The season of awards is started. First is, as always SCREEN. Though I was in doubt about their nominations itself, which were not up to the mark, Awards are also kind of mix bag. Here are the results.
Best Film : Jodha-Akbar
Best Actor : Hrithik Roshan [Jodha-Akbar]
Best Actress: Priyanka Chopra [Fashion]
Best Director : Ashutosh Gowarikar [Jodha Akbar] & Neeraj Pandey [A Wednesday]
Nokia Popular Viewers' Choice Award : [??!!!!]
Akshay Kumar [Singh is Kinng] & Aishwarya Rai [Jodha Akbar]
Here, an issue errupted. Akshay Kumar, left the viewers and organisers in disbelief by dedicating the award to Aamir Khan for his performance in 'Ghajini'. When called upon the stage, Akshay, said he watched 'Ghajini' and felt that Aamir deserved this honour and left the stage without collecting the trophy dedicating it to Aamir.
Best Supporting Actor [Male] : Tusshar Kapoor [Golmaal Returns]
Best Supporting Actor [Female] : Shahana Goswami [Rock On!]
Best Debut [Male] : Farhan Akhtar [Rock On !]
Best Debut [Female] : Asin [Ghajini]
Best Music: A R Rahman [Jodha-Akbar]
Best Story : Neeraj Pandey [A Wednesday]
While three of my favorite films Jaane tu..., Ghajini and Rock On; are far from sight in this list, I am quite dissappointed. But on the other side, who cares for the awards ? Are they genuine, anyways??
