Oscar Nominees: Best Cinematography

My predictions: 4/5
My ballot: Come back later this week!
The nominees: The Irishman, Joker, The Lighthouse, 1917, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

I would have earned a perfect score in this race had I not decided to swap out The Irishman for “Portrait of a Lady on Fire,” which was entirely shut out. This list here is the same as the ASC lineup, with only “Ford v Ferrari” subbed out for The Lighthouse, earning its only bid. At least that’s a small degree of creative thinking. That said, I can appreciate the visual qualities of Joker, 1917, and even a film I continue to find wildly overrated, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

My current bet to win: It’s a competitive category, but I think 1917 is out front.
