1917 has been added to the list of nominations for the best cinematography when there is less than a week left for Oscars evening.
Initially, the movie received reviews from big publishing houses that said that 1917 was like a video game. Though later there have been discussions by the Twitteratis on whether that connection even makes sense or not.
Talking about cinematography, Roger Deakins shows plays with light and shadow in the movie with expertise. But along with the light, it is his technical artistry that cannot be missed while watching the film 1917.
His work in the film that builds the environment of urgency perfectly might be the reason behind getting an award in this category if they do that is.
But there is quite a chance for 1917 to receive it as the Oscars guild has been awarding this quality from the last few years.
Just how Children of Men and Birdman got awarded in the previous years. For Children of Men, it was Emmanuel Lubezki and Alfonso Cuarón who received the awards for the Best Cinematography while it was Alejandro G. Iñárritu who got credited as the best cinematographer of the year for his work in Birdman.
Although 1917 has high chances of winning this big in the cinematography category, the film has been nominated in 10 other categories for the Oscars 2020.
The nominations include Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, Best Sound Editing, Best Visual Effects, and a few more technical categories.
1917 exceeded everyone’s expectations at the Golden Globes and Bafta. While the film was first being credited for one continuous shot but not the technical artistry.
The awards night will show how much the artistry of the movie gets appreciated.
The 92nd Academy Awards is all set to be held on the 9th of February, 2020 which is a Sunday. The Oscar Awards show would be live on television across 225 countries 6:30 pm ET and 3:30 pm PT.
