The 54th Film-Unfair Awards

What else can you call these awards when a movie like A Wednesday does not even get nominated for Best Film, leave alone getting the award. Anupam Kher's stellar performance goes unnoticed. At least Naseer got nominated for Best Actor - thank god somebody in the jury panel remembered him!)
And to crown it all - Jodha Akbar gets Best Film. That's not all - Ashutosh Gowarikar with his Jodha Akbar (which should have been awarded Best filmy-remedy for beating insomnia) beats Neeraj Pandey's A Wednesday and gets Best Director.....
Just check out the movies which got nominated for Best Film - Dostana, Ghajini, Jodha Akbar, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and Rock On. What is the criteria for getting nominated? Even if you consider for a moment that success at box office is the main criteria because movies are after all held up or thrown to the dustbin by movie-goers. Even then, it makes no sense at all.
