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.

Yes Malik, you deserve it. We all are thankful to you.
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!
I agree. Many of us are sooo emotionally invested in this film. It is so special.
Malik, you deserve it.
