Now, the hugely astute amongst you will notice that two of the Events of the Year haven't even happened yet. And, of course, the Stereophonics have been nominated Best British Band despite not having released a record worthy of consideration for an award in either the singles or the albums categories. Which is a bit odd when you think about it, isn't it? What are they being judged on to make them worthy of consideration, then? Their press interviews? Looking a bit odd? Not having smashed themselves in their ugly faces with 1950's style bakelite telephones?
