Brit Awards 2008: Nominees

Posted in Awards, Beth by Beth Squires on January 14, 2008


It’s that special Award-dominated time of year again, and the next load of nominees to be announced on this side of the Atlantic are for the Brit Awards 2008.

Made up of a few fan-voted awards and a bunch of record industry suits-voted awards, there are debates over the meaningfulness of the Brits, but it’s more about the evening’s performances and dresses than the actual awards, right?!

    You know, I wasn’t going to comment on here for the simple weirdness of having a triplet special of my profile picture running down the side of you guys’ blog.

    But I figured, “what the hell” and I clicked to leave my predictions for the first 3 categories. Then I realized this post was much longer than I thought. Dammit, now I don’t feel like thinking that hard for the rest of them. And I can’t just leave 3. I also can’t back out now. I’ll leave my comment and get on with my life. I hate life.

    Oh god I know. There are many, but feel free to predict a couple!
    I won’t be predicting, but here’s who I would like to see winning / wouldn’t mind winning:
    Male Solo: Mark Ronson / Richard Hawley
    Female Solo: Bat For Lashes / PJ Harvey
    Group: The That all the way…
    Album: see above
    Breakthrough act: BFL again.
    Live Act: TAKE freaking THAT
    Single: you guessed it: TT (what can I say, they hooked me when I was young…)
    Int Male: Kanye or Rufus
    Int Female: Feist or Bjork
    Int Group: Foo Fighters
    Int Album: Arcade Fire

    I’m sure it won’t turn out like this though…

    And Michael, don’t hate life. It’s all good… the Brit Awards is a teeny tiny blip in the commenting landscape. And hey, there was totally a totem pole featuring you on the side of our site for a bit! WOO! Never a bad thing!
