Danny Boyle's much talked about and much appreciated drama Slumdog Millionaire has been nominated for Best Motion Picture (Drama) at the Golden Globe awards. The Golden Globes is considered as a predecessor to the much more prestigious Academy Awards (Oscar) and films which usually find a nomination at the Golden Globe more often than not make the final cut at the Oscars.
Slumdog Millionaire, which has been making the rounds of film festivals for a while now, tells the story of a slum boy who goes on to take part in a quiz game show. The film released in the US recently and has received both critical and commercial success. Recently, the film also won 3 top awards at the British Independent Film awards. With this prestigious Golden Globe nomination, the makers now surely have their eyes set on the next big thing - an Oscar nomination.
Slumdog Millionaire is set to release across cinema halls in India in January 2009.
