Well, today's Oscar nominations sure have been a mixed blessing. Very glad to see Cuarón, O. Russell, McQueen and Scorsese ( :) ) nominated for directing; Bale, Dern, DiCaprio, Ejiofor, McConaughey, Adams, Blanchett, Bullock, Dench, Abdi, Cooper, Fassbender (YAY!!), Hill, Leto, Hawkins, Lawrence, Squibb and Nyong'o all get nominated for acting; Eric Warren Singer, Woody Allen, Spike Jonze, John Ridley, Richard Linklater and Terence Winter all nominated for screenplay; Frozen and The Wind Rises (Double YAY!) nominated for Animated Film; Her and Gravity for Best Original Score; and Roger Deakins for Cinematography. A lot of other good nominations, I'm sure, but let us not forget the snubs and terrible nominations as well. Because, it wouldn't be the Academy Award nominations now would it? Snubbed this year was Inside Llewyn Davis, Before Midnight, Blue is the Warmest Color, The World's End, Don Jon, All Is Lost, Rush, Prisoners, The Place Beyond The Pines and Fruitvale Station all for major nominations (N ...
Roger Deakins received his 10th for Prisoners. He'll lose to Emmanuel Lubezki for Gravity, keeping him winless.
Also if Emmanuel Lubezki AND Roger Deakins both lose this year, I'm convinced the Academy is rigged and these two are cursed for life.
It's the night before Oscar Nomination Thursday and I'm awake, watching tennis, finalizing my predictions to see how many I can correctly guess. This is the 4th year in a row that I've predicted the nominations. Last years accuracy rate was 69%; here's striving for 75%+ today! I always predict a full 10 films for Best Picture and I'd LOVE for there to be 10 nominations but, my best guess is that there will be 8. Sorry "Saving Mr. Banks" and "Inside Llewyn Davis", just don't think you'll make that cut. It would be great to see an outsider like "Lone Survivor" or "Short Term 12" make it - wishful thinking! The only upsets I'm relatively confident about are: 1. Spike Jonze for Best Director 2. Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Actor bumping Robert Redford 3. Amy Adams for Best Actress bumping Meryl Streep If there's one prediction I hope comes true the most, it's Roger Deakins for Best Cinematography. I don't think he's heavily favored but it's the only category where I let my heart trump my brain. And if the ...
Prisoners is a 2013 American thriller film directed by Denis Villeneuve, with cinematography by Roger Deakins. The film has an ensemble cast including Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, and Paul Dano. The plot focuses on the abduction of two young girls in Pennsylvania and the resulting search to find them.
Just finished 2 weeks on set filming "Unbroken", based on the book by Laura Hillenbrand, a true story about Louis Zamperini an Olympic runner who wound up in a Japanese POW camp in WWII. Turning up for work everyday to see Angelina Jolie directing and Roger Deakins cinema photographer was a dream come true. Hollywood on the Gold Coast! Back to my day job, Quest Marine.
O Brother Where Art Thou from the Coen Brothers starring George Clooney, Holly Hunter and shot by Roger Deakins
Prisoners (3.5 stars) - intense, dark and brooding drama with powerhouse turns from Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman. A predominantly male movie the likes of Viola Davis and Maria Bello are tragically sidelined (Maria Bello spends most of the film in bed). There are some gaping plot halls and odd twists of characterisation but Canadian director Denis Villeneuve has an eye for a great shot (albeit aded by the supreme photography of Roger Deakins) and an economical and measured handling of each scene to create a sparse and gloomy environment that leads into a dark hole of psychological terror.
has just seen "Prisoners" and it is a powerful and engaging crime drama. "Prisoners" is successful due to it's impressive cast, great direction and cinematography. Director Denis Villeneuve does an amazing job keeping the audience engaged during it's lengthy runtime(146 minutes) and there is not a single boring moment. He accomplishes what few directors do in this genre. Villeneuve truly makes this film a character study and instead of giving everything to us all at once, he makes a slow burning emotional drama. Aaron Guzikowski's screenplay is well written because he does not focus on one character entirely. He makes this an ensemble piece and he shows how the events affect each of the main characters. This film is captured beautifully onscreen by cinematographer Roger Deakins. The cinematography is somber and depressing in certain scenes and he truly captures the tone of the film. However "Prisoners" would not be what it is without it's impressive cast. Hugh Jackman gives an emotionally gut wrenching pe ...
Thoughts on PRISONERS: I never thought I'd say this, but Paul Dano actually gave a good, understated performance--in a role that would have been easy to badly overplay, no less. And Melissa Leo, despite some twists that may or may not undermine her character (I still haven't decided) is just as good, and probably better, than she was in THE FIGHTER. Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal are both very strong as well. As for the film itself...it's rough. 158 minutes, and they don't fly by. That's not a bad thing, mind you--the time is used well, to enhance the sense of place (blue-collar suburbia), to develop the story, and to give the characters some room to breathe. Which is good, because they do some pretty horrible things. Kudos to director Denis Villeneuve and Roger Deakins, who doesn't match his brilliant cinematography for SKYFALL, but still makes a good-looking movie. Aaron Guzikowski's script is often superb, but in the home stretch some of the twists feel kind of predictable and, in this realistic cont ...
Prisoners was an incredible film, in every sense. Think Zodiac but with a more emotional core. Fans of the cinema, especially those who are into crime thrillers/mysteries will love this one. Also, calling it now -- Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal will be nominated for Oscars (and perhaps Roger Deakins for cinematography; the man deserves it).

Roger Deakins on how to Break In as a Cinematographer
What a year. There were so many great movies in 2012 that I had a lot of trouble narrowing it down to just five, but I feel like all of these films will endure. We are lucky to get good movies, but if a movie has staying power, that's truly special. I want movies that we'll be able to enjoy 20 years from now, and 2012 gave us an uncanny amount of memorable cinematic experiences. We were treated to new films by several of the best filmmakers. Paul Thomas Anderson delivered his follow-up to 2007's There Will Be Blood, Martin McDonagh's sophomore effort proved to be even crazier than his debut, and Joss Whedon gave us the rock 'n' roll anti-thesis to Nolan's Dark Knight gloom-and-doom. We even got to see a Bond flick through the lens of Roger Deakins. What more can you ask for? Honorable mentions: The Master, Killer Joe, Seven Psychopaths, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Bernie, Killing Them Softly, Dredd, The Avengers, The Raid, Skyfall 5. The Cabin in the Woods makes big promises early on and ...
Life of Pi is one of the best movies I've ever seen, but I find it hard to digest Life of Pi's Best Cinematography win when everything was shot so literally entire compositions could be reworked in post. The VFX win is completely warranted, but Roger Deakins has been nominated ten times for cinematography, Skyfall was absolutely beautiful, yet he lost to a blue screen.
Roger Deakins and Oscar can't get together. Deakins, one of the most acclaimed cinematographers of the modern era, lost in the Best Cinematography category to "Life of Pi" cinematographer Claudio Miranda at the 85th annual Academy Awards.
The Oscars continue to evade the legendary Roger Deakins. way way overdue. 10 Noms and no wins! was a promo reel for Arri Alexa!
Overall I am pretty satisfied with this year's Oscars. This year's nominations were pretty diverse and thus made it a bit more difficult to predict what films/which people would win. Alhough I wanted Jessica Chastain to win I am really happy that Jennifer Lawrence won; she is awesome in Silver Linings Playbook and totally deserves it. It's still a shame that the two best directors (Ben Affleck & Kathryn Bigelow) this year weren't even nominated but I'm happy to see the great Ang Lee win his second statuette in this category (Brokeback Mountain) rather than seeing Spielberg win his third. Speaking of three's, I am really happy to and very unsurprised to see my favorite actor Daniel Day-Lewis win it again (My Left Foot; There Will Be Blood); the man is always amazing. And even though he was snubbed, I'm happy to see Argo win the big awards it was nominated in; it's deserving of the top prize. The only disappointment though was that Roger Deakins (Skyfall) once again goes home empty-handed for his work as ci ...
The Oscars make me feel like a pretty girl in an abusive relationship every year. Maybe next year, Roger Deakins, maybe next year.
Roger Deakins is now 0/10 for Best Cinematography nominations. He's been shut out more often than Fred Flinstone.

Roger Deakins, for crying out loud, I love you if it counts for anything.
Top 5 Films Seeing as the Oscars are happening tomorrow, I thought it was about time to weigh in on my own picks for the year in films, so I at least have 24 hrs before my opinion is completely irrelevant. Honorable - Skyfall The latest in a long line of James Bond films, Skyfall had the right mix of elements -- great direction from Sam Mendez, stunning cinematography by Roger Deakins, and stand up performances by Judi Dench and Javier Barden -- to make it more than just another James Bond film. Added to this is the intrigue brought into the film by not only exploring aspects of the 007 mythology that hadn’t really been touched before (a look at an aging Bond and a window into his past) but tying it more closely to its history than its previous Daniel Craig installments. This is an action film that reaches a higher level of storytelling. Les Miserables Like most fans of the musical, I thoroughly enjoyed Tom Hooper’s adaptation of the long running show. It’s epic, it’s a little too big ...
Without fanfare, here are my prognostications for the 85th Academy Awards! Shorts First: No long wait here. “Curfew” for Live, “Paperman” for Animated, though my personal favorite in Animated was “Adam and Dog”. “Paperman” just fits more in line with what those voters have recently picked. Documentary Short will be “Open Heart”, again because that’s what the Academy will like, though I enjoyed “Kings Point”. Visual Effects without question to the seamless “Life of Pi”. Amazing effects. Where does the camera end, and the computer begin? Sound categories: Mixing = “Les Mis”, Editing = “Zero Dark Thirty”. Always go with a war story or whatever’s closest to it in picking Sound Editing. The Academy seems impressed with bullet and bomb sounds. Cinematography is tight. Personally, I would vote for Roger Deakins/”Skyfall” who’s been nominated 9 times without winning, but I think “Life of Pi” will carry this too. I think “Pi” will do well under the ...
Oscar voting officially closed. You'd be wise to mark *these names down for wins- *Anne Hathaway -best supporting actress *Jennifer Lawrence- Best Actress Supporting Actor- WAY too close to call. Biggest surprise of the night IMO *DDL- Best Actor *Argo -Best Picture Director- is WIDE OPEN Ben Affleck was not nominated and everyone is predicting Argo to win Best Picture, a film hasn't won best picture w/out a directing nomination since Driving Miss Daisy in '89. Safe bet is on Spielberg to win, but I'm still hoping for David O Russell to win for SLP, but Ang Lee can pull it out for LoP. Best Foreign Language film will be *Amour, Academy loved it enough to nominate it for best picture as well as best foreign film. Best Cinematography- My heart says Roger Deakins will win for Skyfall (it's his 10th nomination & 0 wins.) But my head knows they'll give it to "Life of Pi." Anna Karenina -Best Costume Design (I want to give this to Les Mis so bad, but the Academy loves the period pieces of Anna) Orig. screenplay ...
Are you rooting for anyone in particular on Oscar Sunday? I know I am! First, John Williams. I know he has five Oscars and has been nominated 45 times... but his score for Lincoln needs to win! He's 80, and who knows how much longer we're going to have his amazing talents? Rooting for him to win one more Oscar. Also rooting for Roger Deakins to win for best cinematography for Skyfall. This is his 10th nomination and he still has not won! That's shocking when you consider his work includes The Shawshank Redemption and Fargo just to name a few. As for movies: Lincoln and Les Mis. Finally, really rooting for Jennifer Lawrence! She was great in Silver Linings Playbook and I think she's more than earned an Oscar. Thoughts?
Alright Everyone: We need the most awesome, bad to the bone, super talented cinematographer ever for an upcoming series of 3 week adventures starting in June 2014 for a special series related to the Professionals. You've got to be in shape and able to handle incredibly unforgiving filming conditions while still getting awesome shots. You need to be familiar with large sensor cameras and it's a plus if you don't mind being on camera and a further plus if you know who Roger Deakins is! Please send me a message if you are this person or know a person who fits the description. Please send a link if possible to online work. Thanks! Bran
Congrats to Roger Deakins, ASC for his Theatrical Release ASC Award for Skyfall. So well deserved to one of my greatest mentors.
Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC; Balazs Bolygo, HSC; Kramer Morgenthau, ASC; Florian Hoffmeister; and Bradford Lipson claimed top honors in the four competitive categories at the 27th Annual American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Awards for Outstanding Achievement, which was held here tonight at the Ray...
lease join us this Friday, February 8th at 3pm in HHH 323 for a screening of John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt, a fascinating exploration of doubt, certainty, knowledge, belief, evidence, suspicion, Catholicism ... the list goes on. The film, released in 2008, is written and directed by Shanley (and is based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning play of 2005). The outstanding cast includes Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Viola Davis. The film is shot by the inestimable Roger Deakins and edited by Dylan Tichenor (no slouch himself). Here’s a blurb from the Chicago Reader: John Patrick Shanley adapted his own Pulitzer-winning play for this compelling drama about an archconservative nun (Meryl Streep) and a progressive priest (Philip Seymour Hoffman) clashing in a working-class Bronx parish in 1964. Principal of the parish school, the nun suspects the priest of molesting a 12-year-old boy—the school's first black student. Lacking any evidence and hamstrung by the church's male-dominated cha ...
Finally saw the Skyfall after a long wait. Bravo Sam Mendes (and Roger Deakins?), for such aesthetically beautiful shots that I didn't expect from a James Bond film! I have liked Judi Dench as M, but yeah, she might be getting too old...
10. Skyfall Who would have ever thought that a James Bond film could aspire for such greatness as Skyfall does? We should never have expected anything less from Sam Mendes who gave us American Beauty and Road To Perdition. This is not a drama by any means as those films are but it is certainly the best well amde blockbuster of the year featuring Daniel Craig’s best perforamance of James Bond yet and a devilish turn by Javier Bardem that leaves you wanting more by the films end. Throw in some awe inspiring cinemetography by the great Roger Deakins and that haunting theme song by Adele which perfectly sets the tone for the entire film and you have not only the greatest Bond film ever made but one of the years best films overall. 9. The Grey I wasn’t expecting the emotional gut punch that was The Grey when I first saw it. I expected it to be a typical Liam Neeson action film featuring wilderness survival and epic fights with vicious wolves. I’m here to tell you that this film may be the ...
At last, here are my top 10 favorite films of 2012. Haters to the left. That means you, Sean Knight. 10. Skyfall The very best thing I can say about the latest Bond film is that when it was over, I wanted to see the next one IMMEDIATELY. John Logan's screenplay subverts and builds again, Sam Mendes brings a dramatist's steady hand to the direction, and Roger Deakins makes it the most gorgeous-looking installment...well, ever. Add in the best villain since (at least!) 'Goldeneye,' and Bond is back, again, better than ever, again. 9. Silver Linings Playbook This film sneaks up on you. You've heard about how great the performances are--Jennifer Lawrence is scorching, and Robert De Niro looks like he actually gives a crap for the first time in decades--but I walked in expecting your usual bittersweet indie, and ended up with a real crowd-pleaser. Like "on your feet cheering, walk back to the car on a cloud" kind of crowd-pleaser. Bradley Cooper, the forgotten lead, is a revelation, and David O. Russell for on ...
My Oscar 2012 list (Of course, heavily biased based on what I did and didn't see), edited from the list here: are my personal picks from the films/people nominated by the Academy, not necessarily my absolute favorites of the year. (I might get to those in a top 20 list or something.) Best Picture Lincoln (Though I predict the Academy will pick Amour, if only because it's French.) Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln Best Actress Naomi Watts, The Impossible (Never saw this movie, bt I do like Naomi Watts. :P) Best Supporting Actor Tommy Lee Jones, Lincoln (Though Christoph Waltz was great in Django Unchained.) Best Supporting Actress Sally Field, Lincoln Best Director Steven Spielberg, Lincoln (I'd actually never heard of any of the other nominated directors.) Best Original Screenplay Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola Best Adapted Screenplay Argo, Chris Terrio Best Animated Feature Brave Best Cinematography Skyfall, Roger Deakins (Though Lincoln and Django Unc ...
I do hope Roger Deakins, Joaquin Phoenix, Emmanuelle Riva & Michael Haneke take home awards but I'm not holding my breath
Thoughts on the Oscar nominations: 1. Roger Deakins deserves to win Best Cinematography for Skyfall. Full stop. It's his tenth nomination and if this one doesn't bring it home, he may never have a strong chance again. 2. Nothing for Dark Knight Rises and just one cursory visual effects nod for The Avengers? What does a superhero movie have to do to get some respect in this town? 3. Interesting field for Best Actress, and I'm pulling for either Jennifer Lawrence or Quvenzhané Wallis. (It's pronounced kwa-van-juh-nay.) 4. Brave was a return to form for Pixar, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it reclaim Best Animated Feature. But I wouldn't be upset if it went to one of the 3(!) stop-motion nominees: ParaNorman, The Pirates!, or Frankenweenie. 5. Show of hands: Who can't wait to see Seth MacFarlane AND Adele singing for Oscar gold? They're both nominated for Best Original Song. 6. I really need to see Argo. And Beasts of the Southern Wild. And Life of Pi. And maybe Amour.
Okay here are my initial thoughts on the 2013 Oscar nominees. Best picture sound is expected (except for Amour). I still need to see Amour, Beasts, and Zero. I can't fairly say which of the nine is best yet. I wish there was room for "Skyfall", but I guess the academy couldn't look past the fact that it was a Bond film. I also wish that "The Master" showed up in that category. Amazing film. Roger Deakins better win for "Skyfall". The man has been robbed nine too many times. The thing that sticks out the most to me is the unforgivable snub of Affleck for Best Director.
Roger Deakins deserves to win an Oscar; he's done such great work, so prolifically as well.
Oscar nominations are announced tomorrow. Anything you're rooting for? (I've got my fingers crossed for Roger Deakins' Skyfall cinematography - Stu)
Cinematography is more than a camera, whether that camera is a Red an Alexa or a Bolex. There is a little more to it that resolution, colour depth, latitude, grain structure, lens aberration etc. etc. etc. The lenses use for 'Citizen Kane' were in no way as good as a Primo or a Master Prime and the grain structure in that film is, frankly, all over the place. But the cinematography? - Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC
That last half hour of Skyfall in the Scottish moors was so good. Albert Finney as the poacher, Roger Deakins' shots, the pacing. Wicked.
First up I have gotta say that the standout for Skyfall was Roger Deakins. Wow. This should be Oscar Nominated. It was exquisitely shot.
Skyfall was gorgeous. Roger Deakins is a master of light
Plus, Roger Deakins cinematography in IMAX is like having Christmas early.
If it weren't for a quick toot of iconic notes at the start of Skyfall, for a minute there you might find yourself wondering whether you'd wandered into a Spielberg alien movie by mistake. Silhouetted against a scrim of blinding light, a spindly, blurry figure, bobbing at an odd gait, moves down a c...
Go and see 007 'Skyfall' for Roger Deakins outstanding photography!

Skyfall is exactly the kind of brilliant film making that the academy won't recognize! Sam Mendes and Roger deakins work amazing
This might be an interesting read for ya.
Roger Deakins hopefully gets himself an Oscar for that one. Especially the latter half.

"The choice of a camera system is no different than the choice of a lens set, a camera position or where to put a lamp" - Roger Deakins
My mini movie review- Skyfall 007: Bond has come a long way from the Roger Moore Bond I grew up on. Daniel Craig once again adds grit and muscle to the worlds most envied secret agent. However, I would like to see the charm of Connery's Bond and the joke 'one liners' of Brosnan's Bond come back (something I take on the 007 mantle). The best parts for me were the 'return to basics' that the movie embraced. The lack of Bond gadgets, the introduction of a 'new guard' of characters and little touches like touching on Bond's childhood and introducing you to Bond's family house in Scotland, the classic Aston Martin DB5 and the cut throat razor. It is like they hit a 'reset button' on the whole Bond image...and it worked well. Javier Bardem as the villain is the icing on a well constructed cake. (4 stars)
