Gordon in the morning: Prize day

Gordon Smart has offered his review of the year in the form of an awards ceremony, giving him a chance to fawn once again over the Spice Girls and present Noel Gallagher with the odd "Lord of Bizarre" prize. Yes, the Spice Girls and Oasis. Gordon Smart's heart is stuck in 1997.

There's a marvelous picture of Gordon, Noel and Serge from Kasabian which looks less like a journalist on the largest-selling newspaper in the country presenting an award, more like "can my mate take a picture on the cameraphone cause otherwise Victoria will never believe I've met you, mate?"

Serge has won a prize for drinking a lot, which at least brings Gordon more up to date - about 2005, we reckon.

Sensibly, for most of the other 'awards' shots they've just unconvincingly photoshopped in a prize on top of the picture, although Gordon and his scarf do go to present the Lady Of Bizarre gong to, erm, Jo Whiley for some reason. Gordon explains the strange choice:

She has made her Live Lounge show appointment listening - something you rarely hear about radio.

What about In Our Time? Or Brain Surgery? Or the Freak Zone? Or...
When you look at the acts on the show albums released this year you realise how highly artists rate it.

Sorry, Gordon?

Okay, we know what he was trying to say, but...

Even more oddly, despite the "rare" appointment-listening of Whiley's show, Smart makes Scott Mills DJ of the year.

Is it wrong that I find Gordon ridiculously attractive in this picture?

surely it's only the thorns on either side that make him a rose?
