    Why Amir is not nominated for Talaash ? Why Salman is nominated for Dabang 2 ? How come Salman over Amir ? Blind idiots jury members !

    Barfi was a nice movie but i dont think Ranbir should win best actor award for that. He was good but not better than Hritik of Agneepath, SRK of JTHJ, Amir of Talaash or Irfan of Pan Singh Tomar. These actors are masters in acting.

    As far as best actress is concerned again not Priyanka. I like her but its obvious that Vidya Balan is way better actress than her and she was fab in Kahaani.

    Apart from nominations, I hope we gotta see SRK hosting awards with Saif. They rock together.

    Love you SRK HeartHeart

    Even though Barfi was a great film, I feel disabled characters on screen have crutches, which is why all the films whether its Amitabh in Paa, SRK in MNIK, Hrithik in Guzaarish, or that little kid from TZP all get awards. Ranbir is great, but this time it should be Hrithik for Agneepath.

    I'm surprised Salman has been nominated for Dabangg 2 but not for Ek Tha Tiger, shouldn't it be the other way round? n how come Aamir hasn't been nominated for Talaash?? Honestly speaking these awards are rather silly

    Sridevi for English Vinglish OR Vidya forKahani and
    Irfan khan for Pan singh Tomar

    barfi should not win any award. It is copied film which has lost its Oscar nomination due to plagiarism
