Film Critic Consensus: It is disappointing Sridevi didn't pick up awards

Film critic and trade analyst Joginder Tuteja answers questions posed by readers and a question that many of us Sridevi fans have was posed - and answered.

Q. I don’t understand why Sridevi has not won any major awards this year. ‘English Vinglish’ is the best comeback for an actress and Sridevi is respected in a big way by the industry people. Needless to say, her performance in ‘English Vinglish’ was mesmerizing. – Neerav

A. Yes, it is highly disappointing that Sridevi didn’t win a major award. Leaving aside the comeback factor, she was pretty much in the contention even if she would have been acting on a more regular basis. In fact she and Vidya Balan (Kahaani) were the most deserving of the lot and awards should ideally have been divided between the two. However with good deal of commercialisation involved in the awards function and the fact that other actresses in the running would stay on to be popular for years to come as well, organisers are left with no choice but to do a check and balance to think about future events as well where the same set would have to be occupying the stage again. An unavoidable situation where everyone is in a Catch-22 situation.
