While Indian themes have dominated and won at the prestigious awards ceremony (for example, Gandhi and Slumdog Millionaire), very few Indians have walked away with the Golden statue.

Which Indian won the first Oscar award?

Bhanu Athaiya became the first Indian to win an Academy Award in 1983, for designing the costumes for Richard Attenborough's Gandhi. Satyajit Ray became the first Indian to receive an Honorary Academy Award in 1992.

Which Indian movie has been nominated for Oscar award so far?

As of 2016, only three Indian films—Mother India, Salaam Bombay! and Lagaan—have been nominated for the Academy Award for "Best Foreign Language Film". In 2011, the jury of the 58th National Film Awards made a recommendation that films winning Best Film at the annual National Film Awards should be the official entry.
