    I hope not. Just because you use a long tracking shot doesn’t mean its the best. I’m still in awe of that Macbeth trailer. Or that sand storm in Mad Max Fury Road. Or even the late Andrew Lesnie’s work in The Water Diviner

    Keep an eye out for The Assassin. Ping Bin Lee is a legendary Asian cinematographer who I noticed was at the official Academy screening Q&A on their youtube page, and the trailer seems to emphsaize the meticulous imagery. He can easily get nominated the way martial arts movies like House of Flying Daggers or The Grandmaster did before, both by two Asian auteurs that Hou Hsiao-hsien at least matches in esteem.

    Yep, I’m predicting The Assassin and encourage the rest of you to do the same.

    By the looks of the trailer, Lubezki’s cinematography looks amazing. He’s a lock for a nomination, I just don’t see him winning for a third year in row.  
    I think it’s going to go to Deakins this year. His work on Sicario was some of his best, and while the film has been critically lauded, I don’t think it will do very well in any other categories (even supporting actor). Giving the win to Deakins would be rewarding a legend after many (12!) losses as well as honoring the film as a whole. 

    Predicted nominees:
    Roger Deakins – Sicario (WINNER)
    Emmanuel Lubezki – The Revenant
    John Seale – Mad Max: Fury Road
    Edward Lachmann – Carol
    Janusz Kaminski – Bridge of Spies (pretty ugly work in my opinion, but the academy loves him and Spielberg)

    Spoilers: David Wolski (The Martian),  Robert Richardson (The Hateful Eight), Cary Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation), and Ping Bin Lee (The Assassin) 

    My dream nominee based on the beautiful trailer (and possible actual nominee if the film amazes): Daniel Mindel for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Don’t count out Adam Arkapaw for Macbeth.

    The cinematography and production design is the main aspects you take away after viewing it.

    People… Roger Deakins will never win an Oscar. Just learn to accept it at this rate.

    He can win. I think he just needs to get on a Best Picture-frontrunner. Otherwise, the branch will keep nominating him for everything he does because they like him, and then the academy-wide vote will let him down.

    Sure, he did have “No Country for Old Men,” which won Best Picture, but I don’t think that film was chiefly remembered for its visuals the way films like “Life of Pi,” “Gravity,” and “Birdman” are.

    ^Plus he had 2 noms that year and There Will Be Blood ended up winning. 

    Bridge of Spies cinematography was so gross and over exposed to the point it took me out of the movie. I will be so mad if that gets in over breathtaking movies like Mad Max or Macbeth

    God, how I would love it if the prize went to Edward Lachman for Carol. I’m not predicting it to happen, but man, oh man, would it make me happy. Him or John Seale.

    My initial predictions

    Sicario – Deakins needs to be nominated, and contend seriously for the win, based on THAT sunset shot alone
    The Revenant – Lubezki is well admired by his peers clearly, and the trailer was visually glorious
    Beasts of No Nation – Fukunaga does some seriously sensational work with this, most notably for me, the scene where it all turns red

    The Hateful Eight – like The Revenant, this looks like strong enough work in the trailer to assume it will be great in the film itself
    Macbeth – huge acclaim for the cinematography across the board really. Even if it doesn’t take off elsewhere, here it could get recognition

    My predictions:

    Bridge of Spies- Kaminski reuniting with Spielberg. They love that.
    Mad Max: Fury Road- Even if the film doesn’t get in across the board, the cinematography is flashy enough that I think it’ll make it in here.
    The Martian- Partially wishful thinking. But if they really love it, it should get love in below the line categories like this one.
    The Revenant- Chivo is Chivo. Also, natural lighting.
    Sicario-Even when his films don’t get in, Roger Deakins does.

    Same here, but a different order.

    Not over exposed, just high contrast. Don’t think gross is the right word but the desaturated color grading definitely made for a murky pictur overall, but that’s what they were going for. I like it, but it’s not Kaminski’s best work by a long shot. I too hope that Mad Max gets in but I’m not crossing my fingers on that one. 

    Predictions:
    1. The Revenant
    2. The Hateful Eight
    3. Carol
    4. Sicario
    5. Beasts of No Nation
