Sorry(if you are already tired of debating in the other thread) for starting another thread on SDM, though a different question. After winning 4 Golden Globes, do you think it will win Oscars too? If so or otherwise, what's your view on SDM as a  front-runner movie for Oscars? How do YOU rate it as a movie?
 
Your views????

Fortunately it will win about 5 to 6 Oscars. Unfortunately for India the Movie "Taare Zameen Par" was eliminatedfromthe nominations. This movie of Aamir Khan was much more deserving that Slumdog Millionare.

TZP could have had a shot at getting nominated had "Ishaan" being a kid from SLUM/DHARAVI and the teacher a  dedicated GOREY social worker and length of the movie cut short. Whatever, we are proud of TZP from the perfectionist Khan.

For the technical aspects and for the score, I think Slumdog is worthy of winning a few Oscars. I have not seen any of the other best picture nominated movies, so I cannot really say if Slumdog wins. From feedback I hear from people, Benjamin Button is a better movie - but I don't know as I have not seen it yet. While I think Slumdog is an excellent movie and I would love to see it win best movie at Oscars too - it lacks the punch some movies like Crash had.

BTW I am rooting for MIA to win a grammy for Paper Planes.

As for TZP, I think it would have had a better chance if it was a blind deaf quadraplegic autistic child  - because practically every other American is a pill popping mildly dyslexic suffering from acute ADD. They are all Ishaans sans the talent.

completely agree!  Just look into the American public school system, you'll find many Ishaans!  A story about autistic child would be far more appealing to the West because this disorder still has many unanswered questions.

I dont care if TZP is nominated or winning the oscar, It has done a fabulous job, a country where problems with kids disabilities have been shoved away as God's wrath, it was an accomplishment. The fact that Aamir staying with the concept all through the end was awesome, It was more awesome that the film did so well. The movie was an excellent effort to demonstrate why just being a doctor/engineer does not qualify a child to be succesful. t would make fine sense of me to say oh if the movie wasnt about a kid who is dyslexic it would have been successfulWink
 
Coming to Slumdog Millionaire. If I the Indian within me was pulling for someone to win a Oscar about a Indian subject. It would be "Smile Pinki" http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=B6dTAgx2j2c
 
Yeah I want SDM to win Oscars for Jai Ho for Gulzar and ARR, although it isnt even remotely the best work either one has done, so technically it aint worth it either and that is the best nomination up there
 
Rest  dont care, ain't worth it, others have done a much better job.
