The award for the most atrocious lyrics went to Amitabh Bhattacharyya for ‘Pyar do pyar lo’ (‘Thank You’), ‘Jigar ka tukda’ (‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’), and ‘Mutton’ song (‘Luv Ka The End’). ‘Teri meri’ from ‘Bodyguard’ was named most irritating song.

Prateik was given the for worst supporting actor award for ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ and ‘Aarakshan’.

A special Platinum Kela award was however given to filmmaker Kanti Shah for excellence in cinema. "I'm feeling good at being invited at the event. It's special because it’s been organised by true fans of my style of movie-making. I have been to other award shows as well, but this definitely is special being solely driven by fans of my movies," said Shah, on receiving the award.

Actor Pankaj Kapoor's maiden directorial venture ‘Mausam’ got the Bawra Ho Gaya Ke Award, while Chirag Paswan won the worst debutante for ‘Miley Na Miley Hum’, and Esha Deol won the award for the worst attempt at a comeback for ‘Tell Me O Kkhuda’.

The Lajja award for worst treatment of a serious issue went to ‘Aarakshan’ and Pritam was awarded the Bas Kijiye Bohut Ho Gaya award.

However, there was a special category of 'Anti-Kela' awards for the films that were the saving graces of 2011. The recipients were ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’, ‘Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster’, ‘Shaitan’ and ‘Shor in the City’.

"I think Sudhir should be the one accepting this. I'm quite honored and amused to accept this award. It is good to see this movie getting some recognition. And you guys obviously have a great choice," said an ecstatic Arunoday Singh, on receiving the award for ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’.
