Roberts, Nickelback top Juno awards

Canadian rockers nab three nods each

TORONTO — The divas got the most noms for the 33rd annual Juno Awards on Sunday, but when time came to take home the statues, it was the guys who hauled them in.

Sam Roberts took home three awards, for best artist and “We Were Born in a Flame” for best album and rock album. Rockers Nickelback took the group and the fan choice awards.

After topping the noms list with five nods, Sarah McLachlan took home two. “Afterglow” received the statue for pop album and with Pierre Marchand, McLachlan took songwriting kudos.

Nelly Furtado, who also received five nominations, took home one award, for best single, for “Powerless (Say What You Want)”, and Shania Twain took country recording for “Up!” Songstresses Celine Dion (who got four nods) and Avril Lavigne went home empty-handed.

Other winners were 50 Cent, whose “Get Rich Or Die Tryin'” took the prize for international album, Michael Buble for new artist, Billy Talent for new group, and Buck 65’s “Talkin’ Honky Blues” won alternative album.

Hosted by Alanis Morissette, this year’s Canadian music industry awards were held in Edmonton by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Artists.
