The rags-to-riches movie “Slumdog Millionaire” hit it big in real life, taking home four Golden Globe Awards. Actor Heath Ledger also won a Golden Globe award for “The Dark Knight.”

Slumdog Millionaire stars talk about the movie.
Slumdog Millionaire is a low budget film that tells the story of an Indian game show contestant who hails from a poor background. The contestant wins the game show and becomes wealthy and finds love.
The movie won Golden Globe Awards for best dramatic picture, director, screenplay and music score.
Initially, the movie wasn't widely distributed in the U.S. after its distributor Warner Bros. closed Warner Independent Pictures. Fox Searchlight then took over the $14 million movie and started distributing it in the U.S.
Heath Ledger won the best supporting actor award posthumously. His movie “The Dark Knight” became the second-highest grossing movie in Hollywood.
Mickey Rourke won best dramatic actor for his role in “The Wrestler”. Rourke thanked his dogs for sticking with him despite all his difficulties and problems.
Actress Kate Winslet won two awards: she won best ramatic actress for her role in “Revolutionary Road” and she also won best supporting actress for “The Reader,” a film in which she plays a German worker with a horrible secret.
Winslet told the L.A. Times:
"I was so shocked to win one. Honestly, I can't believe it...To have been here so many times and to have not won so many times. To win twice in one night...
Entertainment experts believe the movie “Slumdog Millionaire” will also win multiple Oscars, as the Golden Globe Awards have been a good indicator of the Oscar awards winners in the past
