Immediate reaction:
There are two headlines in this category. The first is the fact that Morrison’s presence marks the first time a woman has been nominated for cinematography. The second is Deakins, who is up for his 14th Academy Award and has never won. Will this be his year? It’s certainly possible. His work on “Blade Runner” was stunning, plus it would be a long time coming.
