The 66th National Film Awards have finally been announced. Every year, the winners of the awards are announced in April and the awards ceremony is held on May 3, which is when India’s first feature film is said to have released in 1913. This year, however, the awards were delayed due to the Lok Sabha elections.

Now, the jury has completed its deliberations and their final recommendations have been submitted, broadcasting minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters. “They made a lot of efforts for the last two months… I am very sure that they would have picked the best films, the best directors….
