They're joined by pal Mark Ronson at NME Awards USA
The Sheffield band earned the award, voted by NME.COM’s US users, for their second record ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’, but guest presenter, model Agyness Deyn, decided she wanted to give it out to someone on the night.
“It’s a great fucking honour,” Ronson quipped, with Reynolds adding “We’re up for it and we’re having a laugh!”
The other nominees were:
Arcade Fire – ‘Neon Bible’
Babyshambles – ‘Shotter’s Nation’
Klaxons – ‘Myths Of The Near Future’
Radiohead – ‘In Rainbows’
With the British NME Awards already a key event on the global music scene, this year marks the launch of the NME Awards in north America.
