A Nepali movies site, merocinema.com, in association with a TV program, Rajatpat, has announced a virtual movie award – Merocinema Popular Awards. The first edition of the yearly movie award will start from the 3rd of December.
The website will ask the movie lovers all around the world to select best in the 15 different categories and vote for them.
There is no doubt that the "virtual award" is a new experiment in Nepal. We have seen the online voting system to be biased and the best (and the busiest) artists usually are defeated in such polls.
Although merocinema has posted about the support from various personnel from the Nepali movie industry, details on the timeline, rules, methodology, and prizes are not publicized yet.
We wish all the best to the new experiment in the Nepali movie industry.
