News: Meteor Awards Nominees 2009

Forget the Oscars, these are the real awards. No really. Yeah, I agree, it’s sometimes hard to take them seriously. There should be an edgier alternative. The Best Irish Band has Fight Like Apes in it, which is a plus, but Republic of Loose are definitely past their sell-by date. Best Irish Male is probably the best category, as all 5 are solid artists. Best Irish Female is always one they have trouble filling and usually wollop Sinead O’Connor in there. This year, it’s Enya. Live performance? Who nominates these…?
