Immersed in Oscars 2013: Life of Pi Rules Tech Noms

Life of Pi not only grabbed 11 nominations (second only to Lincoln’s 12), including best picture, but Ang Lee’s spiritual epic also dominated the tech categories with eight nods for cinematography, production design, editing, VFX, sound editing and mixing, original score, and original song — “Pi’s Lullaby.”
