This morning of craziness continues with the ASC nominations. Ever decisive this year, the guild chose seven (?!#@) choices this year. A strong field and a strong field of films not nominated, however this appears to be a category all but done with. Gravity should prevail; cinemaphile purists who get all hot and bothered by the mix of visual effects and old-fashioned cinematography (a worthy argument, if not completely applicable within an awards context) will continue to be outraged.
