Stunning new stills from ‘Unbroken’ by 11-time Oscar nominee Roger Deakins

We’ve got some new (and a few previously seen) stills from Angelina Jolie’s Oscar hopeful Unbroken for you, featuring arguably some of Roger Deakin’s best work ever. The cinematographer has been nominated 11 times for the Oscar (including dual nominations in 2008 for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Best Picture winner No Country for Old Men) but, amazingly, has never won. What we’re seeing in Unbroken though is uncharted territory for him. While he’s always been a master of color (or lack of), lighting and mood there is a scope to his work here that could very well bring him his first Oscar.

Whether it’s an intimate close-up, a wide shot of Jack O’Connell, Finn Wittrock and Domhnall Gleeson lost at sea or a perfectly captured moment of sunset Deakins looks to have hit a sweet spot of traditional Oscar-y work and staying true to his own vision.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
