Brit Awards 2019 – all the winners & nominees

Posted on: Saturday 23rd of February 2019

It was a great night for The 1975 who were named Best Group, while their record A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships took the Best British Album. Ed Sheeran was honoured with the Global Success Award for the second year running, while Ariana Grande took Best International Female.

George Ezra, whose album Staying at Tamara’s was the second-biggest selling of 2018 after The Greatest Showman soundtrack, had three nominations, for British album, British male (for which he took the gong), and British single for ‘Shotgun’, which spent 12 weeks in the top three over the summer. As the only artist with one of the ten biggest-selling albums of the year in the male and album categories, his success and cross-generational appeal meant he’d already been established as a favourite.

Calvin Harris, who has been nominated for a Brit award 16 times, won his first Brit awards for Producer of the Year and Best British Single, with Dua Lipa, for ‘One Kiss’. Last year’s Brits Critics’ Choice winner, Jorja Smith, graduated to Best British Female while Best British Breakthrough act went to Tom Walker. The mostly male list of winners was interrupted by Little Mix and Nicki Minaj, who collected the award for Best British Video award for Woman Like Me.

Little Mix were one of the big success stories of the night, finally scooping the Best Video Artist award for Woman Like Me featuring Nicki Minaj. “WE never win this! Thank you so much we have had absolutely no shame in asking people every day to vote for this,” confessed Leigh-Anne Pinnock. There has been much criticism due to females being repeatedly snubbed in the video category in favour One Direction, who won in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, with Harry Styles winning as a solo artist for Sign of the Times last year.
