Priyanka deserved the best actress nomination fro bajirao mastani yet she got the Best supporting nomination just bcoz of the Old saying Quantity over quality proverb..well what about her billiant performance in Dil dhadakne do as AYESHA thats not right n just bcoz the films failed at the boxoffice performances like kangana n vidya werent appreciated at all in katti batti n hamari adhuri kahani

Well Deserved winners should be Ranveer singh as Best actor or Kangana as Best actress Best Director SLB then Best film Bajrangi bhaijaan best MUsic SLB n Best supporting actress Priyanka chopra n best supporting actor Nawazudin n Best choreography Remo for Pinga n Best Actress critics should be Priyanka chopra or Kalki koechlin n Best actor Nawazudin for MANjhi or irfan for Talwar.....Best child artist Harshali malhotra....Best Dialogue Prakash for Bajirao mastani...Best costume designer Anju modi for Bajirao mastani

Jazbaa was awful... its once again confirmed Aish will never be an actress...good choice filmfare .

Yesssss ... SRK and kajol were nominated for screen Awards too .. their acting was great even in a masala movie . but some actors can't act even in a niche movie ...Lol

SRK-Kajol rocks

Where Irrfan in Piku ..... And SRK nominated for dilwale..... They might as well release his name before the start of next year as well for a nomination..... Horrible performance to say the least..... So disappointed at the nominations..... And how about sonam kapoor in Dooly ki Dulhan...... Worst of them all......... Not anticipating good results from this filmfare......

Sonam for Dolly ki Doli?? WTAF?? they might as well have included Ash for Jazbaa. Equally crap acting.

deepika for BM ???? LOL ...undeserved !!!

SRK and Kajol nominated? LOL may as well have also nominated ranbir and anushka for BV then also ROTFL

Why nominate Deepika twice? She wasn't bad as Mastani but there were many other deserving candidates. Also, doesn't it divide her fan votes between the two and reduce her chance of winning?

Kalki beti will win Best Actress - Critics. MARK MY WORDS... They can nominate whoever they want in the Popular category. Out of those 6 mentions, only 3 are deserving. I will leave it at that.... It's Tuesday and I'm fasting.

Y is Shahrukh nominated for Dilwale. His performance was horrible to say the least. Akshay for baby, n Devgan for dhrishyam were far far better. At least the nominations should b credible if not the final award.

Best film: Piku
Best actor: Ranveer for Bajirao
Best actress: Deepika for Piku
Bestsupporting actress: Priyanks for Bajirao
Best supporting actor: Sanjay Mishra fro Masaan

#1 Post.

No Ajay?? Drishyam was a such superb movie and Ajay's performance was excellent Anyway, hopefully Ajay will get his 3rd National Award!

I'm not going to hate on Sonam getting nominated, she was good in DKD. It's funny that people are complaining about that nom on the basis of BO, which doesn't even matter for award nominations. Though nothing seems to matter for award nominations since they have no problem skipping films like Masan, Talwar, etc. Filmfare has been around a long time, but it's still just a film magazine, I wonder is there any award in Indian movies that isn't ridiculous? National Awards maybe?

Dolly ki actress nomination for sonam?? This is the best joke since slice and bread !

Lol if kajool took filmfare lead award than what will be left for dp to achieve?!! At least prianka gets award in supporting rule category and there is big chances for prianka to get second national award along with kangana ranavat , only stardust and big star left for her to achieve and her fans make hype of her stardust and big star award lol.

kajol best actress for dilwale!!! are you frigging kidding me....can they buy their way to filmfares as well. oh god

why is sharukh even on the best actor list...i mean it is embarrassing. he looks out of place compared to Amitabh, Ranveer, Varun and even salman!!!

You certainly forgot to specifically recall Akshay and Ajay) Why do you remind me of the various functions of awards. LOL

Plz release the full nomination list

Even stardust award nomination n winners were fabulous this time

Hope what im thinking out of these few nominations wins atleast then i shall be quite happy

They gave Dil dhadAkne do music a nomination yet forget to nominate the Best actor n actress RANVEER SINGH N PRIYANKA CHOPRA HOW UNFAIR?

Hope the critics choice are better than the popular choices nominees i feel they shall excel more

Where is shreya n the other singer name for Pinga song nomination?also kanika for chitiyaan kalaiyaan my 2 favourites

Nawaz Akshay n ajay in Manjhi Baby Drishyam should be nominated in Best actor category instead of SRK this year n same with female choices as Priyanka n kalki for Dil dhadakne do n margarita instead of kajol sonam n even deepika in BM was less in terms of her piku n tamasha

Yes Priyanka and Kalki deserved nominations for their role in DDD and MWS.

Kalki, I cry for you. Ikaun of India took your spot. =(

Hope she gets nominated for critics choice atleast


Some nominatios are very good while some r baseless i dont know why yet hope the critics choice r better nominees

Horrible.! Sonam for some disaster movie is hilarious!!!! And Dilwale flopped, why are srk/kajol nominated for their awful acting??? Deepika was totally flat in bm, should have nom for tmasha instead. Most of the list SUCKS!!

Kajol is winning best actress (she has major FILMFARE society dibs) but we all know it should be Deepika for PIKU. I'm surprised Katrina didn't get a nomination for PHANTOM, she was actually decent in that...and might as well forget about getting one next year for FITOOR if they didn't even notice her in PHANTOM. Priyanka is winning best supporting actress, I am so happy for her because she is bagging the same awards in Bollywood that Kate Winslet is bagging this year in Hollywood. I am so proud of them. SRK is nominated for DIWALE? Sonam for DOLLY? Wow! I am just speechless. =/

Oh my disappointed with this! Dilwale actually nominated? I can't believe it. And once again himesh is ignored for prdp..and songs which are autotuned and copied get nominations instead of real music?Anushaka nominated for a 5 min role that had no impact..and sonam suddenly nominated out of nowhere lol ... was really hoping film fare would at least try to improve and be different from the other awards..don't think I'll bother watching this year

SRK is hosting the show. It all makes sense now.

Like someone else already pointed out, these are popular choice categories hence we have SRK and Kajol who if not, has no business being there. SRK himself would be embarrassed to find him there instead of Irrfan in Talvar. He had said so when we won some BS award for Happy New Year Lets not hate on someone for no reason, shall we?

These awards are always going to be about popular choices only mostly. Unfortunately.

If Priyanka wins her award she'd be the first person to win 5 awards in 5 different categories!

Best Debut - Andaaz
Best Villain - Aitraaz
Best Actress - Fashion
Best Actress Critics' - 7 Khoon Maaf
Best Supporting Actress - Bajirao Mastani (TBA)

She'd won every acting category possible! That's why Priyanka is the most versatile actress in Bollywood! Hope she wins.

Hi Shaku! Me knowing it is you #IamWatching

Uncle, it was me. I wrote that post... just forgot to login! Not every PC fan is Shakuntela... why give her all the credit?

Hahaha who are u uncle? And how is aunty? And no Uncle Ji, that's not me :)

Suggestion for Filmfare: Might as well give Katrina Kaif the Best Actress award for Phantom. That'll complete the joke.

She might just have been better than Sonam in DKD

KAJOL was good in Dilwale, though the movie itself was bad! I don't think she deserves to win the award...but nominated for sure.

Varun, Badlapur critics award?

A joke nomination list - Indian awards are actually embarrassing!

ALL awards in India are a sham. Stars demand that they win an award if the organisers want them to attend the show.

Not all awards some maybe

Shahrukh, Kajol, sonam, and Anushka(ddd), Deepika for BM don't deserve the nominations. Kalki for margarita with straw should've been there. There were many great performances that were ignored. I used to think filmfare were equivalent to oscars, but I guess not.

Really??? Shahrukh and Kajol for Dilwale? Isn't filmfare equivalent to oscars?

Kajol and shah rukh are nominated???? Why?? They were so bad in a horrible film. Pathetic. Where's salman's nomination??

Dolly ki dolly???? Who watched that movie????

Can people stop talking about SRK and Kajol being nominated? You do realize that there was online voting for these awards which they take into consideration for the nominations. Nobody can beat them in popularity, so stop acting like a big surprise. Also, even Hollywood awards have their snubs/surprising winners or nominees, so just give it a rest with the rants on here.

Aww you get offended srk and kajool fan , here filmfare is giving award to poupler deserveing performances of the year not a conurbation of poupler and successfull actor and actress (srk snd kajool ) as there pouplerity didn't manage to make film success , the film didn't get success, neither boxoffice success nor critical aclaim, so what's your point of their pouplerity.

Sonam for DKD and SRK for Dilwale has to be a Joke

Kajol actres much better in a masala movie that these so called performances. Kajol was so natural in Dilwale, which Priyanka , Deepika can only dream about.Kajol makes even the worst roles something special.
Was Kashibai supposed to walk like that? what great performance ? it is great Filmfare showed the worth of this so called great performance Overrated star and her stalker fans. her award was so prestigious at the PCA that she was given at backstage. She was not at Golden Globe main awards which Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling attended.

Come on kajool fan give deo where deserves and kajool was grest actress in her time now with doing masala crap movie like dilwale on purpose of getting boxoffice numbers you can't count her perfomance greatest than prianka in bajiro mastani or deepika in piku or richa chada in massan or kalki or tabu which is the same age of kajool as for acting tabu is getting appercations from every one and here deserves to br in nomanation instead of kajool and just coz of kajool have numerous filmfare for her overacting than she is more natural actress than prianka!!!! your talking about prianka whose national award winning actress she is the most natural actress that's reason she is getting appercations and awards in hollywood also (people's choice award for Quantico ) while kajool after working for deacds don't have at least one national award forget about having appercation for her acting in hollywood and no one can't reach to prianka's acting achievements when it comes to acting as she is natural perfomer if she wasn't she didn't get an opportunity to play lead rule in hollywood projects , here ppl are crticsing kajool's average performance got nomations which is completely fare and that's doesn't make sense you question the most great performances of the year to defend your fav. #Hypocricy

Says a Kajol fan. Okay.

Shah Rukh

I dont know about any other awards but the best Music would definitely go to Roy..Why??? Because T- Series...They always blackmail the organizers for this award so they can play songs in the function.. Remember Yo Yo Honey Sing getting award for Yariaan...That was a disaster...

Where are Richa,konkana n kalki.? Can't believe sonam is there for dolly ki doli..radhika n nawaz shud hv been there for manjhi n irfaan too.The real actors who should get d recognition hv been ignored n d popular ones hv been nominated..!!

Can't believe they did not include Richa and Kalk! very dissappointed :/

Deepika acted better in Tamasha than BM. In BM she just looked beautiful but the acting was very wooden/flat.

Best actors in leading role - Irfan and Kangna.

Best actors in supporting role - Deepak Dobriyal and Tabu or Konkana Sen Gupta.

Okay, I'm still processing this joke of a nomination list. Jiteesh Pillai is stupid AF. At least be a little discreet instead of being so out-rightly biased? I'm happy that Shefali Shah - Dil Dhadakne Do and Tabu - Drishyam got nominated, they were ignored in many lists earlier. But Anushka Sharma for DDD was undeserving for supporting role. Richa, Konkona or Kalki should have been there instead of Deepika for Bajirao and Sonam for DKD (seriously WTF?). HOW CAN YOU IGNORE IRRFAN KHAN IN TALVAR????He should've been there instead of SRK for Dilwale. Jesus Christ. Palak Mucchal - Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo (Prem Ratan Dhan Payo) is another disappointment. Neeti Mohan gave EXCELLENT vocals for Bombay Velvet. You have to be deaf to not appreciate that! ALL Dilwale nominations seriously compromise the seriousness of Filmfare.

Ranveer-BigB best actor tie
Deepika for Piku
Best actor : SLB
Best music: SLB
Best film: Bajiao
Best Playback: Shreya Ghoshal
Best supporting actor: Anil Kapoor
Best supporting actress: Shefali

Hope all the actors how up this time.

Great list Yay Kajol hope she attends

Add ons:

Konkona in Talvar >>>>> Kajol in Dilwale. & who can forget Tabu?

So the leading actresses should have been Tabu + Kangana + Konkona + Richa + Kalki Koechlin. We could shoe in Priyanka Chopra in DDD. She is getting overlooked for that role, she was GREAT as Aisha. Anushka was also revelation in NH10.

& Kalki should be the clear winner: Performance of the Decade.

For the men, from the top of my head:

Irfan Khan in Piku & Talvar >>> SRK in Dilwale hands down.

Only Big B beats Irfan as leading actor this year. List should have had Dhanush as well

What a difference politics make in Cinema. We got to get the ratings so the commercial actors get more play than others. Everywhere on the globe, not just in India.

Atleast you admit indirectly Sonam didnt deserve a nomination for DKD

Sonam is close to Jitesh pillai and SRK and Kajol are his favourite. So no surprises here. Come on guys why are you surprised now?? Filmfare has always been a biased award and SRK has always won it against better performers.. Do you guys think he deserved an award for DDLJ when we had Amir in Rangeela? He has won it for mediocre movies like DTPH,KHNH etc..Not the first time. Chill.. PV please post

Yes he did deserve an award for DDLJ. His performance has been appreciated worldwide for 20+ years and Aamir Rangeela was a good performance for sure but didn't have the same impact at all. Just because Aamir didn't win, he stops coming to the award shows? Doesn't sound like a great and respectable thing to sounds just like a sore loser with no sportsmanship

Ajay ,Akshay and Nawazuddin did good iin Drishyam ,Baby and Manji resp.
Tabu was more that supporting in Drishyam ,she had meatier role than Sonam and Kajol in there movies.
Kalki and Richa hand down should have been nominated for MWS and Masan

okay I'm with you on the performance part, but tabu didn't have a meatier role than sonam (not even a fan of her). she was the main character of the film and was present for 99% of the film.

How can Anushka even get a nomination for DDD? She was not even there in the movie for more than 15 minutes and the acting was nothing to talk about. Moushumi Chatterjee for Piku or Radhika for Badlapur should have been nominated.
Same thing with Sonam....Bhumi should have been nominated for Best actress category.

SRK and kajol were nominated for screen Awards too ? their acting was great even in a masala movie . but some actors can't act even in a niche movie ...Lol

SRK-Kajol Rocks

check ur brain just because dilwale is a masala movie , it doesnt mean Kajol can't nominated or even received an award ...her performance was amazing in the movie .

Will Ranboo bring Kat as his date?

deepika for BM ??? undeserved.

LOL at jealous haters ...SRK-Kajol should win it too ...well desreved ...their acting was great even in a masala movie .

i fainted ... kajol cudnt act ... what srk has done special in that movie to be nominated??? there are better movies and actors.....

WHAT THE HELL? I know dilwale was not the best movie of all, but couldn't act? really?? I don't know about srk but really though. that statement about kajol, I almost choked.

They've overlooked Akshay Kumar for baby, nawazuddin for bajrangi and Richa for Masaan.

KJO is back to pulling his strings for Kajol and SRK, im sure he is hosting a segment for the awards and he took a waiver in lieu for their nominations. or he even might do it for free to get those two the awards.

yesterday I looked Jazbaa . and it was awful. its game once again confirmed it will never be an actress...good choice filmfare .

U r wrong hater atleast aishwarya was far better than kajol n sonam in thier films..i like kajol n sonam but their performances werent that great here

I wish Ranveer should win for Baji Rao. And Deepika Padukone not deserve for nominations also.

Sonam, like seriously? This nomination along with Kajol is prove that even Filmfare can't be taken seriously.

Sonam Kapoor - Dolly Ki Doli? DAFUQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQ

Remember Deepika got an award for HNY last year???????

That wasn't Filmfare. Kangana won for Queen last year. DP did not deserve an award for HNY but she played the character really well MUCH BETTER than Sonam can ever dream of. Let me quote you some credible critics:
Masand: "Deepika Padkuone enters and livens up proceedings...The bits in which Deepika’s character Mohini insists on speaking in English although she can barely string a sentence together are terrific...Deepika too strikes just the right balance between broad humor and heartfelt emotion, giving us another winning character."
Raja Sen: "It’s all about Indiawaale, and while Sonu Sood stays consistent and Deepika inevitably dazzles, it is Shah Rukh himself who appears the most out of place"

That was popular category dear , which is decided by public votes . So blame the public for loving her enough to give her an award

Well guess what honey, this is also the popular category. Filmfare had an online poll which ran for weeks where the audiences could go and vote for their favourite stars. And guess what?! Sonam won. Fair and square! PV post this.

Why no best actress nomination aishwarya for jazbaa???? But sonam and kajol got???

It's fine, she had no chance of winning anyway. I actually prefer it this way.

Srk and kajol doesn't deserve nor does deeps for Bajirao how can they forget kalki??

sonam, kajol, & deepika for BM are undeserved.

whoever nominated Sonam Kapoor for Dolly ki Doli is delusional. i havent watched Dilwale so i don't know how bad or good kajol was but sonam is a ridiculous nomination. the movie was a was not a sleeper hit or audience favourite..critics weren't amazed by her performance..there's no logical evidence for this nomination..whatever...filmfare awards have been for sale since back in the day.

Richa Chaddha (Masaan - female lead), Kalki Koechlin (Margarita with a straw - lead) and Nawazzudin Siddique (Manjhi the mountain man - lead) were robbed. I understand if kalki doesnt get it because Margarita has english in it but it was considered a hindi film at TIFF and even took home an award! even revathy's performance was worthy of a nomination at least

Dilwale nominations shouldn't be anywhere in this list. C'mon man, what a joke. No wonder why Aamir doesn't attend these ceremonies.

SRK for Dilwale? Are you kidding me lol????? I feel like they just needed to fill the space with that one.

OMG where is Kalki???

total snubbed.priyanka chopra for dil dhadakne do/kalki/richa/irfan talvar/konkona talvar.even vidya for hamari adhuri kahani is much better nominees than sonam and kajol!

bets actress Sonam seriusly?????????????

Best Actor In Leading Role Female? Kajol for Dilwale and Sonam nominated? JOKE! SRK for Dilwale? JOKE! Yet Priyanka as predicted has been given the supporting category! Honesty absolutely shocked. Kashibai is miles ahead compared to Kajol in Dilawale and Sonam in Dolly Ki Doli. DOLLY KI DOLI? WOW! Absolute mess. Don't get me wrong, but Jitesh has snubbed Priyanka of an award in the past also with Barfi and to a certain extend Mary Kom. Jitesh Pilai the editor of Filmfare has blocked me on Twitter. God knows why because I never interacted with him nor have I ever sent him a tweet in my life. Must be reading Pinkvilla. I'm happy Priyanka is nominated for Bajirao, she was very good! I feel in Bajirao, especially the second half Priyanka took the cake. She was better than Deepika in the movie for sure. She had ample screen space and it was more of a co-lead situation for me. I agree no Dil Dhadakne Do for Priyanka. That was honestly one of the most nuanced performances of the year. Not even a nomination. That's really a bummer. That was a very good role and she excelled in her part. It was a story that was very close to many daughters in patriarchal Indian families while the glamour of the role was fun to look at. One of the best performances alongside Piku for me. This snub doesn't hurt as much since Priyanka is doing well and got recognition internationally, but I feel sorry for Kalki, Richa and Bhumi (who was terrific despite debut role!) who will be always placed in the critics category and not on the main Best actress category. Jitesh dissapoints here and clearly chooses with his heart since Kajol and Sonam are his besties. It's unfortunate that this is supposedly India's answer to the Oscars.

Nominations are strange, this is the reason all the awards have lost their credibility.

Don't worry she is getting awards in America

Shakuntela, the nominations are indeed very odd, but I wonder whether they needed to be based on how the public voting went - which might explain the SRK/Kajol inclusion, which is in fact quite inexplicable!

He blocked me too!!! And all I said was stop being so cozy with Sonam! I know right? DOLLY KI DOLI??? what a joke.

Pyaari Shakuntela, PC will win her Black Lady for the supporting category. So All is not lost! There is always a next time. Be ready to cheer her 5th FF.

Deepika should have been nominated for tamasha !

best movie deserves to win BB Salman Khan, Nawaz for Badlapur and BB best actor.

Any award nomination where dp is nominated twice when there were more better performance than hers is a plss

Ye kya tamasha hai??? Sab ko nominate kar diya!!

Just because Tamasha was not a big bit and Deepika had less screen space no award will nominate her. That scene where she begs for love and says sorry to Ranbir before agar tum saath ho song is the best acting I have ever seen by any actress in the history of Indian cinema.This one scene >>>> Piku BM. Her performance in this movie will be left underrated...

Deepika beautifully played was a fragile nuanced and vulnerable character. It was a beautiful performance. However in Piku she was effortlessly good and natural and that's where she striks the chord.

On a serious note, she was rubbish in Mastani - everyone agreed barring worshippers of Deepika mata - stop insulting yourself!

I am agreeing with you 110%

That's a great screen name!

Deepika was AMAZING as Mastani. Love love loved her character. Filmfare will give her for that mark my words.

prem ratan dhan payo, where is it? it had fantastic songs!!!

Deepika deserved a nomination for Tamasha. But they had to make space for their favs - Kajol and sonam.

I will cry if Salman doesn't win best actor. Let's be honest, even for those who cannot stand the man at times, you have to admit no one walked out of Bhajrangi Bhaijaan with a dry eye. Everyone's performance was way too endearing. And really Filmfare? You're going to nominate Deepika twice in the same category?? What about Richa and Kalki? Why are they being ignored?? Take a lesson or two from Hollywood nominates contenders.

Among those on the list, Ranveer deserves the best actor, fair and square. If Irrfan Khan had been there, it would have been a different story, but this is the supposedly mainstream category. Only die hard fans of other actors and people who are jealous of him will say otherwise.

Travesty that Dilwale and some flop film like DKD that most havent even heard of is getting nomination

Kangana was fantastic on TWMR but where is Kalki and Richa?

Hmmm. From the list Kangana!!

Wow, even someone who hates Priyanka Chopra's guts has got to admit that she deserved a Leading Actor award for DDD and Bajirao Mastani. Also, Deepika deserves an award for Tamasha. I think that would have been a better choice for her than Bajirao Mastani because Tamasha was the most heart-wrenching performance I've seen her do.. it even trumps Cocktail (and Cocktail was damn good).

But of course, had they nominated DP for Tamasha, Superduperstar Ranbir Kapoor's ego would have been shattered for not being nominated as best male actor. On top of that, if he was nominated, and say DP won her nomination but he didn't win his (because lets face it, he was good, but even Salman in Bajrangi Bhaijaan was a better performance than him. Much better performances than Ranbir this year from other male actors), he also would have taken offence.

Nawazzudin for Bajrangi Bhaijaan should have also been in the list. Lead actress needed PC for Bajirao (her and DP shared equal screen space in my opinion) and DDD, she got rave reviews for both. I would have preferred if DP's lead actress awards were for Tamasha and Piku, not Bajirao.. she wasn't necessarily bad in BM, she was just SO SO SO GOOD in Tamasha. SO MUCH BETTER than she was in BM. I don't know what Sonam is doing there.. no one even remembers Dolly Ki Doli happened. Kajol is one of the best actresses but in Dilwale even she was a disaster. Isn't Filmfare also the awards show that didn't give Priyanka her award for Barfi? Don't get me wrong, recently she's been annoying AF and I was cringing watching her on the PCA's but I think even if someone hates her, they have to admit that she deserves nominations as a leading actress this year for DDD and BM.

ugh as much as hate to admit. I agree that even kajol could help dilwale :( She's a great actress but damn. that script that storyline? it was a disaster.

Kangana said the only two award show she respects are Filmfare and National Award. Only Deepika for Piku can give her competition. I have watched all the movies mentioned here and Bajirao Mastani was the best. Ranveer definitely deserve the Best Actor award for that epic performance. Bit harsh to leave out his performance in DDD.

We live in an India where not only Sonam Kapoor is 1) an actress but 2) she also gets nominated as best actress for 2 years in a row. Let that just sink in folks.

this is very wrong if you ask me

Grandfather (Surinder Kapoor, producer), Father (Anil Kapoor, actor, producer), Uncle (Boney Kapoor, producer), Uncle (Sanjay Kapoor, actor (maybe), producer), Uncle (Sandeep Marwah - founder of Noida Film City and owner of Marwah Films & Video Studios. Sandeep is married to Reena Kapoor, the daughter of Surinder Kapoor).

There's more... Cousin (Arjun Kapoor), Step-aunt (Sridevi Kapoor), Ranveer Singh (cousin of Sonam, Rhea and Harshvardhan Kapoor).

At least taunt with facts, beta! It's 3 years in a row. Don't forget Ranjhana.

Oh yes! It's even worse than I imagined. Shudder!

Sonam Kappor. Best actor (female) forever and ever and ever. She has histrionics of Meena Kumari/Nutan, grace of Sadhana, beauty of Madhubala, intelligence of Shabana Azmi...she is the BEST thing that ever happened to Indian cinema. (This message paid in full and brought to you by Anil Kapoor).

I wrote this on another site but it bears repeating on this one as well:

Glad to see Dolly ki Doli nomination for Sonam Kapoor! The movie was not a hit but she did excellent in it. Nice that Filmfare does stray from nominating BO hits only.

Side eye for Bajirao Mastani as best movie. SLB certainly did not produce his best effort with that one imho. He took way too much liberties with historical accuracy to get a nomination as best director, or for BM to be nominated as best movie!

& Richa or Kalki deserved to be nominated as well. I would have picked them over Sonam & Deepika although iam happy that Sonam got rcognized for DKD.
Deepika getting two nominations & those two actresses getting none is just ridiculous. & SRk did not deserve to be on that list either!

Sonam was excellent in dkd!!!! Rofl to your dubbel standard iddioic comment.

Nice try bollyfanluver , trying to bring up Deepikas deserving nominations to hide your favs undeserved nomination. Sonam does not deserve a nomination for this flop film that nobody has seen . Clearly bought and paid for by Anil who got nominated for DDD too. Lol

SRK and Kajol nominated for WTF reasons? Maybe Filmfare will shut down if SRK is not nominated...Make some rules Filmfare Academy - dont bend them for influential people.

holy S! this is a slap to talent. No Kalki in best actress, no Nawaz in best actor for Manjhi and SRK, Kajol and Sonam nominated? Bollywood has oficially lost it

And Sonam is nominated for PRDP?Why not nominate Shraddha for ABCD2 or Katrina for Phantom while we are at it!!

Is this a joke? Filmfare's nominations never fail to amuse me (their winners are usually bearable though). WTF nominees this year: SRK (Dilwale) for Best Actor; Kajol (Dilwale) and Sonam (Dolly Ki Doli) for Best Actress; Gerua (Dilwale) and Gulaabo (Shaandaar) for Best Lyrics...AYFKM. People that should've been nominated: Irrfan Khan (Talvar) and Ajay Devgn (Drishyam) for Best Actor; Richa (Masaan), Kalki (MWAS), Priyanka (DDD), and Bhumi (DLKH) for Best Actress; Nawazuddin (Bajrangi Bhaijaan) for Best Supporting Actor; Konkona (Talvar) for Best Supporting Actress. Also, I can't believe they nominated the music of Dilwale over Dum Lagaa Ke Haisha. Plus, the song with the best lyrics in terms of literary merit isn't even among the nominees (Tu Kisi Rail Si - Masaan). And Priyanka's Bajirao Mastani nomination should've been in the lead actress category. What a mess.

Everything u comment is so on point every time lol

It's the performance that matters.People will be watching BM for years to come and enjoy it for PC's performance.Nobody is going to google who won the stupid lead actress award!!

LMAO... How true! Besides devoted fans, AAM JANTA doesn't remember or care for awards. Good performances will last a lifetime, whether they got a piece of metal or not.

Kajol to win best actress for dilwale!

im so happy Dilwale rock worldwide! srk-Kajol rule!&if in India it was single release it 4 sure would became all time blockbuster

SRK - Dilwale? Kajol and sonam? Gulabo, Shaandaar for lyrics? How lame can this get???

Priyanka got snubbed. She should be nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female) for DDD. Not saying she should def win considering her competition; however, she deserves to be nominated....especially over Sonam Kapoor. Her character in DDD was so layered, subtle and complex. Sometimes it's easier to pick up and do roles that are loud/big personalities. Honestly, I think DDD deserves more recognition than it has gotten. As for my comment about Sonam Kapoor..... I don't hate her, I have nothing against her; however, we all know that as of right now (don't know after Neerja, maybe) she does not deserve to be up there.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui for Badlapur ........ No ! He deserve it for Bajrangi Bhaijaan........! Jury sucks big time. I raise my middle finger to them. And to ppl who thumbs it down. Gets some life FUCKERSSS !!!

where is sunny leone nomination for leela???she was mindblowing...i hope u will nominate her for mastizaade next year,,,keeping my fingers crossed...

YES YES sonam should win the filmfare and national award for DKD...greatest performance ever by female actress in history of world cinema since vivien leigh in gone with the wind(1939)...she will crush every other nominee.....she is legend already......

HAHAHA She is fashion I-caun

Anil Kapoor, while a talented actor, was never the ultimate, reigning star of his generation, which leads me to wonder what he has to offer each year in order to buy a nomination and/or trophy for his daughter? Does his wife's businessman relatives offer to sponsor the show? And what will he do when his son enters the fray too? Will be have to double his offers to ensure a nomination for both? And what purpose does such a staged career serve for him other than offer his brats an ego-booster? I doubt if his brats will be remembered 15 years from now. Most people seem to have forgotten Kumar Gaurav and Chunkey Pandey (at least their acting careers).

this list is funny as hell.seriously? srk and kajol for dilwale??? really? and sonam?? what the hell is this? why are they making a joke out of other great performances this year. filmfare has completely lost it. no class at all. post it pv!

Filmfare rise above the rest: if Kangy doesn't get best actress for TWMR i will lose all faith in you

I miss Nawaz nomination for manjhi as well as Priyanka n ranveer from DDD n kalki from margarita

Where is Priyanka nomination for Dil dhadakne do as well as ranveer n also nawaz in Manjhi n bajrangi n kalki in margarita as well as irfan in piku talvar n shabana aishwarya in jazbaa n also radhika in badlapur or manjhi?

Dil dhakne do was a ensemble cast movie. There was no female lead, so despite the fact that priyanka was amazing, she can't be nominated

Priyanka n ranveer were the leads of the movie indeed watch the film then talk

Has jitesh pilai gone mad with certain nomination list he needs to release the full list now

Just release the full list nomination so that we could chill down

Mouse at play when cat is away... The case of DP's sweeping wins this season.

Wheres Pinga n Chitiyaan kaliyaan in the best singer list nomination also janam janam in best singer male list

Instead of kajol n sonam it should be Priyanka n kalki for DDD n margarita or even richa instead of deepika in bajirao

I highly agree!! Piku wasn't all that great. Deepika' performance didn't win my heart. Don't understand why she keeps saying how people all over India are calling her Piku, Piku. I was even annoyed by Amitabh Bachchan as much as I hate to say it. Irfan was tolerable but he's always done waaayyy better in all his other movies. Kalki was fantastic. Kangana was really really good in Tanu Weds Manu. And Shahrukh and Kajol??? LMFAO Terrible job Filmfare. You guys don't care about talent. Only TRP's and making money. The only legit film awards are the National Filmfare Awards. The rest of the awards are just a circus.

why dint they nominate katrina in phantom as they nominated some other categories n missed the better nominees

deepika- piku
kalki-magretta with straw
PC-Dil dhadkane do
DP-tamasha...this should have been the perfect was filmfare jury thinking while nominating kajol and sonam?

There is a reason Bollywood movies aren't taken seriously and all these undeserving people (read sonam for DKD Or kajol for dilwale and SRK for dilwale as well) are nominated instead. Movies with substance and true performances are brushed aside for more cheap or commercial movies. We make movies year after year that lack credibility and talent. After watching the golden globes and comparing the award shows we have and the kind of people we nominate, I've come to realize that all of this is actually a big joke.

wheres Shabana azmi n radhika apte best supporting nominations n best actress Priyanka n kalki in Dil dhadakne do n margarita with straw...ranveer n irfan in Dil dhadakne do n talvar

SRK & Kajol for Dilwale ? Why ? To please them? And Sonam ?

No DP for Tamasha like WTF.

No nawaqzudin for Bajrangi not for manjhi only for badlapur how come n also no radhika apte for manjhi supporting nominee n the Best actress Priyanka is nominated in supporting aish rich kalki priyanka in best actress nomination hope they get the jury nomination atleast

Deepika in Bajirao? i doubt that while in Piku she was great but not bajirao where priyanka was better than her

Srk in Dilwale n not salman in PRDP? why being unfair n also where Irfan n nawaz nomination in talvar n manjhi...Priyanka n kalki richa in Dil dhadakne do n margarita n masaan

If sonam jii can get nomination for DKD then why does she not do a good movie for a change? She would surely win.

where's Priyanka n Irfan nomination for Talvar n Dil dhadakne do also kalki in margarita n nawazudin in majhi

i expected better from filmfare...sonam kapoor and kajol are nominated for best actresses over richa chadda and kalki mindblowing performances??filmfare also becaming joke....and shahrukh nominated for dilwale???could easily have been replaced by nawazuddin in manjhi....i wonder what the jury thinks while nominating...

How come deepika is nominated for bajirao she wasnt great as compared to tamasha n piku i dont know n why isnt richa n priyanka not nominated for masaan n Dil dhadakne do n i found Priyanka Kashi a lead role not supporting role yet she shall win it hopefully she was so amazing...also kalki in margarita was so good

How come priyanka n ranveer arent nominated for their superb performances in Dil dhadakne do

Priyanka as Ayesha is so much better than sonam in dolly or kajol in dilwale n why isnt aishwarya n kalki nominated for jazbaa n margarita...i dont understand

wth? why isnt priyanka nominated for Best actress in her brilliant performance of Dil dhhadakne do n also Best actress as Kashi but she got Best supporting actress nomination

SORRY. I can't take ANY award seriously that doesn't nominate Kalki for Margarita with a Straw, Richa Chaddha for Masaan, and Irrfan for Piku/Talvar. I understand that box office rewards popularity. But shouldn't awards at least reward TALENT and PERFORMANCE and MERIT?

they need the likes of SRK to appear on the other explanation.

Maybe some brave person will take the initiative to put on a credible award show in the near future.

No Priyanka for DDD / Richa Chadda for Masaan / Kalki for Margarita with a straw, but Sonam for Dolly Ki Doli and Kajol for Dilwale? Ok.

Deepika for Piku and Ranveer for Bajirao Mastani. Sanjay Bhansali for BM and Nawazuddin for Bhajrangi Bhaijaan supporting role.

I'm in shock. I cry (((Where Akshay for baby? They could not give him an award, but it must be in a nomination! Critics highly praised the film, the audience were delighted, but the Filmfake even not nominated him. It's not fair! In addition Brothers ... film is not a hit, but the game all the actors was at the height! not even Jackie Shroff, I believe Filmfare, I think it is a serious reward, but I was wrong. but there is а SRK and it's not funny

Bad choices.y did not they nominate aishwarya for jazbaa..she did such a good job..

Bad choices...y did not they nominate aishwarya for jazbaa..she did such a good job..

ash should b nominated for jazbaa,she was fab

And these nominations prove PC is no longer on good terms with anyone in Bollywood besides Srk's contacts so she is left to be nominated in nothing more than a supporting role and is not getting appreciated for her great acting in DDD and is getting replaced by Sonam for DKD...sad really.

Besides Srk's contacts?LOL.In case you don't know,the entire bollywood is Srk's "contacts".But I see what you did there!!

Definitely felt like PC and DP were co-leads in BM... And PC should've been nominated for Best actress for BM rather than supporting role... I guess these things are pre-decided and Filmfare wants to make sure both DP and PC don't get annoyed and get a Filmfare hence why PC was nominated in a supporting role...

Best Actor in a Leading Role (Male) - Shahrukh Khan for Dilwale -------------> I stopped reading from there. Bollywood awards will never change. Maybe when more actors will boycott these jokes then people who are responsible for these awards will take it more seriously.

Proud of Kangana for showing these Bolly award the Babaji Ka Thullu. Unlike her desperate female less talented rival. We all know who. I'll be kind today, as it is Somvaar. Other notable mentions: Aamir, Salman, Ajay ... basically secure people in BW.

Everyone will sing praises of awards if they get one, Kangana is not an exception either. She says Filmfare is OK and she has won the lead actress last year. Secure person is not what I would describe her. She shouts from the rooftop she fears nothing and no one but every time she gives an interview, all she does is complain how others have ill treated her. Do you think other top actresses' paths were paved with rose petals? Except for a Kareena or an Alia, they have all had to go through criticisms, backstabbing, ugly politics, negative portrayal in the media, hordes of people who are more than glad to take you down when they get the chance, including commenters like you who unnecessarily their names through the mud without rhyme or reason, just because of your prejudices.

Salman comes to the ceremony, it was even this year when took away awards for BB, so Sally not authority in this case. Kangana John Aamir, Ajay and Akshay authoritarian who honestly says his opinion about all these fake ceremonies. Akshay if it comes , only for promotion of the new film, not for show, in which he does not want to participate

Hey But Kangana did mention that Filmfare was ok! Have you forgotten already????

We will see if it was OK, if she steps on the red carpet. DP fans, you don't want this to happen. SHE WILL SNATCH THAT BLACK LADY FROM DP and break your dreams. BAHAHAAAHAAHA....

Just because the movie wasn't up to standards doesn't mean the acting can be ignored. Srk and Kajol are naturally fine actors and just because Dilwale was a joke does not mean we ignore their talent. Kajol was extremely good after coming back to Bollywood after a huge break and Srk is always good and plays each role to conviction. Does this mean I think they deserve to win? No.. Ranveer should definitely win for BM or even Varun Dhawan for Badlapur was quite good and as for best actress Deepika was definitely good in Piku as was Kangana for TWMR.
Sonam I can't say much about...

Guys, Sonam deserves to be nominated. There were no other better performances this year. Not Kalki (Margarita with a Straw), or Richa (Masaan), or PC (DDD), or Bhumi (DLKH), or Deepika (Tamasha) or Harshali (BB) . Sure, these performances all got critical acclaim and yes, Sonam was mostly panned for DKD, but who cares, right? Let's give the last 2 nominations to 2 mediocre performances (Sonam and Kajol) that critics didn't like. On a serious note, what are Sonam / Anil doing to ensure Sonam gets nominated every year? Last year Sonam got nominated for Khoobsurat instead of Anushka (PK), Deepika (Finding Fanny), Madhuri (Dedh Ishqiya) or Parineeti (Hasee Toh Phasee). Neither Khoobsurat nor DKD were even hits. Is something happening being closed doors? Disappointed with their nominations for acting categories this year. Irrfan (Piku or Talvar), Ajay (Drishyam) and Akshay (Baby) were 10000x more deserving that SRK for Dabbawale. Everything else was pretty good. Happy to see deserving films like Talvar, Piku, Badlapur and Masaan being nominated.

I think something fishy is going on.....Sonam might be BUYING her nominations

matlab kuch bhe? kajol shahrukh sonam and ranbir are nominated and richa and kalki not?

Filmfare have lost the minuscule credibility they had. A few deserving noms but the entire list has been invalidated with the inclusion of SRK/Kajol for Dilwale and Sonam for that movie nobody saw. Not to mention nominating Gulabo lyrics??????? Utterly ridiculous. #shame

Irrfan for Talvar and Kalki for Margarita with s straw are obviously winning the Filfare critics' trophies, so calm down people! These are the nominations by popular vote, chilllllll

More like.... Invitations for the 61st Filmfare Awards

queen returned this year and NO NOMINATION? aish .. you are end of story!

Ranbir nominated for tamasha not deepika

Ranbir nominated for tamasha not deepika

Ranbir nominated for tamasha not deepika

I cant believe this !! Nobody is talking about kangana ranaut ! I think she was far more deserving than Deepika this year !!! These people should be ashamed of themselves for treating talent over nepotism !! Shame !! I pray Kangana to get the National award for her performances so these people giving away awards to not deserving people are put to shame !!

Nominations??? LOL... More like an Invite LIST to STARS for 61st Filmfare mockery on Friday!!

And here I thought the Filmfare Awards were the most prestigious awards. Some of these nominations are well deserved, but most of them are just..... I don't know..

Okay. Anushka can get a DDD nomination but PC cannot? Deepika who got 100% rave reviews for Tamasha got nominated for BM instead. Wow just wow.

I hope both SRK and Kajol are both extremely embarrassed by their nominations. Absolutely ludicrous.

Can't get over the fact that there's no Priyanka for lead actress for Dil Dhadakne Do. Just watched it again recently and she gives honestly one of the best performances of the year if not THE best female performance of 2015.

I'm happy Anushka and Shehfali are nominated, but indeed sad to see they don't give Priyanka her due. She was very good in Dil Dhadakne Do. Very nuanced performance, same with Bajirao, it was very nuanced and good. Bajirao was indeed like someone said more of a co-lead situation. At least Kashibai gets a nomination albeit supportive, which she will win hopefully. I think Deepika was very good in Piku also. If Priyanka was in lead category for Bajirao then Priyanka as Kashibai was a little bit better than Mastani.

Thumbs up!

Funny you say that since the like dislike buttons are nothing to go by. People here abuse them rather obviously in a vigorous way. But yh, glad we agree :):)

Srk and kajol were so annoying in dilwale. How come they are nominated

Sonam got nominated for Dolly ki Doli, so what? Even Deepika got nominated for Bajirao Mastani. Priyanka should have nominated for Best Actress. BM was a co-lead situation.

Ranver and DP for the WIN!!!! Deepika Padukone - Bajirao Mastani and Deepika Padukone - Piku YAAY! But then wtf: Kajol - Dilwale and Sonam Kapoor - Dolly Ki Doli and SRK - Dilwale! Serious WTF! Praying for Ranveer to nail it and DP as well.

Sonam for DKD is a joke! Should have been Priyanka for DDD.

Sonam is Filmfare's second favorite after Kajol. They had nominated her for Khoobsurat as well. Basically they are dying to give Sonam an award. LOL

Best Actor - Ranveer Singh for sure. No doubt about it.

Many disappointing snubs. Haven't really trusted Indian awards shows in this way. But my predicitions/hopes are:
Best Film: Bajirao Mastani
Best Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but I think Kabir Khan will win
Best Actor in a Leading Role (Male): Ranveer Singh, however I do feel disappointed that Ranbir is not getting his due for his amazing Tamasha performance
Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female): Deepika Padukone for Piku, but Bajirao will probably get lumped in.
Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male): Anil Kapoor will win, but Nawazuddin should win.
Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female): Priyanka Chopra - Bajirao Mastani. Shocked her DDD performance was snubbed, she would win either way. Shefali is also noteworthy for supporting in DDD, but no one else is noteworthy. Tanvi Azmi nominated seems forced.
Best Music: AR Rahman or Bhansali
Best Lyrics: Irshad Kamil - Agar Tum Saath Ho (Tamasha)
Best Playback Singer (Male): Ankit Tiwari - Tu Hai Ke Nahi (Roy)
Best Playback Singer (Female): Alka Yagnik - Agar Tum Saath Ho (Tamasha), or Shreya Ghoshal - Deewani Mastani (Bajirao Mastani). Just going by how difficult the songs are to sing.

Best comment !!

Why only Sonam? Why not Katrina for Phantom? Alia for shaandar? Shraddha for ABCD 2? And why not Sunny leone for Ek paheli leela? LOL.

Dolly ki doli? That came out of nowhere.. Even though I love Kajol and SRK and enjoyed Dilwale, I really don't think their performance was filmfare worthy. No need to even mention sonam.
And why is Nawazudin not mentioned for his performance in BB? He was better than salman in my opinion.
