London, Jan 21 (ANI): English pop group Take That has been snubbed by the Brit Awards Voting Academy again despite being Britains favourite band.

The band, consisting of Gary Barlow, Jason Orange, Howard Donald and Mark Owen, have received just one nomination this year, with Coldplay and Duffy getting four each.

Despite their album The Circus having been sold a million copies faster than any other album, the boys landed in the same category as Elbow, Girls Aloud, Radiohead and Chris Martin and Co, battling for the Best Group gong.

According to the organisers, voting is by 1,000 members from across the music industry, including DJs, critics and students, and surprisingly the band has not even been chosen for Best Album.

When the band had won the Best Single award and the British Live Act prize, which had been chosen by fans, Barlow was not very pleased.

Its amazing that when the public vote we always do well, the Sun quoted Barlow as having said then.

But it gets to me that when weve been nominated for other awards, we get overlooked. Its a disgrace. I thought we were in with a shout this year but it just goes to show we dont fit the mould, he had added.

The ceremony, which will see the Pet Shop Boys receive the Outstanding Contribution to Music award, will take place at Londons Earls Court on February 18. (ANI)
