I actuallly missed this show (not that I usually catch this awards anyways), but I did lookup who the winners were. I'm glad outkast walked off with so many awards because their album was exceptional. I was a bit dissappointed with a few of the winners though.
Anyhow, here's who i would have picked:

The Cure "The End Of The World"
Jay-Z "99 Problems" Outkast "Hey Ya!"

I saw it and I must say, dp strikes me as an incredibly humble person. Im very impressed by his character, especially given his paycheck and the celebrity status he enjoys.
His english was somewhat poor and both di canio and del piero failed to make much of an impact when they presented.
Franz Ferdinand was great, and was maybe the only performance i cared to remember
