The Q Awards 2004 Announces Winners





The Q Awards 2004 were given out last night in London where the UK magazine of the same name honors the year's best. Just when you think Scotch rockers Franz Ferdinand are about to walk away with the top prize, the best album goes to diet-Travis pop trio Keane and top song goes to the relatively unkown in the US Jamelia. Don't feel bad for the four-time nominated archdukes, though, as they did get an award for "Best Video". Wa wa we wa. But Chili Peppers voted best act in the world? Did someone say 1992? Was Hasselhoff busy?
