The nominations for the 2022 Brit Awards have officially been announced, with Adele, Dave and Ed Sheeran leading the stars.

Britain’s biggest night in music is back, and it should be an absolutely huge one this year after we’ve had a spectacular year in music.

Of course, Adele has received plenty of nods, after she released her first album in six years, the record-breaking 30.

Dave has also been recognised for his incredible work on his album We’re All Alone In This Together.

Meanwhile, Ed also saw huge success with his latest album, = (Equals), with the star landing a fair few nominations.

Up for the coveted artist of the year prize are Adele, Dave, and Ed, along with Little Simz and Sam Fender.

The same nominees have received nods for the Mastercard album of the year category.

Stars including KSI and Maneskin have also received their first ever nominations.

The YouTube star-turned-rapper said: ‘I am grateful to my entire team and share these nominations with them and all the amazing creatives involved, as well as BMG and Atlantic and everyone else who played any role supporting me and my music.

‘Most of all to the fans!! I love you guys and wouldn’t be here without you. These nominations are ours!! We come a long way together and it’s only the beginning.’

Eurovision stars Maneskin added: ‘We are overjoyed with the news that we have received our first BRIT nominations today. It has been such a phenomenal year for us, but one that we’ve been working toward from the moment we started playing together on the streets of Rome as teenagers.’

Paul Mescal Receives Apology From BBC After Broadcaster Makes Rather Awkward Blunder

His tweet clarifying his nationality may have been the most liked post in Ireland three years ago, but the BBC has had to apologise after getting a crucial fact about Oscar nominee Paul Mescal wrong.

Earlier this week the Irish actor was announced as one of the nominees for the upcoming Academy Awards.

The 26-year-old, who is from Maynooth, was given the nod for his leading role in indie flick Aftersun in the Actor in a Leading Role category.

In March, Paul will be going up against Austin Butler (Elvis), Brendan Fraser (The Whale), Bill Nighy (Living) and fellow Irishman Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin) in the prestigious category.

But when covering the nominations, the national broadcaster made a rather awkward error.

In text appearing on screen, the BBC reported: ‘2023 Oscar nominations: British actors Paul Mescal and Bill Nighy are nominated for leading role.’

It has now apologised for the mistake, issuing a statement that read: ‘In text running across the screen we reported that Paul Mescal was one of two British actors who had been nominated for an Oscar for a leading role.’

‘The text should have said that Paul Mescal is Irish. We apologise for the mistake.’

When the mistake was made, plenty of people pointed it out and reminded the media outlet that Paul is very much Irish.

‘BBC news seems to not know Paul Mescal is IRISH,’ one person wrote.

Another added: ‘The BBC should know that Paul Mescal isn’t British.’

It wasn’t the first time this has happened though.

Back in 2020, when Paul picked up an Emmy nomination for his breakthrough role in Normal People, outlets including The Guardian called him British.

It lead the actor to tweet ‘I’m Irish’, which ended up becoming the most-liked post in his home country that year.

The message quickly racked up over 130,000 likes as well as over 12,000 retweets and over 1,600 replies.

His Oscar nomination helped break a record for Ireland too, with the country securing 14 nominations in the upcoming awards ceremony.

Other actors to get nods included Barry Keoghan, Brendan Gleeson and Kerry Condon.

When his nomination was announced Paul said it was ‘truly a special moment for everyone involved in Aftersun’.

‘To be recognised by the Academy is such an insane honour and I’m so utterly grateful.’

How Many Legs Are in the Carabao Cup Semi-finals? All the Rules Explained

Published

on

The Carabao Cup semi-finals continue tonight with Nottingham Forest welcoming Manchester United at the City Ground.

The winner of the tie will face either Newcastle United or Southampton in the final at Wembley on February 26.

With the regulations changing from one competition to another, here is your full lowdown of the rules in play across the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup 2023.

Are the Carabao Cup semi-finals played over two legs?

Yes, the Carabao Cup semi-finals will take place over two legs.

Newcastle beat Southampton 1-0 in the first leg of the first semi-final on Tuesday night, with the return leg scheduled for Tuesday, January 31 at 8pm.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will host Nottingham Forest in the second leg of their semi-final on Wednesday, February 1 at 8pm.

VAR is in use for the first time in the Carabao Cup this season, having not featured in earlier rounds to ensure fairness across every tie.

Will extra-time and penalties be used in the Carabao Cup semi-finals?

If the score is level after the end of both legs then extra-time, and if required penalties, will be used to determine the winner.

This is the first time this season that matches finishing level in the Carabao Cup will head to extra-time, with ties previously proceeding straight to penalties in the event of a draw after 90 minutes.

The away goals rule will also not be in use for the two semi-finals.

The English Football League scrapped the rule ahead of the 2018/19, which up until that point only came into effect following the conclusion of extra-time.

How many substitutes are allowed in the Carabao Cup?

Managers will be able to use up to five substitutes across three windows during the game (half-time not included).

An extra substitution is permitted in extra-time, whilst both teams can also use two concussion substitutes if required.
