1999

As our man said "last year it was all Verve, Verve, Verve..." and '99 proved that it was all Manics, Manics, Manics. Following in the steps of Smiths, Oasis and the Jam, the Manics swept the board.

Also notable is the Robbie Williams' win as 'Best Solo Artist' and the introduction of 'wacky' categories like 'Pop Personality You Would Most Like To Cook You A Meal'.
