The Washington Post: "Obama a 'Slumdog Millionaire' Fan"
"President Obama may not be delivering a State of the Union tonight, but he's adhering to one apparently unshakable SOTU tradition: lunching with the anchors. The purpose, of course, was to spin -- or guide -- the journalistic guests on the speech to Congress. But one participant tells me the president began by talking about 'Slumdog Millionaire,' the India-based film that cleaned up at the Oscars. Obama said the movie reminded him of the years he spent in Indonesia."
The New York Times: "A Starless Movies Starry Night"
"There were plenty of questions and photos for many of the [Oscar] winners, including a few who were up past their bedtimes. The kids from 'Slumdog Millionaire,' flown in just a few days before from India, moved as a posse, and the director Danny Boyle placed the statue on Azharuddin Mohammed Ismails head for one photo and took turns holding it with the others. He said that although he had managed the children on screen, 'I am not going to be the one to tell them its time to go to bed.'"
