With eight Oscars, including Best Motion Picture, Slumdog Millionaire was the absolute winner of last week’s Academy Awards show. As was to be expected, Hollywood’s praise bumped up the download numbers of the film on BitTorrent. Hundreds and thousands of people have downloaded the film this week.
This week there are only three newcomers in our BitTorrent download chart, including the Oscar winners Milk and Slumdog Millionaire.
Although the DVD Screener of Slumdog Millionaire has been available since December last year, it never made it into our weekly top 10 up until now. According to our estimates the film was downloaded close to a million times after it won the awards last Sunday.
The data for our weekly download chart is collected by TorrentFreak, and is for informational and educational reference only. Currently both DVDrips, DVD Screeners, BDrips and R5 rips are counted.
