Another Filmfare awards function has come and gone, with some of the biggest names in Bollywood hosting segments, receiving awards, and even performing. You already know who took home the night’s biggest honours; now read on to know the best parts of the event, which was telecast on Sunday night.

1. Shahid Kapoor‘s performance. He’s already done a Michael Jackson tribute some years ago, but this time around he did it to his own songs, which was unexpected but awesome. The actor danced to Saree Ke Fall Sa and Dhating Naach, but unfortunately left out Gandi Baat – guess it wouldn’t have really gone with the MJ theme. He’s one of the few stars who actually performs at these functions live, and he’s got crazy energy, so it was great to see. I really wanted him to keep dancing… mostly because he seemed to be losing an item of clothing with every song change. #justsaying

2. Karan Johar‘s goof-up. Usually, it’ll be edited out of the show if someone stumbles over their words on stage, but not this time around. Too funny, I suppose! KJo was supposed to announce the winner of the lifetime achievement award (Tanuja) and speak a little bit about her background, but he kept fumbling over the words ‘naayab kaalakaro’ while reading off the teleprompter. Much hilarity ensued, because he tried several times but just couldn’t get it right. Everyone laughed, especially Kajol… which just caused KJo to laugh even more while trying to get the sentence out. He even said, “How could you do this to me, Kajol? It’s your mother receiving the award!” Eventually Farhan Akhtar ended up coming on stage, saying the sentence correctly and then leaving again. Finally, post that, KJo got it right and Tanuja could come up on stage to collect her award (from Amitabh Bachchan).

3. Dhanush‘s acceptance speech. The actor accepted his award for Best Debut (Male) for Raanjhanaa, his first Hindi film, despite the fact that he’s already done upwards of 20 Tamil films. In his speech, he said, “This just shows that wherever you go, there’s more to learn and you’re always a newcomer.” Loved how soft-spoken he was and that he admitted that Kolaveri Di is boring now and it took him a long time to get over that song.

4. Ranveer Singh‘s performance. He’s another one who performs live, and this guy really knows how to get the crowd going. Not only did he do a funny act where he urged the likes of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan to patch-up (by claiming their box office collections would be amazing), but he also broke out the Tattad Tattad. Of course, in true Ranveer fashion, it wasn’t enough for him to just perform – he also had to go and interact with the audience and get some stars to do it as well.

5. Deepika Padukone‘s acceptance speech. Okay, how adorable was it that she took a fan along to the show and invited her on stage? DPad said that the award was for all those who supported her, and it looked like she was tearing up a bit while saying so! A great, heartfelt speech from someone who has grown a lot recently and deserves all the praise coming her way.

6. Vivek Oberoi whistling during Salman Khan‘s performance. Salman’s act was prerecorded, which meant that the editors obviously had to insert bits and pieces of the stars clapping and cheering during the dance. Very slyly, someone decided to put in a quick shot of Vivek whistling. As if! *lol*
