The Oscars 2017 will be an event that no one will forget any time soon, at least those who have watched the entire show. Two minutes of silence for those souls who switched off their television sets or their internet connection after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, the original Bonnie and Clyde stars, announced that it was La La Land which won the Best Picture award. Celebrations rose among the La La Land team, and I was about to switch off my Hotstar app. However I thought may be there will be some conclusion to that funny banter going on between the host Jimmy Kimmel and his longtime ‘rival’ Matt Damon (the announcer greeting Ben Affleck and a ‘guest’ still cracks me up).

So I stayed on, and witnessed the most awkward moment in the history of Oscars. As the entire La La Land team came on stage to celebrate the win, and the producers were giving speeches when someone from the Academy Award team came up on stage in midst of one of the speeches, and there was some confusion going on. And then this happened…

Apparently, someone gave Warren Beatty the wrong winner’s card (he was given Emma Stone’s Best Actress win card), and even he was confused when he announced La La Land as the Best Picture. Anyways, Moonlight is this year’s Academy Award winner for the Best Picture, while La La Land has to be contend with Best Director, Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Song, Best Score etc. Win win for everyone, I guess. If Oscars had something like a Critics Choice award, I do have a feeling that the teams of both the movies would have gone happy…

Now I saw on Twitter that some Bollywood celebs were glad that such goofups do not happen in our award ceremonies. Well, they seem to have forgotten that our award ceremonies are not even live, and any goofups like these will surely be edited out. There is also the case the most of the nominees know who is going to win the award, so there’s that. But if something like this happened during our award ceremonies, let’s say the recently concluded Filmfare Award 2017, for these particular categories, here’s how we expect the potential winners and losers would react…

When Akshay Kumar find himself to be nominated for the Best Actor…

Despite a terrific performance in Airlift, Akshay Kumar finds himself to be ignored by the Filmfare jury, leading to his fans trolling the awards on Twitter. But if later, Akshay finds out he was overlooked, and his name was certainly there in the list…

If Sonam Kapoor got the Best Actress award over Alia Bhatt…

Sonam Kapoor had delivered her finest performance in Neerja. Unfortunately for her, it was also the year when Alia Bhatt delivered not one but two incredible performances in Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi. So Alia took on the popular awards, while Sonam had to contend herself with Critics Choice award (our version of consolation prize). So what would happen if Sonam realise it was supposed to be her name instead of Alia’s? Here’s how we would expect her to react…

As for Alia’s…

Harshvardhan Kapoor for the Best debutant award

Harshvardhan Kapoor had been quite vocal on losing the Best Debutant award to Diljit Dosanjh, as he felt Diljit was no newcomer since he had acted in  several Punjabi films before. But if the award ceremony did make a goof up about the names, and Harshvardhan’s name was announced later as the winner, we actually expect him to act quite cool about it…

As for Diljith, he would have taken the reversed decision humbly….

Fawad Khan as Best Supporting Actor instead of Rishi Kapoor

Poor Fawad Khan! If it was not for the #BanPakistaniartistes trending all over in India following Uri Attacks, he would have surely got away with most of the awards for his performance in Kapoor & Sons. But imagine if the award ceremony did have the guts to give him the award, here’s how he would have reacted…

As for his senior co-star in the same movie, who finally got the award, we are sure Rishiji won’t be too happy about this.

Ranbir Kapoor or Shahid Kapoor instead on Aamir Khan

Don’t get me wrong! Aamir Khan absolutely deserves all the accolades for his performance in Dangal. It’s just that he sees Indian award ceremonies not worth his time, so why indulge him then? Instead, what if the goofup rectified this and gave the award to either Ranbir Kapoor (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil), who would have gracefully reacted to this…

Or for the matter, Shahid Kapoor for Udta Punjab, who would have reacted like this…

As for Aamir Khan, we perfectly imagine what his reaction would be….
