Ivor Novello Awards

Amy Winehouse has won the main Ivor Novello Award for writing her song 'Love Is A Losing Game', Amy was up against her other song 'You Know I'm No Good ' and 'Let Me Out' by Ben's Brother. Amy's father collected the award on her behalf but Amy was said to be "very excited" at winning and her father said she was "getting better".

Winehouse won an Ivor Novello Award last year for 'Rehab' but this year failed to make it a double as 'Rehab' lost out to Beyonce and Shakira's 'Beautiful Liar' in the Best Selling British Single category.

Other Ivor Novello Award winners included Radiohead for Best Album with their 'In Rainbows' album. Take That had the Most Performed Work Award for their single 'Shine', being played more than any other track on the radio last year. Cherry Ghost's 'People Help The People' won the Best Contemporary Song Award, beating Kate Nash's 'Foundations' and 'Golden Skans' by The Klaxons.

Mika won Songwriter of the Year and Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour won the Lifetime Achievement Award, at the ceremony earlier today.The Outstanding Contribution to British Music went to Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze , while Soul II Soul's Jazzie B was given the Inspiration Award.

Phil Collins picked up an award for International Achievement but reiterated he was retiring from music to focus more on his family. In other categories, 'Atonement' won Best Film Score, while Oliver Twist was the winner of Best TV Soundtrack.
