a: he cheated; b: he's lucky; c: he's a genius; d: it is written

Sweet! The Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack has been nominated for three Academy Awards! A. R. Rahman for original score while "O... Saya" and "Jai Ho" are both up in the original song category. I absolutely love the music in the movie, I really hope A. R. Rahman wins for original score!

A. R. Rahman & M.I.A.: O... Saya [wicked-cool song]
A. R. Rahman ft. Sukhvinder Singh, Tanvi Shah & Mahalaxmi Iyer: Jai Ho

The film is also nominated for best picture and best director, and it deserves both awards; Slumdog is Danny Boyle’s best film since Trainspotting!

On the other hand, I am quite disappointed that Revolutionary Road and The Dark Knight are not up in the best picture category. I am pretty surprise that Kate Winslet is not nominated for her incredible performance in Revolutionary Road and even more shock that it didn’t get an adapted screenplay nomination! WFT!?!? …I am very disappointed!

did you happen to catch Let the Right One In ? I highly recommend that movie if you haven't seen it

I wanted to watch it during the Toronto After Dark Fest, but missed it. I have it somewhere on my HD, I will definitely watch that soon!

Don't know if I agree with Derek about Let the Right One In. Pretty slow paced, maybe even boring. Then again, maybe I'm stuck-up. Thought Dark Knight was pretty shit too. Only good thing about it was Heath Ledger.
