2014 Oscar Predictions: Best Cinematography

Will Roger Deakins finally lose his title as Oscars biggest loser in the Best Cinematography category?

Will Roger Deakins finally lose his title as Oscars biggest loser in the Best Cinematography category?

I think that many pundits are overestimated that lock that Emmanuel Lubezki for “Gravity” is in this race. While I agree that he is pretty much the frontrunner, I do think that there is room for an upset.

There are two films that I think voters can rally around. The first is Bruno Delbonnel for “Inside Llewyn Davis”, whose film was egregiously snubbed across the board. If voters are displeased with the lack of nominations for the film, this could be the category that they reward it.

The other is Roger Deakins for “Prisoners”, who is the biggest loser of this category, could finally get his due. It is a situation similar to last year. The CGI-heavy film (“Life of Pi”), compared to the smaller more art house cinematography (“Skyfall”). He has also been nominated 11 other times, so voters may just give it to him as a career win.

Like I said, “Gravity” is the undisputed frontrunner, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was an upset.

Check out my predictions below and all my Oscar predictions here!

Will Win: Emmanuel Lubezki, “Gravity”
Could Win: Bruno Delbonnel, “Inside Llewyn Davis”
Should Win: Bruno Delbonnel, “Inside Llewyn Davis”
Should have been nominated: Sean Bobbitt, “12 Years a Slave” (It was a no brainer. It is an absolutely gorgeously captured film, it’s snub was terrible.)
