84th Oscar Cinematography Updates (2011-2012 Awards Season) (7/18/11)

Here are today’s rankings for the 84th Oscar Cinematography race, with previous ranking shown in parenthesis after each entry.

Probably the most difficult decision for me was placing Cave Of Forgotten Dreams above Hugo for the nomination. The combination of an early release date with a documentary genre makes it the most likely to be left out, but I do remember people raving about the visuals in this movie, so perhaps the cinematography branch will appreciate it. In any event, I know it is a risky bet, and that its chances might actually be better if cinematography had a short list like some of the other technical categories, but I’ve placed it here for now as the wild card, with Hugo in the very close 6th position.

1. Emmanuel Lubezki for The Tree Of Life (Predicted Winner) (previous rank 1)
