First to fall victim to “Jaws” were ‘Life Of Pi’ visual effects team Bill Westenhofer, Guillaume Rocheron, Erik-Jan De Boer and Donald R. Elliott – cut off by the sharky-sound as they thanked friends and relatives for their Oscar win.

The fishy play-off music didn’t seem to go down too well with the Oscars crowd – however the social media reaction declared it the best addition to the ceremony in years.
