NME Awards 2017

Postby stereoman » Wed Jan 18, 2017 2:36 am

I feel Paddy Power are very brave to continue pricing these up. I feel there are some fairly big priced winners hidden amongst this lot.

Who's performing? They ain't saying but whoever does turn up will very likely win. Winners are announced on Wednesday 15th February, a week before the now Michael Buble-free Brit Awards.

Best British Band throws in pop favourites Years and Years with previous winners Biffy Clyro. The Last Shadow Puppets had a great start to the year while Bastille came back. Wolf Alice are working on the follow up to their 2015 album.
I’m going for the 1975. They’ve had a really big year and have already nabbed the NME Album of the Year, voted for by the magazine and not the public. They do have a really large and supportive fan base and have also been number one in America.

With that in mind, I think they’ll also win Best British Album. It’s not unknown for a band to win both titles with recent double winners being Artic Monkeys and Kasabian. I’m surprised Radiohead are such a big price. I’m not sure if Kanye West has got enough love for his album and I don’t think he’d be as well regarded as Beyonce. Bastille could spring a surprise but watch out for Skepta.

Best International Band is wide open. A Tribe Called Quest called it quits and lost member Phife Dawg. The Hip Hop pioneers are due some credit. Tegan and Sara could be classed alongside Tame Impala as being a little outside the mainstream but adored by the alternative crowd. Kings of Leon, Metallica and Green Day all made comebacks better than their last outings. I’m going for a politically charged Green Day to nick it.

Best British Artist has split into two categories, Male and Female. Previous winners when it was a joint effort have veered from Jake Bugg with Florence getting a couple.

Best Male is a really diverse selection. Kano and Skepta have been waving the flag for grime music while Michael Kiwanuka is a welcome inclusion. Indie legend Richard Ashcroft has won great praise for his solo material although Jamie T’s latest material hasn’t had as much critical praise as his previous stuff. Zan Malik gets a nomination but I don’t think he’ll win. I’m going for Skepta.

Best Female is another diverse group. Dua Lipa joins the likes of Kate Tempest and M.I.A. PJ Harvey has previously won awards at the NME awards and so has Charli XCX. I think it’s difficult to avoid Adele, especially when you consider her Glastonbury headlining slot from last year.

Best International Artist is a new category that like it’s British counterpart has split into Best male and Female.

Best International Female could well be a fight between sisters Beyonce and Solange. Christine and the Queens has had a storming 2016 as did Sia. Tove Lo likes to shock while Lady Gaga’s comeback failed to set the charts alight.

I’d go for Sia.

Best TV Show has previous winner Game Of Thrones in contention, but the programme seems to have lost a bit of it’s sparkle. Cult shows like People Just Do Nothing and Fleabag could have chance of a shock while Black Mirror and Humans made a lot of headlines. My money is on Stranger Things. Along with Game of Thrones, NME seems to love the show but this is almost to the point of being obsessed. While it’s their readers who vote, NME know their audience.

Best Music Film on previous form looks to be a lottery. No sign of the Amy Winehouse documentary that did well at the box office. Of this year’s nominations the most obvious selection seems to be the Oasis one. Don’t rule out The Beatles of Stones and their loyal fan base but Oasis looks like the one to beat.

Hmmm. There've been some changes in the odds and not necessarily those of a "They've turned up? Oh, they're gonna win then!" type of reaction. It's tomorrow night...will come up with some predictions later.

EDIT: DANG IT!! I left it too late. They took the odds off! I think they're understandably scared off by those who know the results already and have placed their bets.
