The players from Slumdog Millionaire, who won for ensemble cast, are in the room. They are talking about how it is a movie they started in Mumbai, and when they heard the news of its 10 Oscar nominations last week, they were back in Mumbai.
Dav Patel, now just 18, says he was amazed that Kate Winslet, who he grew up watching, knew who he was. Freida Pinto says, "I hope I don’t wake up tomorrow and someone says, ‘Hey you were dreaming.’ That would be bad." All the players are talking about why the movie is successful — "It’s a love story, a story about an underdog" — and they are genuinely happy to have won the Screen Actors Guild Award.
