I correctly predicted all 5 of these nominees (100%). I’m rearranging them somewhat to reflect War Horse’s poor showing with many of the guilds, although it won the Critic’s Choice in this category, and has many outdoor scenes that may fit with people’s preconceived notions of what cinematography should be. Most importantly, I’m still holding out hope for Emmanuel Lubezki to win.
1. Emmanuel Lubezki for The Tree Of Life (Predicted Winner) (previous rank 1)
4. Guillaume Schiffman for The Artist (previous rank 4)
3. Robert Richardson for Hugo (previous rank 3)
2. Janusz Kaminski for War Horse (previous rank 2)
5. Jeff Cronenweth for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (previous rank 5)
