Did Your Favorite Make The Cut For The 17th Lux Style Awards Nomination, So Pakistan’s most prestigious award show has decided to be back earlier this year. Yep, you guessed it right. We’re talking about none other than the oldest and most revered Lux Style Awards which will be held by the end of February in Lahore.
The list of nominations was revealed earlier today and by the looks of it, the LSA selections this year too has given us some serious WTF moments! Take a look yourself and see if you think we’re right.
Did Your Favorite Make The Cut For The 17th Lux Style Awards Nominations
Let’s begin from the category of films;
Nominations for Best Film this year include
Na Maloom Afraad
Punjab Nahi Jaungi
And very easily you find Mehrunisa V Lub U and Chalay Thay Saath missing the cut here? Mehrunisa did a great job on box office this year and it certainly deserved a mention in the list of best films. No hard feelings but the film were certainly a better option than Balu Mahi perhaps? And even though our favorite Punjab Nahi Jaungi gets listed here, we’re wondering why we couldn’t have MVLU mentioned here!
Ahsan Khan in Chupan Chupai
Fahad Mustafa in Na Maloom Afraad 2
Humayun Saeed in Punjab Nahi Jaungi
Mohsin Abbas in Na Maloom Afraad 2
Osman Khalid Butt in Balu Mahi
Pretty much the best have been listed here but then again, nothing personal against OKB but perhaps Shaan’s stint in Arth deserved a mention here because let’s accept, it was better than Osman’s bronzed look in Balu Mahi. And what about Danish Taimoor in MVLU? The guy certainly did his part best! However, this one’s going to be a rather tough battle between Humayun Saeed in PNJ, Mohsin Abbas in NMA 2 and Fahad Mustafa for the same. We’re guessing Humayun just might take the lead away because let’s accept, PNJ was one amazing movie.
AinyJaffri in Balu Mahi
Mahira Khan in Verna
Mehwish Hayat in Punjab Nahi Jaungi
Uzma Hasan in Arth 2
Neelum Muneer in Chupan Chupai
PART 2 And here is the first look of my favourite song from Balu Mahi called Bechainiyan! How beautiful is our country?? Every single shot is from the North of Pakistan near Hunza, Pasu, and the Nanga Parbat Base camp, no green screen was used. I lip synced to a song for the first time in my life, channelling my days of dancing to Pehla Nasha, practicing the famous footpath lift off. All that childhood preparation sure paid off hahaha ❤❤❤
Again, no mention of Sana Javed here? Sana did her part as the doe-eyed confused beauty from up North, in the hassles of Karachi beautifully!
Best Film Director
Haisaam Hussain for Balu Mahi
Mohsin Ali for Chupan Chupai
Nabeel Qureshi for Na Maloom Afraad 2
Nadeem Baig for Punjab Nahi Jaungi
Shoaib Mansoor for Verna
Best Supporting Actor
Ali Rizvi in Chupan Chupai
Faizan Khawaja in Chupan Chupai
Sohail Ahmed in Punjab Nahi Jaungi
Javed Sheikh in Na MaloomAfrad 2
Gohar Rasheed in Rangreza
Saqib Sameer should have been mentioned here for his double role in MVLU! Nevertheless this award is Waseem Wallay’s for sure. Nobody, the audience or the critic, can turn a blind eye to Gohar’s stint in this one!
There’s going to be tough competition for the winner of this one. Urwa’s performance in PNJ was commendable as was Humaima’s in Arth 2.
Coming onto the television categories;
Best TV Actor
Adnan Siddiqui in Sammi
Ahad Raza Mir in Yakeen ka Safar
Imran Abbas in Khuda Aur Mohabbat 2
Mohin Abbas in Muqabil
Noman Ijaz in Pinjari
Best TV Actress
Bushra Ansari in Seeta Bagri
Kubra Khan in Muqabil
Saba Qamar in Baaghi
Sajal Aly in YakeenKa Safar
Sajal Aly in O Rungreza
Even though our favorites have made it to major categories but what we would have loved was for LSA to have fair nominations. Snubbing MVLU, Chalay Thay Saath in the Filmcategory and a load of dramas from channels other than HUM for Television, this isn’t done guys. Let’s see how the fashion and music categories fare this time? Let us know what you think of these nominations? Do you give a thumbs up or a thumbs down?
