Slumdog Millionaire bagged 10 Oscar nominations at the 81st annual Academy Awards, getting nods for Best Film, Best Adapted Screenplay (Simon Beaufoy), Best Director (Danny Boyle), Best Original Score (A R Rahman), Best Song (Jai Ho and O Saya), Best Sound Editing (Tom Sayers), Best Sound Mixing (Ian Tapp, Richard Pryke and Resul Pookutty), Best Cinematography (Anthony Dod Mantle) and Best Film Editing (Chris Dickens).
The Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Dev Patel and Freida Pinto starrer has been getting a lot of raves ever since it made its turns at leading film festivals across the world. It bagged four Golden Globe awards in the same categories as its Oscar nods (and one for A R Rahman for Best Original Score). The film will release in India on January 23.
Wish the Slumdog team, as they march ahead to the Oscars, to be held on February 22.
