My Oscar Scorecard
Looks like I got most of the predictions right. The only major award I was wrong about was Best Actor, which went to Sean Penn rather than Mickey Rourke. Well, I should have guessed that the Academy is going to make a political statement with that one.
I’m very happy for A.R. Rahman, who snagged 2 Oscars. Slumdog Millionaire itself bagged 8, which is very good. If it gets some of the Indians associated with the film (looking at you, A.R. Rahman and Resul Pookutty) good Hollywood work, that would be a huge positive for the Indian film industry as a whole.
