I'm quite bored, I can't think of anything good yet to come out this year so I'm doing this.... My personal taste, bands have had to release something this year. So there'll be no Muse, David Bowie etc etc. I don't care for slagging off, you can disagree if you like but.
Shortlist of six for most catergories

Best Band
Coldplay
Oasis
Franz Ferdinand
The White Stripes
Doves
Stereophonics

Winner - Coldplay - sorry haters but a third great album in a row.

Best New Band
Editors
The Magic Numbers
Bloc Party
The Kaiser Chiefs
The Arcade Fire
Maximo Park

The Arcade Fire - awesome awesome awesome. The new single Wake Up will (well should) propel these boys and girl into super superstars.

Best Band You've Not Heard Of Until 2006
Apartment
Redjetson
Arctic Monkeys
Misty's Big Advenutre
We Are Scientists
The Dresdon Dolls

Apartment - I've seen these guys countless times. Released two fantastic singles and a third on the way, hopefully an album before the end of the year.

Best Album
The Arcade Fire - Funeral
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
Editors - The Back Room
Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better...
The Magic Numbers - The Magic Numbers
Art Brut - Bang Bang Rock & Roll

Editors - The Back Room, just edging Arcade Fire because every song on the back room is unskipable. Bullets, Munich, Fall, Open Your Arms are stand out.

Best Single
The Arcade Fire - Rebellion (Lies)
Maximo Park - Going Missing
Arctic Monkeys - I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot
Emily Kane - Art Brut
Franz Ferdinand - Do You Want To

Arctic Monkeys - I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor, only came out this week and it is the best song of the year, end of.

Best Live Gig I've been at
Bloc Party @ The Astoria, April
Coldplay @ Glastonbury, June
Razorlight @ The Garage, June
The Magic Numbers @ The Barfly, June
Queen & Paul Rodgers @ Brixton, Mar
Embrace @ Shepherds Bush, April

The Magic Numbers. Me & 249 others going mental. Fantastic.

I've done a few contradictions, you need not pick them up!

Every sort of award bores me these days


True. Too much pop culture commercialism, too little awards given to truly deserving artists (or bands/acts/whatever you want to call them)
