  1. I think the winners are well justified...... perfect example of best jury decisions.

  2. It's a joke that Aamir Khan did not win the Best Actor award. Shame on IIFA.

  3. The biggest shame is Chetan Bhagat not being considered as the story writer for "3 Idiots"...everyone knows it was lifted from "five point someone.."...........Just like da Oscars, there shud be two categories....original and adapted screenplays

  4. stupid award wher da hell is salman wht did hrithik roshan do 4 indian cinema...instead salman shud get coz hez been in bollywood more dan hrithik....haha fake award ...yeah aamir deserves an award...n i don thnk kareena shud win coz she dosnt hav much role in 3 idiots

  5. the 3-idiots had to take away the show!!!!
    never saw such a gr8 movie like that!!
    but i guess kareena didnt deserve the best actor(female).she didnt hav much role. i think vidya balan deserved it.she was excellent in paa


  7. Kaminey....the best action award.....very funny..................

  8. anybody can buy iifa awards so it doesnt matter who win the awards amitabh bhachan and sharukh always buys iifa awards

  9. ewwww WHO LIKES SRK--JERKS!! no offence to u of corsee. ahahahah bt salman SHOULD have wom. salmans bin in film industry ft over 20 years . ohhh well atleaast salmans nt cheap enoughh to BUY his awards nd he only thrives on real good actingg<3 GOOO SALMANN KHANN<33<---to all SRK LOVERS BTW SRK CUD MEAN ANYTHINGGG!!!! ahah nvm byee<3 wait wait wait GOOO SALMANNN KHANNN againn<3

  10. aamir khan deserved the best actor and he would have got it if he would have taken a little trouble to appear at iifa

  11. The award i liked the best which is given to vivek oberoi for global green cause..........& he has always done some thning gud for these things.....

  12. wot an injustice.hw cud amitabh get an award 4 a shit movie paa......obviously aamir shud hav got an award for 3 idiots..itz not at all justified......huh..!!

  13. i think atif aslam is the best male singer for tu jaane na(ajab prem ki.....).atif is the best. Shaan does not deserve this award.

  14. its just like comedy circus

  15. the ifas were awasome(off the grill)amazing cant wai fo nxt year

  16. what a waste IIFA is to the indian community and the global viewing audience at large, clearly, South Indian cinema has no place in Bollywood, however the actors&actresses who "appear" to have "talent" have no difficulty crossing over into mainstream- this is utter prejudice against the South Indian community and a blatant disregard for a "hate-free, colour-free" nation.. clearly Bollywood shows no such sentiment and should be penalised for their actions...a message to the fans, whon majority of which are South Indian- STOP supporting this campaign of dark vs. light skinned and talent vs. opportunists.... As for IIFA2010- Salman and Aamir had my vote, i wouldnt support anyone who had hidden agendas and would be called "traitors" by their own people..HINT HINT!! tx> no longer a fan***

  17. sub award yashraj aur karanjohar srk ke hi home production ko hi dete hai wo to milne ke kabil bhi nahi rahte.aise aise award ka koi fayda nahi. aur srk amitab aur hritik ke alawa bhi actor hai inko malum nahi.

  18. i think amir should deserve the award 4 3-idiots
