India’s ‘RRR’, ‘All That Breathes’ & ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ Bag Oscar Nominations

The Oscars AKA the Academy Awards is one of the coveted awards in the entertainment industry in the United States. Every year, artists from across the globe keep their fingers crossed to at least get a nomination in the awards, if not the accolade itself.

This year, it’s a triple bonanza for the Indian film industry as three of our creative projects have been nominated for the award.

After scripting history by winning the Golden Globe Award, the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the Telugu film ‘RRR’ has been nominated for ‘Best Original Song’ at the 95th Academy Awards.

Moreover, the Indian documentary film ‘The Elephant Whisperers’, directed by Kartiki Gonsalves and produced by Guneet Monga, has also been nominated in the ‘Documentary Short Film’ category.

Next up is Shaunak Sen’s documentary ‘All That Breathes’ which has made it to the nominations for the Academy Award in the ‘Documentary Feature Film’ category.

The fact that three Indian films can win the international award has made Twitter proud. This is how people reacted:

Earlier, ‘Chhello Show’ India’s official entry in the 95th Academy Awards was expected to make it in the ‘International Feature Film’ category. However, it was dropped from the final nomination list.

Interestingly, ‘RRR’ was not even selected to represent the country at the upcoming 95th Academy Awards. But here it is.

Last year’s Oscars was a memorable one after Will Smith slapped the host and comedian Chris Rock on the stage of the Oscars after he made a joke about his wife.

The Oscars ceremony will be held on March 12, in Los Angeles, California. Hoping to see India pick all three trophies. Woohoo!
