Yes comedy is the genre that critics are most biased against. Comedy films hardly win awards and it is unfair in some ways because comedy isn't easy..it's hard to make people laugh..but in the last few years, there just haven't been any good comedies barring Golmaal I guess (for me the first one was really good, 2nd really bad, haven't seen 3rd one yet but that's supposed to be good).

Most comedies seem like they're trying to force us to laugh by hook or crook, like the last scene in Housefull where everybody is laughing Confused. I thought bits and bits of Housefull were funny but it certainly isn't a great comedy like Hera Pheri or Andaz Apna Apna worthy of awards..

lensa, i dunt think many would appreciate guzaarish  being nominated...kurbaan was a serious movie too...was it nominated in a lot of categories tht year??...3 idiots recieved more nominations...and ppl didnt mind tht coz it was clearly the better film amongst the two....similarly...saawariya was shunned at awards while OSO recieved many nominations....why?? because ppl appreciate good films...not the genre they are made in...thts the way it should be. 


I actually enjoyed Kurbaan more than 3 idiots. But awards giving importance more to OSO and 3 idiots over Sawariya and Kurbaan has to with boxoffice more than anything.

I thought Welcome and No entry were way funnier than OSO.. Comedy deserves its own awards.. screw the regular bolly awards..  Comedy is such a popular and powerful genre in bolly.. they should have their own special awards.

I don't think anyone is saying Housefull deserves an award. We are just saying critics and awards are more biased towards it. And even the audience sometimes.

I thought the same too. Welcome and No entry were funnier def than OSO esp because of Anil kapoor for me. That guy is really good at comedy. OSO is really overrated. I agree comdies films should have their own awards since no one gives them credit in bollywood awards.

But do the comedy films get awards in the category of best film?

as per the way i've read into these things, these people have nothing against slapsticks.

What they're against is the way bolly awards give importance to big names, who don't necesarily create the 'most' qualitative material out there.
they hate how directors of good movies, like Udaan, and LSD, get completely sidetracked by people like Sajid Khan.

No one gives a rat's intestine about filmmakers who try to think out of the box . That's why, the most that Love Sex aur Dhoka got was "woah, what a cool movie". it didn't get recognition, and as per the nominations, it won't. 
The most these movies ever get is "best critic's". 

that's what they want to change. They want it to be possible that films like Udaan and LSD will get into the 'best film' category, not just the 'critic's best film' category
