Bollywood fans lash out at unfair Filmfare nominations

Rajkummar Rao's Oscar entry 'Newton' failed to make the cut

Entertainment Desk January 19, 2018

First introduced in 1954, Filmfare Awards is one of the biggest award show in India honouring artistic and technical excellence in the country's film industry.

With the recent nominations being revealed, many fans seem to be upset with the line up stating that some of the best performances didn't make the cut.

Rajkummar Rao's Newton was missing from the list even though the film was picked as India's entry for the Oscars. However, according to NDTV, he is nomination for the Best Supporting Actor for Bareilly ki Barfi is seen as a consolation prize. Konkona Sen Sharma's Death in the Gunj wasn't featured in the Best Director nominations either, along with Vikrant Massey who didn't get nominated despite having a very good 2017.

Speculations rose on Varun Dhawan's acknowledgement for Badrinath ki Dulhania.

Twitteratis were outraged by the unfair selection and expressed their concerns.

Even film critic Rajeev Masand addressed the same issue stating that the nominations are a joke.
