Three songs from Indian film in Academy Award long-list

By NewsDesk • Published on December 21, 2011

Three songs from the India-UAE co-production Dam999 have made it to the long-list of nominations for the Original Song category for the 84th Academy Awards. The songs are: “Dakkanaga Dugu Dugu”, “DAM999 Theme Song” and “Mujhe Chodh Ke”.

Written and directed by Sohan Roy, the 3-D film was released in theatres on November 25, 2011 by Warner Bros.

Thirty-nine songs from eligible feature-length films are contesting for nominations in the Original Song category. To be eligible, a song must consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film.  A clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film or as the first music cue in the end credits, as mentioned on the official website of Academy Awards.

On January 5, the Academy will screen clips featuring each song, in random order, for voting members of the Music Branch in Los Angeles.  Following the screenings, members will determine the nominees by an averaged point system of voting.

The 84th Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on January 24, 2012.
