Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal and Keerthy Suresh are National Awards 2019

The National Awards 2019 have just been announced! The list is quite a surprising one, but it’s a mixture of good cinema from all over India. Some of the films here were also part of the Best Films in their specific language last year and were also voted as per of the polls we had here in December 2018.

The Best Actress is definitely well-deserved, but Ayushmann for best actor? Was there no better performance? And Vicky too, was there no one else in any other cinema that deserved it? How sweet of them to notice Surekha Sikri’s performance for ‘Badhaai Ho’?!


How can they give it to Ayushmann and not to Tabu? Well, at least it’s not as bad when Saif won for ‘Hum Tum’ or when Akshay won for ‘Rustom’.

You know, there was a time when the National Awards were announced and most people had no idea who the winners or films were. They were considered a big deal as only artsy or really good films were chosen. NA gave a platform to these lesser-known films and actors. But over the past few years, NA has had almost the same winners as the popular awards.



Anyways, watch as KJo will now pounce on these winners and try to corrupt them!

Here are the winners of India’s National Awards 2019. Congratulations to all of them.

    I will definitely watch the movie now because I didn’t before. Admin I don’t think the site is working, I am on a new computer in Incognito mode and even then it only shows blinds up to Aug 7 or so (fluctuates but usually does not update to recent) and then when you click in or if you go on mobile suddenly you see that actually you have until Aug 17th! It’s really hard to know when is it you or when is it the site acting up because I always check and clear cache cookies using editthiscookie and it still is so variable. Also I don’t know if wordpress subscriptions are working I have seen new comments on some of the old posts but never received email even after subscribing to notifications and confirming. Yes I’m a geek and love to get notifications on my fav bollywood gossip sites πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Admin says:

      Thanks for letting us know, Rekha. Guess the problem started in July when the host updated the site. We’ll try to work it out. Do keep us updated if you are facing the same problem. Also, do note if the start of the link is “http” because it should be “https”. πŸ™

    Article 15, now dream girl – He seems new age SRK to me.
    No filmy connection – SELF MADE through hard work and choice, much a family man and but slowly and steadily creating making impact.

    hope he never find a PC to rock the boat – but then his wife doesnt seem the kind who will go cokehead!

    after ages there is respect for a mainstream actor

  3. Nancy says:

    I loved Ayushmann in Andhadhun. I thought he was the perfect character to play a grey shade.

  4. dsang says:

    @Admin hey admin, can we get a scoop/story on Virat and Rohit spat? what role anushka has to play in that?

  5. Sara says:

    I don’t know about Vicky because I haven’t seen Uri but I think Ayushmann deserved NA for Andhadhoon. He was really good in the movie and it was one of the best performances of the year. And also congratulations to Keerthy Suresh for winning best actress award. Mahanati is one of few south movies I have watched this year and it was a very good movie. I didn’t even know who was that actress the movie based on but I really loved it.

  6. Ron says:

    @Admin .. So if not Ayushman then who? Ran veer singh? I think you are a bit biased towards DP and Ranveer

    • Rad says:

      @Ron – If not Ayushman, why should it necessarily be Ranveer Singh or any other bw actor? This is not bollywood awards. As strong as Ayushman’s performance was, it didn’t seem worthy of a Nat’l award.

      • nefarious says:

        i agree. i wasnt exactly blown away by his performance, although it was good.
        I havent seen Uri, but i can see that it panders to nationalism etc, hence, the award.

        I suspect KR must be disappointed for not being considered this year πŸ˜›

        • Rad says:

          Yes the selectors seem to be confusing patriotic and off beat with good performance. Both of them were good but then they are good actors. They will always be good. But was it stand out performances? I think not.

    • Manisha says:

      @admin have you watched Andhudhan?? Everyone who watched it (including people who barely even watch Bollywood) loved it and that too of AK’s performance. Who else can play “blind” and “fake blind” as well as he did?

      • Admin says:

        Of course! It had a great script. And, Tabu was outstanding. When the story is good, direction is well-executed, actors get to perform to the best of their abilities. But it wasn’t that much as “OMG, what an amazing film!”. The same director had ‘Ek Hasina Thi’ with Urmila and Saif, which was amazing because it was kinda new at that time to have such a mainstream actress play that character with a commercial actor playing the selfish bad guy. So compared to EHT, Andhadhun was normal.

        • Manisha says:

          But why compare movies? To truly be critical of a movie, I believe you have to look at it standing on its own – not by comparing it to other movies. In that case, there will always be this was better than that than him/her. I have seen EHT years ago and was amazed by the performances and the story but that shouldn’t take away from Andhadhun’s own story or performances imho.

          • Rad says:

            I guess Admin compared because even though this is a great movie, the same director himself has made something better. Also for national award this movie would have been compared with so many movies this year from all over India and its a bit difficult to believe there was nothing better. National awards have kinda become mainstream. Like for the main categories at least someone is pushing bollywood movies and actors.

          • Admin says:

            It’s like dΓ©jΓ -vu so there was nothing surprising about it.
