No one could stop Slumdog Millionaire at last night’s Academy Awards as the little Indian film that could walked away with 8 Oscar trophies including Best Picture.
Though Slumdog has yet to be formally announced for Blu-ray Disc, pre-orders have been active for the title at Amazon.com for several weeks. The Oscar wins will send many scrambling to see what all the fuss is about.
