Dumbest awards, it's basically a gossip magazine style awards show bar the odd bit.

Rather convenient that Johnny Marr is going on his first solo tour in March isn't it?

Anyone take these seriously?

So when you're nominated for worst band, do you actually show up at the ceremony so you can accept the award if you win?

How is Alt-J nominated for best album and worst band?

Also that list for 'Hero of the Year" is hilarious. I can't think of any other time Dave Grohl is simultaneously in a category with Barack Obama, David Bowie and Pussy Riot.
