<i>Good afternoon. It was announced earlier that Coldplay have been nominated for the Best Act In The World Today award at this year's Q Awards, which will take place in London on Monday, October 26th. Coldplay were nominated for - and won - the same award last year. If you'd like to vote for the band to retain their crowd, then please click <a href=http://awards.qthemusic.com/ target="_blank">here</a> (thanks folks). Anchorman</i>


Sheffield band the Arctic Monkeys lead this year's Q Awards with four nominations, while Oasis, who recently announced their split, are up for two prizes. Among other artists with multiple nominations for the music publication's annual awards were U2, Florence & The Machine, The Prodigy, Kasabian and Dizzee Rascal. The prizes are handed out on October 26.


Arctic Monkeys, who have just released their third album, appear on the shortlist for best track ("Crying Lightning"), best live act, best album ("Humbug") and best act in the world. Manchester's Oasis have been nominated for best live act and best act in the world, despite songwriter and guitarist Noel Gallagher announcing last month that he had quit the band due to a bust up with his brother and frontman Liam.


"The nominations are compiled from votes cast in their thousands by Q's readers, listeners, viewers and online users, so they reflect the choice of the nation's music fans," said Q Magazine editor-in-chief Paul Rees.
