In true Oscar-style, Ashutosh Gowariker's historical romance "Jodhaa Akbar" swept the International Indian Film Acadmey (IIFA) awards 2009 here Saturday with a perfect 10 bag of trophies, being named the best film and fetching its male lead Hrithik Roshan the best actor award and Gowariker the best director award. 

Priyanka Chopra was named the best actress for essaying the trials and tribulations of the style industry in "Fashion". 

The award for the best female in a supporting role went to Kangana Ranaut for her performance as a down-in-the-dumps model in "Fashion", while Arjun Rampal walked away with the award for best male actor in a supporting role trophy for playing an unsuccessful and brooding musician in "Rock On!" 

Abhishek Bachchan got the best comic actor for his performance in "Dostana" and immediately dedicated it to wife Aishwarya Rai and ailing Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh. 

The award for best actor in a negative role went to Akshaye Khanna for "Race". Anil Kapoor received the award as Akshay had to leave for some personal work. Neeraj Pandey was given IIFA best story award for his critically acclaimed "A Wednesday". 

"Lagaan" was declared the best movie of the decade, veteran Rajesh Khanna was given the lifetime achievement award, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai were respectively declared the male and female actors of the decade, Rakesh Roshan was named director of the decade and double Oscar-winning A.R. Rahman was honoured with the composer of the decade award. 

This set of honours were meant to commemorate 10 years of IIFA awards. 

Rahman was also named the best music director for his soulful compositions in "Jodhaa Akbar". The music maestro couldn't attend the event and Gowariker received the award on his behalf. 

The best male playback singer award went to Javed Ali for crooning "Jashn-e-bahaara" in "Johdaa Akbar", while Shreya Ghoshal was named the best female playback singer for "Teri ore" in hit romantic comedy "Singh is Kinng". 

Well-known Bollywood writer Javed Akhtar won the best lyricist award for penning the song "Jashn-e-bahaara" for "Jodhaa Akbar". 

Aishwarya, the daughter-in-law of IIFA brand ambassador Amitbabh Bachchan, was honoured with a special award for an outstanding achievement in international cinema. 

Director-turned actor Farhan Akhtar got the best male debutant of the year award for "Rock On!", while Asin Thottumkal got best female debut award for action thriller "Ghajini". 

"Jodhaa Akbar" bagged the maximum technical awards at IIFA. 

While ace designer Neeta Lulla walked away with the best costume design award for "Jodhaa Akbar", best editing trophy went to Ballu Saluja and best art direction to Nitin Chandrakant Desai for the Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai starrer historical romance. Best Make Up award went to Madhav Kadam for the same film. 

Resul Pokkutty, who made history by winning an Oscar for his work in "Slumdog Millionaire", bagged sound recording trophy for Aamir Khan starrer "Ghajini". 

The best cinematography award went to Jason West for "Rock On!" and the best choreography award went to Farah Khan for the song "Desi girl" in "Dostana". 

Among the winners in the technical category, Farah and Jason were not present at the event. 

After enthralling the audience in Bangkok last year, the prestigious International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) is here again! 

Celebrating the spirit of Indian cinema in the exotic locale of the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel, the tenth edition of IIFA will be held from 11 – 13 June 2009. 

With Amitabh Bachchan as its brand ambassador, the tenth IIFA Awards will be a star-studded affair that showcases various artists shaking their leg at the fabulous event. Speaking in an interview about the tenth IIFA year, a proud Bachchan said, “I am delighted to see IIFA celebrate its 10th year. The Indian and international reception to IIFA has grown over the years, cementing its position as a significant larger than life phenomenon. This year at IDEA IIFA Awards, we pay tribute to the greats of Indian cinema through the Lifetime Achievement Awards and the Videocon Golden Decade Honours. We are committed to presenting the talent India has to offer, while giving audiences a chance to experience their film favourites.”

Of late, amidst all the hype of IIFA 2009, the award function has merely become a la Bachchan affair, indeed it has become a family drama. Grapevine has it that King Khan Shah Rukh has bailed out the personal invite of Big B, courtesy the Bachchans’ overbearing presence at the show! Well, it won’t be a revelation of sorts to witness Amitabh, Aishwarya and Abhishek ruling the roost at the event as Big B will boogie with Peter Andre, where the singer will be crooning his hits like Flava, Only One, Lets Get It On, Insania and I Feel You among others.

Well, IIFA 2009 will be a disappointment of sorts with many A-list actors giving it a complete miss! Apart from Shah Rukh Khan, another Khan who has declined to be part of the show is none other than Aamir Khan. If Shah Rukh is busy with the shooting of his upcoming flick ‘My Name Is Khan’, ‘Gajini’ actor Aamir is fabled for his extreme aversion for award functions. Along with the Khans, Sanjay Dutt, Fardeen Khan, Ajay Devgan, Priety Zinta, Rani Mukherjee, John Abraham, Ranbir Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are some prominent stars who will be missing in action! 

Nevertheless, along with the Bachchan double whammy (Abhishek and Aishwarya), the only saving grace of IIFA 2009 are Bollywood siren Kareena Kapoor, newbie Sonam Kapoor and dimpled actor Shahid Kapur shaking a leg with Riteish Deshmukh, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta - the hosts for the prestigious event. 

Choreographed by none other than dancing maestro Prabhu Deva, IIFA 2009 will be graced by numerous celebrities. The most anticipated feat will be the much awaited performance of Salman Khan, who will be promoting his upcoming flick ‘Wanted’. 

Indeed, IIFA 2009 promises to be bigger and better event that brings you the best of Bollywood and all its glitz and glamour – a la Bachchan mode!

Get ready to watch Bollywood stars coming under one roof and celebrating the pinnacle of Indian cinema in Macau, China. Watch out for IIFA 2009, under the benign shadow of the Big B, of course!
