This is the third straight win for the film as SS Rajamouli has already been named the Best Director at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, and RRR was named the Best International Picture at the Atlanta Film Critics Circle Awards. These victories have strengthened the film’s chances of earning multiple nominations at the Academy Awards next year.
In July earlier this year, RRR was named the runner-up at the Hollywood Critics Association Mid-season awards losing out to Everything Everywhere All At Once. However, the Indian film defeated Hollywood heavyweights like The Batman and Top Gun: Maverick to win the second-best title.
