Slumdog Millionaire : From Rags to Riches

Wow! The word I could only utter when the awards keeps on coming... I haven't had a chance to watch the movie but from the trailer you wouldn't be expecting this would come this far. Though it didn't have nominations for the actors but it did capture the Best Motion Picture of the Year award.
