NME-INATIONS: The nominations have been opened for the NME awards and you've got the chance to vote online for the overall winners. (The nme awards have gone a bit crazy in the last couple of years; you vote for the shortlist, then vote again for the overall winners). Best single is being fought between
'Seven Nation Army' - White Stripes
'There There' - Radiohead
'I Believe In A Thing Called Love' - The Darkness
'Don't Look Back In To The Sun' - The Libertines
'Hey Ya!' - OutKast

- what, no Beyonce?, while the really unsatisfying UK - International split for the band award means that we're denied the chance to see Radiohead fighting The Strokes. Instead, the rest of the world XI is represented by
The Strokes
Kings Of Leon
White Stripes
Queens Of The Stone Age
Foo Fighters

while the Duchess of Norfolk's team will be selected from
The Darkness
The Libertines

- The Libertines do pretty well for nominations , really, considering they spent most of the year sending each other to prison. Amongst the other awards, Ricky Gervais gets the opportunity to add two Brats to his two Golden Globes, with The Office nominated in best TV and his XFM show in the radio category; oddly, I Believe In A Thing Called Love gets nominated for best video, despite the Darkness making frankly horrible promo clips. And we don't believe for a single minute that anyone really nominated Gonzo for a TV award. But anyway: vote early, vote often, but don't vote for Jet as best new band. People will despise you for it.
