On Sunday, Feb. 22, as soon as the Best Picture Oscar is announced, join SAJA... on BlogTalkRadio for a live two-hour webcast and call-in show about "Slumdog Millionaire."
experts, journalists and others1 will discuss the phenomenon that the
movie has become and why - no matter how it does at the Oscars - it
will be talked about for years to come.
- We will look at every aspect of the film - its origin as Vikas
Swarup's novel; how it almost never made it to the screen; the reviews
around the world; its Golden Globe and BAFTA success; how it was
marketed and promoted in ways never seen before; the controversies
surrounding it and much, much more.
- We will also have live reports from the post-Oscar parties in various cities, including the official Fox Searchlight party for "Slumdog" cast and crew in Hollywood as well as live reaction from Mumbai.

What? You don't speak LOL? Fine. I shall translate. Sree-chetta (of SAJA-fame) asked if I'd like to be part of a two-hour, post-Oscar show about Slumdog Millionaire, the most loved/loathed brown movie EVAR. We'll be examining all of it, from it's book-y origins to why people froth at the mouth as soon as it's mentioned.
I'm going to live-blog the red carpet/ceremony for SM, so it's going to be one looooong night.
Have I mentioned that I'm just barely recovered from my cold, and that at any given moment, my voice might give out OR I might sound like a drunken frog? Laissez les bon temps roulez. And if you have thoughts you'd like to share about that other SM, the film (hey! we were here first!), feel free to leave them in the comments below.
1That would be me, y'all.
