We never expect Filmfare to recognise the real talent beyond the stars and the celebs. Because they are star-fuckers who sell stars, want to keep everyone happy and want them to show up at their annual award ceremony. Its a tv show after all. Needs trps, needs money! Its all about how Film-Un-fair they are. But this year it seems lil better than last few years. Here is the list of winners…

BTW, Bachchans didnt attend the Filmfare Award this year in protest against this story done by their sister publication Mumbai Mirror few days back. They have been demanding apology from Mirror. But so far, nothing.

PS – Here is goss of the day. It seems Riteish Deshmukh & Jacqueline Fernandez’s act was sponsored by the producer of their forthcoming film Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai. Remember last year Vashu Bhagnani paid a fat cheque to Filmfare for getting his son Jackie Bhagnani on stage for the promotion of his debut film. He happily informed all his family members, relatives and friends asking them to watch his son dance at the Filmfare Awards ceremony. Remote was kept aside and they waited and waited and waited for Jackie to show up on small screen. Surprise! There was no Jackie act when it was telecasted on Sony Tv. Why ? Because Filmfare never guaranteed them that the act will get tv play too. It was edited out. Aur bolo ?

    Best Supporting Actor (Female): Kalki Koechlin for Dev D ..hahahhhhaha whatay FAIL! …

    And how did Trivedi get an award for best background score for Dev D? As far as i remember, ALL the musical cues in Dev D were bits of the SONGS… someone please explain this to my numbheaded brain, saar…

    Oh wait these are Filmfare awards….

  2. Kenny says:

    Gotta agree that they’ve been surprisingly un-unfair this time.

  3. Fatema says:

    Best supporting actress – Kalki. In the popular category. Are you kidding me? And you say it’s not unfair and not rigged? Wow.

  4. Nimisha says:

    Best debutante director – MALE and Best debutante director – FEMALE!!!! WTF!!

    Talk about creating categories to give awards!!!!

  5. moifightclub says:

    @Nims – thats seriously WTF! but didnt mind it because both are great choice.

    @Fatema – dev d guys CANT rig filmfare, that m sure about. also check out the nominations – Arundhati Nag for ‘Paa’, Divya Dutta for ‘Delhi 6 ‘, Dimple Kapadia for ‘Luck By Chance ‘, Kalki Koechlin for ‘Dev D ‘, Supriya Pathak for ‘Wake Up Sid’ and Goswami for ‘Firaaq‘. i think its nice choice as all the nominees are on same ground.

    @mogambo – and the strange thing is screen didnt nominate him saying all the songs are in background. so how can they nominate him in best music! poor soul…where does he fit in ?strange are the ways.

  6. mogambo says:

    Filmfare or not i’m just glad Trivedi got his big break. Great soundtrack album, Dev D.

    But as ridiculous as the list is, Dimple and Shahana were so much better than Kalki. And they grossly excluded Deepti Naval for Firaaq. Oh well… awards shows suck anyway

  7. Sudhir says:

    So…UTV has managed to pull some strings. No doubt abt that. Their News channel was highlighting that both DevD and 3 Idiots have got 6 fimfares each. At least am happy for Anurag, good for him.
