Every year the Oscars initiates a debate among the Indian celluloid lovers that why we don't have a set of awards that matters.  

With several movie critics comparing Oscars to our Indian awards, Abhishek Bachchan tweeted: 'Interesting to see/read a lot of the media comparing the Oscars to our Indian awards. Most seem to think that we need to improve... raise our standards.... Wait a minute... Aren't most of OUR awards run and held by media houses! Take the initiative, we shall follow!!'

Film journalist Rajeev Masand wrote: 'At Bollywood awards, it's often hard to find a second deserving hopeful...although they will nominate 4 others they want to please!'

But Masand's tweet didn't go well with director Sujoy Ghosh and he replied: '@RajeevMasand c'mon man.. we are not that bad also :) kuch toh izzat de..'

Music director Vishal Dadlani, on the other hand, feels Indian award shows are more about TV-ratings than talent. '@sujoy_g @RajeevMasand Izzat kamaayi jaati hai, mere dost! :D I'm with Rajeev. Indian awards shows are more about TV-ratings than talent,' he wrote back.

Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor found all the tweets more interesting than the telecast. 'Why watch the Oscars when you have a twitter account ;)'she tweeted.
 
Whereas actor Gaurav Kapur was a light mood and shared a joke: 'If this was an Indian award show, would've ended with Meryl streep doing an Item number from Iron Lady!'
