NME award noms are in

The 2010 Shockwaves NME Awards (is it mere cooincidence that Indie awards ceremony is sponsored by a hair gel company?) nominations have been announced, and by lord there are a lot of them. Why you’d think some of these gongs were made up to extend the drinking time for rock stars....

The big winner looks to be either Kasabian or Arctic Monkeys, who are both up for every big award worth winning. Oasis are amusingly up for best British band and worst band, which kind of sums up their relationship with the British public. And even Facebook and Twitter are up for awards, with the best website up for grabs. If Facebook wins after trying to stitch people up over their privacy and then suggesting people pay for the privilege, then we will know for sure that there is no God. The full list of nominees is below.
