Danny Cohen, The King's Speech
Jeff Cronenweth, The Social Network
Roger Deakins, True Grit
Matthew Libatique, Black Swan
Wally Pfister, Inception
Ok, I honestly would've predicted The Fighter's Hoyt von Hoytema instead of Cohen, so that is a surprise. But not the bad kind! It's a nice surprise, actually, since the cinematography in The King's Speech is actually pretty classy, pretty well-done, pretty top-notch.
This is a pretty strong list, isn't it? Much like the directors, we've got a solid group of master craftsmen in contention. Personally, I feel it's between Deakins and Libatique, and I'm predicting Libatique for the win. Great stuff, Black Swan.
These are almost my five favorites of the year, perhaps replacing "Inception" and "The Social Network" with "Scott Pilgrim" and "127 Hours". But "Black Swan" for the win!
Thanks for keeping us up to date on this Walter.
Can't wait for the Editor's Guild noms!
Yeah, I was surprised that The Fighter wasn't nominated; great work there. Hoping for a Deakins win this year (as always).
