As the Micromax IIFA Awards 2010 draw nearer, the nominees for the prestigious Awards have come out to make their excitement known. Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor, who are up against each other in the Performance in a Leading Role - Male for the Micromax IIFA Awards 2010, are incredibly pleased with the honour and recognition for their work. Speaking on his nomination for WAKE UP SID, Ranbir Kapoor says, "It feels very good when your work is reciprocated in such a big way. And I hope I win the Best Actor awards somewhere soon in my life."

Shahid Kapoor, nominated for his performance in KAMINEY says, "I am happy that I have been nominated for KAMINEY. It is a very special film for me. IIFA is indeed the best award function and is a wonderful opportunity to interact with international audience."
