Life of Pi Oscars 2013: Why Ang Lee's Film Could Win Big

Life of Pi has been somewhat under the radar in the lead up to the Oscars chats but it is highly possible that it comes out as the biggest winner of the night. 

The film was nominated for 11 awards, runner-up to the night's biggest nominee, Lincoln, sitting pretty with 12. While I think Lincoln will get a relatively short shrift, I have high hopes for Life of Pi. 

I'm predicting four wins for Life of Pi in the following categories: 

Best Director
Best Visual Effects
Best Cinematography
Best Original Score

We'll find out tomorrow night how those predictions fair.
