Deakins wins ASC!!!

Fuck. Yes.

Even though I know his Oscar chances are slim, this consolatory prize for the great Roger Deakins from the American Society of Cinematographers makes me cheer. Skyfall was the best shot film of the year by a country mile in my opinion, and I'm so glad to see that Deakins' peers recognize it for the masterstroke that it is.

Kudos, Mr. Deakins. Kudos.


  1. Yay, Deakins!

    Wait, how the hell did Les Miserables get nominated?

  2. If Deakins wins Oscar, I will die a happy man. (Hopefully it'll happen before Deakins dies)
