After an incredible show at the Golden Globes with four Golden Globes to its name, Slumdog Millionaire seems all set to sweep the Oscars too. The movie has now picked 10 Oscar nominations which is just next to the Hollywood biggie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” with 13 nominations. However, most critics accept that Slumdog Millionaire’s chances at winning more Oscars are quite high as compared to Benjamin Button due to its great overall performance. The nominations were announced hours before the Indian premiere of the move in Mumbai. The whole of Slumdog crew were thrilled at the Oscar nominations and they started dancing in the premiere in Mumbai. The movie has released today and as I have seen the great movie (I have already written its review a week ago) I advise everybody to watch this great movie at the theaters.
