Slumdog Millionaire Takes Home the Oscar + Rum has lost her voice!

MY Anil and the happiest cast and crew!

I have officially lost most of my vocal chords, I screamed soo loud when my favorite movie Slumdog Millionaire won the Best Picture. Yesterday was one of the happiest days in my life, sad as that sounds it was the first time I wept for Heath Ledger's win and when they won Best Picture, because it was the absolute hysteria of winning that must have transpired over to me! I also managed to screech when AR Rahman won best score and best song for Jai Ho, and the wonderful dancing and dhol playing along with the taiko drums! And gosh darnit AR Rahman's cute and starstruck speech about choosing love instead of hate. SO SWEEEET! And it was brilliant to see my ANil whooping and hold the Oscar high up in the air, as well as holding onto Azharuddin Ismail(youngest Salim) and his sweet and happy grin as well as the Ayush's(youngest Jamal) happy little face!
It certainly made my day and I'm happy even in the face of a looming news story deadline in a few hours, but F*** it Slumdog WON!!!
