    One of the UK's most prestigious songwriting award ceremonies, the Ivor Novello Awards, took place in London last night and saw some of the UK's brightest—and most notorious—stars taking home the awards. Unsurprisingly, the hard-living soul songstress Amy Winehouse took home the prize for best contemporary song for her breakaway hit "Rehab." The song's success is also a sign that cathartic songwriting over bad break-ups sometimes works. Winehouse married her former ex-boyfriend and inspiration for the song, Blake Fielder-Civil, last week.

    Other winners included rock phenoms Arctic Monkeys for their album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, Madonna for "Sorry," Elton John for

    Scissor Sisters' international dancefloor romp "I Don't Feel LIke Dancin'," and Peter Gabriel, who received a Lifetime Achievement award.
