M.I.A. Oscar Nomination for "Slumdog Millionaire" Song

I've seen "Slumdog Millionaire" and it's a nice movie (check out my review of "Slumdog Millionaire" and I'll probably see it again soon. But what stood out for me in the movie was the music. It really drives the movie and the music is mostly upbeat throughout the movie. That Indian vibe is killer. Love that.

So the Academy took note of the music in "Slumdog Millionaire" as well. The movie got a nod for best score. But I was hyped to know that M.I.A. got a nomination for "O Saya". It's a song driven by drums and chanting and then M.I.A. lays it down. Awesome. "O Saya" is up against another track from "Slumdog Millionaire" as well as song from "Wall-E".

O... Saya - M.I.A.

Now hip hoppers, I don't expect you to sit through the entire Oscar ceremony on Sunday, February 22, 2009, but at least check back to see if M.I.A. gets the guy. kfox.
