    I tried tuning to all channels but couldn't find any channel showing these awards live. Star Movies was showing the live telecast of Grammy Awards. Zakir Hussian won a Grammy award... :clap:

    God knows what's the fuss over "Jai Ho". Maybe it sounded exotic to the Goras as the slums in the movie did. "Jai Ho" is a mediocre song to say the least and certainly does'nt deserve a BAFTA or Academy. Rehman is clever...he is the quintessential snake charmer, charming the crap out of the Westerners.
