Hooray for Slumdog Millionaire

The Oscars are now old news and we shall rejoice once more that a very deserving film got all the recognition it needed. Slumdog Millionaire won a total of eight awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. The film will probably spark a new interest in Bollywood cinema that was waned in the past few years.

Other recognized indies that won Oscars:
The Reader (Weinstein Company)
Milk (Focus Features)
Man on Wire (Magnolia Pictures)
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (Weinstein Company)
Departures (Regent Releasing)
Toyland (Mephisto Films)

If you are like me, you have some serious film watching to do! The rest of the winners are here.

Happy Filmmaking!
