    Joker of the Year
    : Himesh Reshammiya

    The hit music director is hell bent on becoming the next Amitabh Bachchan of India. In Satish Kaushik's 'Karzzzz', he tried to give rebirth to Rishi Kapoor's Monty (Subhash Ghai's original of 1978) and ended up 'with blood in his hands'. The Dennis-The-Menace hair weave did not stand in between Himesh and the promise of ultimate hilarity!

    As is his habit, Himesh mistook facial contortions for Method Acting, and nasal acrobatics for singing! The result: The junta went into laugh riots every time he crooned "Nazron mein teri kashish ka aalam...Dil mein hai armanon ki sargam!!"

    However, his musical outing in Kollywood, 'Dasavatharam', was a super hit.

    Statutory Warning: Reshammiya is planning a sequel to 'Aap Kaa Surroor'!

    Hero of the Year
    : Aamir Khan

    The Thinking Khan Launched his nephew in his home production, 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na'. He broke B.O records with 'Ghajini', which reportedly collected Rs. 110 crores in the first week of its release. He answered SRK's six-pack abs with an eight-pack.

    His directorial debut 'Taare Zameen Par' was chosen to be India's official entry to the Oscars. He revealed that he called his dog "SRK" and got a few brickbats coming his way. The only tragedy that Aamir Khan faced in 2008 was "the attack of ants".

    He wrote on his October 16 blog: “Few days ago I had a very bad night. After a long day at work, went to bed at around 3am. Couple hours later, deep in sleep I had this vague feeling of being bitten on my ear. Gradually I was being bitten on my stomach, legs, neck. I was so sleepy that I just kept cursing, scratching, turning and tossing. Finally it got really unbearable, and I kind of woke up…… TO SEE MY BED FILLED WITH ANTS! There were hundreds of them! Crawling all over and giving me hell."

    Heroine of the Year
    : Katrina Kaif

    If you ask Snow White who she would like to be in her next birth, she would most probably say, "Katrina Kaif"!!!Kats had two huge blockbusters ('Race' and 'Singh is Kinng'); she became the most searched Bollywood celebrity on the web. She was crowned the sexiest Asian woman of 2008 by a U.K based magazine. She replaced Aishwarya Rai as the brand ambassador of Nakshatra Diamonds.

    So what if you have a cheek-slapping demon as a Boy friend?

    Take heart!

    No fairy-tale is complete without a villain!!

    Singer of the Year
    : Sukhwinder Singh

    A protégé of A R Rahman, his ticket to Bollywood was "Chaiyyan chaiyyan" from 'Dil Se'. For most of 2008, Sukhi was after 'Star Voice of India'. He signed the year off with a beautifully rendered 'Hole Hole' from RNBDJ. His song "Jai ho" from Danny Boyle's 'Slumdog Millionaire' has been nominated for the Golden Globe awards.

    Sex Icon (Male)
    : John Abraham

    John spent the whole year sleeping like Rip van Winkle. He then decided to take a dip in the Miami seas. What emerged was a Mega Hunk, who made girls (and certain guys) scream "WAAAAVVV". Having impressed the target clientele with that one shot, John is believed to have gone back to the RVW mode!

    Sex Icon (Female)
    : Bipasha Basu

    When John teases the mercury tubes, can Bipasha be far behind? Dressing up in shorts and miniskirts teamed with tube tops and halters, she scorched the screen in the Ranbir Kapoor starrer, 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'.

    Film of the year:
    'A Wednesday'

    'A Wednesday' was about a man (Naseeruddin Shah) who takes up the challenge of protecting a city
    under siege. It's about a common man who gives it back to the terrorists. It is about how people
    react when their surroundings are threatened by extremist forces. Directed by Neeraj Pandey,
    'A Wednesday' almost foretold the 26/11 attack on Mumbai!

    Music director of the year:
    A. R Rahman

    Ever since 'Roja' happened in 1992, every year has been an AR Rahman year. 2008 was no different.
    ARR opened his account in 2008 with 'Jodhaa Akbar'. He followed it up with 'Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane
    Na', 'Ada', 'Yuvvraaj' and 'Ghajini'.

    Flop Master of the year:
    Salman Khan

    "Flops beget slaps" is the new Salman Khan commandment. Four flops in 2008 - 'Yuvvraaj', 'Heroes',
    'Hello' and 'God Tussi Great Ho', and Sallu went wild. He ran into SRK like a bull at Kat’s
    party, and was deftly diverted by Matador Aamir Khan! But Katrina wasn't that lucky. Her cheek,
    they say, went red!
    On the brighter side, Sallu hosted 'Dus Ka Dum' and gave the world a new language- an amalgam of
    Mexican downtown English and Andheri West Hindi! The TRPs soared and then, 'sored'!

    'Idle' mode of the Year:
    Amitabh Bachchan

    Bollywood ka Shahenshah Amitabh Bachchan toured the world with a band and bandana. He gave two
    hits and two flops. He spent most of the year donning monkey caps, and training his gun on the
    media. As soon the Mumbai attack occurred, he took it out again and put it under his pillow!

    Blogger of the year:
    RGV

    Ram Gopal Varma was busy blogging most of the year. Here's one film-maker who is totally resistant
    to his detractors. He Phoonk-ed them with a surprise hit, and went on to announce his future
    projects, with typically queer themes!

    Bolly Trinity of the Year:
    The Khan trio!

    For most of the year, Aamir and Sallu waged shadow wars with SRK. SRK, on his part, indulged in
    his favourite pastime: giving statements such as "I'm the best", "My only competition is Me",
    and "I'm the biggest brand ever". But when Mumbai fell wounded, the Khans came together and
    condemned the 26/11 savagery in the bravest of words!

    I have no particular liking for him, but i think he is attacked so much simply because he has no godfathers. This is not fair. As for talent is concerned, many people are sitting in places where they dont deserve to be just because they were either having godfathers or they were born as celeb kids or they have relatives as celebs or some even with underworld links! But nobody seems to have any issues with that. For example consider the case of salman khan. What acting this guy does actually? Any expression ever comes in his face? Take shahrukh khan! Again can he get any expression on face other than twisting one side of his lips towards his ear? Or if we are saying about nasal twang what about adnan sami? All his voice come through his nose!
