Despite some nominations, no Irish artists walked away from the ceremony with awards.
At this year's Ivor Novello awards, Harry Styles, Lianne La Havas, Dave and Fraser T Smith were some of the big winners.
The ceremony turned out to be a good old-style music industry bash, with attendees clearly hugely enjoying the new feeling of freedom which the move out of lockdown in the UK has engendered.
Styles walked away with the PRs for Music Most Performed Work award for his track, 'Adore You.' La Havas won Best Album for her third studio album, Lianne La Havas, and Dave and Fraser T Smith won the Best Contemporary Song award for 'Children of the Internet.'
Other winners from the awards include Celeste and Jamie Hartman, Willow Kayne, Blanck Mass, Geoff Barrow, Ben Salisbury, The Insects, Gareth Coker, and more.
The Special International award with Apple Music was awarded to Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, and the Ivors Inspiration Award was given to Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory.
Despite some nominations for Irish artist like Fontaines D.C., who were nominated for Best Album for A Hero's Death, there were no Irish winners this year.
"There may be a bit of a Brexit effect in play," one music industry insider commented.
