The NME Awards 2012 were held last night at the Brixton Academy in South West London and the Brit Bands turned out for this one. (see previous arrivals article for photos). The top awards on the night went to Kasabian who won the Best British Band and Best solo Artist went to Florence and The Machine who also came away with Best Track with her single “Shake It Out”.
Pulp were awarded for their outstanding contribution to music. Glad to see Glastonbury won the Best Festival award although the V Festival I would say is just as good along with T in the Park. Noel Gallagher seemed to be impressed with his Godlike Genius Award.
What we like even more about this NME event is there’s a sort of Razzies section within the awards saying who is for want of better words “total cr@p”. Now apparently in the region of 8-10 Million fans voted at this event, it’s a people’s vote and it’s interesting to see Justin Bieber came away with the Villain of the Year award and also Worst Album for his “Under The Mistletoe” Christmas offering. Even worse the teen heart throbs One Direction won the worst band. Does make you think and wonder how they get to no1 in the charts if that’s how the votes from the general public panned out. Doesn’t say much for the charts does it?
Highlights from the NME Awards 2012 show will be broadcast on Channel 4 this Saturday. Full winners list after the jump. (more…)
The NME Awards 2012 were held tonight (29 February) at the Brixton Academy in South West London. The awards were founded by the music magazine, NME (New Musical Express).The first awards show was held in 1953 so they have been around a fair while before many of the current big name music awards events were even thought of.
Venues in the past have included the Royal Albert Hall, Olympia and the Empire Pool Wembley. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones have featured at this event on numerous occasions back in the day. This event has some history and cred!
The awards are voted for by fans and according to the offical NME website:
An incredible eight million votes have been cast this year for the 26 award categories, proving that the NME Awards 2012 is a ceremony (more…)
The Brit Awards 2012 are being held at the o2 Arena and it’s all about the awards and the show and performances but the red carpet arrivals is also very much where it’s at. Film award style events tend to lean towards the posher end of the spectrum in dress code terms, TV awards events are in the middle but music awards…………………………..anything goes and the stars let rip at these sort of events and take a gamble. Risque numbers, shockingly bright colours and stuff verging on fancy dress are not off limits. Not always the case though, some years can look a bit tame but generally speaking music awards promise a bolder colour spectrum in red carpet fashion stakes
There’s been a bit of Brit Awards buzz today in London and with the huge line up of stars set to perform live at this event with Rihanna, Ed Sheeran and Adele to name a just a couple, it promises to be a belter.
The 2012 Brit Awards is a big event on a par with something like the National TV Awards held recently, so who was on the red carpet? First off a photog analysis basically ranking who was on the red carpet and the number of photos taken as in amount of interest from the photogs at the event, a good indicator on who was cutting it in red carpet terms. Here’s the tops! (more…)
