The Muse Awards!

Simple concept, what do you personally think are Muse's 'Best' in each of the following categories? I know there are tons of threads about what's your fave this or the best that, but this one kinda sums it all up in an award-ceremony stylie (lolwut).

You can picture red carpets, trophies, aliens, zetas and whathaveyou if you want... and the best part is, no matter what you've selected as the winner, Muse will always be the ones collecting the award! Yes, I have no life...

Bloody 'ell that's a lot of categories . Add more if you can think of any, I've run outta ideas . You can use the above as a template and paste your answers in. So, get voting!

PS - it might be fun to make a 'Worst' equivalent thread for all those categories, too...
