    The best album category has been called a farce in some of the media after all but 2 of the albums were released in 2000 and not 2001. Same goes for all awards dido's up for id say and craig david who did **** all last year.

    It can't be coz Born To Do It came out in 2000. Altho Jack may have just made this point.

    Erm am I thinking of the wrong awards here or do the Brits not only happen every like 16 months or so?? I'm 99.9% sure its longer than just 1 year so that could account for some of the strange nominations couldn't it?!

    Unless they've changed it or something!

    id have to agree about the state of the music industry, but it aint just the british one, its the whole lot

    i cant remember the last time i bought an album less than 5 years after it was released.(it was probably the masterplan)

    there just isnt any decent new stuff

    The Brits rules seem to be made up as they go along.U2 should certainly have been nominated,whilst Craig David should have won at least one award last year.They are a joke at times.Atomic Kitten and Dido best newcomer,they were around last year lol.

    They are a total farce. How can Atomic Kitten be nominated Best Newcomer 2 years in a row? (How can Atomic Kitten be nominated BEst Newcomer at all?)
    How can the Brit award 2002 for Best Album go to Radiohead or Craig David, when their albums were released in 2000! And Radiohead released 2 more albums in 2001 anyway, why wasnt one of them chosen instead?

    For the record, my own choices out of those groups would be

    Best British Newcomer:
    Elbow

    Best British Male:
    Aphex Twin

    Best British Female:
    PJ Harvey

    Best British Group:
    Radiohead

    Best British Single:
    'Gotta Get Thru This' - Daniel Bedingfield

    Best British Dance Act:
    Basement Jaxx

    Mastercard Best British Album:
    'Kid A', Radiohead

    Best British Video:
    'Where's Your Head At', Basement Jaxx

    Best International Male:
    Bob Dylan

    Best International Female:
    Alicia Keys

    Best International Newcomer:
    The Strokes

    Best International Album:
    'Is This It', The Strokes

    Best International Group:
    The Strokes




    And Shilliday - there is LOADS of good new stuff, just not if you limit yourself to Top of the Pops and Radio 1. The Brits (like TOTP and R1) are all about PUBLIC taste, and we all know the Public has **** taste! Mercury Music Prize - most of the albums on there are probably worth a look - Radioheads and Elbows CERTAINLY are.

    I also think Gorillaz are ****. Damon Albarn tries and fails to make them 'credible'.

    Best Male; three bloody inbreds, a washed up indie singer and the greatest musical mind of his generation. :rolleyes:
