Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

SM Did It!!

Hey, you all know that I am not the movie's biggest fan, but that doesn't mean I can't be thrilled. Did I or did I not predicted that it would 'sweep the Oscars'? But love it or hate it, I'm doing quite a happy dance. How can I not?!?

I am SUPER thrilled for A.R. Rahman! I think he's the bestest! The man is a musical genius! Ok, since I am quite good at putting a dampner on things...I don't think SM was his best work, I mean have you heard the soundtrack of Delhi-6??, but be that as it may, I am SOOOO happy he won! I was rooting for him all the way. And add to it the master poet himself, Gulzar! An award winning combination if there ever was one!

Congratulations My. Boyle, on the award! I was all teary-eyed to see the little boys playing Salim and Javed on stage, looking so sweet, innocent and handsome in their tuxedos. As for Irrfan Khan and Anil Kapoor...woo hoo! Quite the mini Mumbai on stage!

A few side notes:
I loved watching Hugh Jackman do his thing!
I loved when Kate Winslet asked her dad "to whistle or something"...and he did!
I loved the fact that Sean Penn won!
I loved watching Hugh Jackman do this thing!
I loved Queen Latifah's tribute to those who have bid the the world of cinema and cinema-lovers, adieu.
I loved the way past winners gave introduced the nominees for this year's awards in the acting categories.
I loved watching Hugh Jackman do his thing!

I got teary-eyed as I watched...
~those who got teary-eyed accept thier awards!
~Heath Ledger's family accept the award in his memory for "The Dark Knight"...truly and richly deserved!
~Azharuddin Md. Ismail and Ayush Mahesh Khedekar, young Salim and Javed respectively, on stage.
~the humanitarian side of Jerry Lewis unfold before my eyes just before he was presented with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.
~the tribute to those stars who shine in a different sphere now, especially Paul Newman.
~Hugh Jackman say 'good night'.

I'm equally ecstatic for Rahman and now I need to go home and watch what exactly was the 'thing' that Hugh Jackman was doing! :D

I liked hugh jackman too. and despite what the edia is saying, I did like the look and feel of oscars this year. and ofcousrse ARR winning gave me goose bumps. and loved kate's and lance's speeches.

Same feelings about ARR. Though he deserved an Oscar but am not sure if SM is the movie for which he deserves it :) Loved to read all the excitement of your Oscar-view!
