Oops! Didn't mean to reply to you there per se, but FWIW I totally voted for the Foo Fighters too and always would because of "Monkey Wrench".

bit fey, but what you're REALLY looking for is the Butch Clancy remix of Pumped Up Kicks.

I have chosen to abstain on Breakthrough Artist due to religious principles regarding the existence of the Vaccines.

I could not comment on several due to either not knowing any of them or hating them all. Why does Jessie J exist again? (In the music industry, I have no problem with her working as an admin or someting.)

I tried but honestly could not bring myself to pick a single out of that lot. Egads.

I have voted for The Vaccines because I heard one of their songs in the pub yesterday and thought it was all right. This may be the way that this entire list of nominations was put together.

*coff* I like the Vaccines! Every song on the album sounds the same. It's very safe young person's indie. I know I'm in the minority here. They might even end up on my top ten albums of 2011! Sad but true.

Where is Best International Album?
How are we supposed to take these awards consistently when there is no consistency? Although having said that, they used to have Best Pop/ Best Urban, etc. so I guess they never were.
