Slumdog Is Movin’ On Up


Vulture laid out the case as to why Slumdog Millionaire might make a serious run at Oscar gold in our last installment of Oscar Futures. And now, after picking up the Best Picture award from the National Board of Review earlier today, Danny Boyle's feel-good, Regis Philbin–free ode to the life-affirming power of overseas game shows has a leg up on other front-runners like Milk and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Other big winners today include David Fincher (Best Director), Anne Hathaway (Best Actress), Clint Eastwood (Best Actor), and Vulture-sanctioned Wall-E (Best Animated Feature). See the complete list of winners here. [In Contention]
