The movie awards this year, be it the 81st Academy Awards or the 15th Star Screen Awards or the 54th Filmfare Awards, have been disappointing. Though Slumdog Millionaire may be a good movie yet I think it didn’t deserve the Oscar for best picture. Similarly a wonderful movie like A Wednesday did not get a single award at Filmfare Awards. Jodha Akbar wasn’t that bad maybe but I don’t think it deserved the Best Film award at both Star Screen and Filmfare. Hrithik won for Best Actor when Nasseruddin Shah gave an awesome performance in A Wednesday? Then we have winners like Tusshar Kapoor for Best Actor in Comic Role for his “wonderful” comedy in Golmaal Returns!! I found the movie “One Two Three” funnier than Golmaal Returns and Arshad Warsi’s comedy a lot better in “Sunday”.
A blogger like us, Vee got irked by the obvious unfairness of the awards and decided to ask the public for their verdict. He came up with the idea of conducting the people’s own movie awards – the MovieManiax Awards 2008.
The MovieManiax Awards is an initiative to honor the best of Hindi Cinema. Being the first year of it’s running, the categories are limited and we have not ventured into the technical awards. The nominations under the categories have been discussed, scrutinized and finally arrived on conclusion by a team of Bloggers. The rationale behind the nominations was to bring in the best irrespective of Box-Office status. And now it’s up to you fellow Bloggers to have your voice counted to decide the deserving one. Please participate in this endeavor and spread the word amongst the fellow Bloggers and non-bloggers; basically anyone who has access to internet.
