  1. when bocapsule starduat award everyone is praising badlapur here is no nomination for badlapur what a crap site it is …

  2. Comment:i think best actor should be given to akshay as he has done 4 different genres in 2015 and baby should be the best movie.

  3. Remake films are not considered for filmfare awards….. I’m telling about drishyam movie…..bollyarena: plz change and learn how nominations are considered…..

    • Hi Eric – remakes have always been nominated – Ghajini, Tere Naam, are just a few examples. However the film itself didn’t really work in Hindi like in the other languages and I am surprised to see it being nominated. Irrespective of this I still am bewildered when ARR won for Saathiya when 80% of the soundtrack was dubbed from the original. I wonder if the same error will be committed when OK Kanmani is remade in Hindi in 2016.

  4. Best actor salman khan for bajrangi bhaijan (y)
    Best film should be bajrangi bhaijan
    Best debuet female should be harshali malhotra for bb
    Best supporting actor Nawaz for bb

  5. Salman khan for bb best film bb best director kabir khan best supporting actor nawazuddin Siddiqui and harshali mslohotra child artist

  6. Come on bajrangi bhaijaan hawe success because of the child best actor is ranveer singh 1000%performance of bajirao mastani he deserved +national award

  7. King ranveer singh hageha next movie befikre and ram lakhan +dwarf aditya chopra rohit sheety a.lrai =blockbuster of the year

  8. Salman khan for bhajrani bhajaan
    Or varun dhawan for badlapur
    It’s about time they give salman an best actor award.

    Anuksha sharma for nh10 she’s deserves it as it’s her career best performance.

    • If they stop favoring Shahrukh Khan….He doesn’t deserve the awards….Too boring of an old actor…just lands or begs for good movies would have had better results if acted by other actors…Besides. SRK talks about Intolerance…He is Muslim and will never be an Indian…..Public fooled by him….HD should be shut out from hosting any award function. Public wants change and younger blood

  9. Why is Bajirao Mastani music being ignored. The album has been loved by critics and has a few numbers for masses too. I wish an album would stop being nominated just because AR Rahman is in it. Tamasha was a very boring album and id Dilwale which is only half an album is considered then BM more than deserve to be in it.

    • Plz dont insult ar rahman. He dint asked fr nominations and awards. If u dont like him pit for sum other person. He s d most down to earth person in the industry. It takes so much hardwork and pains to survive in bollywood by being a south indian without any background.

  10. filmfare awards 2016

    best actor akshay kumar
    best actress kangana raput
    best film bhajrangi bhaijan
    best director bhajrio mastani
    best actor critics irfan khan
    best bebut male kapil sharma
    best debut female harshali malhotra
    best supporting actor anil kapoor
    best supporting actress tabu
    best music dilwale
    best singer male sonu nigam
    best singer female kanika kapoor and shrya ghosal

  11. akshay kumar the living legend back to back hits every years khiladi megastar superstar allrounder king of action comedy akshay kumar the greatest actor of all time bollywood action star very famouse only akshay kumar real stunt real action greatest all time akshay kumar

  12. Why are there 6 nominations for Best Actor, Actress, Film and only 4 for supporting Actor etc. The usual norm is to have 5 nominations.

  13. Best Actor – I dont think Ajay would be nominated – and unlikely Salman would win (given his and Aamir’s ego in accepting awards). RS did a fab job of a difficult character – easily the winner.

    Best Actress – Priyanka is a supporting actress and would win that category easily. Also agree with DP winning for Piku but can’t imagine her getting nominated for BM more likely for Tamasha.

    Film – DLKH is a very mediocre film and cant imagine it’ll be nominated.

    Best Film / Director – difficult choice between Piku, BM and BB – all three have their merits – but most likely for BM (best Film) and BB (best Director – Kabir did well in getting Salman to act properly for once)

  14. Best Debut – Kapil is a joke – should be awarded to those who have potential to deliver a variety of performances not just comedy. Vicky Kaushal can go a long way if mentored by someone like Ranveer Singh is mentored by Aditya Chopra

  15. Good choice for Best Female debut.

    Best Supporting Actor – good choice – I think there should be 5 nominations and Nawazudin easily fits the bill for BB. As mentioned before Priyanka all the way for Supporting Actress (you definitely put her in the wrong category)!

  16. Music – most likely Dilwale – cant believe Dil Dhadakne Do and PRDP isnt chosen and Badlapur and Hero have.

    Agree with singer nominations

  17. Best actor – salman for PRDP. ( his perf shud b noted) amitabh shud b in supporting actor cat.
    Best actress – kangana ranaut. She was fab. ( sonam kapoor shud b included as she was too cute and acted adorably)
    Best film – Bhajranji Bhaijaan without a doubt
    Best director – SLB
    Best supporting actor – Big B
    Best supporting actress – harshali.

  18. I think PRDP music is better than Tamasha but no nomination for Prdp?
    Best Actor Must be Salman Khan coz first time he have done perfect serious acting for BB

  19. Best actor(Male) salman khan for bb .
    Best actor (female ) Deepika and Kangna (both sharing) for Piku and Tanu weds Manu respectively .
    Best Movie BB . Best director for Talwar .

    Best suppoting actor (female) – Pryanka (Bazirao Mastani).
    Best hero MALE (critics)- Nawazudeen – MAANJHI (MOUNTAIN MAN). Best actor (female -critics- Richha Chadda massan

  20. “Tradition has its own concreteness and public opinion,its own flexibility.” As far as me is concerned,I hope Filmfare should be given as-(1)Best Playback Singer Male-ARIJIT SINGH for Hamari Adoori Kahani(Title song),Hamari Adhoori Kahani. (2)Best Playback Singer Female -PALAK MUCHHAL for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo(Title song),Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. (3)Best Music-PRITAM for Bajrangi Bhaijan. (4)Best Lyrics-SAYEED QUADRI for ‘Humnava’,Hamari Adhoori Kahani and AMITABH BHATTACHARYA for ‘Gerua’,Dilwale. (5)Best Film-BAJRANGI BHAIJAN or PIKU. Let’s see what happens in the main event! HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!

    best actor male 2015
    1) salman khan (bb) / 2)ranvir singh (bm)

  25. ‘Varun Dhawan’ must be nominated in the best actor category for ‘Badlapur’…
    ‘Hamari Adhuri kahani’ and Bajirao mastani should be in the best music list…
    ‘Arjit singh’ should win the award for the song ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ instead of ‘Gerua’…
    ‘Kabir Khan’ or ‘Sanjay leela bhansali’ should win the award for best director for the movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Bajirao mastani’…
    ‘Priyanka Chopra’ should be in the list of best supporting actor (female)…
    ‘Sooraj Pancholi’ and ‘Athiya Shetty’ should win the best debut award…
    ‘Kapil Sharma’ – should not win the best debut award…
    ‘Tamasha’ instead of ‘Talvaar’ in best film because Talvar is already in best film (critics)…

  26. Comment: why isn’t there a wise choice for music??? we need to appreciate good compositions. Its sad to see that Music for Bajirao Mastani has been ignored!! its one of the best compositions… it has set the standards of music really high. atleast better than Roy! please make a wise decision for music category! we should not ignore Indian music at its best! revisit the music category awards please! singers and music students like me are quite disappointed.

  27. Best actress should go to Kangana hands down – the best double role in the history of Bollywood. Kalki should also be nominated in this category- her act is the dark horse. DP should be nominated only for Piku, but her work is certainly not worth a win when we have Kalki and Kangana in the fray. It is another matter that Filmfare may be uncomfortable awarding Kangana who spills a lot of Bollywood beans.
    Best actor should go to Irrfan Khan for Talvar or Salman Khan for Bajrangi. Ranveer Singh was not good enough in BM.
    Best supporting actor should go to Amitabh Bachchan.
    Best supporting actress to Tanvi Azmi (for BM), Tabu (for Drishyam) or PC (for BM).

  31. Why no one is mentioning Kangana for TWMR , She performed the double role with perfection and was difficult to do a jatni role and even difficult is the dialect. Why everyone is so obsessed with Deepika. Even I like her but for best acrtess Kangana deserves more than Deepu. I must say ppl are obsessed with good looking girls , I didn’t find Deepu’s acting in Piku to be best actress material.
    Why ppl fall for gori chikni ladki girls? I mean it’s best actress award.

    • And yes Bollywood Arena Team you r giving too much of importance to deepika. Give some credit to Kagana also.thankyou

  32. Bajrangi Bhaijan is the only deserving best movie of the year and the best actor Salman Khan only.If filmfare fail to realize the actor Salman’s efforts to unite these two nations and its people, at the same time a skillful performance so greatly handled deserves more than best actor’s award. Filmfare do not be biased against this great actor.
