I hope for Mr. Deakins, except for the last images of the close-ups on the horse riding it was perfect to my taste!

For whom are you rooting, Tim?


I've been boosting "Inception" all over the place. I feel Pfeister got robbed in '08, and everyone got robbed in '09. So I guess I am handing out the Best Cinematography nod as a consolation prize myself this year.

Then again, "Inception" is one of the few I saw on the big screen this year that is nominated. It really was beautifully photographed and composed.

Yeah money! Who bet you $100 on the results of the Oscar for Cinematography, Big A, Tom? And "Inception" is on a run here, with best VFX with the old-school 2001-esque practical spinning sets.


Someone on the West Coast do a line of coke with a champagne cocktail to wash it all down for me. I'm all smiles here :-D

Perhaps more interesting is that the Spirit Award for best cinematography in an independent movie also went to something shot on film, "Black Swan."

I thought it should've gone to either True Grit or Black Swan. Inception had great cinematography, but I don't think it topped those two

i totally agree with you. I was also guessing for True Grit and Black Swan. I wanted Deakins to win it. I was absolutely sure he was going to go for it. It was really a masterpiece what he did on True Grit. Beside, he should have won the Oscar long time ago. I never looked to Inception though it was beautifully shot but it was absolutely Deakins who had done a better job. I was afraid all the time that Matthew would take the award from Deakins because he did an amazing job with Black Swan and it was beautiful... but I never thought for a second it would have gone to Pfister... In my mind the fight for the award was between Deakins and Matthew... I was totally sad...

Both Jeff Cronenweth and Danny Cohen did a great job this year.
