Watching The Oscars From The Slums of Mumbai

slumdog india

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 sititng in the streets watching Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. I wish we had video to see what the reaction of the Slumdog sweep looked like back in India. If the Oscar producers weren’t so busy organizing Broadway dance numbers, maybe they could have gotten a camera and a live satellite hookup at this location.
