WASHINGTON: Indian music director of global repute A R Rahman has won the prestigious Golden Globe nomination for the Best Original Score for his
composition in British filmmaker Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, which explores the life of a street boy from Mumbai.

“It is good to hear about all these nominations,” Rahman said. “I always feel that I am just one of the elements and then combining it with other elements it becomes something else,” he said.

Slumdog Millionaire is Rahman’s second big western film score after Shekhar Kapoor’s ‘The Golden Age’.

The tale of the street orphan who ends up on a high-profile television game show also won three other nominations — Best Film , Best Director for Boyle and Best Screenplay for Simon Beaufoy.

Among those who got the best actress nominations were Kate Winslet for ‘Revolutionary Road’ and Angelina Jolie as a distraught mother in ‘The Changeling’.

‘The Strange Case of Benjamin Button’, starring Brad Pitt, and ‘Frost/Nixon’ each garnered five Golden Globe nominations.

Pitt got a Best Actor nomination for ‘The Strange Case’. Others in the fray were Leonardo DiCaprio for ‘Revolutionary Road’, as well as Sean Penn as the title character in ‘Milk’.
