yeah, unfortunately they're not showing the actual awards ceremony. just a bunch of reeeally boring people talking about irish music.... but you can hear the awards in the background! and on the hot press website they're listing all the winners.

i wish i could see this awards show- well, at least hopefully we'll get some new photos tomorrow!

btw, U2 lost to ash for best single.

A genuinely shocked Andrea thanked Hot Press, John Hughes and "Daddy", receiving the award from Anna Nolan.
