Filmfare Awards

The complete list of the 60th Filmfare Awards nominations are out and we think the list is extremely impressive. No ‘best use of social media category’ or ‘most popular actor in a movie‘ award exists and I think that’s a really good thing. For once, we have an award ceremony that acknowledges good cinema and nothing else and we’re glad it’s being followed by the most popular (and the oldest) award function in India. So check out the nominations and our predictions and tell us if you agree or disagree as to who will take home the lady!

BEST FILM

2 States
Haider
Mary Kom
PK
Queen

Our prediction: Haider

It was daring, controversial and fearless! Movies like Haider need to be encouraged and seeing that it has received numerous accolades, I think Haider is the strongest contender for this category.

BEST DIRECTOR

Abhishek Varman 2 States
Anurag Kashyap Ugly
Rajkumar Hirani PK
Vikas Bahl Queen
Vishal Bhardwaj Haider

Our Prediction: Vikas Bahl

Vikas Bahl

He made Queen! Scratch that, he had the will to make a movie like Queen. Such a wonderful, sensitive and perfect portrayal of a sheltered woman who finds her way in this crazy world. If Vikas Bahl doesn’t win, my heart will break.

BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE (MALE)

Aamir KhanPK
Akshay KumarHoliday
Hrithik RoshanBang Bang
Randeep HoodaRang Rasiya
Shahid KapoorHaider

Our Prediction: Shahid Kapoor 

Shahid Kapoor

I can’t even think of anyone else winning this. Shahid taught us what real ‘chutzpah‘ is.

BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE (FEMALE)

Kangana RanautQueen
Madhuri DixitDedh Ishqiya
Priyanka ChopraMary Kom
Rani MukerjiMardaani
Sonam KapoorKhoobsurat

Let’s just say there wouldn’t even be any other names in the nominations if I were in charge. Maybe that’s why I’m not in charge.

BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE (MALE)

Abhishek BachchanHappy New Year
Kay Kay MenonHaider
Riteish DeshmukhEk Villain
Ronit Roy2 States
Tahir Raj BhasinMardaani

Our Prediction: Tahir Raj Bhasin 

Tahir Raj Bhasin
Tahir Raj Bhasin

Okay, honestly this is one of the toughest categories to predict because all the performances here have been superlative. I’ve chosen Tahir Raj Bhasin because this was an extremely powerful and unconventional debut for the guy, plus he’s a fan of Walter White from Breaking Bad! Also..have you seen these pictures? Jokes apart, I’ll be happy with anyone who wins this award.

BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE (FEMALE)

Amrita Singh2 States
Dimple KapadiaFinding Fanny
Juhi Chawla Gulaab Gang
Lisa HaydonQueen
TabuHaider

Our Prediction: Tabu

Again, the actresses in this category were excellent, but Tabu was magic.

Himesh Reshammiya, Meet Bros Anjjan and Honey Singh – Kick
Mithoon, Ankit Tiwari and SOCH – Ek Villain

Our Prediction: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Shankar Ehsaan Loy

Mast Magan from 2 States makes me believe in love, magic and unicorns (not many things make me believe in love, magic and unicorns). Actually, the entire album makes me (and my MissMalini HQ) believe in…you guessed it right! Love, magic and unicorns!

Here, listen to the song again!

Patakha Guddi shows us what Highway is all about and that I think the lyrics of the song are just magic (apart from A.R Rahman‘s wonderful score).

Revisit the wonderful lines!

Arijit SinghMast magan (2 States)

Arijit Singh is nominated for two songs! There are more than 60% chances that he’ll win. I think he should win for Mast Magan because… remember the three words? Love, magic and unicorns… yea… those!

BEST PLAYBACK SINGER (FEMALE)

Jyoti Nooran and Sultana NooranPatakha guddi (Highway)
Kanika KapoorBaby doll (Ragini MMS 2)
