85th Academy Awards: Life of Pi's 11 nominations
Posted on: 09:15 PM IST Jan 10, 2013
Hollywood filmmaker Ang Lee, whose India-centric movie 'Life of Pi' opened to hugely positive response, was nominated in 11 categories for the 85th Academy Awards.
From Chinese film 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' to Hollywood masala movie 'Hulk' to 'Brokeback Mountain', Lee has made films on stories set in different time zones and cultures. "Whatever is interesting, I will do it. Right now I can speak and understand Chinese and English. In 'Life Of Pi', there was some Hindi and Tamil, which I don't follow. But I'll go wherever there's a great story to tell. The specific cultural aspect can be overcome. In fact the process of getting over cultural hurdles makes filmmaking very interesting to me," he had said in an interview. Life of Pi was nominated in Best Picture, Best Direction, Adapted Screenplay, Production Design, Cinematography, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Original Score, Original Song, Film Editing and Visual Effects categories.####[View the story ”Oscar Nominations” on Storify]Oscar NominationsOscar NominationsStorified by IBNLive· Thu, Jan 10 2013 07:09:01Stay tuned for the live updates of the nominations of the 85th Academy Awards. #Oscars2013IBNLive MoviesWhich film do you think is going to win this year’s Oscar in the best film category? #Oscars2013IBNLive MoviesThe hopeful filmmakers would be waiting with bated breath for the announcements. #Oscars2013IBNLive MoviesSo, Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone are ready with the nominations.
