Ceremony Information[edit]


1st Hum Awards took place on 12 March 2013, but telecasted after 1 month and 16 days on 28 April 2013, due to hum decision and channel resources.

Voting Trend and Summary[edit]

Voting system of 1st Hum awards was very different, 7 out of 32 categories were set to open for public to cast votes to their favorite one. 2 categories from Fashion, 1 category from Music and 3 categories from Television were open publicly on channels official website for votes, rest of the awards were given by jury and drama critics.


Ceremony received criticism on cultural grounds, most of the viewers were disappointed as third fourth of the ceremony was totally based on Indian culture, artist performed mostly on Indian songs, rather than at Pakistani songs. Moreover the ceremony host face criticism for their lacking jokes and uphill entertainment.

Rating and Reception[edit]

When hum awards just announced to be launched soon though when, people were so eager to watch first of its kind awards in Pakistan. Since Pakistan had been irregular in appreciating its artists, the award ceremonies are the source of motivation and acknowledgment of its artists work. When Hum awards were gone onair it receives critical acclaimed by both viewers and by critics in Pakistan, as it is first of its kind awards, ever held by in Pakistan media industry. Audience response towards nominations were quite negative and disappointing, for nominations it received most critical reception as compare to others/ Ceremony garnered a huge reception by viewers from Pakistan specially from Punjab and Sindh.


Humsafar Nominations[edit]

The biggest controversy was that the Pakistani first ever internationally acclaimed serial Humsafar didn't nominated for any category except a solo nominee which was set open to audience to choose, and ultimately won. The reason for it was given that it will be unfair for others nominees to nominate Humsafar, though it is hugely popular and have cult following. It was only nominated for viewer's choice nomination in "Best Onscreen Couple". Criticism enlighten that Roshan Sitara and Mere Qatil Mere Dildar there and the most popular and well known drama serial Hamsafar, Durr-e-Shehwar or Bilqees Kaur were not nominated in more than one category. In critics view perhaps Humsafar may have been critiqued for its cliche story line and the stereotyped characters but due to its extravagant popularity it was ignored by jury. Hamsafar was not only well known in Pakistan but also in other nations where individuals observe Pakistani dramas. Bilquess Kaur was another play that deserved to be nominated much more than a drama by audience views and drama like Roshan Sitara in particular that was a complete flop and the storyline totally went haywire. [11][12][13]

Ali Gul Pir nomination[edit]

Comedian turned singer Ali gul, was nominated for its famous song "Wadere Ka Beta" in Hum Music category of "Best New Comer in Music" but, cancelled his nomination without knowing him by hum management team. Hum Management head Shahnaz Rizi explained "It was the decision of the management — some of the awards were not given and these particular awards include Excellence in Fashion, Excellence in TV, Best Band and Best New Sensation in Music" without telling any reason for omission.[14][15][16]
