Oscar Nominees: Best Cinematography

My predictions: 4/5, picking “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” over “War Horse”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: The Artist, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, The Tree of Life, War Horse

So despite a strong showing in three categories that it wasn’t necessarily expected to crack, “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” did not make the cut here, though it’s hard to argue with this superb list. While I’ll have my own inclusions to cite next week, these were indisputably five visually beautiful films. With the exception of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” they’re all Best Picture nominees too. This could be anyone’s, though if I had to guess, I’d go with…

My current bet to win: “The Tree of Life”
