Ang Lee Discusses Filming the Unfilmable, the Practicality of 3D, and Winning the Oscar with Tim Squyres and David Magee at 'Life of Pi' Event

Ang Lee – When Ang Lee was awarded with his second Best Director Oscar during the 85th Annual Academy Awards, it marked the end of more than five years of work on "Life of Pi," his 2012 3D adventure epic. With the film taking in almost $600 million worldwide and becoming the most awarded film at this year's ceremony (it won four Oscars), it seems fair to say that the investment paid off. 8 years 5 weeks ago via jetli

Best Picture Nominees 2013: …”inherently thrilling”

ARGO is solid but problematic; Django Unchained is a mess of errant genres; Les Mis is bloated, bombastic and juvenile (which should make it Best Pic frontrunner); and AMOUR is already up for Best Foreign Film so why vote that?

Um...I'm live-blogging the Golden Goldens because Binh told me he doesn't get NBC where he lives. Whatever. Well, we tag-teamed live-blogging the Oscars last year and got a huge traffic boost, so that's my reason doing the same with the Golden Globes this time. Just like last year, it's all a last minute thing.

When I first saw the trailer for Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi,” it seemed like a nice-looking arthouse movie that would do arthouse biz unless it catches on like “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” or “Brokeback Mountain.”

'Skyfall,' 'Best Exotic,' 'Ted' join the usual in ACE Eddie nominations – The American Cinema Editors (ACE) decided there was no rush and chose to hold its announcement for nominations honoring excellence in filmmaking until after the Oscar nominations landed. This despite being ready to announce on Tuesday. I applaud them for that. Just because the Academy says "jump" doesn't mean you have to. 8 years 14 weeks ago via brucelee
