    Cinematography is one of my favorite aspects of film so the awards category for it is one I watch all season long. I wanna hear from everybody…

    Which cinematographers are likely to contend this year?

    Having seen it, I can’t imagine Edward Lachman not getting in for his symbolic and stunning work in Carol. He’s my personal early frontrunner to win.

    I think Roger Deakins is in again this year for Sicario, and if the film gets support from other branches I think he may finally have the support to win.

    Recent foreign film nominees The Grandmaster and Ida give me hope that we’ll see another pop up this year–my guess is that, if so, it would probably be Ping Bin Lee for The Assassin.

    Another trend, although seemingly fractured last year with Interstellar’s lack of a nomination, is the correlation between Visual Effects winners & Cinematography–Avatar, Inception, Hugo, Life of Pi and Gravity all won both awards. That leads me to believe that this year’s likeliest Visual Effects winner, The Martian, will probably make Dariusz Wolski finally a Cinematography nominee. 

    Those are my four frontrunners, with the fifth spot being a little tougher to call. Likely candidates are films with broader support in other branches like Luca Bigazzi for Youth, Alwin Kuchler for Steve Jobs, Janusz Kaminski for Bridge of Spies, Danny Cohen for The Danish Girl or Robert Richardson for The Hateful Eight though I suspect it’s going to be an eighth career nomination for back-to-back winner Emmanuel Lubezki for The Revenant.

    1) The Revenant – Lubezki has been on fire, as of late.
    2) Sicario – Roger Deakins is a favorite within the branch, and he got in for his last collaboration with Villeneuve.
    3) Carol – Portentially big Oscar player and immaculate period piece with Harvey behind it.
    4) The Hateful Eight – Robert Richardson’s last film was Django Unchained (also with Tarantino), which earned him a nomination. Before that, he won an Oscar for Hugo. If The Hateful Eight is at least moderately stylish, I think he could make it.
    5) Mad Max: Fury Road – Part wishful thinking, but Fury Road is a great showcase for John Seale’s work. This is probably some of his showiest work since Cold Mountain, and the acclaim for the film could translate to a lot of nominations in technical categories.

    Current runners-up:
    6) Bridge of Spies
    7) Spectre
    8) The Danish Girl
    9) In the Heart of the Sea
    10) Macbeth

    After Hoyte van Hoytema’s back-to-back snubs (Her, Interstellar), I really hope he gets nominated for Spectre, assuming it’s as visually splendid as its predecessor.

    We got some great contenders. Chivo could strike again for another nod. I’m REALLY hoping for Hoyte von Hoytema for Spectre. John Seale for Mad Max: Fury Road would also be nice. Roger Deakins was nominated for his last collaboration with Denis Villeneuve so lightning could strike twice. Could he finally win this year, though? I certainly hope so.

    Here’s hoping Roger Deakins can finally go home with a trophy. The man is a legend.

    Lubezki already has it in the bag. How can they resist to award the use of natural lighting in The Revenant? Does it get any more pretentious than that?

    You linked to the same thread you commented in so I guess that proves why this new thread was necessary.
