^^^OMG!! Apparently anything with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt would automatically be nominated since practically everyone LOVES Tom Cruise!!!!

I bet the BW awards would wait until the Oscar was given and then give that film the award....afterall, BW does like to copy!!!LOL

There are more than enough small budget movies plus regional movies that were better than Peepli Live (frankly could not sit through the whole movie, sorry if I offend intelligent movie goers with this comment) but Aamir Khan's savvy marketing skills gave it the required boost to even reach the Oscars entry list. Next year should be his wife's movie as it is a tribute to Mumbai as well.
bulls-eye, you hit the bulls eye... Wink
agree with your post though... sadly, the only movies ever considered are the ones which are marketed well, or which are lobbied well, like eklavya was chosen in the past... so really, as of now, they don't stand a chance...
that being said... never say never... as of now, i don't think they have any chances.... it's just another benchmark and a platform to gain recognition... otherwise, oscars are quite overrated, imo... well, every award is....!!  
bollywood should focus on making good movies, insteading of churning out remakes after remakes.. where is the creativity... Confused

It does make me think would Bollywood ever choose a Hollywood film to be entered into their awards I don't know National Awards or IIFA ROFLI mean if they had a Bollywood version of the Oscars ROFL

There is a 'best foreign language film' category at the Academy Award. It is here where Mother India and Lagaan got nominated.

But seriously though, is the only way we have of shoring our reputation up is by getting an Oscar nod? How about trying to make some good films first and then think about the award part later?

Definitely good films should be made then awards should be thought about later on. Sometimes I think Bollywood's expectation is high sometimes when they are given the nod
