Interesting array of nominations

This year's nominations of Anandalok Purashkar- the father of all film awards in this part of the globe are, honestly speaking, unintentionally funny. Here is why so.

1. Autograph has got a Best Actor nomination (Prosenjit) and one in Best Music Director (Debajyoti Mishra), but it hasn't been nominated in Best Film or Srijit Mukherjee (Director of Autograph) as Best Director!! And what are the deserving nominations in these two categories- Best Film and Best Director? Well, Le Chhakka, Byomkesh Bakshi, and ...hold your breath....Wanted and Josh in Best Film and Raj Chakraborty (Le Chhakka), Ravi Kinnagi (for Wanted, but not Josh), Anjan Dutt (Byomkesh Bakshi) and Rajib Kumar (Amanush) in Best Film. Wow!

2. Dui Prithibi has not got a single nomination, despite having been released on the same day as Autograph!

3. Indraneil Sengupta was overlooked in the Best Actor nomination, despite his sterling performance in Autograph. The nominees are Prosenjit (Autograph), Jeet (Wanted), Dev (Le Chhakka), Soham (Prem Amaar) and Abir Chatterjee (Byomkesh Bakshi). Has he been nominated in Best Supporting Actor instead?
