2020 was a disappointing year for Bollywood as only a handful of films released. While the first quarter of the years saw movies released in theatres, the others that released took the digital/OTT route. But keeping the spirit up, the 66th Filmfare Awards 2021 were held digitally, and we have the complete winner list below.


While the late Irrfan Khan was bestowed with the lifetime achievement award, the actor was also named the best actor for his performance in Angrezi Medium. While the Taapsee Pannu lead Thappad took home seven trophies, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior won four, and Gulabo Sitabo came in next with three wins.
