If Hoyte does a good job on this movie, I really hope he wins his Oscar. No Lubezki or Deakins to take it from him this year. Sandgren is probably gonna be a strong contender, but after Dunkirk Hoyte is definitely overdue.
He's not even as due as Gray's previous DoP
When did I say that?
Both Dunkirk and Interstellar were very worthy Oscar candidates that just had some seriously hard competition. And Dunkirk should and would have won in every universe it wasn't up against the longest overdue cinematographer in history doing the best work of his career.
Her and LTROI are also beautifully shot.
Hoyte obviously doesn't have a long career behind him, but in my opinion he has done so well with what he's worked on so far that he should have had an Oscar at this point.
Not saying there aren't other who deserves one more than him, but if the nominations are announced and someone like that shows up, let me know.
