Four Indian Works Have Been Shortlisted For The Academy Awards In Various Categories

For the first time, all of India is keenly aware of the Academy Awards because of SS Rajamouli’s campaign for RRR’s Oscar nomination. The Academy has released the shortlists in 10 categories - two Indian films and two documentaries have made it to the next stage.  

Academy Awards, popularly known as Oscars, are presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). The awards are regarded as one of the most prestigious honours to be bestowed on artists from the worldwide entertainment industry. 

When a piece of work is shortlisted for a specific category, it is critically looked at by the judges and has a chance to make it to the final nominations. The winner is then chosen from the nominees and announced on the day of the award ceremony.

'Chello Show', Pan Nalin’s Gujarati take on ‘Cinema Paradiso’, which is India’s official nomination to the Academy Awards, has been shortlisted in ‘The Best International Feature’ category. The film revolves around a young boy who yearns to make it big in the world of cinema and escape from his village after being infatuated with films. 

‘RRR’ has also made the shortlist for The Best Original song category. It made history as the first Indian song to be nominated in the category.  MM Keeravani’s catchy composition “Naatu Naatu” is a leading contender for the original song.

‘All That Breathes’, a documentary directed by Shaunak Sen, has made the shortlist for Best Documentary Feature. It is the first Indian documentary to win at Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. It captures the efforts of two brothers in saving a bird known as “Black Kite” which is struggling to breathe in the rising pollution of Delhi air. 

'The Elephant Whisperers', picked up by the streaming giant Netflix earlier this month, is on the list for Best Documentary Short. The documentary follows an old couple in south India who adopt an elephant named Raghu and work to ensure his survival.
