Ozzy Osbourne — and we’re sure he’d agree, Randy Rhoads — have been declared the winners in the Best Box Set category of the 2011 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards.

Osbourne’s ‘Blizzard of Ozz / Diary of a Madman 30th Anniversary’ box set snagged an impressive 32% of the vote, comfortably beating Pink Floyd‘s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon: Immersion Edition’ set, which garnered 26% of the vote.

Rush landed in third with their ‘Sector’ road case and 17%, followed by the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s ‘Winterland,’ the Who‘s ‘Quadrophenia – the Director’s Cut’ and the Beach Boys‘ ‘The Smile Sessions Box Set.’

Osbourne’s 30th anniversary box set featuring his first two solo albums, ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ and ‘Diary of a Madman,’ is a worthy tribute to the work Ozzy did during his all-to-brief time with Rhoads — and an equally worthy winner in the Best Box Set category of the UCR Awards. In addition to those two classic albums, the collection also includes a previously unreleased live show from the ‘Blizzard’ tour, plus a DVD featuring tons of vintage performance footage and much more.

All told, over 230,000 people voted in the 2011 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards. You can see the final results for the Best Box Set voting below, and then click to find out who won in the other nine categories.
