Naatu Naatu and The Elephant Whisperers do India proud by wins at Oscars 2023

The Oscars 2023 was today held at the Dolby Theater in Ovation Hollywood hosted by Jimmy Kemmel. Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone participated as presenter while the 'RRR' team of S.S. Rajamouli, Ram Charan and Jr. NTR made their presence felt with high anticipation of wins.

The iconic 'Naatu Naatu' song from 'RRR' won the Best Original Song category and the award was recieved by music composer M.M. Keeravani and lyricst cum singer Chandrabose. The song has dominated the music world having already won the The Golden Globe Award in the same category as well.

'The Elephant Whisperer' won the Best Documentary Short and it is worth mentioning its strong Tamil Nadu connection. The subject directed by Kartika Gonsalves is about a mahout couple from The Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary in The Nilgiris whose bonding and communication skills with the elephants is almost supernatural. The film's producer Guneeth Monga is one of the coproducers of Suriya's critically acclaimed 'Soorarai Pottru' directed by Sudha Kongara. The win is even more elating considering a rare female dominance.

The multiverse transversing 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' made a clean sweep of seven wins from eleven nominations. Here is the list of the other winners in major categories.
