Earlier i used to think that Screen awards are better than those Filmfare ones where the awards are fixed, but yesterday's ceremony belied all my expectations...there wasnt a single item which could be called enjoyable..neither dances..they were all looking the same with same moves and dresses......and for this they get crores...nor the anchors did us any proud....and Ashutosh Gowrikar took the cake:)
Yesterday's favourites were Rock on and Jodha Akbar, only saving grace were the few awards won by a really meritorious film...WEDNESDAY. Personally I found it strange that Shahana was given the award and Illa Arun not...because Illa did a very different character in Welcome to sajjanpur and did with so much of aplomb...she deserved it. JA was good , but couldnt be called the best movie of the year.
The lyrics..singer ..male and female both were from one movie and for the best music it was a different movie..i find it quite a contradiction in itself...if there was no good song or good lyrics, then how come the music was best?
Few awards...even my H..he knows not much about bollywood, but after watching with me has become a little pro:)..even he predicted...like best actor in a comic role...Tusshar and the best Jodi...Abhishek and John.......See some people have to get something:), becuase now it has a become a trend either they must be given an award or a few crores for their performance..otherwise they dont come to the function...always the excuse is there...no dates:) . I read somewhere that Akshay demanded multicrores for a performance and when organisers couldnt afford that they promised him an award, but here..he though he was getting best actor, but he was given the best popular actor:), so all that charity and magnanimity he showed of refusing the award, as Aamir deserved it.
One thing i have always felt bad about is the snobbish attitude of anchors...like even sometime for senior actors also, they dont take the nbames with some respect, then when abig shot gets an small award even, he is given ample time on the stage, but whenevr not so big get an award, they are not asked to say anything,, it has happened so many times that sometimes even i wanted some to say, but they were not given an opportunity and this time the anchors went even an step further like hurrying up, or getting forward without giving anytime to the awardees.
So yesterday the presence was quite low..No Shahrukh..he is most unsporting person..never comes to a function unless he gets something,Amitabh,Abhishek,Salman, etc etc.
Faraha was glowing but no good as an anchor...her remark..what we have to do for money...was really in a bad taste..shows her highhanded attitude.
Rekha..She never changes..the same sarees..kanjivarams and jwellery shop and hyper on the stage:)
Twinkle Khanna was looking most elegant and beautiful, never saw her like this even in the movies:), their pair was looking best.
Aishwarya was also looking very good in her Indian attire.
Jaya Bacchan was for a change in an elegant white saree and her solitaires(earrings) were the rock size.
Kangana was looking ravishing and Hritik gentleman that he is.
Now for a little gossip:)
Jaya never once smiled at Aishwarya, even when she got the prize:)
Akshay expecting to get the best actor for singh iis kingh..isnt it too much?
It was pathetic to see...
Akshay getting miffed at not getting the best actor award,
Rekha stating..she has nothing..no one and no money.
Ashutosh and Sajid having a verbal fight,
Watching Sajid in a backless dress
and irritating to see Neeraj Pandey with his Chewing gum all the time,
And so quite a lacklustre affair.......
And now I WISH YOU ALL
