    No Interstellar is surprising, I can see these five being your Best Cinematography line-up at the Oscars. Harvey is going all out for The Imitation Game.

    Gone Girl snub is HUGE. Can’t believe it. And The Imitation Game coming for that multiple nominations at the Oscars.

    Gone Girl was never in the running for this. Like in most Fincher films, there was nothing special about its cinematography.

    I think David Fincher films usually have excellent cinematography, but I actively disliked that aspect of “Gone Girl”. I’m glad it didn’t get in.

    This shows that “The Imitation Game” might be bigger at the Oscars than previously estimated.

    Also, “Interstellar” might fare worse than anticipated.

    Its going to be a regular occurence to Nolan hipsters to be disapointed around Oscar time. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy most of his movies, but he’s the creative darling that can do no wrong.

    I was really hoping that Nightcrawler would pick up a really shocking nomination here, but at least Grand Budapest got in. This is still absolutely Birdman’s to lose.

    Imitation Game is proving to be insanely strong. A DGA nod might make me think it’s the BP frontrunner. Great to see Grand Budapest making it in literally everywhere so far. 

    Such a shame that none of Bradford Young’s exquisite work this year has been recognized.

    Snubs for the very well-respected Hoyte van Hoytema and Jeff Cronenweth are quite surprising. I think Gone Girl can still make it at the Oscars simply because it’s been making it everywhere else, but Interstellar seems done. But which one misses at the Oscars for it to get in?

    Birdman and Unbroken are probably locked. Imitation Game and Grand Budapest are becoming BP favorites, so they’re probably in too. I’ve yet to see Mr. Turner, but it seems very strong in this category and Dick Pope is very well respected. Really a tough choice.

    I’m just glad The Theory of Everything hasn’t ridiculously become a contender in this race like it has in every other race it’s eligible for.

    Tough blows for both Bradford Young and Robert Elswit. No reason at all for something like “The Imitation Game” to be here instead of those and others. Always thrilled for recognition for Emmanuel Lubeski and Roger Deakins, two uber masters of their craft.

    Some interesting stats I managed to find regarding the correlation between ASC nods and Oscar nominations for Cinematography:

    Years where ASC foretold all five nominees:
    1996 (though ASC had six nominees)
    2007
    2010
    2013 (though ASC had seven nominees)

    Years where they shared four nominees:
    1986
    1988
    1990
    1991
    1993
    1994
    1997
    1998 
    1999
    2000
    2001
    2002
    2005
    2008
    2009
    2011
    2012

    Years where Three Matched:
    1987
    1989
    1992
    2003
    2004
    2006

    Two Matched:
    1995 (and, for further dissonance, ASC had six nominees, meaning four were left off)

    I think David Fincher films usually have excellent cinematography

    I’m a huge David Fincher fan and that’s a very common misconception. His movies do indeed have a trademark editing and lighting which everyone can recognize, but those are 2 very distinct aspects from cinematography.

    Halo_Insider, do you have the stats of any times the Oscar winner didn’t get a nomination here? I’m guessing it hasn’t happened a lot.

    Huge sigh of relief for Mr. Turner – after ADG snub I was getting concerned. The Imitation Game is the least deserving ASC nominee since Les Misérables, whose cinematography was mostly dreadful, although I reckon it was more Tom Hooper’s fault than DP Danny Cohen’s. Like that film, I expect Imitation Game’s cinematography might ultimately miss out on an Oscar nom. Grand Budapest is a happy surprise (though not that surprising).

    Glory(1989) and Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) are the only 2 Best CInematography Oscar Winners who didn’t receive an ASC nomination

    Halo_Insider, do you have the stats of any times the Oscar winner didn’t get a nomination here? I’m guessing it hasn’t happened a lot.

    I still have Nightcrawler in after 3 and a half months. Can’t take it out. This been a longshot of mine and I can’t take it out.
