Anthony Dod Mantle won the Oscar for best cinematography for his work in the critically acclaimed film Slumdog Millionaire .
From slums of Mumbai to a glitzy quiz show studio, Mantle handled his camera deftly, and brought forth the misery, pain, joy and celebration of the protagonists on screen in a manner that touched many hearts.
"I could thank thousand of people, which I can't... I really thank Academy for opening this door. I thank my wife, my mom-pa, my brother and sister, Danny (Boyle), and the people who helped me in the movie," Mantle said while receiving the award.
