The 2013 Academy Award® best picture nominees include six movies that were shot on Kodak film: Argo, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, Django Unchained, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and Les Miserable.


In the 84-year history of Oscar®, no Academy Award®-winning best picture has ever been made without motion picture film.


"We congratulate all of the 2013 nominees for their remarkable achievements,” says Andrew Evenski, president and general manager of Kodak’s Entertainment and Commercial Films Group. “We are honored that so many talented filmmakers continue to choose Kodak technology to tell their stories
and create extraordinary images.” 


Movies made on Kodak film received a total of 56 nominations. In the four acting categories, an overwhelming majority (16 of 20) of the nominated performances were captured on motion picture film.
Additionally, three of the five nominees for best cinematography relied on Kodak film to create their compelling imagery, as did three of the five directors acknowledged in their category.


Evenski also notes that Kodak is still making billions of feet of film. “Many of those reels will be loaded into cameras that are capturing movies that will contend for Academy Awards in 2014.”


Kodak’s Entertainment Imaging Division is the world-class leader in providing film, digital and hybrid motion imaging products, services, and technology for the professional motion picture and exhibition industries.

True. But for better or worse, the writing is on the wall.

Hugo won best cinematography in 2012 with digital origination, and before that, Avatar won in 2010, and "best cinematography" is arguably more intimately tied to capture media and overall cinematic look than "best picture", which is an amalgam of story, acting, and (typically) perceived importance.

It sounds weird, like motion picture film must prove something to anyone. It's really not. Film was a golden king of Rome for more than a century and still very much remains at that position in eyes of many people in Hollywood and rest of the world. Yes, digital is rapidly catching up in visual quality, so what? If anything, Kodak really should be more concerned about their obscenely overpaid executives, R&D work, preserving the legacy color science and archiving, than fancy (and arguably useless) marketing. That's just my little opinion, of course. Fanboys shall feel free to bash it.
