Brit Award 2008: More S**t Than Brit!

The Brit Award nominations were revealed last night (full list HERE) and I've got to say the awards seem more "S**t" than "Brit". Partly due to the multiple nominations of the same artists, which then leads to the lack of variety.

I was expecting Coventry band, The Enemy to be in the "Breakthrough Act" after a year of constant touring, a number one album and four singles in the Top 40. Instead we are offered two artists, Leona Lewis and Mika that have 8 nominations between them, Kate Nash (3 nominations), the Klaxons (2 nominations) and finally Bat For Lashes (2 nominations). It would have been more interesting to have at least one artist in the nominations who wasn't listed in another category.

While I'm sure the Brit Awards 2008 will be fantastic, I can't help but feel it could have included nominations in a wider field. Back in June I predicted on "robmacca entertainment news" The Enemy would be in the nominations for "Breakthough Act", today I've been proved wrong - but I can't help bands like The Enemy (and many other artists) have been over looked in what seems to be a popularity contest. Meanwhile can Girls Aloud pick up their first Brit Award or will Take That beat them to it? - find out on February 20th!
