Slumdog Millionaire-the rags to riches-story based on slums in Mumbai has swept the Academy Awards by winning 8 Oscars out of 10 nominations. Check out Oscar site for the categories in which this movie won the award. A. R. Rehman won 2 Oscars-one for original score and the other for the original song, thus becoming the first Indian to win Oscars. We are proud of you Rehman!

While the entire Slumdog crew is overjoyed by the awards, dancing and mesmerizing on the red carpet, Irfan Khan seems to be a bit different to all this. He is sitting quitely with a faint smile on his face!

Another interesting thing to note is Kate Winslet won Oscar this time for Best Actress in the leading role in the film “The Reader”. She was nominated several times but couldnt win the award in previous years.
