The 84th showing of the Academy Awards will air on ABC on Sunday the 26th of February and we at Geek for E have decided to join in on the fun and give you our predictions of who will win.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two”
“Midnight in Paris”
Denise: If there’s an Academy god, Midnight in Paris will get this one. Three distinct eras, and the detail in each one is amazing. That’s work, people, and it should be recognized. I wouldn’t hate it if War Horse’s beautiful, over-saturated colors and brilliantly fleshed-out WWI nabbed it, though I’m guessing that they’ll get theirs in Best Cinematography.
Tatiana: I’m going to say Midnight in Paris in the hopes that said Academy deity DOES exist.
CINEMATOGRAPHY …the nominations go to:
“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”
“The Tree of Life”
Denise: Aaaaand here we go. War Horse for the win. Though the folks that love The Tree of Life’s wacky acid trip — dinosaurs! lava! Brad Pitt…? — could cause an upset here.
Rock: War Horse, only because its Spielberg and he is a master of camera manipulation.
