The 81st Annual Academy Awards were held yesterday at the Kodak Theatre, and it was a beautiful night for Slumdog Millionaire. Danny Boyle’s Dickensian rags-to-riches story set in India swept the ceremony with 8 wins, including Best Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, and Editing.
