Oscar awards are the considered the ultimate and best of all the awards. Do you follow it every year, atleast for the major categories? Which movie do you think is going to win the Oscar this year? Is it Slum Dog Millionaire? or some other movie? Have you seen this movie? How did you like it? Good or average or bad? If any other movie, then which one?

Nah, I never watch awards shows. it's not really my thing. i hate the commercials. And some of the actors I don't know anymore because they're too old haha. But I do read the reviews of who wore what and what film won many awards. :) Sometimes, when a film wins an Oscar then I might be more inclined to watch it. But mostly, I prefer the blockbuster movies. :)

hi worthy, i not an avid follower of the oscar award but i keep tabs on who the nominees are especially if my current favorite movies or actor are included in it. I really don't have an idea who will won the movie category; I've watched most film who are nominated and I like most of them. But I do hope that it's one of my three favorites - Vicky Christina Barcelona, The Dark Knight, and Changeling. I haven't watched Slum Dog Millionaire. My friends said that it's good so it's already on my list of "movies to be watch"...

But I didn't like the movie slumdog.... Its all too eeky and romanticising of poverty. That's just a part. But there are moments which are gripping.
