59th Filmfare Awards: Nominations’ Full List

The official nominations of India’s most prestigious film awards are out! 2013 has been a year of newer records and multiple money spinners. With Bollywood’s superstars testing the new recipes of entertaining the audiences, the year has set newer benchmarks in terms of qualitative success as well. Koimoi reveals to you the nominations of the 59th Idea Filmfare Awards.

Battling it out for the best film are the year’s most powerful ventures namely Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Chennai Express, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ramleela, Raanjhanaa and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. While more powerful films like Lootera, Shuddh Desi Romance, Kai Po Che! or mostly The Lunchbox might have lost out due to the underwhelming response of the audiences, the list holistically encapsulates the best films of the year.

The filmmakers who are nominated in the Best Director category are Anand Rai for Raanjhanaa, Abhishek Kapoor for Kai Po Che!, Ayan Mukherji for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Rohit Shetty for Chennai Express and lastly Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Ramleela. It was interesting to note that the jury decided to incorporate Kapoor for Kai Po Che!. However, giving Vikramaditya Motwane a miss wasn’t convincing.

The handsome leading men of the industry who made it into the nominations’ list for Best Actor category are Farhan Akhtar for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Dhanush for Raanjhanaa, Ranbir Kapoor for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Hrithik Roshan for Krissh 3, Ranveer Singh for Ramleela and Shah Rukh Khan for Chennai Express. Shockingly, two names remained conspicuously missing from this category. It is a shock how Irrfan Khan was not nominated for his mesmeric performance in The Lunchbox. Going by the reason that The Lunchbox wasn’t exactly a mainstream film, it is a surprise how the jury missed out on including Dhoom 3 which has emerged as one of the biggest hits of the year.

Amongst the Best Actresses of the year, Deepika Padukone managed to bag nominations for both Chennai Express and Ramleela. 2013 has indeed been a Numero Uno year for the actress. Parineeti Chopra was a pleasant surprise on the list as she got nominated for her performance in Shuddh Desi Romance. Newbie Shraddha Kapoor too bagged a nomination for Aashiqui 2, while actress Sonakshi Sinha was appreciated for the artistic rendering in Lootera. Sonam Kapoor too made it in the nominations’ list for Raanjhanaa.

Amongst the supporting actors, Aditya Roy Kapur got nominated for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Anupam Kher for Special 26, Nawazuddin Siddiqui for The Lunchbox, Pankaj Kapur for Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, Rajkumar Yadav for Kai Po Che! and lastly Vivek Oberoi for Krrish 3.

For the Best Music of the year, the following music directors were nominated. Amit Trivedi for Lootera, Ankit Tiwari, Mithoon and Jeet Ganguly for Aashiqui 2, A.R Rahman for Raanjhanaa, Pritam for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ramleela and finally Vishal-Shekhar for Chennai Express.

For the best lyrics category, the following got nominated – Amitabh Bhattacharya for the song Shikayatein (Lootera), Amitabh Bhattacharya again for the song Kabira in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Mithoon for the song Tum hi ho in Aashiqui 2. Prasoon Joshi for the song Zinda in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Swanand Kirkire for the song Manja in Kai Po Che!.

    NOW THIS IS MANIPULATED. I M NOT AAMIR KHAN FAN BUT BEST ACTOR AWARD DESERVE BY AAMIR KHAN FOR DHOOM 3.

    THIS PROOF THAT THOSE WHO ATTEND AWARDS AND PERFORM ON STAGE ARE ONLY GETTING AWARDS.

    Hrithik and AAmir not nominated even aftr superlative performances in K3 and D3 shocking. Even more shocking is SRK nominated for CE.

    Looking at the list Farhan Akhtar will win for sure. As a viewer disappointed to see prestigous awards like Filmfare being so biased.
