In the end, Mogwai emerged victorious, picking up the trophy for their 10th studio album - and first UK chart No. 1 - .

Guitarist Stuart Braithwaite claimed the gong, and dedicated the win to the group's long-time booking agent Mike Griffiths, who passed away earlier this month.

He commented onstage: “I really was not expecting this. I have not thought of anything to say other than thank you and I wish I’d got steaming. This has been a really mental year for the band. Loads of things have happened that we didn’t think would happen and this is just another. This is nuts.”
