Oscars 2023: ‘RRR’ creates history, gets nominated for Best Original Song

RRR creating history and a proud moment for all Indians.

To much anticipation, SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster epic RRR has created history by being nominated for the 95th Academy Awards under the best original song category for its track ‘Naatu Naatu’. The nomination makes it the first Indian film to get a nomination under the category, and in fact, under any category other than the Best International Feature Film category.

Other nominees under the category are ‘Applause’ from Tell It Like A Woman, ‘Hold My Hand’ from Top Gun: Maverick, ‘Lift Me Up’ from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and ‘This is Life’ from Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Notably, ‘Naatu Naatu’ won the Golden Globe for the best song earlier this month. The win made RRR the first Indian film to win a Golden Globe. The song is composed by music director MM Keeravaani, and sung by Kala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj, with lyrics by Chandrabose.

RRR earlier won at the Critics Choice Awards as well

At the 2023 Critics Choice Awards, RRR was awarded the trophy for Best Foreign Language Film, while the smash hit ‘Naatu Naatu’ took home the award for Best Original Song. The song, composed by M. M. Keeravani, also took home the Golden Globe award in the same category.

It was also nominated in other categories like Best VFX, Best International Film, and Best Original Song for ‘Naatu Naatu’, the latter two of which it won.

Drawing inspiration from the lives of freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju,  RRR narrates a fictional tale set in the 1920s. The film boasts an ensemble cast, starring the likes of Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Samuthirakani, Alison Doody, and Ray Stevenson.
