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..
 


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 was just using Housefull as an example..mostly because it's the only one I have seen this year LOL 
 
Yes critics critics tend to not like comedies that the aam junta watches and turns into an average/hit/blockbuster (Housefull, TMK, Welcome, SIK, etc..) but even they love good comedies. At the end of the day, who wouldn't like to be throroughly entertained and be destressed by a good comedy?
 
Dabangg, G3 (help me on this) were both well appreciated by critics this year.


I don't know about Dabang. But Yes G3 was appreciated by most critics...trust me it shocked me because they don't like golmaal kind of films.  LOL

Okay no offence meant here...

but here is the recipe i heard of... most of the voting population at the kodak theatre are conservative jews who made it big.
the recipe is this
-nothing homosexual(Milk Lost)
-nothing anti-holocaust(Reader lost)
-nothing weird(Benjamin button)
-pro holocaust movies
-super hero movies dont win as well(dark knight)

there was more in the list but i cant remember it off the top of my head

when was the last time a comedy won oscarLOL

yes...in the past, films like anand, khuubsoorat, chupke chupke, hum hain raahi pyaar ke, 3 idiots, lage raho munnabhai, munnabhai mbbs...all won the award for best film...why?? they were actually well made comedies...comedies that got it right...same with biwi no 1, dulhan hum le jaayenge, main hoon naa, OSO,partner, chasmee badoor, chachi 420, jab we met, no entry which recieved nominations for best film....comedy is recognised, if done well.  but it is hard to get them right..and very few films succeed in tht aspect. 


Okay you have a good point there even though I don't think 3 idiots won because of it's comedy. And OSO was not a good comedy. But that's just my opinion. But yes I recall when Munnabhai film won and that's one of my favorite movie that I watch over and over. It was def a well made comedy.

but then there's a difference between being appreciated, and being nominated for the mainstream best film's category.
