Trio Of Ivor Novello Nominations For Amy Winehouseby Contributor | 21 April 2008
Amy Winehouse is in the running for three Ivor Novello awards after the nominations were published today.
The 24-year-old has been named in the best song musically and lyrically category twice for Love is a Losing Game and You Know I'm No Good.
She is also nominated for the best-selling British song award for Rehab, the song which won her the best contemporary song gong last year.
All three songs are from Winehouse's breakthrough album Back to Black, which has already won five Grammys and a Brit award.
Up against the singer in the best song category, won by Scott Matthews for Elusive last year, is Let Me Out, written by Rosi Galan and Jamie Hartman and performed by Ben's Brother.
Atonement and Oliver Twist lead the way in the film and television score categories, while In Rainbows is expected to win the same award for Radiohead as it did for the Arctic Monkeys last year for Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not.
The winners of the Ivors will be announced at the Grosvenor House hotel on May 22nd.
