Nominees for the  annual Woodie Awards, a public-vote enterprise established in 2005 by college music channel MTVu, were also announced today. While no female artists are up for the overall Woodie Of The Year award, or indeed in the Performing Woodie (i.e. live) category, the other four categories include artists as diverse as Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Dead Weather to La Roux and Alicia Keys. The Best Video Woodie category includes The Dead Weather’s gun-toting video for ‘Treat Me Like Your Mother’, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ bloody clip for ‘Heads Will Roll’, Anjulie’s fantastical ‘Boom’ and Matt & Kim’s public nudity promoting ‘Lessons Learned’. La Roux is carrying the flag for women in the Breaking Woodie category, up against the likes of Friendly Fires, Grizzly Bear, Never Shout Never, Passion Pit and Wale, while in the Left Field Woodie category, Janelle Monae and Amanda Blank are competing with Jay Reatard, Major Lazer and Tech N9ne.
