As we move closer towards the 85th Annual Academy Awards, a number of other awards ceremonies are taking place to honor the best of moviemaking in 2012.  One such ceremony is the 3D Creative Arts Awards which were held Wednesday night, and director Ang Lee’s Life of Pi swept a number of categories including Best Live-Action 3D Feature and 3D Sequence/Moment of the Year for the fish flying over the boat scene.  The ambitious adaptation is coming off a strong showing at the Visual Effects Society Awards earlier this week, and looks to be a solid contender at the Oscars in the technical categories.

Elsewhere at the 3D Creative Arts Awards, Brave was named Best Animated 3D feature, The Avengers won Best Use of 2D to 3D Conversion, and Transformers: The Ride won Themed Attraction.  Hit the jump for the full list of winners.
