Director Alfonso Cuarón (Roma) should be set to make history as the first director to win the cinematography Oscar for shooting his own film.
The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) opted for Cold War‘s Łukasz Żal and there is a slight chance he could spoil. The two black and white foreign language films are going head to head in three categories but prevailing wisdom puts Roma and Cuarón ahead.
|1. ROMA – Alfonso Cuarón (BAFTA, BFCA)|
|2. COLD WAR – Łukasz Żal (ASC)|
|3. THE FAVOURITE – Robbie Ryan|
|4. A STAR IS BORN – Matthew Libatique|
|5. NEVER LOOK AWAY – Caleb Deschanel|
|ASC – American Society of Cinematographers|
|BAFTA – British Film Academy Awards|
|BFCA – Broadcast Film Critics Association (Critics Choice)|
