There have been a number of occasions when Bollywood celebrities have pointed out that the award shows of their film industry are pointless and fake. Shah Rukh Khan, Kanagana Ranaut, Rishi Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Irrfan Khan are some prominent names who have shared their opinion in the matter. And they have, on more than one occasions, been proved right by the award shows. People haven’t still forgotten that Zee Cine Awards gave the best actress award to Deepika over Kangana the year ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Queen’ had released.
Zee Cine Awards has done it yet again. It has given the award for the best film to ‘Golmaal Again’. While this would have been a surprise for the ‘Golmaal Again’ team, it was no less than a shock for people. What was even more shocking was that ‘Newton’, India’s official entry into the Oscars, wasn’t even nominated in the best film category.
There were a number of other awards that people thought were given to non-deserving as there were better performances and performers that could be awarded. For instance, Varun Dhawan was declared as the best actor for ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and Anil Kapoor was awarded in best supporting role male category for film ‘Mubarkan’.
While Rajkummar Rao had to be contented with extraordinary impact actor male award, an exceptional film like ‘Baahubali’ was declared as extraordinary franchise. The improper decision of the jury in awarding the honors had twitterati fuming and voicing their opinions.
People even went berserk over the bizarre categories Zee had at their award show, for instance, legend extraordinary award that was given to Amitabh Bachchan.
Below are some interesting Twitter reactions over the blunder by Zee Cine Awards:

Zee cine awards giving best actor to Varun and actress to Alia only proves Kangana right all the more..I lost faith in them the moment they awarded Deepika over Kangana the year she delivered Queen..#fakeawards

Zee Cine Golmaal awards would be the apt name. Awards have become a joke now in our country.

Golmaal Again winning best film is an abomination of the highest order. It’s also what y’all deserve for making it a blockbuster. Choke! pic.twitter.com/mzLAzpBT10
