live act, it would have made the awards more worth watching.
