Jyothika has been named best actress for 2005 for portraying a split personality in 'Chandramukhi'. And Priyamani won the honour for 2006 for her effective performance as a bubbly, rural girl in 'Paruthiveeran'.

For 2005, director Rama Narayanan gets the prestigious Anna Award instituted in memory of former chief minister C.N. Annadurai's and actor Vivek bags the Kalaivanar Award for best comedian.

For the same year, Thamarai gets the Bharathidasan award as best lyricist. 'Kasthoorimaan' will be given an award for portraying women in a positive light.

The best music director for 2005 is Harris Jayaraj for his compositions in 'Anniyan' and 'Ghajini'. Yuvan Shankar Raja has bagged the best music director slot for 2006.
