The IIFA Awards brought the best and brightest of tinsel town to Toronto, Canada, this past weekend, for three days of star-studded ceremonies. If you missed even a moment of the three day extravaganza, fear not - Bollycurry comes to the rescue! Read on for the scorecard from the awards ceremony and see if it matches up with your predictions.

The mega-hit Dabangg, casting macho Salman Khan, swept the floor despite the evident absence of the Khan family at the event.

Best film: Dabangg
Best Performance [Negative role]: Sonu Sood
Best Screenplay Award: Abhinav Kashyap and Dilip Shukla
Floriana IIFA Award For Best Playback Female Singer [Munni Badnaam Hui]: Mamta Sharma

Best Debut-Female [Dabangg]: Sonakshi Sinha
Best Choreography Award [Munni Badnaam Hui]: Farah Khan
Best Action [Dabangg]: S Vijayan

However, Sallu did not bag the Best Actor award, which instead went to 'Baadshah' Shah Rukh Khan! His hit film My Name is Khan also bagged its fair share of accolades.

Best Actor-Male [My Name is Khan]: Shah Rukh Khan 
Best Director [My Name is Khan]:  Karan Johar
Best Lyrics [Sajda and Noor-e-Khuda]: Niranjan Iyengar
Best Story [My Name is Khan]: Shivani Bhatija
Best Background Score [My Name is Khan]: Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy

And then, to the dismay of Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and all the other usual prospects, the Best Actress award was presented to the talented Anushka Sharma, for playing the bubbly Shruti Kakkar in end of year release, Band Baja Baaraat.

Best Actor-Female [Band Baja Baaraat]: Anuskha Sharma

Best Song Recording [Ainvayi Ainvayi]: Vijay Dayal

The film Robot managed to grab some awards too, although not enough to be declared acclaimed.

Best Make-up [for Rajnikanth]: Banu
Best Art Direction [Robot]: Sabu Cyril
Best Special Effects [Robot]: Indian Artists

Telly queen Ekta Kapoor's first Bollywood film, Love, Sex Aur Dhokha which was received with widespread surprise and consequent praise, too won itself a trophy.

Best Sound Recording [Love, Sex Aur Dhokha] : Pritam Das

Moving on from Ekta to her protege, Prachi Desai after stealing hearts on small screen, has enamored one and all with her performance in Once Upon a Time in Mumbai.

Best Performance in a Supporting Role-Female [Once Upon a time in Mumbai]: Prachi Desai

Best Performance in a Supporting Role-Male [Rajneeti]: Arjun Rampal

Hrithik Roshan's Guzaarish did not go empty handed either.

Best Cinematography [Guzaarish]: Sudeep Chattarjee

And finally, Ritesh Deshmukh walked away with Best Actor in a Comic Role [Housefull].

Apart from those regular awards, here's a list of the specials.

50 Years Award: Dharmendra Deol
Outstanding Achievement in Indian Cinema [40 years]: Sharmila Tagore
Green Globe Award [fighting against global warming]: Priyanka Chopra
Achievement in International Cinema: Irffan Khan
Lifetime Achievement Award: Asha Bhosle

Several stars also took the stage to give the audience powerful performances and make the night a memorable one. Kangana Ranaut donned her perky Tanu Weds Manu avatar for a dance; Sunny, Bobby and Dharemendra Deol shook a leg in honor of the senior star's Golden Jubilee Award; Bipasha set the stage ablaze with her take on the item songs of the year; Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha  participated in what was dubbed as the 'Debuts of the Year Dance Challenge'; Priyanka Chopra gave a fitting tribute to the living legend Asha Bhonsle by dancing to her hits from then and now; and Shah Rukh Khan - ever the fan favorite - took part in an interactive medley with the audience rather than dancing for them because of his fractured knee.

The promo of Love Break Ups Zindagi was showcased during the awards, and the weekend included several other international premieres.

Hope you enjoyed that quick trip through IIFA 2011 in Toronto - stay tuned as BollyCurry continues to keep you posted on all the headlines that emerged from the weekend's festivities!

the whole show was pathetic in my opinion. terrible hosting, average performances, and dragged on forever! could've been so much better. the only plus point i can think of is the stage! that was gorgeous! well done for that!

It's really painful to see that Bollywood awards still look for famous people in a movie and not a good movie itself - to me the best movie of 2010 was Udaan by far.. low budget - new cast but what a movie and message and it was completely ignored

half of these awards were given to winners only because they were there awards m sure if salman was in that function he would have got the best actor award - it's only first come first serve condition - disappinted as always..

once again salman overloookd guys no offence to srk or his fans i also loved him in his film 4 me he was outstandin n i throughly enjoyed the film bt salman was equally excellent theres no other actor that could hav portrayed chulbul no 1- he was born to play this role- he was just fanatistic. n why is it that if an actor plays a mentally person they r sure to get an award- the iifa jury should really hav been different n given a diff sort of character lik chulbul the award n given both these actors the best actor award coz both were excellent in their roles. as 4 best actress havnt seen anushka or vidya films bt even if i did would stil go wit kajol coz of the sure fact that 2 stand out in a film were srk has such a role is mindblowin- really kudos to her 4 showin that she stil is the best actress in this industry coz seriously none of these actress the kareena, kat, pc could hav matchd srk in this film as much as she did. n i really respect her 4 choosin such strong female characters in her films n i wish we could see more of her than havin to watch size zero all the time.
