By know all of you have heard the buzz on “Slumdog Millionaire”. It’s not only won the hearts of audiences across the country, it’s one of the favorite films of almost every critic I know. And after last night’s win at the Golden Globes, it’s sure to gain even more fans. While sometimes Hollywood gets it wrong with their end of the year nominations, this is one of those rare films that gets it right.

Anyhow, at tonight’s LAFCA (Los Angeles Film Critics Awards) ceremony in Beverly Hills, I managed to interview a few of the guests on the red carpet and the ones below are with the people behind “Slumdog Millionaire”.

While you won’t learn anything new about the movie, you will get to see how excited they all still are after winning so many awards last night. They’re still on cloud nine and none of them have slept. As usual, I’ve listed what I asked. Again, if you haven’t seen “Slumdog” yet, go see it!
