Best Looking Films of the Year?

The ASC (American Society of Cinematographers) announced their nominees for best cinematography in a film for 2011. I guess if anyone should know, it’s these guys and gals. Of the nominees, the only one I haven’t seen is Hugo, so I can’t attest to that one. Not having seen Hugo, I’d personally replace it with something like Hanna or maybe even Rango? Dunno, but the rest of these seem pretty spot on to me. Will these be the five that are also nominated for an Academy Award? What’s missing from this list?

  • Guillaume Schiffman (The Artist)
  • Jeff Cronenweth (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)
  • Robert Richardson (Hugo)
  • Hoyte van Hoytema (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)
  • Emmanuel Lubezki (The Tree of Life)

No complaints here, although I’ve only seen Tinker Tailor and Tree of Life. Good call on Rango though – that looked incredible.

Personally I love the cinematography in Hobo With a Shotgun – it’s obviously not the classy polished look that wins awards, but by God it has personality!
