The complete list of National Awards 2018 is announced, and Sridevi won the Best Actress award for her performance in the critically acclaimed film Mom. India's official entry to the Academy Awards previous year, Amit Masurkar's black comedy Newton, was named the Best Hindi Film.

Regional cinema dominated the 65th National Film Awards which were announced on Friday.

In a career spanning over four decades, Sridevi had featured in films like Sadma, Gumrah, and English Vinglish among the many other films that saw her versatility as an actor. Vinod Khanna has been given the Dadasaheb Phalke Award. Apart from Shekhar Kapur, the jury panel consists of 10 members including Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit's film, Parinda's screenwriter Imtiaz Hussain, lyricist Mehboob, South Indian actress Gautami Tadimalla and Kannada director P Sheshadri. "My director and co-actors made it so easy for me to act in this film", the Gangs of Wasseypur actor said.

Rajkummar Rao starrer Newton, which tells the story of a government clerk who tries to run a free and fair election in a conflict area in central India, was also the official selection as India's entry for the 90th Academy Awards.

Blockbuster "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" won most popular film and awards for special effects and action choreography. "I'm ecstatic with the news about the film winning the National Award Honour".

Nargis Dutt award for the best feature film on national integration went to the Marathi film "Dhappa", while the Malayalam film "Aalorumkkam" was recognised as the best film on social issues. I would look at all the actors, talk about them and I would say, "there should be not Sridevi, not Sridevi"! It is a dream come true.

Bengali actor Riddhi Sen won the best actor award for Bengali drama Nagarkirtan, while Jayaraj won best director for Malayalam drama Bhayanakam.
