The Oscar for Best Cinematography is awarded to a particular film for the finest artistic and technical decisions in regards to the creation of the moving images on the screen. The award is presented to the Director of Photography (Cinematographer) from the film. Including this year’s nominations, these five nominees have combined for 37 Best Cinematography nominations, including 6 wins. Additionally, The Revenant‘s Emmanuel Lubezki is hoping for a three-peat at this year’s ceremony—”Chivo” Lubezki has taken home the Oscar for Best Cinematography the previous two years (Gravity and Birdman). The following is my Oscars ballot for this category, Best Cinematography:

John SealeWINNER: Mad Max: Fury Road (John Seale)

  1. The Revenant (Emmanuel Lubezki)
  1. Sicario (Roger Deakins)
  1. The Hateful Eight (Robert Richardson)
  1. Carol (Ed Lachman)
