Just a little background on how the jury works: 

The rules and regulations for the awards have come up mostly through discussions on Twitter. What has been decided is: A jury of film critics on Twitter AND film buffs on Twitter (who are nominated by Twitterati) gives their nominations for the Best in the categories. We combine those lists and come up with final nominations. And then ask people to vote for every category for a particular number of days, so we can come up with the winners!

 

The Film Critics who have already agreed to be part of the movement are:

1. Pratim Das Gupta (@PratimDGupta) - Film Critic, The Telegraph

2. Aniruddha Guha (@AniruddhaGuha) - Film Critic, DNA

3. Pragya Tiwari (@mriganayanika) - Film Critic, Tehelka

4. Aseem Chhabra (@chhabs) - Noted Film Critic and Columnist

5. Rajeev Masand (@rajeevmasand) - Film Critic, CNN IBN

6. Anupama Chopra (@anupamachopra) - Film Critic, NDTV

7. Mihir Fadnavis (@mihirfadnavis) - Noted Film Critic

8. Shubha Shetty Saha (@shubhaS) - Entertainment Editor, ibnlive.com

9. Sudhish Kamath (@SudhishKamath) Film Critic - The Hindu

10. Bikas Mishra (@dearcinema) - DearCinema.com

11. Sameer panje (@cinemaaonline) - Cinemaaonline.com

12. Sukanya Verma (@SukanyaVerma) - Film Critic - Rediff.com

13. Namrata Joshi (@NamrataJoshi) - Film Critic - Outlook

14. Raja Sen (@RajaSen) - Film Critic, Rediff.com

15. Shubhra Gupta (@shubhragupta) - Film Critic, Indian Express

16. Ajay Brahmatmaj (@ajaybrahmatmaj) - Film Critic, Dainik Jagran

17. Anna Vetticad (@annavetticad) - Deputy Editor, Headlines Today

I still think these voting system would not be fair. The one on twitter I mean. Watch the celebs on twitter are the ones who are gonna win because there the ones who have more fans on twitter. And the jury members will probably vote for the celebs on twitter because they know they are the ones on there and that will know about this award than the outsiders like kajol, Vidya, kareena, Aish or Katrina. I don't think this would be any better than the actual bollywood awards. Fans are gonna vote for their favorite actress even if they don't think they deserve it.

i disagree on the jury choosing the celebs on twitter the jury list they have so far should know better than that as for the fans I agree they will vote for their fav but these awards right now like the screen I really dont get how those numbers are working you know what I am talking about so i like this tweeter thing better

& I am sure Kat will not make this nomination list matter fact dont think PC will either
