SLUMDOG Brouhaha in Current NEWSWEEK

Cover of Current Issue of NEWSWEEK

     Kudos AGAIN to Ramin Setoodeh of Newsweek for his terrific article “The Oscar Doesn’t Go To …

     “…But if SLUMDOG wins big, this global Cinderella story could get an awkward dose of reality. Onscreen, SLUMDOG is filled with brown faces—but onstage at the Oscars, virtually all of the people collecting trophies for it will have white ones… Boyle has said that his casting director, Loveleen Tandan, was so indispensable to the complex Mumbai shoot that he gave her a “codirector” credit. But only Boyle’s name appears on the Oscar ballot, because AMPAS & the DGC don’t recognize such titles. Guess she’ll have to settle for a thank-you.”
