Filmfare Awards 2009 – A ‘Calculated’ Prediction on Bollywood Awards 2008
In the months to come by, we will bear witness to the various kinds of Bollywood awards, Filmfare Awards, Screen Award, Zee Cine Awards, Sansui Awards, Stardust award, IIFA Awards..The most prestigious and well attended of the lot is the Filmfare Award(though it had a dismal attendance last year). Filmfare Awards are also generous of the lot, if they cannot fit an actor in their list, they make a special category for him/her with flashy names like ‘special award’ ‘ outstanding performer’ etc. Last year, in 2007, we had Shahrukh Khan facing the heat from the child prodigy Darsheel Safary.
This time in 2008 Bollywood awards, SRK’s fantastic act in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has intense competition from his favorite rivals: Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan. Hold on to your seats, get the popcorn out, and go through Filmfare Awards 2009. Though it is a tad early, here is a calculated prediction on the Filmfare Award 2009 and many other awards that will precede or follow it. You are free to argue on our choice of Filmfare Awards and other Bollywood awards.

Best Director: Abbas Tyrewala (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na) His first shot at direction is well rewarded)
Best Actor: Aamir Khan (Ghajini) Aamir has believably given his best performance ever.
Best Actress: Priyanka Chopra (Fashion) Priyanka Chopra is so inconsistent, some time she can give the worst performance and sometimes she can knock you out with her histrionics. In Fashion, Priyanka was amazing.
