Neither of those stats are true. For a start, it's only actually sold ~390k in the UK - and 13th best selling? Try around 40th, unless you mean British singles, in which case that "something by Disclosure" and "Dear Darlin" both outsold it. The tracks nominated are the 10 best selling British songs of the year. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of many of them, but it is the fairest way to determine the nominees.

The ones in bold are who I want to win, the smilies are for who I'd also be happy to see win.

I couldn't pick one for international female!

Hav_mor91 09-01-2014 19:08

I love Laura but I think Ellie deserve it this year, she has worked hard continuously and created a great album in Halcyon plus I just love her :p

Barry_Clarke 09-01-2014 19:12

How Laura Marling got nominated ahead of Rebecca Ferguson in Best British Female is staggering and highly laughable! Just plainly unfair!

little-monster 09-01-2014 19:24

I am really happy for Ellie and Birdy. Especially Birdy, as she never seems to have any press, hype or attention.

barbeler 09-01-2014 19:29

I'm outraged. Where's Sting, Annie Lennox, Adele, Status Quo and every cabinet minister's favourite - The Arctic Monkeys?


Oh - the AM's are rightfully there. [Irony]Justice prevails.[/Irony]

Why is that laughable? Laura Marling's album went top 5 and was very highly praised by music critics. In addition Rebecca's latest album only came out at the very end of 2013 so may be held back for next year.

Hardly. Critics love Laura more than Ferguson and she has won the award before and been nominated before. It isn't unfair, it's just not being able to accept your fav act lost out on a nomination. There are a few others i would like to see nominated but i am not being childish by throwing my toys out the pram and saying "it's unfair"

LemonadeMouth 09-01-2014 19:42

Really happy for Birdy. I hope she wins. Her latest album Fire Within is outstanding.

Im just fed up with how biased the Brits are tbh.

Micknsiv 09-01-2014 19:55

Another year....another embarrassing set of nominees.

constantino_chr 09-01-2014 19:58

I am rooting for Laura Marling, London Grammar and John Grant simply because they are some of the best acts in the world right now but they have next to no chance of winning because it's political...>:(

danielleh 09-01-2014 20:06

British Male
WANT: Tom Odell (but happy with any winner)
THINK: John Newman

British Female
WANT: Laura Marling
THINK: Ellie Goulding

British Group
WANT & THINK: Disclosure

British Breakthrough
WANT: Disclosure (though happy with any winner)

British Single
WANT: Naughty Boy ft Sam Smith - La La La
THINK: One Direction - One Way or Another (assuming this is still public voted. It is sad to think that a dreadful cover would win over 9 better songs)

Album of the Year
WANT: Disclosure - Settle
THINK: Arctic Monkeys - AM

International Male
WANT & THINK: Justin Timberlake

International Female
WANT: Janelle Monae (certainly the most deserving of the recognition, there may be a chance)
THINK: Katy Perry

International Group
WANT: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (would be happy with any winner, maybe apart from Kings of Leon)
THINK: Haim

Overall I'm very happy with the nominations. Fantastic to see Janelle Monae being recognised in International Female, would be brilliant to see her take it!

I think the Brits are usually quite fair. I too would have liked to see Rebecca Ferguson nominated, but not instead of Laura Marling who is undoubtedly one of the best British artists around in my opinion. I would have put Rebecca Ferguson maybe instead of Birdy, though I haven't listened to her album, so I'm a bit biased in that respect. Laura Marling definitely deserves this award though.

Want to win:
British Male Solo Artist - John Newman
British Female Solo Artist - Ellie Goulding
British Group - Rudimental
British Breakthrough Act - Bastille
British Single - Ellie Goulding 'Burn'
British Album - Rudimental 'Home'
International Male Solo Artist - Drake
International Female Solo Artist - Lorde
International Group - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Aura101 09-01-2014 20:12

Are any of them a public vote ?

Smudged 09-01-2014 20:15

All quite predictable. Probably the only surprise is the token nomination for John Grant. Although the love for Bastille and no nominations for Foals is a little surprising I suppose. The lack of female artists in the album category is disappointing. Laura Marling and possibly Laura Mvula should have been nominated even though they wouldn't have won.

Hopefully they won't be so predictable with the winners and we see someone other than Arctic Monkeys win group and album (Disclosure have a slight chance imo).

ImperfectPearls 09-01-2014 20:16

Would love for One Direction to win Best British Group. They've had an amazing year. I think they thoroughly deserve it.
