Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Cinematography

The competition: Anna Karenina (Seamus McGarvey), Django Unchained (Robert Richardson), Claudio Miranda (Life of Pi), Janusz Kaminski (Lincoln), Roger Deakins (Skyfall)

Previous winners: Hugo, Inception, Avatar, Slumdog Millionaire, There Will Be Blood, Pan’s Labyrinth
My winner: Moonrise Kingdom
The facts: Richardson was last year’s winner, for “Hugo,” he won twice before that – for “JFK” and “The Aviator” – and this is his seventh nomination. This is the sixth nomination for Kaminski, who won previously for two Steven Spielberg collaborations, “Schindler’s List” and “Saving Private Ryan.” This is the eighth nomination for Deakins, who has never won, and the second for both McGarvey and Miranda.
Who should win: “Anna Karenina,” though “Skyfall” would be cool too
Who will win: This category is rarely secure, but I think that Life of Pi is the frontrunner.
