Brit Awards 2018 Nominations: The 8 Biggest Snubs

This year’s Brit Awards nominations have been revealed, and it’s fair to say they contain some surprises.

However, it’s not so much who has been nominated that has got everyone talking, rather than who HASN’T.

After some of 2017′s biggest artists failed to scoop a single nomination – with others also confusingly absent from some categories, despite releasing material within the eligible period – we take a look at the biggest snubs.

Sam SmithBest Male / Best Album / Best Single

Ed Sheeran aside, Sam Smith was the most sure-fire name to be nominated in the Best Male and Best Album categories, but he is mysteriously absent from from the complete list of 2018 nominees – and this is despite having one of the biggest albums of last year on both sides of the Atlantic.

Clean Bandit Best Group

Clean Bandit dominated the singles chart in 2017 but failed to receive a nod in the Best British Group category.

The snub must have been pretty difficult to stomach considering they’d also literally just finished performing on the nominations show when this category was revealed.

Little MixBest Group

Little Mix have not been nominated for Best British Group. We repeat: Little Mix have not been nominated for Best British Group. OUTRAGEOUS.

Anne-Marie Best Female

While bosses have nominated fellow 2017 Critics Choice nominee Dua Lipa in this category, Anne-Marie failed to make the cut for Best Female, despite having an almost-equally successful 12
