  1. The museum sequence had my favorite shots in the film. If the film was in b&w, it would very much like an old 50s noir. The cinematography really benefited from the beautiful sets.

  2. I honestly think that if Lubezki was absent, Yeoman would have had a strong chance of winning. This film won the Costume, Makeup, and Production Design awards, so the Academy really liked the mise en scene or whatever it’s called.

    Deakins maybe could’ve had a strong chance too, but if he’s been overlooked this long, I think he would’ve been overlooked again. He’ll have to do something really out there (something unorthodox like “Birdman”, or vfx-driven like “Life of Pi”, “Gravity”, “Hugo”, and “Avatar”) to win. He keeps sticking to his guns, and while it produces lovely cinematography, it doesn’t seem to fit this trend the category’s in (dazzle over efficiency).
