Slum Dog Millionaire

This is my "Hail to the Oscars" which airs tonight a 5PT/8ET. Last week I went to see Slum Dog Millionaire, which I had heard a LOT about. It was one of the best movies I've seen in my entire life, about real life in the Slums of India.

'Slum Dog Millionaire' is about an 18-year-old orphan boy from Mumbai (Patel) who is one question away from winning $20 million rupees on India's "Who wants to be a Millionaire," only to be arrested for suspicion of cheating on the show.
The movie is a flashback in time to points in his life where he learned the answers to these questions in very difficult life circumstances.

It has been nominated in the 10 Oscars categories listed below:
