Oscar Nominees: Best Cinematography

My predictions: 4/5
My ballot: Coming soon!
The nominees: Dune, Nightmare Alley, The Power of the Dog, The Tragedy of Macbeth, West Side Story

This isn’t a shock. I had thought that the great work on “Belfast” (watch my interview with Haris Zambarloukos) would translate from the American Society of Cinematographers list while Nightmare Alley would fall out in favor of West Side Story, but both of the latter films made the list. This is exceptional work all throughout this category, with Dune, The Power of the Dog, and The Tragedy of Macbeth all excellent choices. I was fortunate to see all five of these films in a theater, though I think they would work well on a smaller screen too.

My current bet to win: I think it’s going to Dune, but it could be any of these.
