my ballot

Patricia Norris
6th  nomination
12 YEARS A SLAVE

INTERVIEW

Michael Wilkinson
FIRST NOMINATION!
AMERICAN HUSTLE

 

Catherine Martin
3rd nom | 1 win
*in this category*
THE GREAT GATSBY

William Chang
FIRST NOMINATION!
GRANDMASTER

Michael O'Connor
3rd nom| 1 win
THE INVISIBLE WOMAN

INTERVIEW

Period detail, believable wear and tear and socioeconomic disparities, unfussy except when it needs to be  plunging necklines (on men and women), super sexy stars, fun textures and period horrors  catherine martin always seems to be the biggest star of baz luhrmann productions, yes?   it's not just black stylish fighting clothes but those furs framing Zhang Ziyi's beauty and the period glamour socioeconomic disparities, fussy bonnets, and dresses so heavy certain women are stationary
In the Dread Sixth Spot? My guess is that was Daniel Orlandi for Saving Mr Banks. But it could have been Ruth Carter (The Butler) or Trish Summerville (Hunger Games) or even  Kurt & Bart (Dallas Buyers Club) since their film is in races you wouldn't expect it to be in
 

 

CINEMATOGRAPHY NOMINEES

will / should win: Gravity
could upset: Inside Llewyn Davis... but not really
my ballot 

Emmanuelle Lubeszki will finally get the Oscar he's long since deserved (pity that that would have to happen only now because of Oscar's new understanding of cinematography as a cgi accessory

Emmanuel Lubezki
6th nomination
GRAVITY

many critics prizes & BFCA & ASC nomination

Bruno Delbonnel
4th nomination
INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS 

some critics prizes + BFCA & ASC & SPIRIT nominations

Roger Deakins
11th  nomination
PRISONERS 

BFCA & ASC nomination

Phedon Papamichael
FIRST NOMINATION!
NEBRASKA

ASC nomination

Phillipe LeSourd
FIRST NOMINATION!
THE GRANDMASTER
ASC nomination

 

 this category now equals visual effects (they go together every year. sigh) people really dig its color palette but it looks super processed to me  deakins is a legend and he STILL hasn't won. what will it take?   candlelight and natural light witness the atrocities. richly filmed   wong kar wai movies love to indulge their dps
snubs... Sean Bobbitt was a horrific omission for the evocatively lit 12 Years a Slave. I also weep for Hoyt Van Hoytema (Her) because seriously, what does he have to do to get attention? Always brilliant.

BFCA & ADG nomination 

 Judy Becker
FIRST NOMINATION!
AMERICAN HUSTLE

ADG nomination 

the interiors of the ships, Sandra in the womb and what not. Can it win in a conflagration of 'the whole movie looks great' fever? I suspect she may snag "The Moulin Rouge categories" again... at least for noms A wonderful surprise nominee. So deserving but they often neglect sci-fi that's believably merely heightened now He does ultra specific funny work for Wes Anderson but shines in this new austere challenge Surely it can't be nominated in every category (though i'm betting big on it)
In the dread sixth spot?
I assume that was Dan Hennah for The Hobbit, the first of the Middle Earth Peter Jackson films to miss in this category despite BFCA & ADG nods.

Jean Marc Vallée & Martin Pensa
FIRST NOMINATIONS!
DALLAS BUYERS CLUB

         
Just Missed? I'm a bit surprised that RUSH didn't make it since that team has often been nominated and people liked its editing. But the movie ran out of awards steam at just the wrong moment. Also I thought that the hero worship for THE WOLF OF WALL STREET's Thelma Schoonmaker would help her in but I was mistaken.
