Slumdog's Oscar Trek Continues

Slumdog Millionaire added a pair of trophies to its shelf over the weekend, increasing the heartwarming young-boy-gets-rich tale’s chances for Oscar gold. It won both outstanding movie cast from the Screen Actors Guild and best picture from the Producers Guild of America. At the SAG Awards, Anil Kapoor, who plays a game-show host in the film, said, "to win this is unbelievable," and called the head of Fox Searchlight Peter Rice "the man with the Midas touch" for releasing the unconventional Mumbai-set movie in the U.S. SAG also recognized Sean Penn and Meryl Streep last night for their respective roles in Milk and Doubt.
