Did Your Favorite Make The Cut For The 17th Lux Style Awards Nominations?

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

Balu Mahi

Chupan Chupai

Na Maloom Afraad

Punjab Nahi Jaungi


Alhamdulillah… Thank you for all your love and support! #PunjabNahiJaungi

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!

Best Actor

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.

Best Actress

AinyJaffri in Balu Mahi

Mahira Khan in Verna

Mehwish Hayat in Punjab Nahi Jaungi

Uzma Hasan in Arth 2

Neelum Muneer in Chupan Chupai

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

Day – 1 on the sets of #rangreza #BTS #21stDec #GoharRasheed as #WaseemWallay

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?
