"I now know what it's like to be the token subtitled European film at the Oscars. You get nominated for everything, but know damn well you're not going to win. We're perennial first divisioners, bearing in mind there is a Premiership now. We're respected in some terms but it's obvious we're not the world's biggest band and we don't win many things. I was surprised to be honest. "Oasis are just soft boys. They probably haven't had their ration of Casing chips and gravy today so they're just a bit laity. Its like housewives who haven't had their Valium for the day." James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers)

"I'm very pleased we won the Brat for Best Session. I remember recording it very clearly 'cos Richey had just been hospitalised. We didn't rehearse at all but we threw ourselves into it and, fortunately, it worked. "But I think it was the losers' award. It's like when Paul Newman got his Oscar for The Color Of Money - it was a sympathy vote. I'm not saying we should've won more, 'cos I think the bands who won everything deserved it for selling the most records. "It's a pity that Kurt Cobain and Nirvana didn't win anything. That showed the prejudices of British music fans. I'm not going to the party - I'm going back to Wales now to see my wife. I never go to parties." Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers)
