Pondering a Solution to the "Did Avatar Deserve Best Cinematography" Debate
Posted 08 March 2010 - 02:15 PM
So why not compromise? Remember, at one time there were separate awards for black-and-white and colour cinematography, because there was a recognized difference between the two mediums that was deemed worthy of distinction.
If indeed Avatar proves to be a trendsetter (as opposed to a one off that only spawns a small group of followers, like 3D), why not have separate awards? You could have one for Cinematography in a film comprised of less than XX percent CG, and for films comprising more than XX percent? This would resolve the debate, and open up new films (like some of Pixars recent efforts) that, while largely generated by computer, are still worthy of consideration for their visual choices and style.
