2020 LUX Style Awards Nominations Announced

The Award Ceremony will continue its legacy of recoginsing talent in the Pakistani entertainment and fashion industries by awarding its coveted awards.

The LUX Style Awards Nominations Board has just released the nominees for this year’s award ceremony. The 19th LUX Style awards feature 28 categories inclusive of fashion, film, television and music.

The jury selected the nominees online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also due to the pandemic, the awards’ team earlier this year announced that the ceremony would be postponed keeping in mind the health and safety concerns.

Moreover, the board took a step forward to support those in the entertainment and fashion industry who were badly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. They collaborated with the Akhuwat Foundation to achieve this.

Like the other ceremonies, LUX Style Awards will also take place online due to the aforementioned concerns. The following is the list of nominations in alphabetical order.
