The 'Hall Of Fame' stars reveal they would love to be recognised for their work but concede it "doesn't matter" either way.
The Script have confessed that it would be "incredible" if they were to pick up a nomination for a prize at the BRIT Awards 2013.
The nominations for this year's event will be announced during a ceremony in London later today (10th January), and the group's frontman Danny O'Donoghue told Capital that a nod would be a great achievement but is not something they go out looking for.
"Of course any type of tip of the hat you know is incredible. But I think as most musicians know, it's not about that for us," he said. |"It's just about the music."
He continued: "We're not one of the most awarded bands or critically acclaimed bands, but it doesn't stop us from making really heartfelt music that we want to make. If we're recognised for that – fantastic. If not, it doesn't matter."
The band picked up their first nomination back in 2011 when they were shortlisted for Best International Group, losing out to Canadian stars Arcade Fire.
Tom Odell is the only artist already confirmed to pick up an award after winning the Critics' Choice prize and will receive his prize from last year's recipient Emeli Sande later today.
