Surprisingly David Bowie, who was nominated in six categories, missed out on any accolades. In the album category, he was beaten by Welsh rockers Biffy Clyro, who received a gong for their latest longplayer Opposites.
Elsewhere, Arctic Monkeys triumphed in the Best Track category with Do I Wanna Know?, Foals took the coveted Best Live Act award, while Scottish indie stalwarts Belle & Sebastian received the Spirit of Independence accolade.
The ceremony took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel yesterday afternoon. The full list of winners is available below.
