Amy Winehouse

Wino Wins But Loses, Really!


Yes, she really is wearing a hair clip with the name “Blake” on it.

Gag us with Pete Doherty’s dirty fingers!!!!!

Amy Winehouse may be cracked out, but she’s still sweeping up awards.

Wino walked away with the award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically for Love is a Losing Game at the 53rd Ivor Novello Awards on Thursday in London.

Hosted by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters, the Ivors celebrate excellence in songwriting.

In true Wino style, she arrived too late to collect her award, so her dad (Mitch pictured above with Wino mom Janis) had to accept it on her behalf.

“She’s sorry she can’t be here but she sends her love,” dad of Wino said. “She is getting better and she’d like to send her love to everyone at the Ivors who first recognized her talent.”

Wino eventually showed up!

Two of our dear friends took home honors as well. Mika was named Best Songwriter at the ceremony and Diane Warren received a special international award.
