The Oscars have been announced and surprisingly there is an Indian connection to it. Priyanka Chopra’s highly publicized wedding to Nick Jonas managed to grab an award for ‘Best Foreign Language Wedding’ at the awards event.
How they made it to the Oscars list-
The month long wedding ceremony across cities in India and the US was a last minute entry and was competing against likes of Ranveer-Deepika for the award.
Sources say Oscar jury had to go through 500 hours of wedding footage from Nick Priyanka ceremony that amounted to 10 Tb of data, before announcing their choice for the award.
Apparently, it was a close call and Nick-Priyanka manged to beat Ranveer-Deepika with a margin of 2 receptions.
Priyanka, who is currently still busy with her wedding reception, said that she and Nick were ecstatic and were honored to receive the Oscar. “I’d like to thank our friends and families who followed us to various wedding locations and are still doing. There were many challenges like when Supreme Court asked us to restrict our wedding celebrations to just 3 receptions in India. But all that is behind us,” she said while addressing the guests at the event via video conferencing.
Season 1 of the wedding footage will also be released on Netflix soon.
