Swedish filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul, who has been tearing a swath through awards season with his film debut, “Searching for Sugar Man,” is scheduled to attend his first-ever Oscar ceremony Sunday as a nominee for documentary feature.

How has awards season been for you? You’ve won Writers Guild, DGA, BAFTA and other awards. How many have you won?

Over 30 awards internationally. In awards season we won Writers Guild, Producers Guild, Directors Guild, the American Cinema Editors and BAFTA, the IDA — International Documentary Assn.’s award — and Critics’ Choice and the National Board of Review.

So did you have to buy a tux for this?

I didn’t. I was given a tux by Brooks Brothers. I was very, very grateful for that.
