Roger Deakins may not be as famous a name as the A-listers he photographs on film year after year, but you certainly know his work. From “The Shawshank Redemption” (1994) to “Unbroken” (2014) and everything in between, Deakins is one of the most well-respected cinematographers in the biz. But — shockingly — he’s never won an Oscar despite 12 previous nominations.

Will all of that change this year with his new film “Sicario,” Denis Villeneuve‘s hit thriller about the ever-growing war on drugs at the U.S./Mexican border? Revisit all of Deakins’ Oscar bids and discover who edged him out each time by clicking the photo above.

Even though he’s yet to step onto that Oscar podium, Deakins has three American Society of Cinematographers Awards to his name for “Shawshank,” “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (2001) and “Skyfall” (2012).

And while a dozen nominations for Best Cinematography without a win may seem like a lot, it’s actually one behind the current record. Legendary cinematographer George J. Folsey amassed 13 noms and zero victories between 1932 and 1963, the last of which for “The Balcony” (1963).

According to Gold Derby’s Oscar experts drawn from major media outlets, Deakins will be nominated for Oscar #13 this year.
