A poignant moment gets swallowed by the shark

Artists from the visual effects house Rhythm & Hues won the Oscar for visual effects for "Life of Pi," marking an important moment in the company's tense recent history (it filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this month). But in yet another squirm-inducing moment for the ceremony, the winners were loudly and aggressively played offstage by the "Jaws" theme just as winner Bill Westenhofer attempted to address their company's situation. Even Keith Urban was left shaking his head in the audience. Kevin Winter / Getty Images
