LSA 2015: The Awards

Na Maloom Afraad predictably dominated the Film category with the only non NMA award going to Saleha Aref for her role in Dukhtar. The music category was a mixed bag, with popular acts picking up the trophy.

 

 

Cheeky! Hamza Ali Abbasi, who openly opposes the objectification of women, was asked to present the prize for Best Model (female). Surely that merits a status update!

It was reassuring to see two female vocalists – Zoe Viccaji and Sara Haider – on the list of winners. Fashion delivered very ‘Karachi-centric’ results with all trophies staying in the city. Brand Sana Safinaz emerged biggest winners as they picked up three trophies, and Nabila won her 9th LSA for Hair and Makeup. Last but not the least, TV Awards were swept clean by Pyare Afzal, spearheaded by the handsome albeit controversial Hamza Ali Abbasi, who actually let off a very positive vibe all evening.

Winning streak: Aamna Ilyas picked up the award for Best Model (female) leaving at least two of her fellow nominees in tears. While her win was welcome, what made it more valuable was her acceptance speech and support for all dark-skinned girls.
