Did the right stars win the Bollywood awards?

     Next

Next
Even with so many hits last year, two films dominated the recent Bollywood award ceremonies: My Name Is Khan and Dabangg.

The awards seem to be neatly divided between the two movies, with a few trophies thrown in for smaller films like Ishqiya, Udaan and Band Baaja Baraat.

We take a close look at the winners, and some deserving nominees, at the four major award shows: The Filmfare, Star Screen, Zee Cine and Apsara awards.

Go through the categories, and vote for the star/film you think really deserved the award!

Best Actor

Shah Rukh Khan bagged the Best Actor award for My Name Is Khan, left, at the Filmfare and Zee Cine awards. Salman Khan bagged the award at the Star Screen and Apsara awards, for Dabangg.

Some nominees in this category were just as deserving.

Ajay Devgn played a credible gangster in Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai; Akshay Kumar was hilarious in Housefull; Naseeruddin Shah was lovable in Ishqiya; Rishi Kapoor made an unusual hero in Do Dooni Char; Ranbir Kapoor played against type in Raajneeti, and Hrithik Roshan delivered what some believe was a career-best performance in Guzaarish.

Kajol bagged the Best Actress award at Filmfare for MNIK. Vidya Balan, left, won the prize at the three other award shows, for Ishqiya.

We've seen better from Kajol, but Vidya was amazingly good.

Of course, other actresses did well too.

Anushka Sharma stole the show with her spunky performance in Band Baaja Baraat.

Katrina Kaif showed she could act in Raajneeti; Kareena Kapoor showed off her comic skills in Golmaal 3; Deepika Padukone showed off her romantic side in Break Ke Baad, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was better than her recent roles in Guzaarish.

Arjun Rampal seemed the favourite for Raajneeti, left, where he played a murderous politician.

Other winners in this category, and quite deservedly, were Ronit Roy (Udaan) and Arshad Warsi (Ishqiya).

Other nominees included Naseeruddin Shah (Ishqiya); Raghubir Yadav (Peepli [Live]); Ram Kapoor (Udaan) and Vikram (Raavan).

Prachi Desai dumped her girl-next-door image and played a gangstaa's moll in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. She won.

Shernaaz Patel also won for her work in Guzaarish.

Kareena Kapoor, left, bagged a Filmfare award for her appalling work in We Are Family. But then she performed at the event, so conspiracy theorists can connect the dots.

Kangna Ranaut and Lara Dutta were nominated for Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai and Housefull, but lost.

Neha Chauhan was nominated for Love Sex Aur Dhokha, but fat chance the award juries would salute a newcomer.

The Star Screen awards jury refused to bow down to the big releases of the year, and preferred to honour Udaan in the Best Film category.

The other three award shows picked the biggest blockbuster of the year: Producer Arbaaz Khan's Dabangg, left.

The films with the best reviews -- Band Baaja Baarat, Udaan, Peepli [Live] -- did not win awards in this category neither did the hits Raajneeti, Golmaal 3, MNIK and Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai.

Whatever the recent Koffee controversies, Karan Johar, left, inset, has no dearth of backers in movie town.

KJo bagged the Best Director prize for MNIK, left, even though the film is clearly not among his best.

Star Screen awarded Vikramaditya Motwane for Udaan.

Maneesh Sharma bagged the Best Debut Director trophy for Band Baaja Baraat.

Other contenders in the category: Newcomers Anusha Rizvi (Peepli [Live]) and Abhinav Kashyap (Dabangg); Sanjay Leela Bhansali (Guzaarish); Prakash Jha (Raajneeti); and Dibakar Banerjee (Love Sex Aur Dhokha).

Ranveer Singh, left, bowled over all juries and bagged all awards in this category for his effortless Bittu Sharma (Band Baaja Baraat).

The other newcomers didn't stand a chance: Ali Zafar (Tere Bin Laden); Omkar Das Manikpuri (Peepli [Live]); Rajat Barmecha (Udaan) and Suriya (Rakht Charitra).

Of course, this doesn't mean that these talented actors didn't deserve a trophy.

Munni Badnaam Hui, featuring Malaika Arora-Khan, left, was the anthem of 2010. So it came as no surprise when its composers Sajid-Wajid, inset, bagged all the awards.

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy shared some of S-W's glory for MNIK at the Star Screen awards.

Bollywood gave us many chartbusters last year. Take a bow, Pritam (Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai); Vishal-Shekhar (Anjaana Anjaani, I Hate Luv Storys, Tees Maar Khan); Vishal Bhardwaj (Ishqiya); S-E-L (Karthik Calling Karthik, Housefull) and Amit Trivedi (Udaan).
