The nominations for the 16th Asian Film Awards were announced on Saturday, ahead of the March 12 presentation in Hong Kong. Director Park Chan-wook’s Decision to Leave, which won the Best Director Award at the Cannes International Film Festival 2022, has topped the list with 10 nominations. The film is competing in the Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Original Music, Best Production Design, and Best Sound categories.

Surprisingly, Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan 1 has received more nominations than SS Rajamouli’s RRR. While PS1 has been nominated under six categories, including Best Film, Best Original Music, Best Production Design, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, and Best Costume Design, RRR is competing in only two categories — Best Visual Effects and Best Sound.
