I am pretty sure all awards in India for bollywood are rigged and never goes to the deserving candidates.

Apsara wards for 2010 - Shahrukh won the best actor award for Rab ne bana di jodi.
RNBDJ released in 2008 and got awards nominations in 2009. When this was the case, how did SRK manage to win a award for this movie in 2010. Phew ! frustrating to say the least.

Stardust awards for 2010 - best actress was won by Katrina kaif for NY and APKGK.
Is this a joke? Agree katrina acted well and has improved her performance film by film. But best actress?? Konkona sen sharma for Luck by chance was not even nominated. I think she should have won an award for her brilliant performance in LBC and wake up sid.

Star screen awards i felt were a little fair. Vidya balan did manage to win the best actress award for Paa. But then Screen awards are run by the indian express group who are good friends with the bachchans. Hmmn

Coming to filmfare awards which will be held in feb which are considered like the oscars in the west.I would not be surprised if Katrina wins the best actress award here.

What do you think? WHich awards are biased in india and which are not? Are the national awards biased as well??

LMAO! Frustrated old hag? awww looks like I hit someones nerve!! So I guess I was right about you being a 13 yr old teeny bopper then? It was a lucky guess! lol

And can u read properly ?? Why r u ADDING words to what I said? I never said Fashion was a success because of Kangana (alone) and neither did I say if it wasnt for metro ppl would never come to know about gays ...

Go and re-read what I had to say if u r having such a difficulty comprehending what I was saying in the first place

First u claimed u knew what PC meant and now u r adding words to what I had to say ... Dellusional much?

And u havent provided me with one sensible argument except the same old SEX mentra that u keep ramping on about so u can go ahead keep thinking they are one dimensional actors and ill keep thinking that Kat and Ash are nothing but show pieces --

certainly not anon...there are actresses who have done offbeat films and have always experimented with roles..for example Kareena (omkara/chameli), PC (fashion/kaminey)...they have always had a growth! not like konkona or kangna!
Katrina has done Rajneeti..unless the movie comes out i cant say anything..but she was nice in NL and good in APKGK ( i know ppl will now bash me for mentioning this film .. since it wasnt a serious art film..lol). You neednt do serious films ONLY to prove you mettle..Rani/Kajol/Madhuri never had to do any and are strong pillars of indian cinema

i agree abt them getting typecasted. they need to venture out and do something different...konkona was very avg in wups...kangana is really getting monotonous...i agree. but saying that ppl say they r good actors just because they do art movies/durg addict roles or whatever is wrong. ash has been good in commercial movies- hddcs, devdas, guru. there is no hypocrisy. it's just that fans of bad actors trying to justify bad acting by saying arty actors are considered good just because they do arty films! i hv seen bad art films too with bad acting!

if kangna is regarded as a good actress i think ill never again call waheda rehman/madhuri or sridevi good actresses..that would be such an insult!

Wait wait katrina she never won satrdust best actress award r u ppl blind or dun knw how to read. Itz preity zinta who won stardust best actress award for videsh movie and as far katrina'a concern she won best popluar actress award of the year.
I notice one thing ppl are so racism they can never change.

nobody is hating on ash. come on ash fans chill out. you are saying konkona and kangana cannot act so we are just saying they can act. u r accusing them that they only do "certain" types of roles and hence r considered better actors than ash/kat. well if ash/kat can play the roles they play well nobody would say anything. unfortunately they don't! ash is still better. kat is a non actor! at least konkona and kangana do well in whatever roles they r playing! why does it matter what kind of roles they are playing? it's all acting at the end of the day! nobody is saying ash/kat can't act because they do commercial cinema....it's not like if tomorrow kat does an art film everyone will suddenly think she is a great actress!

i agree abt kangana ranaut..she has only played all similar characters till now..no variety at all..all she kept saying in fashion was "u basterd..u basterd..i will kill u"..nd dats wat she does in her other movies too...but konkona sen is a good actress..remember mr.nd mrs.iyer..i loved her there..but in her last few hindi movies like luck by chance nd wake up sid..nd a few others..she has been in a similar mould nd is gettin typecast!!

Anonymous's picture

why care anon..the more ppl hate on ASH the better she gets! hasn't she proved it time and again?

Anonymous's picture

do you know her personally?? DUH!
So u mean to say Fashion was a success coz of Kangana?? ohh i see..wonder what happens to her other films.
GETTING ALL PERSONAL coz i abused the critics?? oh yes i will any day take ash/kat over these no brainers..you can jolly well get an orgasm watching you fav pornstars and revel in the no of stars they get for their holy act.
hahahaahahahahaha..yeah like if a metro wasnt made ppl would never come to know abt GAYS!!(especially when not many watch them) hahahahahahahahahaa..what an enlightened being you are.

I do have a VALID reason..Konkona/Kangana are one dimensional characters..yeah a lot of pseudo intellectuals like you will always take up their case to define REAL CINEMA..lol!(i guess cinema is all abt playing freaks). they are bad actors (konkona not always, kangana YES always). And yes i am glad to be a silly teenager..heck its much better than being a frustrated OLD HAG LIKE you

true...vidya got the award cos it was a bachan movie. remember her in bhool bhulaiya, she was superb and she wasn't even nominated. The awards are just purely entertainment, what with the indecent dancing. The singers don't even get a chance to sing at the awards!!!

the screen awards dat took place this year were quite fair in my book..lets see wat happens at d filmfare..they r quite srk friendly(jitesh pillaai- d editor of filmfare is a complete srk sucker)..but lets see..but really does anyone care who wins d award??!! its just abt entertainment boss!!

Y r u laughing at ur own jokes

unthinkable's picture

PC was being polite?
Oh I guess u must know her personally to have come up to your own conclusion of what she actually MEANT! .... Kangana played a KEY role in the movie and if she was so "pathetic" as you claimed -- Fashion wouldnt have been as big of a success as if was or has been considering it was a female oriented movie ... So dont get your opinions mixed with the majority opinion of how good she acted! U dont like her for whatever personal opinions fine but when she acted good u can atleast admit that she did or does that hurt your pride? lol

And O yea you can end the discussion on "critics" if u like cuz u sound like a 13 yr old teeny booper to me who probably doesnt pay attention to things such as that when u r glued to your tv watching a entertainment movie of Kat or Ash

"Being stuck with gays, or playing a nymphomaniac doesnt help the case of AIDS much..lol!"

--- Um actually it does honey because their are more under the closet gay people in India then out the closet because of the flash they recieve so if u r refering to her role in "metro" then there are people like that in real life who pretend to be straight but are actually with a guy because they r too scared to come out and face the backflash but like i said u sound way too young to me to comprehend stuff like that does happen often And konkana has never been vulgar and cheap unless there is something of hers that I havent seen!! So if you must hate on any of these ladies atleast provide a valid reason

Really Brilliant Post! Biasness/corruption/nepotism is present in every field and bollywood is no exception. Nowadays these things have become a "tamasha". Everything is done to increase ratings ..even the ashutosh outburst at starscreen last year was staged (My opinion). To make everyone happy the "Social issues of the society" films get the critics award while the box office kings and queens get the popular awards. And that is a fact.

ofcourse i have watched PORN..everyone does..if you havent u r not NORMAL..lol.
what i want to prove is that ACTORS like AB/AamirKhan/Rekha/DilipKumar never had to do silly stupid drug addict roles to prove that they can frigging act! something the konkonas and kanganas of the world can NEVER DO! they will keep doing these kinda regressive stuff to convince ppl they can act..LOL!!

Rani should have won some awards for DBH. In terms of acting she wipes the floor clean with all those others. You can't say it's because DBH wasn't a hit because PC has been nominated for that crap WYR and Kaminey at several of the awards so far. WYR was a mega disaster compared with DBH. Kaminey was really Shahid's film and PC character was so well defined that even Katrina would have looked good.
Does a comedy make Rani's acting in it any less outstanding. No is my answer.
As for Vidya. Had it not been because AB senior and AB junior were in the film and that the film BEGGED to be noticed, she would never have been considered for any of the awards. Her winning some makes AB senior's winning more justified - like it was some great film - NOT.

arent you all bored of this silly topic?
if my fav doesn't win an award i'll call it rigged and if he does i won't
SIMPLE!

Anonymous's picture

Stardust and filmfare awards are usually given 50% public votin and 50 % judges....Maybe the public voted for katrina as many liked her in those two films...adding to that there might have been atleast 20 % chance from judges..so adding both maybe she won

again what is REAL CINEMA unthinkable? if according to you it MUST deal with sex related themes then i'll happily play the ignorant fool!

Actually they do say their films are different! All stars do! How you gonna talk about hypocrisy and then do the same yourself cuz you like ash/kat more! Haha and u must have seen porn urself to know what its like ... get ur facts straight .. for kids like u who havent even been held once it might look like porn but u r the biggest hypocrite here

Anonymous's picture

agreed with unthinkable. kangana may play a drug addict all the time (she is getting typecasted!) but she plays them well...she makes you feel for her character. she does it well. i don't think commercial cinema and art cinema as real or fake....the point is whatever you are playing- be it in commercial or art as an actor the job is to make me feel for the character. if u can't do that u r not a good actor. u can be pretty sexy entertaining make lots of money and be popular with sex starved teenagers/young boys...but that does not make u a good actor.

Anonymous's picture

LOL..PC was being polite.
Coming to Katrina...i can surely say she is a non-actor..and i wasnt claiming her to be one either. she is atleast non-pretentious!
What critics are you talking abt? hahahahaahhahahaha..end of discussion here on them i guess. People who think SR was an epic and TZ/CDI werent?? LOL.
Kangna was pathetic in Fashion..thats how i look at it..and to hell with critics..she couldn't even deliver her dialogues properly. Her constant shreiking and shouting were major put offs!
WHOOOAAAA..i am not asking you NOT to talk abt sex..but if you agenda is to EDUCATE the masses through your films abt sex then do it effectively. Being stuck with gays, or playing a nymphomaniac doesnt help the case of AIDS much..lol! try and seperate things. NONE of konkona's films have been for the masses because they werent meant to be..it almost always shows an individual with sexual perversions.and to my knowledge i dont think thats speaking up for SEX! we can educate the masses without getting vulgar and cheap.

Submitted by Anonymous on Tue, 2010-01-26 23:32. NOTHING wrong in sex..whats wrong is the hypocrisy! ASH/KAT dont go around saying OMG MY FILM IS SO DIFFERENT..ITS AN ART FILM..duh!
konkona can speak so can Asihwarya..its really time we started giving her credit..one guru/provoked is a million times better than a thousand of konkona's porn presented as art!

That is not the ONLY basis on which anyone including me came up with the conclusion that these awards are fake/ screwed / or biased ... Why dont u read everything and not knit pick what u want to read? and if we were to list every yr and every little detail of how these awards are biased it will take up plently of space and too much time for both of us and neither mine or urs or anybody elses opinion will change !!

And Anon, if Konkona stares wide eyed at the camera according to you I would love to know what you think Katrina does in front of the Camera .... If u can pin point one scene of hers that convinces u of her getting into any character she plays I would love to see it ... Her acting makes my eyes cringe lol And Kangana did a better job in Fashion than Priyanka .... even PC said that she wouldnt have gotten as much acclaim if Kanganas character wasnt as effective as it was! PC is my favorite main stream actress out of the lot but she didnt do as good of a job as kangana did in that movie and I can admit that... If she plays a "freakin" addict in all her movies atleast she plays em well -- you can check the critics if u must -- they know their job better than me! -- And movies dealing with Sex? Try reality shows such as splitsvilla/ Kiran Bedi Kasheri / Sach Ka Samna !! Indian mentality is to push everything under the rug! Just cuz we dont talk about sex doesnt mean it doesnt happen! Look at the no of orphans in our country and the AIDS victims you'll know what im talking about so if kangana does do such films its cuz its coming from real life and only spreading awareness But ofcourse if you could get your premature brain out of the "pure entertainment aka kat/ash" sense u could learn to appreciate REAL cinema and not the fake ones living it up at ur expense

awards are rigged...all awards...no credibility. AT ALL. vidya balan getting the screen award is of course deserving but it has more to do with the fact that she was in a bachchan movie. if this movie was produced by someone else i bet she would not have gotten it.

Anonymous's picture

and what's wrong with sex? how is kat/ash pure entertainment with showing off their legs, jutting their breasts, wearing short skirts, getting wet in the rain? how is that NOT sex and not perversion? please explain to me. i don't disagree that all these art films only go for dark themes and deal with sex...some r very pretentious...but that does not mean ash/kat r any better. but at least konkona can say her dialogue properly and make me feel for her character- sex or no sex.

unthinkable are you from some other planet?? awards boycott aamir?? he is duly nominated and awarded everywhere..its a different thing that sir chooses to sulk and is more willing to be part of hollywood awards.loser

LOL..whats your definition of real acting Mam?? staring wide eyed at the camera (like konkona does) or playing a freak/drug addict in all movies (like kangana does)!! JUST BECAUSE you do the so called art films (technical pron in a sense as they invariably deal with sexual encounters of one form or the other) doesnt make you a great actress. For example Konkona..take up her filmography..MOSTLY she has been part of movies dealing with SEX in form or the other...im glad ppl shun such perversions and go for pure entertainment ala kat/ash!!

OKHAY..let's believe that the awards are all screwed and biased. Ihe only thing i dont get is why MUST we decide it on the fact that AAMIR KHAN doesnt attend these award ceremonies? WHAT DOES THAT PROVE? EVEN AJAY DEVGAN DOESNT ATTEND these award ceremonies and he has more national awards than Aamir does.DUH.For that matter even a nasseruddin shah doesnt attend these ceremonies. its a matter of choice. they DONT SULK LIKE AAMIR does..YOU CANT BE SELECTIVE! just because filmfare doesnt honour you doesnt mean it is bullshit and just because some other award does..doesnt mean it's prestigious! Anything can happen these days..IF LEGENDS like REKHA can get a padma shri at this stage what more can we ask. Even if we compare the two rekha is a far far far far better actor than aamir.but then again lets see who he is sharing the award with...sant singh chatwal..LOL..MONEY SPEAKS..it does! and sadly its the case everywhere..even the OSCARS and the so called prestigious film festivals!! how else can you justify Aishwarya Rai being on the Cannes jury! beyond me

unthinkable's picture

it would be wonderful if we could smitag but sadly the market itself will tells u what sells and what doesnt...all the ppl i mentioned in the end wont sell movies as successfully as katrina or srk or ash will ... because we as a society dont care about acting (real acting) as much as we do about a pretty face and glamour and maybe somewhat decent acting lol (excluding kat cuz i dont think she can act to save her life -- havent seen NY tho so i cant comment on that movie!)

sad thing unthinkable i am curious to know if we can complain abt it somewhere..today internet is quite powerful u know , its not just me and you everyone i have heard were angered at katrina winning rajeev gandhi award. if we can do somethign abt it that would be great.

Honestly I think alll awards are biased nowadays! I only watch them now to see who is wearing what and who came with who, the dances, and if any drama happened in the midst of all that.. What path breaking role did srk play in Rab ne? He slicked his hair with oil and wore a mustache as suri and not one as the other character? The ran ne yr was NOT his yr! Why cant it be like that?! Also Aamir because he never vists these award function always in a sense I feel like gets boycot!! If he was the type to attend these functions -- think about it -- how many more awards he would have in his kitty! .. These days we have just GLAMORIZED evrything! Be it ACTING credibility ( Or lackof), Our award functions, or lack of powerful scripts.. Katrina getting Rajiv Gandhi award for Best actress category last yr and Aishwarya or Saif winning the Padma -- These awards, these so called "prestigious" awards should be just that!! I have nothing against any of them but the judges who come up with the selection of actors to get these awards and last yr aish got actress of the decade (Made up stupid category cuz iffa was completing its 10 yrs) instead of best actress for JA .. Since Amitabh is the grand ambassador of iffa and their bahu would have gone home without an award i felt like this made up category was more of a freebee !!
Shatrugan Sinha in a interview said it himself that he thinks they are pre planned and some stars even take money to get an award (The small budgeted award shows since it publisizes them) so yeah... Biased Biased Biased!
Kangana // Konkana // Nashrudeen // Kay Kay Menon Most deserving of the lot but beauty over talent ... so sick of seeing that ... if its not one category then its another

I strongly think the IIFA Awards are biased and always go to actors who are on 'good terms with A.Bachan - as he is part owner of the award show. Hence, Filmfare i think is the best judging award ceremony in India - just look at the judging panel, they're all from the film fernity and there not biased.
Stardust gives awards as they please - Star Screen is ok but nothing tops 'Filmfare' - Hope Kareena wins Best Actress for Kurbaan - she seriously deserves it.
