And The Award For Best Picture Goes To Slumdog Millionaire

February 23, 2009

By Mary Montserrat-Howlett

Slumdog Millionaire Wins 6 Oscars, 8 Nominations


HOLLYWOOD (RushPRnews) 02/23/09-- "We had no stars; no power; no money, but a script that inspired mad love" and for a movie about destiny, this film sure had a way of writing its own. When it comes to the Oscars, it’s always refreshing to see the little guy win and with “Slumdog’s” mere $15 million budget, it all goes to show, that a good story can win over the Academy’s heart.

A special evening for all of Slumdog’s casts, two of the youngest members, (who still living in Mumbai's slums) made their first trip outside India to attend this momentous event.
Bouncing up and down film director Danny Boyle said" Finally, just to say to Mumbai, "Unending, inseparable, unborn." All of you who've helped us make the film and all of you of those of you who didn't, thank you so much. You dwarf even this guy (gesturing to the statuette). Thank you very much indeed."

With eight nominations, the film did stand against some tough competition in the Best Picture category including: “Frost/Nixon”, “The Reader”, “Milk” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” Its actors, including London-based lead actor Dev Patel, and his leading lady Freida Pinto, not to forget Irrfan Khan, and Anil Kapoo, mostly unknown in America appeared stunned throughout the evening, as Oscars winnings piled up.

“Slumdog” won in several other categories throughout the night- including Best Cinematography and Best Adapted Screenplay. A rags to riches story, turns a little film into a grand scale masterpiece.
