There were no nominations. Film critics were free to decide their choice what makes this award more unique is the fact that this is the first award in Bollywood where the winners and runners up both will be awarded. The concept is very clear. When the awards are not being given on the basis of who performs in the show or who comes to take the awards and instead given on the basis of a genuine open ballot jury, irrespective of who comes to collect the awards, they generate a huge credibility. Movie making is a very lengthy process, which requires months of hard work if not years. When the awards are genuine then missing out on the award by a whisker makes you as much of a winner.
We are happy to share the result of the 2018 edition of Power Brands - BFJA and its honoured Jury Members.
