Indian vocalist Bombay Jayashri, who was nominated in the best original song category at the 85th Academy Awards for her track Pi Lullaby from Life of Pi, lost the trophy to British singer Adele, who took home the statuette for Skyfall. However, Life of Pi won the best music - original score award.
Written and sung by Jayashri, Pi Lullaby was also competing with other numbers like Before my time from Chasing Ice (music and lyrics by J. Ralph), Everybody needs a best friend from Ted (music by Walter Murphy; lyrics by Seth MacFarlane) and Suddenly from Les Miserables (music by Claude-Michel Schonberg; lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer and Alain Boublil).
Adele, who performed Skyfall at the glitzy ceremony Sunday night, collected her award with Paul Epworth.
The Oscar award for best music - original score went to Mychael Danna for Life of Pi, about the journey of an Indian boy who survives a storm at sea.
Danna's competitors for the award were "Anna Karenina" (Dario Marianelli), "Argo" (Alexandre Desplat), "Lincoln" (John Williams) and "Skyfall" (Thomas Newman).
