Amy Winehouse Nominated For Posthumous Brit

Amy Winehouse has been posthumously nominated for a Brit award for her work on Lioness: Hidden Treasures.

Amy previously won the Best British Female award in 2007 following the release of her second album, Back To Black. Apparently, Amy is the first posthumous nominee for the award. Freddie Mercury won a Brit two months after his death in 1992, his gong was a Lifetime Achievement Award, which is assigned in advance of the actual ceremony.

Other nominees in Amy's category include Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith, Bat For Lashes and Jessie Ware. Emeli told the BBC that being nominated is "a really good feeling. It feels great, a bit scary, because you never know, you might not win anything.

"It feels great to have this acknowledgement and recognition. And to come back here after winning the Critics' Choice and to be nominated is really, really cool."

A second inquest into Amy Winehouse's death confirmed a verdict of death by misadventure after the singer died of alcohol poisoning.

According to Mail Online, her father Mitch said that he was not surprised by the ruling, but was angered by the "preposterous" series of mistakes that led to the need for the second inquest after it was found that the first coroner was not properly qualified.
