Kasabian are also named in the same two categories - the latter for their 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' LP - as well as picking up a nomination for Song Of The Year for their single 'Fire'.
The other nominees for Best Album are Paul Weller's recent release 'Wake Up The Nation', Richard Hawley's 'Truelove's Gutter' and harpist Joanna Newsom's 'Have One On Me'.
