The hype and hoopla surrounding the success of the magnum opus Baahubali is still on and as expected, some new expectations are taking shape. Notable among them is the demand that Baahubali deserves an Oscar award. Now, let us talk some facts and reality bytes.
Fact is, there is a certain criteria and nomination process for a film to enter into Oscar race. It is clear that even if Baahubali is sent from India, it would only appear in ‘Best Foreign Film’ category and there again, it needs to make it to the final list of nominees. This is again based on certain parameters.
As such, the jury panel in Oscar committee considers films which reflect something contemporary in society and not a fictitious war epic. The bottom-line is, while Baahubali has got a very good chance of sweeping the awards at the national level and other events, grabbing an Oscar is quite far.
