The most coveted golden lady knight (Thanks to Reema for pointing it out) is being given out now!! Yes, I am watching 81st Annual Academy Awards live right now!!
And boy! Indians are on a roll!! 🙂
It started with the live coverage of the Red Carpet on E!. It was a splendid delight watching the kids from the movie Slumdog Millionaire adorn the red carpet in their little tuxedos! 🙂 Oh! they all looked like little angels!! 🙂 Anil Kapoor, Irfan Khan, Dev Patel and Freida Pinto looked at ease! I liked Irfan Khan’s calm and composed conduct, while Anil totally went over the top! 😉 😛
Now, here is a list of the wins so far 🙂
