Oscars: 'Life of Pi' wins for Best Cinematography and Visual Effects
Life Of Pi, the Ang Lee movie that stunned the viewers with its incredible visuals, has rightly clinched two Oscars in relevant categories.

Ang Lee's Life of Pi, a fantasy adventure drama widely shot in India, won the 85th Academy Award for best cinematography and best visual effects here Sunday night.

Claudio Miranda received the cinematography award. It is his first Oscar award, but he had received his first nomination for the 2008 film "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button".

For the visual effects trophy, Bill Westenhofer, Guillaume Rocheron, Erik-Jan De Boer and Donald R. Elliott collected the trophy.

An adaptation of Canadian author Yann Martel's Man Booker Prize-winning eponymous novel, it narrates the journey of an Indian boy who survives a storm.

In the best cinematography category, the film was competing alongside "Anna Karenina" (Seamus McGarvey), Django Unchained (Robert Richardson), Lincoln (Janusz Kaminski) and Skyfall (Roger Deakins).

The films which were in competition with "Life of Pi" in the best visual effects category included The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, "Marvel's The Avengers", "Prometheus" and Snow White and the Huntsman.
