Saturday night was filled with glittering gorgeous stars, music, dance and of course the antics of Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan at the Filmfare Awards. For the 53rd Annual Filmfare Awards, the field was so rich that no one film came out on top and many films took home a statue or two or more. This certainly gave some of our journalists a few surprises because before the awards were given out, we asked them to try and predict who would win. So how did they do? Well, pretty good. Let’s look and see how each of them did.
Sandy correctly predicted who would win in 3 categories: Best Director, Best Actress and of course being a huge SRK fan was ecstatic at getting Best Actor right as well.
Prathna was right for 4 awards; Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Lyrics. Though she must get an honorable mention (known as HM from now on) because she picked Monty Sharma for Best Music for Saawariya and he was presented with the R. D. Burman Award for Most Promising Musical Talent.
Aditi also guessed 4 categories right but she gets 2 HMs as well because besides Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress, she also said that Monty Sharma would win for Best Music. And she predicted that Shimit Amin would win for Best Director and he got the Critics Choice Award.
Aly did very well guessing correctly in 6 out of the 10 categories. Along with Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Lyrics, and Best Playback Singer both Male and Female, he also gets an HM. His HM is because he predicted that Darsheel would win the Best Actor category and Darsheel won the Critics’ Choice for Best Actor.
Stacey has won with a total of 8 if you count HMs, however since they probably should not be included, she and Aly tied. Stacey got 6 right with her guesses for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Lyrics. Her two HMs are the same as Aditi’s because of her choices for Best Director and Best Music.
Since HMs are not actually correct guesses within the category we are happy to report that once again our master of predicting the winners of the awards is Razeen aka Raz! His predictions were right on the mark in 7 categories: Best Film, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Music, Best Lyrics and Best Playback Singer Female. Congratulations Razeen!!
How did you do? Better than our journalists? We certainly enjoyed trying to predict the winners and plan to make this an annual story! Next up is the Zee Cine awards and we will once again try and predict who will win. Just you wait until then Razeen!!
