Winehouse and Radiohead up for gongs21 April 2008 - Amy Winehouse could get even more awards for her trophy cabinet - she's just been nominated for three Ivor Novellos.
Radiohead have been nominated for the Album Award for In Rainbows, alongside Stephen Fretwell for Man On The Roof and Cherry Ghost for Thirst For Romance.
Winehouse took home the award for Best Contemporary Song last year for Rehab but she's not nominated in that category for 2008. This time it's between Kate Nash's Foundations, Klaxons' Golden Skans and People Help The People by Cherry Ghost.
The Ivor Novello Awards celebrate British songwriting and are presented by the British Academy Of Composers & Songwriters in association with The Performing Right Society. The winners of the 53rd Ivor Novellos will be announced at the ceremony on 22 May at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.
The main award nominees are:
Best Song Musically & Lyrically
Let Me Out - Ben's Brother
Love Is A Losing Game - Amy Winehouse
You Know I'm No Good - Amy Winehouse
Best Contemporary Song
Foundations - Kate Nash
Golden Skans - Klaxons
People Help The People - Cherry Ghost
PRS Most Performed Work
Ruby - Kaiser Chiefs
Shine - Take That
Stars In Their Eyes - Just Jack
Best-Selling British Song
Beautiful Liar - Beyonce & Shakira
Grace Kelly - Mika
Rehab - Amy Winehouse
In Rainbows - Radiohead
Man On The Roof - Stephen Fretwell
Thirst For Romance - Cherry Ghost
The awards are given to the song-writers rather than the performers - the Beyonce and Shakira single involved a British song-writing team. Several other awards in the gift of the Academy to be presented on the day include Outstanding Song Collection, Ivors Inspiration Award and PRS Outstanding Contribution To British Music.
