Arctic Monkeys win South Bank Award

Arctic Monkeys have triumphed over David Bowie to win a major arts gong.

Bowie's The Next Day, which marked the star's comeback, was nominated for the Pop Music trophy at this year's South Bank Sky Arts Awards.

But Arctic Monkeys' AM, their fifth album, scooped the award, also beating electronic music duo Disclosure's debut album Settle.

ITV thriller Broadchurch, starring Olivia Colman and David Tennant, won best TV drama, beating the BBC's Top Of The Lake and The Fall.

Steve Coogan's Oscar-nominated Philomena lost out in the film category to The Selfish Giant, Clio Barnard's story of the life of a teenage scrap scavenger.

Coogan also missed out on the comedy award, with rising star Bridget Christie's A Bic For Her (at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Soho Theatre) beating Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa.

The Outstanding Achievement Award was presented by comedian Frank Skinner to artist Tracey Emin.

The theatre gong was won by Let The Right One In (National Theatre of Scotland), beating Othello (The National Theatre) and Chimerica (Headlong and Almeida Theatre).

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson won the literature award.

The Sky Arts Awards were held at London's Dorchester hotel, hosted by Melvyn Bragg.
