It should have been re-named the ‘Oasis Awards’ really. The brothers Gallagher swept the board winning, like, pretty much all the awards.
Noel Gallagher was quoted as saying: “Awards don’t make you any better or any worse but it would really do my head in if I went out in the pouring rain to the post box to vote for my favourite band and then they went up and said they weren’t bothered. I think that’s tragic.”
Oasis were followed closely behind in most categories by Pulp and Blur (that had to hurt).
