Started in 2017, Power Brands Bollywood Film Journalists Awards are now dubbed as the only HONEST AWARDS in the country because:
The Films and stars get awarded by those who master— the film critics. Growing from strength to strength, while the first edition in 2017 had 17 Film Journalists giving their votes, the 2022 edition has more than 25 of the leading film journalists of this country do an OPEN BALLOT VOTING for all categories and disclose whom they voted for online TWO WEEKS before the award ceremony. Each years results and who voted for whom is visible for everyone to see and results are there for everyone to tabulate themselves— making PB- BFJA the most TRANSPARENT awards ever.
Awards are given irrespective of the winners presence as they are declared a fortnight in advance at least.
There are no nominations and journalists are free to give any one their vote amongst the films released last year.
Basically it's the only credible awards in the country and for the same it has garnered huge appreciation, though still only in its 6th year.
