National Award for MOM, Dadasaheb Phalke for Vinod!

65th National Film Awards: 'Hebbettu Ramakka' named Best Kannada film 65th National Awards: Sridevi wins for 'Mom', regional cinema scores big

Malayali actress Parvathy, who won the best actress award in the International Film Festival of India, Goa previous year for her performance in Take Off, is believed to be a top contender for the award for Best Actress. "But every time, we came back to Sridevi", he said, implying that she won the award purely for her performance.The jury was headed by him.

Lakshwadweep to Ladakh, the 65th National Film Award winners' list encompassed cinematic gems from the length and breadth of India, with an Assamese film Village Rockstars walking away with the Best Feature Film title after almost three decades. But the last 10 days of watching Indian cinema, specially the regional films, has stunned me. The film also won the Best Make-up award and a Special Jury award.

Filmmaker and jury member Shekhar Kapur also told the media that late actress Sridevi wasn't chosen for the honour because of his relationship with her but due to her contribution to "Mom". "These (regional films) are rooted", the director said while announcing the name of the winners.

"My last film in India was "Bandit Queen". But I am saddened that she got the award when she is not here today".

Ryanair earned the unfortunate distinction of reporting the largest gender pay gap in the entire airline industry, at 72pc. Press Gazette made the decision not to include the publisher in its round-up of pay gap figures because of its small size.

'Blood, sweat, tears and five years of hard work have brought us here. "She was always a perfectionist and it showed in all the 300 plus films she did". Mani sir's (Ratnam, who directed Kaatru) films are always special.

"I just heard about it". The real tragedy was that when her co-stars in most of these films were hailed as box-office czars (Jeetendra, Rajnikanth, Anil Kapoor), or revered as great artists (Kamal Haasan) or both, she was mostly bequeathed with sobriquets such as "Thunder Thighs". "I didn't even know that films were made in Lakshwadeep". "I want to expand the reach of film-making through online platforms".

The National award for best actor has gone to Riddhi Sen for his stunning performance as a transgender in Kaushil Ganguly's Nagarkirtan. As a boy from a village in Bihar, I had big dreams and it feels like they have been fulfilled today. There was a lot of resistance from people when we were making that film and then it came out in three languages.
