I declared the nominees yesterday. Since, it was a very very close competition for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Lootera and Phata Poster Nilka Hero. Many of the responses have been noted but on deep analysis I declared the winners.
I have tried my best to let the best win in each category. Some of your favorites could not have won but the results are not at all biased in any way. There’s no soft corner of any composer or lyricist or singer. All the nominees were equally great and they all deserved to win. I hope you all like the results.
