Ever heard anyone wax poetic about how much they loved "Life of Pi?" Thought not. Director Ang Lee earns serious points for filming a book that many in Hollywood thought was unfilmable, but "Life of Pi" is more respected than revered. There's usually one film every year that gets a lot of nominations, but wins no Oscars. That's probably this film's fate (although it could win a technical award or two).
