Oscars 2009 - Best Movie nominees
Monday, February 16, 2009
Few people are in any doubt that Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire
is going to win the Best Motion Picture Oscar this year, especially since it has swept every single award so far - be it the Golden Globe or the BAFTA.
Even Danny Boyle is up for Best Director award for this film, which has a sum total of ten nominations.
So sure is India that this film is going to come out with top honours that bets for as much as Rs. 2 million have been raised. People may have bet their life's saving rooting for an Oscar win for Slumdog Millionaire
, but actor Anil Kapoor, who plays the host of the game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire
in the film says the cast and crew are not that confident, despite sweeping all other awards.
