Tsotsi wins in the Olympics of Filmmaking

Tsotsi wins OscarWell I’ll be a monkey’s uncle, I think I have chosen the wrong career path! I have only ever posted two articles on good movies I have watched, those two movies being Crash and Tsotsi. Which two movies won Oscars last night? Crash: Best Picture, and, more importantly, Tsotsi: Best Foreign Language Film.

“Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrica, God bless Africa!” Hood said, upon receiving his award.

I’m feeling very proud to be a South African today, and I am very confident that this award is the start of something big. We can expect a lot more great local productions in the near future, and a much bigger international audience will be watching.
