It has been an unlucky year for AR Rahman, while presently he lost the honour of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, he also lost the race to bag the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards under the Best Original Music category to Alexandre Desplat for The Kings's Speech.
However, even after failing to grab a BAFTA this year, the Oscar awardee Rahman managed to bag in the Best Original Song Award at the 16th Critics' Choice Awards for If I Rise from 127 Hours. The Social Network also took away the Golden Globe Awards beating AR Rahman's music in 127 Hours.
Well, nomination for these prestigious awards is an achievement in itself. We look forward to next year, which will hopefully turn out to be an award spinner for AR Rahman.
