Full Winners List of 2008 Q Awards


Coldplay


Coldplay took double dosage, Duffy beat Adele, and David Gilmour made tribute to his late bandmate.

Coldplay are newly crowned double winners at the 2008 Q Awards. The rock band were hailed Best Act in the World Today and their latest album "Viva la Vida" was given the honor as Best Album. "I don't think we're the best act in the room, let alone the world," Chris Martin, the band's frontman said.

The British event also saw winnings from Duffy, The Last Shadow Puppets, Keane, and Kaiser Chiefs. Duffy beat Adele and Santogold but she could not attend the event to receive the award. Puppets, which is a side project by Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner, picked up Best New Act. Turner appearing solo said, "Thank you very much. I understand it's voted by the readers so this means a lot of course. Unfortunately my partner couldn't be here because he had some trouble with the trains."

A tribute session was given to Pink Floyd's David Gilmour who received the Outstanding Contribution to Music. Gilmour then dedicated the honor to his late bandmate, Richard Wright who died out of cancer last month. "I'm going to dedicate this, if you don't mind, to my old friend and colleague Richard Wright who died a couple of weeks ago, (and) with whom I had worked for 40-odd years now, " he said on the acceptance speech.

"That's now come to an end. There's all sorts of music that I will not be able to play again without him. That's a source of sadness for me. He deserves this as much as I do. You could say that he was in the position of second fiddle, slightly behind some of the pushier chaps in the front. But his work was mighty important to our entire careers."
