We found the film Newton so good that we sent it to Oscars as India’s official entry to the Academy awards in category of Best Foreign Film. Naturally this singular honour for the film meant that the film was exceptionally good and best amongst its peers, right?
Some people clearly do not think so! The best film from our country last year NEWTON has not managed to find even a nomination in the major categories at Filmfare Awards this year. Recently a list of all nominations in all categories was released and you will be surprised that this film was not nominated in either of the categories like Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor.
Newton does find a mention in BEst Supporting Actor, Best Editing etc. But all the major caegories seem to be filled up with Toilet Ek Prem Katha, Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, Bareilly ki Barfi, Secret Superstar and Hindi Medium.
What do you think of this snubbing given to Newton?
