Composer Mychael Danna was recognised for his work on the soundtrack for Ang Lee’s "Life of Pi" at the recent Golden Globe awards, where the film received the award for "Best Original Score".
The movie, which is based on Yann Martel’s book of the same name, tells the story of Piscine Molitor Patel, a young boy who grew up in Pondicherry, South India, and his experience when he is lost at sea with only a tiger for company. Award-winning director Ang Lee’s film was nominated for three Golden Globes but only picked up one in the end. Still, award season has only just begun, and it’s likely that the visually dazzling film will pick up more in the coming months.
Along with director Ang Lee and the film’s lead Suraj Sharma, Tabu (who play’s Pi’s mother in the film) also attended the ceremony. The actress – who has starred in a number of Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films – looked gorgeous in a resplendent red Abu-Sandeep sari, with exquisite mirror work on both the border and dazzling blouse.
Our hopes are on Bombay Jayashri’s song "Pi’s Lullaby" picking up the Academy Award for "Best Original Song", though the song is up against tough competition, including Adele’s "Skyfall". Furthermore, the originality of the Tamil song has been questioned recently, which could prove troublesome. Click here to read more about the claim that the song is not entirely original.
