Vancouver crooner Michael Bublé cleaned up at last night's (April 2) 35th Juno Awards, held at the Halifax Metro Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Bublé, the 2004 Juno Award winner for top new artist, converted four of his five nominations into awards.

On the night, the 143/Reprise singer was named top artist, and he took home the top album and single trophies for "It's Time" and "Home," respectively.

"I desperately wanted to win," Bublé confessed to the audience while accepting his first award for top artist.

A night earlier, Bublé was awarded top pop album for "It's Time" at the Juno Gala held at Halifax's World Trade and Convention Centre in which 32 of the 39 Junos were handed out.

Bublé told Billboard.biz that winning for top pop album was the most meaningful for him. "That the one I really wanted to win for," he said.

A frontrunner in Juno nominations this year, Bublé also told Billboard.biz that "I didn't come here to lose. I came here to win."

The only category Bublé was nominated for but didn't win was the fan-voted Juno Fan Choice Award, which was claimed by Montreal rockers Simple Plan.

Nickelback, who had led the pack with six nominations, won just two Junos. The rock act took out top group and top rock album for "All The Right Reasons," which is released locally on EMI.

Other double winners included Neil Young, who took home honors for top producer and top adult alternative album for "Prairie Wind" (Reprise). The Tragically Hip received honors for best music DVD of the year for their Universal release "Hipeponymous." The group's career retrospective project also won best artwork design.

Despite mainstream artists dominating this year's event, Canada's budding alternative scene also received its due. Five of the seven Arcade Fire members took home top songwriter honors for the compositions "Wake Up," "Rebellion (Lies)" and "Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)" from the Merge Records album "Funeral."

In other categories, Kingston reggae-punk group Bedouin Soundclash won for top new group and Toronto collective Broken Social Scene's self-titled CD on Arts & Crafts was named top alternative album.

The show, hosted by Canadian-born actress Pam Anderson, was televised in Canada by CTV. A packaged version has been offered to 11 MTV and VH1 networks internationally.

During her opening remarks, Anderson made clear her stance against the controversial annual seal hunt on Canada's east coast.

"I don't even mind a little blood on the ice when it's a hockey rink, but I hate seeing blood on the ice from baby seals." Many in the crowd booed her comments.
