Once it looked like Slumdog was going to sweep the Oscars, someone mentioned how they must be all watching and celebrating in Mumbai. At the time I thought, probably not. Well it turns out I was wrong.
The Huffington Post has some photos from the slums outside of Mumbai showing neighbors of some of the child actors from Slumdog Millionaire watch the Oscar telecast live. What a strange image. Almost reminds me of some of the footage from the film where the people of Mumbai are sitting in the streets watching Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
It would have been cool to get video reaction, but it doesn’t seem like that’s the case.
