The Review Committee of the LUX Style Awards 2016 met to take a second look at the film nominations.

The Jury discussed all outstanding issues and unanimously agreed to move Ahmad Ali Butt’s nomination from Best Actor to Best Supporting Actor for his role in Jawani Phir Nahin Aani. This action has been taken after Ahmad Ali Butt had sent a request to the LSA jury and requested them to move his nomination.

Proud to be nominated for "best actor" along side @saeedhumayun and others. Thanks #LSA2016

Interestingly, another vj turned actor Ali Safina had also expressed dissatisfaction over his nomination in Best Support Actor category but seems like it has gone unheard as there is no mention about his concern in official press release.

Following Butt’s footsteps, Ali Safina, also expressed his discomfort, over his nomination in the ‘Best Supporting Actor’ category, on social media. He believed his role in Jalaibee was that of the male lead along with Danish Taimoor. However, the revised nominations do not mention his name in his preferred category.

The Review Committee decided that as the earlier process was by ballot voting, some adjustments had to be made to the announced nominations. As a result of the move Danish Taimoor climbed into the top five for his performance as the lead role for Wrong Number. The Best Supporting Actor category, this year, will include six nominations

For future consideration of film categories for LUX Style Awards, all Production Houses have to submit in their screener-film copies for all Jury members. The Copies should be supported by Film entrees for categories so as to avoid the placement of nominees in erroneous categories.

The revised categories, in alphabetical order, now read as follows:

Best Film Actor

Adnan Sarwar for Shah

Danish Taimoor for Wrong Number

Hameed Sheikh for Moor

Humayun Saeed for Jawani Phir Nahin Aani

Sarmad Sultan Khoosat for Manto


Best Film Supporting Actor

Ahmed Ali Butt for Jawani Phir Nahin Aani

Ali Safina for Jalaibee

Javed Sheikh for Wrong Number

Shaz Khan for Moor

Wasay Chaudhry for Jawani Phir Nahin Aani

Yasir Hussain for Karachi sey Lahore
