Although Back To Black was originally released in October 2006, the Ivor Novello Awards ceremony in London on 22 May 2008 should see Amy Winehouse scoop yet more plaudits for the hit album.

Winehouse, reportedly holed up working on the theme for the next James Bond movie, has three nominations. Love Is A Losing Game and You Know I´m No Good compete in the Best Song Musically And Lyrically category against Let Me Out by Ben´s Brother.

Although it won Best Contemporary Song in 2007, Rehab features again in 2008 in the Best Selling British Song category.

Radiohead seem odds on to receive the Best Album award for In Rainbows, won in 2007 by the Arctic Monkeys´ debut Whatever People Say I Am, That´s What I´m Not.
