On Thursday morning, “Searching for Sugar Man” director Malik Bendjelloul was still getting used to the reality of having made an Oscar-nominated film.

“It feels surrealistic, crazy. Oscar is, the word itself, it’s something you’ve heard about since you were a kid. It never occurred to be that it was something anyone ever achieved. I mean, I’m from Sweden. It’s completely crazy,” he told the Free Press from Los Angeles.

    I agree. Many of us are sooo emotionally invested in this film. It is so special.

  5. Fab says:

    Wouldn’t that be the first Oscar for a movie that has been partly filmed with just an iPhone?
    Even this is material for another movie!

    Incredible work. Good luck!
