Oscar Awards 2012 winners: Bollywood tweets

Bollywood wrote about the 84th Academy Awards winners on social networking site Twitter

Looks like most people in Bollywood were asleep during the live telecast of the 84th Academy Awards. Some enthusiastic ones were wide awake though, and tweeted as the award ceremony was being aired. Amitabh Bachchan did not tweet but wrote about the winning film The Artist on his blog before the Oscars. He said, “I watched a lovely film ‘The Artist’ via the UFO set up in the house and it was a delight to see a black and white, silent movie in February of 2012!! In an age when color and music and speech and sound play such an important role in cinema today, it was most innovative on the part of the makers to present something like this. I believe it is up for the Oscars, which are out tomorrow on Sunday.” The others who tweeted included Neil Nitin Mukesh, Celina Jaitly, Shreya Ghoshal and Rajat Kapoor. Some film journalists were also tweeting incessantly. Amongst all the buzz, we liked what a music channel tweeted. Take a look at:

Neil Nitin Mukesh: ‏”Super awards. Love it. The artist it is.”

Celina Jaitly: “Really looking forward to watch “The Artist” after Baftas n Oscars celebrated it so much …”

“The Artist wins Best Director!! Most unexpected after that start. Grrrr!!”
