The Star Screen Awards, is an annual awards ceremony held in India honouring professional excellence in the Bollywood Film Industry. The nomination and award selection is done by a panel of distinguished professionals from the industry. It was originally called the Screen Awards.[1][2]


The Screen Awards, initiated by the chairman of The Express Group, Mr. Viveck Goenka in 1994, is focused on excellence in films in India. The awards attempt to position themselves as India's first awards that are given by the film fraternity to the film fraternity by way of a jury, as opposed to the other "popular" awards. The awards are also the first to be conducted every year. [3]

The Awards for Hindi and Marathi films, TV and non-film music are presented annually in January each year. Several editions of the awards such as the "Screen Weekly Awards", "Screen Videocon Awards", "Star Screen Awards", "Colors Screen Awards" and "Life OK Screen Awards" have thus far been presented. Until 2001, the awards were sponsored by Videocon International and hence known as the Screen Videocon Awards.[4] For the regional cinema of South India, Screen has held three editions of the "Screen Awards for excellence in South Indian Cinema". The awards were presented for Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada cinema.

The ceremony has involved the Executive Director and the Governor of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.[1]

The 23rd Star Screen Awards was held on 4 December 2016 and broadcast on Star Plus on 31 December 2016. The event was created and designed by Anil Jha and produced and executed by Mohomed Morani and Cineyug Group of Companies.

Editor of Screen, Priyanka Sinha Jha is in-charge of the curating and instituting the Jury for the awards selection procedure, and also for organizing and overseeing the functioning of the awards process for the annual Star Screen Awards (considered the most fair-minded and credible film awards, headed by an impartial film-industry jury)
