Oscar pick 2009

Finally an Indian Osacar pick that makes some sense: It is Taare Zameen Par, and I have some hope that it may make it to the top 5. Last year's pick was ... oh so very very wrong.

Since a lot in its success will have to do with lobbying panels to watch TZP to begin with (not all judges are required to see *all* films that are put forth by the countries), I think they'll be very well equipped to lead the effort. It'll help that they have prior experience with Lagaan. And the Disney deal sounds a lot better now. Long way to go...

TZP '09! :)

I really hope the Disney deal does good- keep in mind that Lagaan DVD too was released in the US- but I feel it just didnt pick up enough sales to help adequately in the Oscars.

Totally w/ u on TZP '09! oh those lobbyists- I feel that Aamir and his team must be getting well-prepared this time around, especially with their earlier experience.

I really, really hope that despite my cynicism it does make it to the final five.

Absolutely- I am throwing all doubts aside and firmly supporting TZP'09- its time!

Hopefully, the Lagaan experience and the release of the TZP DVD will help.

Hoping and praying for TZP...with my fingers (n toes) :)

Last year's entry was a joke!
