In the best director section come Anurag Kashyap ("Gangs Of Wasseypur"), Gauri Shinde ("English Vinglish"), Shoojit Sircar ("Vicky Donor") and Sujoy Ghosh ("Kahaani") along with Basu ("Barfi!").

For the best film trophy, the nominations are: "Barfi!", "English Vinglish", "Gangs Of Wasseypur", "Kahaani" and "Vicky Donor".

Crime thriller "Gangs of Wasseypur" has clinched a total of six nominations, Karan Johar's action-packed "Agneepath" remake has five nods, and "Vicky Donor", about sperm donation, has secured four.

"English Vinglish", "Kahaani" and "Talaash" have been nominated across three categories each.

A Monday night party here to announce the nominations was attended by Priyanka, Deepika, Anushka Sharma, Imran Khan, Sridevi, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Huma Qureshi.
