that was shot completely with a digital camera?

I just noticed that all the films nominated for best cinematography were all shot on film.

Last year "Apocalypto" was nominated by the ASC. That's the closest so far.

Here's a related topic. I noticed in this year's list of rules of eligibilty that this part was changed:

"All eligible motion pictures, unless otherwise noted, must be publicly exhibited by means of 35mm or 70mm film, or in a 24- or 48-frame progressive scan Digital Cinema format with a minimum projector resolution of 2048 x 1080 pixels, source image format conforming to SMPTE 428-1-2006 D-Cinema Distribution Master – Image Characteristics; image compression (if used) conforming to ISO/IEC 15444-1 (JPEG 2000), and image and sound file formats suitable for exhibition in commercial Digital Cinema sites"

Quite different from the previous year:

"...publicly exhibited by means of 35mm or 70mm film, or in a 24- or 48-frame progressive scan Digital Cinema format (minimum native resolution 1280 by 1024 pixels, with pixel bit depth, color primaries, and image and sound file formats suitable for exhibition in commercial Digital Cinema sites)"

But day exteriors and most interiors were shot on film. The digital was reserved for night exteriors.
