The cast and crew found it hard to containg their excitement! No wonder! This will be the news for many days to come! A well deserved win for the movie which has won over a billion hearts 🙂

A. R. Rahman delivered the dialogue “mere paas maa hai” – “my mother is here with me” and even spoke tamil on dias. He also performed the two songs from SM nominated for the awards with indian dancers, drums and all! It was really wonderful seeing the Oscars getting an Indian Flavour!

In other India-linked nominations, “Smile Pinky” won the academy award for the Best Documentary. Full article >

Heath Ledger received the Oscar for best actor in a supporting role, Sean Penn for best actor, Kate Winslet for best actress. The curious case of Benjamin Button too walked off with multiple awards to its name.
