15 Indian Celebrities Who Made Us Proud At Oscars
SPONSORED

The Acadamy Awards, or should I say The Oscars bring with itself a plethora of talented people dressed in couture and carrying themselves with utmost grace while posing for the shutterbugs. The picture it creates in our mind is a grand celebration, celebrating the best of talents from all around the world. It is indeed a very big deal, but what is unfortunate is that it is rather difficult to spot colour in a sea of white, but the few times our countrymen were acknowledged are the moments we cherish forever!

Here is a list of Indians who were nominated (some even won) for their impeccable display of art. 

Enjoy!
