A R Rahman to win the Oscar Award – The Odds!

image If you are thinking that the awards have been announced, you couldn’t be further away from the truth. But given the fact that the musical genius has three nominations for his work in Slumdog Millionaire, one for original score and two for his songs, it should be no sruprise if he wins, especially in the best song category! And if you ask why, well the category has only three nominees and two are for Rahman – for ‘Jai Ho’ with Gulzar and ‘O Saya’ with M.I.A (Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam)!

So given these figures it looks like it will be a Rahman night at the Oscars. Sadly we have to wait for a whole month (the 81st Annual Academy Awards are sceduled for February 22nd, 2009) to see if our prediction is right!

What do you think are Rahman’s chances at the Oscars? How do you think that Slumdog Millionaire will fare? Post your views on AR Rahman and Slumdog Millionaire at the Oscars blog

Till then let us all pray and wish that the number of Indians with Oscar wins goes up to three (or may be five!!). They will join the veteran director Satyajit Ray and costume desginer Bhanu Athaiya, who are the only other Indians who have won this coveted award.
