First of All, Hearty Congratulations to Alla Rakha Rahman for this global achievement.

Yes, A R Rahman has become the first Indian to win the prestigious Golden Globe Award for his score in “Slumdog Millionaire”. The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday is a proud moment for every Indian as A. R. Rahman won the prestigious GOLDEN GLOBE award in the Best Original Background Score category for the film 'Slumdog Millionaire’.

This is a wonderful achievement indeed by this talented, gifted music wizard of India and he had also won the Satellite Award for the same film. Hollywood music composers Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore and Danny Elfman have been impressed by the score Rahman has composed. They made some genuinely warm comments about Rahman's music. 'Mozart of Madras' shook hands with many as he went on to the stage to collect the award and the first word that came out of Rahman was 'Unbelievable' followed by a chuckle.

“Slumdog Millionaire” is based on a novel by Indian diplomat Vikash Swarup and stars Bollywood actors Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan in lead among others. The film was directed by Danny Boyle who also won a Golden Globe for Best Director. The film won two other awards as well – Best Picture and Best Screenplay (Simon Beaufoy).

Now like every diehard fans of Rahman, we can’t wait for the Oscar nominations to be announced on 22.01.2009. Our Rahman is a now a hot favourite at the Oscars.
Let’s hope, he will become the first Indian Music Director to get the Oscars!
