I could kiss you. Agreed with every single thing you said.

My audience applauded and that's when I knew that I just had a different opinion than most people.

Cinematography for Les Mis is So is for Lincoln although I really liked it. I'll replace both with Rises and Moonrise.

Credit to kvz5 from the Oscar thread:

ASC Nominations

Anna Karenina, Seamus McGarvey, ASC, BSC
Les Miserables, Danny Cohen, BSC
Life of Pi, Claudio Miranda, ASC
Lincoln, Janusz Kaminski
Skyfall, Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC


I guess my fanboy dream of the trilogy getting a hat trick of cinematography nom is close to being shattered. Oh well.

Pfsiter won everything for Inception, so I guess they don't feel compelled to award him anything this go round.

Or maybe his cinematography wasn't as good by comparison as some of his previous films, and he just didn't deserve the nomination this time around.

I thought it was his best work with Nolan. Certainly better than Inception, which I didn't think deserved to win the Oscar (Mathew Libatique deserved it for black Swan).

I agree. Inception is a sharp looking film, but Rises is just a behemoth of lighting, composition, and emotionally resonant photography.

Surprised to see no nomination for Mihai Malaimare Jr for the Master either. Another movie that is an absolute triumph of film in an age of quickly dominating digital.

I wonder if PTA might have hit a nerve with the Scientology crowd. I'm not seeing an awful lot of buzz for The Master right now in general. Guess we'll find out tomorrow though.

It's this year's Tree of Life. It's way too unconventional for the guild and the Academy. I wonder about the greater significance of the Master. I wonder if it signifies a transcendence of PTA from conventional narrative and character arcs to more meditative and ethereal, like Malick. If so, this bodes extremely well for me (screw standard narratives, give me Malicky abstractions any day!), but maybe not for a lot of his longtime fans.

He did hit a nerve and he's paying for it.

I've been feeling this for a while now, especially since the Blu Ray/DVD hit for Rises, but I think that sequence at Blackgate prison is the reason the industry/academy were turned off by the film.

It's a bleak ****ing sequence in the film that hits a nerve on both sides.

Exactly.

Django Unchained is NOT a better overall film than the TDKR's.

Sorry...Quentins act is tired.

I really liked Les Mis but the cinematography is quite appalling.

QT's act is tired but I liked DJ a little better than Rises.

I wasn't expecting any big nominations but I'm disappointed it isn't up for Cinematography and SHOCKED that it isn't nominated in Sound Editing.

We'll have to settle for a billion dollar worldwide box office total. Not too shabby considering the odds stacked against Rises.

TDKR wasn't an Oscar worthy film in any capacity of direction, writing or acting.

You say otherwise, you are a blind fan boy. TDK was a medium changing film with one of the best acting roles of the year in it and deserved to get a Best Picture nom and rightfully deserved a Best Supporting Actor win.

TDKR is not type of film.
