The Cinematography Guild's Nominees

The American Society of Cinematographers chose the following five films as the best shot of the year.According to TwitterThe Imitation Gameis the odd man out.It was shot by Oscar Faura who is definitely talented (seeThe OrphanageandThe Impossible) but discussions around this film rarely concern themselves with the quality of its cinematography (which can't really be said for the other nominees here).

1 of roughly 1,890 amazing shots in Mr Turner

It does remind slightly of whenThe King's Speechgot that perplexing actual Oscar nomination for Cinematography over at least a dozen (at leastit bears repeating) well shot and more inspiring choices from 2010.Of the ASC nominees only Lubezki has previously won an Oscar (forGravity) and Roger Deakins is of course ever the Bridesmaid,never the Bride (which we used to be able to say about Lubezki).Dick Pope has one previous nomination to his credit (The Illusionsit)

Assuming the Oscar race is between Lubezki and Deakins,who do you think will win?Do you think this will be the Oscar list and if you don't which film with acclaimed cinematography (no matter what one thinks of each film) sneak in?Selma?Interstellar?A Most Violent Year?Wild(interview)?Gone Girl?The Homesman?or something else entirely?My write-in vote is Yorick LeSaux's work onOnly Lovers Left Alive.

P.S.My final Oscar predictions are coming next week.Obviously I need to rethink my chart -way off there!We're just waiting for Oscar nomination balloting to close up shop (which happens tomorrow evening).

NYFF: Mike Leigh and Dick Pope Begin Oscar Preparations with 'Mr Turner'

It wasn't just the obvious reasons relating to being a fan of William Turner that made Mike Leigh want to makeMr.Turner.No,what it essentially boiled down to for the British director and his long-gestating passion project was that,essentially,Turner was a clear-cut case of "a Mike Leigh character".Hearing Leigh describe the famed artist this way actually made me go back and think about the role given that Turner,as portrayed by TimothySpallin hisCannes-winning performance,hardly comes off as from the same working class terrain of Leigh's most famous films likeSecrets and LiesorAnother Year.

I'm still not entirely sure how the statement holds,but the press conference that followed Friday afternoon's screening of Leigh's lush,gorgeously produced 150-minute biopic did allow for some typically keen insight from the man and his cast and crew who will surely be out there campaigning for the film throughout awards season hoping to crash an already strong roster of Britishbiopicswithstyle and grace typical of a Leigh movie.
