The 57th Filmfare Awards were held on 29 January 2012 at Film City, Mumbai honoring the best film of 2011 from the Hindi-language film industry (commonly known as Bollywood). The ceremony was jointly hosted by Shahrukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor. Incidentally, both of them have hosted the award ceremonies previously but with different co-hosts (Khan with Saif Ali Khan, Kapoor with Imran Khan), hence making it the first time for this pair to host the show.

The nominations for the awards were announced on 11 January 2012.[1] Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was the most nominated, receiving 13 nominations. It was followed by Rockstar with nine nominations, and Delhi Belly with seven nominations. Consequently, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara won seven awards, becoming the leading award winner for films in 2011. The 2012 awards thus equaled 2011 (Udaan) for the maximum number of awards won by a single film, and this also marked the largest award tally for a single film since 2007 (Omkara). 2012 also marked the first time after 2010 (3 Idiots) that the film with the most nominations also won the most awards. The 57th Filmfare awards were televised on 19 February 2012 to the public.

Ranbir Kapoor won his first Filmfare Best Actor Award and second Filmfare Best Actor(Critics) Award for his role of Janardhan/Jordan in Rockstar, while Vidya Balan won her fourth Filmfare Award and second Filmfare Best Actress Award for her portrayal of Silk/Reshma in The Dirty Picture.
