The annual slapfest of 2018 is here to laud the worst that we have got from Bollywood in the past year. After praising the best of 2108, Radio City, India’s leading radio network’s digital arm, will present the most awaited award of the year, the Slappies 8.
One of the only platforms to crown the famously infamous talent in the industry has enjoyed seven successful years until now. They garnered 5.6 lakh votes last year, and this time it aims to get bigger, better and louder.
Slappies 2018 will be executed in two phases — the voting phase, followed by a grand finale award announcement. Listeners can vote for the most deserving ‘slaps’ of the year from 16 January to 4 February 2019. There will be top eight shortlisted entries across 11 categories. The grand finale of the event will be held on 8 February 2019, Friday, on RadioCity.
Commenting on the initiative, Rachna Kanwar, Chief Operating Officer – Digital Media, Jagran Prakashan Ltd, said, “Over the past 7 years now, we’ve been able to build Slappies into a delightful, differentiated audience engagement property. And not just audiences, who have given us a tremendous response, we have also got a whole lot of awards for it! Now in its 8th season, we’re certain Slappies will be bigger, better and even more fun.”
In 2018, the categories for Slappies 8 are – Worst Film, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Song, Worst Debut, Worst Director, Worst Dialogue, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Jodi, and Lifetime Achievement for Worst Song. Owing to the trend of remaking old songs, an 11th category called the ‘Worst Song Remake’ has also been added as a fresh category.
