RHCP MTV EMA OKS

As happened with the American awards, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have been not-quite-garlanded with a slew of nominations for the MTV European Music Awards, although when they come to give the prizes out in Copenhagen in November, we imagine the small gongs will be given to younger people with better eye make-up.

Anyway, the nominations in full are:

Best Male Artist:
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
KANYE WEST
PHARRELL WILLIAMS
ROBBIE WILLIAMS
SEAN PAUL

Best Female Artist:
BEYONCE KNOWLES
CHRISTINA AGUILERA
MADONNA
NELLY FURTADO
SHAKIRA

Best Group:
THE BLACK EYED PEAS
DEPECHE MODE
KEANE
THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

EVANESCENCE
KEANE
THE KILLERS
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
THE STROKES

Best Hip-Hop Act:
BUSTA RHYMES
KANYE WEST
MISSY ELLIOTT

Best Video:

Whoever would have thought that Depeche Mode would have been nominated for an MTV award - especially Best Group - in 2006?

Having said which, apart from the odd Arctic Monkeys nomination, this list could be for VH1 Classic Awards.

I was amazed to see DM nominated, and more so when they won. I mean they were up against some crappy...no shitty shitty bands, except for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But hey, if you produce one of the best 05' albums of the year, let alone the for the past 26 years, you'd better win somthing.

This was the 2006 awards, not the 1983 awards - so Michael hadn't done anything that qualified in the period under consideration. Or anything for the twenty years before, really.
