Two Q awards have been handed to Coldplay.
Coldplay have scooped two awards at the 2008 Q magazine awards, with frontman Chris Martin attempting to bore the crowd when he collected the accolades.
The group won best album prize for latest offering Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends and then took the best band in the world title.
While collecting the first award, the singer said he would bore the audience and embarked on a long acceptance speech, which at one point labelled Coldplay "the greatest band in the world".
However, he quipped: "U2 are on holiday."
When he returned to the stage for the best act in the world award, Chris commented: "I don't think we're the best act in the room, let alone the world."
Other awards handed out include the breakthrough artist award to Duffy, best comeback single for Keane's Spiralling and the Last Shadow Puppets declared best new act.
Recently, Coldplay announced they will collaborate with Jay-Z on their new Prospekts March EP, to be released on November 24th.
