As you probably know, this years Academy Awards nominations has been announced for a couple of weeks ago (http://www.imdb.com/...rto/2009/oscars)
The five nominees for "Best Cinematography" are:
Changeling (2008): Tom Stern
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008): Claudio Miranda
The Dark Knight (2008): Wally Pfister
The Reader (2008): Roger Deakins, Chris Menges
Slumdog Millionaire (2008): Anthony Dod Mantle
In desperation of trying to see all the movies, before the show goes off, I have tried to give my own opinion on who will win this prestigious award will go to.
Without any doubt, they are all great nominees although, I think Wally Pfister has a great chance with "The Dark Knight". Also Anthony Dod Mantle's work on Slumdog Millionaires is defently worth winning an oscar. It's rare thing to see Anthony Dod Mantle not working on the digital media, but on 35mm instead.
I think it's pity because I am pretty sure that Roger Deakins will have to be watching, somebody else getting getting statue, as he did the last 6 times he went to the oscars. Maybe he should have been nominated for Revolutionary Road instead...then he might had a better chance.
Anyway, who do you think, this years Cinematography oscar award will go to?
