Another day, another batch of nominations for Amy Winehouse, who today leads the charge for the Ivor Novello awards, which reward excellence in songwriting.
Winehouse, who is believed to be currently recording the theme tune for the new James Bond film, is nominated three times: twice in the best song musically and lyrically category, for her songs Love is a Losing Game and You Know I'm No Good, and once in the best-selling British song category, for Rehab.
The awards have gained in importance in recent years and cover a broader range of popular music than more mainstream ceremonies like the Brits.
For example, alongside Winehouse in the best song category sit Bens Brother, a fivepiece band yet to find mainstream success in the UK. The same applies to Cherry Ghost, whose sales have not matched their critical acclaim, but who have received nominations in the best contemporary song and best-selling UK single category.
Other less well-known performers to receive recognition include Steven Fretwell and Just Jack, who are nominated alongside bigger names like Kate Nash and Mika.
The awards ceremony for this year's Ivor Novello awards will take place in London on May 22. Click here for a full list of nominations.
Another eight awards - ranging from international achievement to songwriters of the year - have no shortlist and will be presented on the day. Last year's awards saw the Arctic Monkeys claim best album for Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not. Amy Winehouse also won last year, in the best contemporary song category, for Rehab, also a nominee this year.
Ivor Novello was an actor, singer and celebrated writer of musicals between the wars. Often described as "the most handsome man in England" he was also the author of such songs as Keep the Home Fires Burning and We'll Gather Lilacs. The awards took his name after his death in the 1950s.
