David Bowie returned this year with his latest album, The Next Day, which was released somewhat suddenly back in January but despite this he has failed to pick up any prizes in the six awards he was nominated for at this year's Q Awards.

Bowie had been in the running for such prestigious awards as Best Solo Artist, Best Act in the World and Best Album, but lost out to Ellie Goulding, Vampire Weekend and Biffy Clyro respectively.

Bowie had returned this year with his 24th album which had been lauded by critics unanimously, with Q itself praising the records for being a “loud, thrilling, steamrolling confident rock and roll album”. He did not attend the ceremony this afternoon at London’s Grosvenor Hotel, and didn’t pick up any awards either.

Others who did win though included the Glastonbury Festival which picked up the gong for Best Event, beating competition in this category from Bowie’s V&A exhibition and Kraftwerk’s series of 3D live shows at Tate Modern.

The Pet Shop Boys were given the Outstanding Contribution To Music award, with former Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde picking up the Classic Songwriter award and rock band Suede named as Q Icons.
