This is a list of awards and nominations received by the Killers, an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. After forming in late 2002 when Dave Keuning's advertisment in a music paper was answered by Brandon Flowers, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci Jr., a Warner Bros. employee recommended them to Lizard King Records, who signed them. The band consequently went to England to record their 2004 debut album Hot Fuss, which earned them five nominations at the 47th Grammy Awards and has sold over 5,000,000 copies.[1]

Their second album, Sam's Town was released in 2006 to mixed reviews. It won Best International Album at the 2007 BRIT Awards and has been the subject of a heated exchange between Flowers and Tom DeLonge.[2] The band's third studio album, Day & Age, was nominated for Best International Album at the 2009 BRIT Awards and was twice nominated at the 2009 NME Awards where the group won Best International Band. The fourth studio album, Battle Born, was released concurrent to the band winning its fourth NME Award for Best International Band.
