Arctic Monkeys take prizes at NME awards

Postby arctic » Fri Mar 02, 2007 1:20 am

NME magazine bases its decisions on what the fans say rather than on a panel of judges. Last year, more than 80,000 people took part in the voting.

The band, who took three NME awards in 2006 following the sensational success of their debut album, were the only multiple winners of 2007, picking up prizes for Best Album for "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" and Best Music DVD for "Scummy Man."

* Best Live Event - Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds Festivals
* Best TV Show - The Mighty Boosh
* Best Radio Show - Zane Lowe (Radio 1)
* Best Film - Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
* Sexiest Woman - Kate Moss
* Sexiest Man - Matt Bellamy (Muse)

YAY, go Arctic Monkeys! I am so happy for them. They deserve every reward they get. Too bad they weren't sporting costumes this time around.

it's great they won the best album :D i'm also happy about Jamie T and Klaxons but i think Kasabian's Empire should have won for the best video.
P!ATD is certainly the worst band!

she' s sexy even on drugs, that' s the fantastic thing! (well, according to me. i can understand that some ppl don' t like her as well as they don' t like Pete or I don' t think Alex looks that good)

Bones is definitely one of the best videos! By MISTER Tim Burton!

My thoughts on the winners of the awards - (My opinions are in ITALICS

* Best British Band - Muse (They didn't need an award to know that. :P)
* Best Album - Arctic Monkeys, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not (:roll:)
* Best International Band - My Chemical Romance (They're pretty good, but there are better bands more deserving of that award)
* Best New Band - Klaxons (Yay!)
* Best Solo Artist - Jamie T (This plain confuses me)
* Best Live Band - Kasabian (Now I wanna see them live! :P)
* Best Track - The View, Wasted Little DJs (If it was going to be The View, I would of thought it would have been Same Jeans or something. Oh well, at least they won)
* Best Video - The Killers, Bones (That video was a big disappointment)
* Best Music DVD - Arctic Monkeys, Scummy Man (No comment. :P)
* Best Live Event - Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds Festivals (See Best Music DVD)
* Best TV Show - The Mighty Boosh (Never watch it)
* Best Radio Show - Zane Lowe (Radio 1) (Never listen to the radio)
* Best Film - Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (Don't watch a lot of films, but this was good)
* Sexiest Woman - Kate Moss (:shock: What people deiced these things? She's not sexy)
* Sexiest Man - Matt Bellamy (Muse) (O_o)
* Worst Band - Panic! At The Disco (They don't deserve this award. If anyone has to be given the Worst Band award, give it to Black Eyed Peas.)
* Worst Album - Robbie Williams, Rudebox (ZING!)
* Worst Dressed - Lily Allen (No comment)
* Best Dressed - Farris Rotter (Never heard of him/her/it)
* Villain Of The Year - George W Bush (Hahahahahaha)
* Hero Of The Year - Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) (O_o)
* Best Venue - Carling Brixton Academy
* Best Website - YouTube (Well, at least it wasn't MySpace or Bebo or that crap)
