The Screen Awards was an annual awards ceremony held in India, honouring professional excellence in Bollywood. The nomination and award selection was done by a panel of distinguished professionals from the industry. The awards were introduced by Screen magazine of the Indian Express Group in 1995. The magazine was acquired by Star India in 2015 and subsequently closed down.[1] Star India continues to sponsor the event under the Star Screen Awards title.

The name of each year's ceremony was determined by the presenting network: the first "Star Screen Awards" were telecast on Star Plus from 2000 until 2011, after which the "Colors Screen Awards" were broadcast on Colors and the "Life OK Screen Awards" on Life OK, each for a period of two years. As of 2019, Star continues to hold the television distribution rights to the event.[2]


The Screen Awards, initiated by the chairman of the Express Group, Viveck Goenka, in 1994, focused on excellence in Indian films. The prizes were awarded by film industry insiders, as opposed to other award ceremonies, where winners are determined by juries. The Screen Awards were the first to be conducted annually.[3]

Until 2001, the awards were sponsored by Videocon International and hence known as the Screen Videocon Awards.[4] For regional film industries of South India, Screen has held three editions of the Screen Awards for excellence in South Indian Cinema, and prizes were awarded for Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada cinema.[citation needed]
