Best Cinematography — 2018 Oscar Picks

Roger Deakins picked up his 13th nomination in this category for his incredible work with Blade Runner 2049 and it might be his year. Also vying for the win is Dunkirk, in part due to their beautiful 66 mm photography.

Dan Laustsen (The Shape of Water), Hoyte van Hoytema (Dunkirk), and Rachel Morrison (Mudbound) all received their first nominations this year, with Morrison also being the first woman in the category. Bruno Delbonnel also claimed his fourth nomination for Darkest Hour.
