The 7TH ANNUAL LION AWARDS: Best Cinematography

by Shane Slater · February 23, 2014 · Featured, LIONs for LAMB · 1 Comment

We’re debuting a new award this year with Best Cinematography. Here are your Top 5 picks…


5. Stoker (Chung-hoon Chung) – 47 points



4. Inside Llewyn Davis (Bruno Delbonnel) -49 points



3. Prisoners (Roger Deakins) – 52 points



2. 12 Years A Slave (Sean Bobbitt) – 63 points



1. Gravity (Emmanuel Lubezki) – 196 points

It’s interesting that this category was added this year, as the eventual winner was never in doubt. As expected, Emmanuel Lubezki’s dazzling work on Gravity obliterated the competition, amassing an impressive 196 points. Some of the other Oscar nominees weren’t as fortunate. Nebraska picked up 22 points for 8th place, while The Grandmaster was way behind with 7 points.

Check back tomorrow for the award for Best Supporting Actor.

    Love the Stoker mention here! I know that everyone LOVES Gravity (I also LOVE the film) but for me CGI should not be rewarded here. The film was beautiful, but it was all shot on a greenscreen and had the beautiful backdrop digitally put in place. It’s called Visual Effects, not cinematography.
