CRB Tech reviews over here shares about AR Rahman’s Oscar nomination second time.
It could be a two time win for Indian music genius A.R. Rahman second again at the Academy Awards as his work for Pele: Birth of a Legend has found in a prime record of Oscar competitors for the year.
Proud to be an Indian!
Rahman, who previously authorized a dual Oscar success for his music in Slumdog Millionaire in 2009, has been a part of a ‘long list’ of 145 ratings in discussion for a nomination in the Unique Score classification for the future 89th Academia Awards.
Ginga, Rahman’s famous number from the 2016 biographical film, is in the Oscar competition too. It is part of the 91 songs, which are competitive for the victory in the last nominations for the Unique Music classification.
The preliminary record of competitors for both the groups were launched by the Academia of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on its formal web page on Tuesday.
Final nominations for the 89th Academia Prizes will be declared on Jan 24, before the ceremony of presentation, which will take place on Feb 26 at the Dolby Cinema at The Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood.
In 2009, Rahman was honored for his Best Unique Ranking for Slumdog Millionaire, as also the Best Unique Music Jai ho from the same film. The track had lines by Gulzar.
Rahman began his trip in the background music business by writing ratings for documentaries and TV reveals before he got his first film crack with “Roja” in 1992.
He got his first worldwide break when Phil Lloyd Webber welcomed him to write music for the Broadway musical show “Bombay Dreams”, which won him tremendous popularity.
He also composed for the stage adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord Of The Rings” that was launched in North America in 2006 and in London, UK in 2007.
In 2014, Rahman’s work in Hollywood films like “Million Money Arm” and “The Hundred-Foot Journey”, and Native indian film “Kochadaiiyaan”, was also among the Oscar competitors.
In 2011, Rahman had obtained two nominations for the 83rd Yearly Academia Prizes for his original score in Boyle’s “127 Hours” as well as original song “If I Rise” for the same film. However, he did not carry the award home.
Co-directed by Mark Zimbalist and Eileen Zimbalist, “Pele: Birth of a Legend” is a biopic on the famous Brazil footballer Pele.
Meanwhile, Alex Heffes — who composed music for Indian film maker Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe” — is also a part of both the groups for his music in the biographical sports drama film.
