We had high hopes from the Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully boy for a chance at the Oscars but not anymore! Read on….
The cinema lovers were jumping with joy when they got to know Zoya Akhtar‘s Gully Boy had been officially selected for India’s entry at the prestigious Oscars for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category. The film starred Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Siddhant Chaturvedi in pivotal roles and emerged as one of the most well-received films in 2019.
Ranveer, Alia and Zoya even posted about this accomplishment in their usual excitement. Like one of this…
But seems like the film failed to impress the jury members of the Academy awards as it did not make it to the top 10 and the final list of movies. Here are the final 9 categories for which films were officially selected as final nominees. It included Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, International Feature Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Music (Original Score), Music (Original Song), Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film and Visual Effects.
Well, indeed Gully Boy was one of India’s finest but it failed to make it to the top 10. Other films like Czech The Painted Bird (Czech Republic), Les Misérables (France), Atlantics (Senegal) have been nominated for the designated category.
The Academy Awards will be happening on Feb 9th in Los Angeles. Sigh!
