    Life of Pi (2012) Gravity (2013) Birdman (2014) The Revenant (2015) La La Land (2016) Roma (2018) 1917(2019) most likely

    This is the number of times Best Cinematography has won Best Director at the Oscars.

    Now I don’t object all these wins to be honest.Yes I would have loved George Miller winning in 2015 more than Innaritu.

    I don’t like this pattern of this Best Director award becoming Best Cinematography 2.0 at Award shows.

    Direction is singular most important individual award on a Award Night but If you are noticing only Cinematography portion then it’s not fine.

    Sure creating marvelous shots is difficult and one hell of a task but that’s Best Cinematography.

    7 out of 10 times isn’t a coincidence.

    Kubrick-Tarkovsky-Scorsese-Bergman-Bresson-Kurosawa

    No otherwise Scorsese would’ve won for 2016’s Silence. Just Kidding. But in all seriousness it’s difficult for people who are not particularly knowledgeable about what directing entails to judge how good directing is. Conversely, anyone can recognise great cinematography which is why I think they tend to go hand-in-hand at the Oscars. The last film without outstanding cinematography to win Best Director was The King’s Speech.

    I guess that depends on your definition of “outstanding”, because THE KING’S SPEECH *was* nominated for Cinematography.

    The last three films to win Best Director without a Cinematography nomination were:

    Scorsese/THE DEPARTED
    Eastwood/MILLION DOLLAR BABY
    Jackson/LOTR:ROTK

    Yeah it was nominated for Cinematography but I meant it ostensibly doesn’t have amazing visuals like the other films that have won Best Director in the last decade.
