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!.

    • Not gonna happen. Its filmfare, its prestigious.

      Tell me one instance where SRK won the filmfare where he didnt deserve it.

      And not to forget, last 2 yrs it was Ranbir who won it, a well deserved one.

      • but y da z he nominated ths tym…was hs performnce worth being nominated?? and y nt aamir khan while he ws superb in dhoom3…u cn see a youngr artist geting award instead of srk but not any of hs contmpries…nt fair

      • Yes I can
        2003 : He won for Devdas. Ajay Devgan deserved to win for Company.

        1999: He won for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Ajay Devgan deserved to win for Zakhm or Aamir Khan for Ghulam

        1998: He won for Dil Toh Paagal Hai. Anil Kapoor deserved to win for Viraasat

        Before you come to any conclusions. I genuinely like SRK and am happy when he won for Swades, Chak De India and My Name is Khan. But THERE IS a lot of bias towards him at Filmfare.

      • Ok I’ll give you one 1999 he won it for dil to pagal hai when Ajay devgan deserved it for zakham. or 1998 when anil deserved it for virasat. You may remember that ajay actually won the national award for zakham. This started as an award that rewarded acting but has become a commercial venture. Irfan khan has more talent than all the other khans in his little toe. He deserved it last year for paan singh toomer yet they gave it to ranbir.

        • I agree, if Bhaag milkha Bhaag is going to win award for this year, then definitely Paan singh tomar had to be for the last year, shameless FILMFARE.

  1. Indian film awards are all about film promotions & TRPs. They do not have any credibility. SHAMELESS…! Film Awards….HA…HA…HA…

  2. This is how filmfare has ignored aamir khan always. I request every dhoom 3,aamir and katrina fan to watch dhoom 3 again and make it reach at such a zenith of success that even these shameless people are not able to ignore it.

  3. its so sad how come chennai express be nominated in the best film category n they did not add krrish 3 n dhoom 3 i cant believe it

  4. Chennai Express should not be there in any category. Film got success because of SRK, Deepika and Rohit Shetty but it does not deserve any award. People must see films like Lunchbox and Lootera. Where is Aamir and Hrithik in the list. Ranbir singh must be there for Lootera but not for Raamleela. Only Deepika acting was good in Chennai. Shahrukh is a good actor but not the best. As an indian odiance, we want good movies which succeed commercially as well.

  5. I can’t believe this!!!…really filmfare??2013 gave us so many good quality films…and u nominate these???????chennai express?really????PATHETIC NOMINATIONS!!!…

    • now a new name in the list – Hrithik Roshan. First guzaarish and then now krrish 3. hrithik ignored despite good performances. I think now filmfare is made for srk only

      • SRK chamcha hai yaar maska marta hai.. oska attitude bas .oose hi pata…hai .. or ooske khaas produce ,directer ko hi pata hai

  6. Roshans, Krrish 3 is ignored to give away award for srk, ranbir, ranveer. very good. list of actors deserved but not getting the same is getting high: ajay devgan, aamir khan and now hrithik ranveer singh acted better than hrithik roshan. please answer

  7. Kai po che deserved to be in best films . While vikram aditya motvane deserved the best director title. Its first time filmfare is being biased .due to this the film_makers like shojit sarcar(madras cafe) , Abhishek kapoor(kai po che) , aditya motvane ( lootera ) etc dont get what they deserve .

  8. I can sense the bad smell of partiality they didn’t nominated AAMIR KHAN who was the most deserving candidate

  9. Where is akshay kumar for best perfomance in special 26,best action in boss,best villan performance in OUATIMD-2…..where is hritik roshan for krrish3….whr is Amir khan for Dhoom3….whr is shahid kapoor for PPNH and R….RAJKUMAR…etc….these r the real and deserving films of these actors…so they should get award not the cartoonist heros like srk,ranbir sing,r.kapoor….etc

  10. where is rakesh roshan for best director nd hrithik for best actor??????? as a director krrish 3 is rakesh sir best job till date. nd hrithik’s finest performane till date as a krrish,rishna nd rohit.ranibir kapoor nd dhanush .they act like normal guys in those movies.dhanush ‘s dialogue delivery was worst.where is irrfan khan for lunch box??????????

  11. everyone saying chenai ex. was soppose to be not in filfare list.. its right..if chennai ex. is nominate.. why not,, R RAJKUMAR..

  12. everyone saying chenai ex. was soppose to be not in filfare list.. its right..if chennai ex. is nominate.. why not,, R RAJKUMAR.. OR SPECIEL 26

    • chrismas movies are considrd in same year….don2 srk ws nominated in 2011…thy consdrd dhoom3 bt irony z hy dnt find it worthy of nomintn nt evn aamir fr best actor

    • hrithik and irfaan not getting nominated , nobody should watch it , they try to please srk, yashraaj and dharma production only

  13. Shame!!!! filmfare awards,,, i’m say sure, shahrukh already buy award from filmfare commatee. Because last two year haven’t get award. So shahrukh think, OK! i buy this year award but also can’t get award because he give some m-n-y……

  14. Where is krrish3 and dhoom3? Its totally joke of the year because rakesh and hrithik is not nominated for his category its totally disappointed.amir sir says truth
    “yeh sab toh fix hota hai ye sab setting hota hai isliye iska koi importance nahi hai.”

    • @evalyn yeah you are right he is such a cheapster. he always uys awards otherwise noone gives damn shitt to that crap actor. in his career he has paid most of the time to gain sympathy because he has very few fan following as compared to aamir and salman.

  15. 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.

  16. @srk sale ki gyi k3 and d3 se….bhaag milkha bhaag ko milna chaiye awards……..and Raajhaana ko…milna chaiye debut mai….male…..and wheres R.Rajkumar……..sab achi picture ka nominees diya he nahi….

    srk sucks….

    srk sucks

    srk sucks..





  18. hey salon, people only vote their favorite actors, nominations nd selections were done as per d more no. of votes got.ameer nd hreetik has very less no of fans so they were not nominated.nd SRK has huge no. of fans so he wl get more awards nd acting s dat wat srk did in swades mnik ddlj vz. not dat stupid doom3
