OZZY OSBOURNE Up For 'Brummie Of The Year' Award

December 6, 2003

Neil Elkes of Evening Mail is reporting that Ozzy Osbourne is among the celebrities competing for the "Brummie of the Year" award.

Creator Jon Bounds said the award was created to honor Birmingham, England-born and -bred icons who epitomize the down-to-earth qualities of the city.

He said: "The one thing that the people of Birmingham prize above all is lack of pretence and what better way to celebrate this than an award for public figures who demonstrate that quality to the world."

Nine celebrities are nominated for the grand title of "Brummie of the Year" — to be announced at an award ceremony at the Bull's Head pub on Price Street next Friday night.

Currently poet Benjamin Zephaniah leads the online poll for his principled rejection of the OBE last week, closely followed by MP Clare Short and radio favorite Les Ross.

Other nominees are Jasper Carrott, Julie Waters, Frank Skinner, Cat Deeley and Mad Malik.
