The shortlist of the stars you've nominated for as the ceremony approaches...

EMINEM leads the list of nominees for this year’s NME CARLING AWARDS, picking up six nominations ahead of other big hitters OASIS and COLDPLAY, both nominated for three.

The ceremony, taking place in The Arches, Shoreditch, east London on February 6, is now in its eighth year, and as before reflects the music and artists the fans feel made a difference in the last year. All winners are chosen by readers of NME and NME.COM, with voting forms found both in the paper and here at [url=]www.nme.com/awards.

A total of 16 gongs will be handed out, including Best Band, Best Album, Best New Act and two awards sure to be among the most closely contested – Hero and Villain Of The Year. Noel and Liam Gallagher face off with Eminem, Badly Drawn Boy and Thom Yorke for Hero Of The Year, while Liam shows up again against Robbie Williams, Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, Eminem and Big Brother’s ‘Nasty’ Nick Bateman for the title of Villain Of The Year.
