The Q Award Nominations Are Out

The Q award nominations have been announced. Arctic Monkeys and Muse received the most nominations (four and three, respectivey). Both groups were nominated for Best Live Act and Best Album. Muse was also nominated for Best Act In The World Today. Arctic Monkeys picked up additional nods for Best New Act and Best Track (for "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor", a song that is over a year old, albeit not in its album format).

Voting is open until October 20. The awards will be given October 30 at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London, where guest rooms offer bottled water for a fee. Any artists planning on spending the night may want to bring some extra money (or pack bottles of water in their luggage).
