'Slumdog' bags 8 Oscars

Slumdog Millionaire has turned out to be the big winner at the 81st Academy Awards, with the Mozart of Madras, AR Rahman, bringing home two awards with his Jai Ho... composition. The film won in the following categories

- Best Adapted Screenplay

- Best Sound mixing
- Best Film Editing
- Best Original Score

The best part is that the little ones were also there to share in the fame, including my absolute favourite: adorable Ayush. Now that's a far cry from that squat toilet scene. The boy is such a sweet sight for sore eyes.

I say Mr Bachan, eat your heart out.
