  • Inception- Wally Pfister
  • The King's Speech- Danny Cohen
  • The Social Network- Jeff Cronenweth
  • True Grit- Roger Deakins
2010 in images.
I happily applaud the members of the ASC for acknowledging that great camerawork in motion pictures isn't merely dictated by pretty pictures.  Arguably True Grit is the only real "traditional" type film mentioned with roaring landscapes.  The others are far more specific to stories they are telling, either frightening indie thriller (Black Swan), textured period piece (The King's Speech), immaculate character piece (The Social Network), or big-budget extravaganza (Inception.)  And on that acknowledgment, I'll refrain from complaint, however if the Academy did decide to shake up this fine category just a tad bit, wouldn't I Am Love make a fine nominee.  Just a suggestion.
