A R Rahman Lose Out in Best Original Score & Best Song at Oscars Awards 2011

CALIFORNIA: Indian hopes were dashed when Indian Music Genius A R Rahman missed out the Oscar Award 2011 for Best Original Score and Best Song categories. Rahamn lost the Oscar for best original song to Randy Newman.

Randy Newman won the best original song award for “We Belong Together” in “Toy Story 3″. Rahman was nominated with Dido and Rollo Armstrong, who wrote the lyrics for the song “If I Rise” for the movie “127 Hours”.

Rahman also lose out in the best original score category for Danny Boyle directed “127 Hours”. He lost it to composer duo Trent Rezmor and Atticus Ross who won it for “The Social Network”

On the eve of the Oscar Awards 2011, Rahman performed his nominated track ‘If I Rise’ from the Danny Boyle film ‘127 Hours’ with British popstar Florence Welch. ‘127 Hours’, starring James Franco had won six nominations including Best Film, but returned empty handed.

Indians were disappointed further when NRI editor Tariq Anwar failed to bag the Best Film Editing trophy for the British drama ‘The King’s Speech’, which went to Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter of ‘The Social Network’.

In 2009, Rahman won two Oscar Awards for his music in another of Boyle’s film, the Mumbai based potboiler ’Slumdog Millionaire’. The ‘Mozart of Madras’ missed the golden trophy last year too, after his song ‘Na Na’ (from ‘Couple’s Retreat’) failed to get a nomination despite being in the long list for the ‘Best Song’ category.

Indian Music Maestro Rahman was honoured with a Padma Bhushan last year. He also enjoyed a golden run at the 52nd Grammy Awards, where he had bagged two gramophones for his music in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
