    Cold War, The Favourite and Roma had the best cinematography of the year. I'd love Suspiria getting nominated. I didn't care for First Man at all

    The Top5 seems obvious now because First Man is flopping, but... Cold War isn't getting an ASC nomination. Ida was snubbed there and still got the Oscar nom, so that's not the main issue here. What if the fifth nominee at ASC is Rachel Morrison? I mean, will the cinematographers branch snub the first ever Oscar nominated female cinematographer if she gets an ASC nomination for the biggest tech contender of the year in the middle of the Oscar voting? I have a hard time seeing that.

    Is it even the biggest tech contender of the year? The Favourite and Roma seem to be pretty set for a number of technical nominations (and wins) as well, and honestly I think First Man will still get plenty of tech love too. ASIB and Mary Poppins won't leave without a number of tech nods either.

    As for Morrison, I get what you mean but frankly I don't see the cinematographers (either ASC or the Academy branch) suddenly going for a Marvel film just because it's a big contender. Maybe this is my personal opinion speaking but I didn't think the movie looked that different from the other Marvel flicks from a cinematography standpoint - it's still the same digital look and the photography is still mainly functional rather than artistic. Not to mention the heavy (and rather unimpressive) use of CGI to create backgrounds and occasional but rare pretty landscapes. I can't really see the cinematographers going for all that stuff.

    Ida wasn't snubbed by ASC. Maybe I am wrong but didn't Ida won ASC the year after? And because of that was not eligible the year before?

    Ida won the ASC spotlight award the year prior, for films released in 2013, and was nominated for the Oscar for 2014. It was never nominated for the main award.

    If Black Panther is going to get a bunch of tech nominations I think it’s strength can get it in here especially when people are aware first time female nominee Rachel Morrison was the DP.

    Costumes, production design and what else exactly?

    1. "Roma" (Alfonso Cuarón)
    2. "A Star is Born" (Matthew Libatique)
    3. "If Beale Street Could Talk" (James Laxton)
    4. "Cold War" (Łukasz Żal)
    5. "First Man" (Linus Sandgren)

    It's very weird ASIB is not doing well with critics here. Hopefully industry will like its cinematography more
