Hey, Bollywood Awards Shows: Cut The Crap And Watch A Movie Before Giving Awards To Random People

The Filmfare nominations are just another reminder that awards shows are a sham and need to be better.

Varun Dhawan, on the other hand, has been nominated for Badrinath Ki Dulhania, where he plays a man who relentlessly stalks a woman and treats her like trash when she rejects him.

Let's also point out that only ONE female director was nominated.

In a year that also included exemplary movies made by women such as Lipstick Under My Burkha (Alankrita Shrivastava) and A Death in the Gunj (Konkona Sen Sharma), snubbing those directors for their work is ridiculously unfair.

While some of these movies have been nominated in technical categories, ignoring the work of worthy actors and filmmakers proves that awards shows don't care about acknowledging talent and never have.

The point is to bring talent to the forefront. So, even if they do win these technical awards or win some "Critics' Choice" awards, the point we're still making is that good work is not worthy of mainstream success and THAT needs to stop.

Nothing I say will change Bollywood. But I will say it anyway: DO BETTER. BE BETTER.
