Roger Deakins’ 13 Oscar nominations and zero wins is hardly new news, but it’s never not shocking anytime we hear about it. The 68-year-old cinematographer is one of the legends of his craft, and it’s about time the Academy recognizes it. With “Blade Runner 2049” shaping up to be one of the most visually stunning releases of the year, this awards season could finally do the trick for Deakins.
Warner Bros. has released two full trailers for Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s landmark 1982 science-fiction movie, and they are jam-packed with so many jaw-dropping shots that we’d give Deakins an award just for the four minutes-worth of footage we’ve already seen.
