Oscar Millionaires




“Slumdog Millionair” directed by Danny Boyle banged eight Oscars for best direction, original score, adapted-screenplay, original song, cinematography sound mixing and film editing.
This film features the life of a boy who leaved in the slums of Mumbai which is acted up by an upcoming actor Dev Patel and upcoming actress Fredia Pinto.
A R Rahman banged double Oscars for the Original Score and Original song “Jai ho” which he shared with lyricist Gulzar.
Personally I am a big fan of A R Rahman’s compositions.
Here is the Oscar winning song for you

Another Indian to bang an Oscar was Resul Pookutty who got the award for best sound mixing.

My hearty congratulations for all the Oscar winners who made the world proud of their skills!
Good luck !

I heard on the radio this morning that Warner Brothers passed up Slumdog Millionaire thinking it would be a flop. Then Fox picked it up, took a chance, and it was very successful. I have not seen the movie. Congrats to those representing your country on winning these Oscars!

About my blog, I didn't do any of the cutesie stuff. I'm not creative at all. You're so sweet with your comments but I took the easy road out I actually paid a blog designer to make it all for me. :)
