IIFA Awards 2008 Nominations

Nominations for the IIFA Awards 2008 has been announced. Interestingly, Aamir Khan’s critically acclaimed and commercially super-successful Taare Zameen Par hasnt received even a single nomination in any category. The Darsheel Safari – Aamir Khan starrer which was expected to sweep awards at the IIFA has been left out because the producer (Aamir Khan) refused to sign on the nomination papers.

So with Taare out of the race, Chak De India is most likely to sweep the awards this year at the IIFA.. Also, Shreya Ghoshal has received four out of five nominations for Best Playback singer (Female).

The IIFA award ceremony will be held in Bangkok this year.

    Thank you vey much.

  • In his point of view Aamir doing the right thing with IIFA, cause IIFA always personalised there award for few people which they proove last year ceremony. I think Amitji, SRK they inspired to doing this mistake again and again which Aamir neglect them or make some controversy with them. But, I wish that Aamir should be more polite or intelectual to his comments or chating with others or we can se he should be more diplomatic. If, IIFA doing the same mistake again and again very soon it will be a worthless ceremony.


  • hey i know srk win he is the best and imtiaz ali shd get the best story award n sunidhi for singer n deepika as actress i want kareena asl


  • Hey can I please know how to get the tickets for the iifa awards. Can u please let me know how is it possible for me to get tiickets to go. Ive been asking everwhere but they dont have an answer. So please cause its held in Bangkok and I really wanna go… thanks!

  • Aamir Khan…. get out of your ego… amitabh and SRK may be egoistic but they are realistic unlike you…

    join the stream of indian cineama platform… but neglecting it you are doing more harm to yourself than to the indian industry… in few years.. your performance and charm for public will come down if you live in isolation …. so my sincere advice slowly take out the vielll….



  • BEST ACTOR – Shahid Kapoor
    BEST ACTRESS – Kareena Kapoor
    BEST FILM – Chak de India
    BEST DIRECTOR – Imtiaz Ali
    BEST SINGERS – Shan and Sherya Ghoasl
    BEST MUSIC – Sawarriya


  • What the hell is this? the dumbest list of Nominees I’ve seen…

    Whatever happened to the heart warming Taare Zameen par? Why doesn’t it have even a single nomination?
    Darsheel Safary, Aamir Khan, Tisca Chopra… all have to be on the list…

    And also Sarika deserves to be there on the list for Parzania…

    The Suckiest nomination list in history of IIFA


  • Hi, As I see all Nominations but maxmum stories is base less One or two flim have some base lile Gandhi My Father but it very few india movie try to do experiment . It is my sugession some experimently or sic-fic movie show includede. Not a sing nomination for Other dept mainly Camerra, Light, SFX cretor Graphics , Editor they shoul me listed at the same time. Along with Actor or Actress or Singer, Direcort so on above people should get same respect.


  • I think thats not reason that Amir khan didn’t sign nomination paper may be SRKh and Amitab don’t want to take Amir khan they both not like him because He is real hero, real king of bolywood and as we know that Amitab is brand Ambester of Iffa.
    thats the reason why Tare Zamin Par wasn’t nominate.
