Amidst all the jazz of the Oscars 2016 and Leonardo DiCaprio
finally winning an Oscar, netizens are also widely discussing, 'why
Indian awards are not equivalent to Oscars, though many claim
to be so'.
No doubt, we have many popular awards shows like Filmfare, IIFA,
SIIMA, CineMAA, etc, down here in south. But, their credibility
often draws flak, since their choice of winners lacks
On that note, a few comments on the social networking sites are
going viral, kick-starting a debate, if Indian awards are any
credible. While a few netizens pointed it out that our awards
largely focus on creating content for satellite, their opinions
were hugely concurred.
"Why Telugu award shows aren't live?. Because our guys are more
interested in selling TV & Commercial Rights adding
Performances & Brands.", read an observation.
Another troll account reasoned the failure of Indian awards with
a tinge of humor. "Bollywood Awards are never live telecast
because they have to edit and show Rekha's reaction when Amitabh
comes on stage."
Though the debate was in forefront, many times before, it never
gets old. Especially, when the award season is around. However, it
is not subjected to one award show in particular, but all that we
have in India, right now. Hope somebody notices the growing
suspicion and come up with something great.
Nevertheless, the academy awards are also bashed by some, and it
is no exception when it comes to drawing criticism.
