Cinematography and Costume Guild Nominees

The technical guilds usually always include the eventual Oscar nominees, so here are a couple that came in today.


  • 12 Years a Slave
  • Captain Phillips
  • The Grandmaster
  • Gravity
  • Inside Llewyn Davis
  • Nebraska
  • Prisoners

Apparently there was so much great cinematography this year there had to be 7 nominees. 5 out of those 7 will likely make the Oscar cut. Offhand, my guess would be 12 Years, Gravity, Inside Llewyn Davis, Captain Phillips and Nebraska. But The Grandmaster is certainly a possibility (it'd replace Phillips if anything). Meanwhile, the costume designers also spoke up.



Period Film:

  • 12 Years a Slave
  • American Hustle
  • Dallas Buyers Club
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Saving Mr. Banks

Fantasy Film:

  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
  • The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
  • Oz: The Great and Powerful

Contemporary Film:

  • Blue Jasmine
  • Her
  • Nebraska
  • Philomena
  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

This category always favors period and fantasy films, the more elaborate the better, so my guess on the final five would be 12 Years, American Hustle, Great Gatsby, Oz, and Catching Fire.
