贫民窟狗的奥斯卡奖

新德里——好莱坞一年一度的成功电影庆典(奥斯卡颁奖仪式)上通常都不会有值得印度人期待的东西。过去50年来只有两部印度电影获得过最佳外语片奖的提名,但却都与获奖失之交臂。

因此印度人就转而从有关印度的“主流”电影获奖中寻找乐趣——比如1983年理查德·阿藤伯勒获七项奥斯卡奖的影片《甘地》,还有印度裔费城人奈特·沙马兰编剧并执导的《灵异第六感》的成功故事。

今年,印度的注意力被本季杀出的黑马 《贫民窟狗的百万富翁》 所牢牢吸引——这部以印度为背景、描写印度人物、启用印度裔演员、诠释印度主题的电影——获得了十项奥斯卡奖提名。事实上,有史以来第一次,印度公民能够有幸参与两尊金像的角逐——它们是最佳电影歌曲和A·R·罗曼的最佳电影配乐两个奖项。

    Abolish the Billionaires?

    Edoardo Campanella

    Even many of the wealthiest Americans would agree that the United States needs to overhaul its tax policies to restore a sense of social justice. But, notes Edoardo Campanella, Future of the World Fellow at IE University's Center for the Governance of Change, such reforms would not be enough to restart the engines of social mobility and promote greater equality of opportunity.
