    Silence, La La Land and Arrival are probably “for sures” as of right now. I still think Billy Lynn has a shot despite it’s negative reception and I think Live by Night has a shot because it’s Robert Richardson.

    Since the turn of the century, only 2 Best Picture winners have won Cinematography – Slumdog Millionaire and Birdman.

    For the first four years of this decade, the award went to the film which had the big technical sweep – Inception, Hugo, Life of Pi and Gravity.

    Putting into perspective the kind of film which may end up winning?

    The main contenders:
    La La Land – the front runner

    Jackie – seen contender, strong bet
    Arrival – seen contender, strong bet

    Moonlight – seen contender, if the film is loved by the Academy, they can’t not vote for it here
    Nocturnal Animals – seem contender, mildly in the mix, and is visually stunning

    Silence – unseen, but hard to imagine it not having great cinematography
    Live By Night – unseen, but the trailer looked gorgeously rich

    Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk – seen, is down but not out.
    Passengers – unseen, and could surprise

    Hail, Caesar – will strongly test the admiration of Deakins by this branch. The cinematography is not memorable, and not on par with the likes of Sicario, Skyfall and Prisoners in recent years.

    This is quite a competitive category but they are still very insular. So with that in mind, I have predicted:

    La La Land (Linus Sandgren 0 Oscar nom)
    Arrival (Bradford Young 0 Oscar nom)
    Silence (Rodrigo Prieto 1 Oscar Nom)
    Live By Night (Robert Richardson 3 Oscars wins, 9 Oscar noms)
    Hail Caesar (Roger Deakins 13 Oscar noms)

    There is already an older thread discussing best cinematography, so it may be good to combine these predictions there:

    Roger Deakins.

    Yes, but it’s not like he automatically gets nominated for everything he does.

    No I’m saying that’s why he’s being considered.

    The jungle book could be a dark horse if it gets a nom and does well with noms overall.
