Roger Deakins and Oscar can't get together.
Deakins, one of the most acclaimed cinematographers of the modern era, lost in the Best Cinematography category to "Life of Pi" cinematographer Claudio Miranda at the 85th annual Academy Awards. This was Deakins' 10th nomination without securing a win.
The 63-year-old Deakins is responsible for the look of some of the most beloved films from the last 20 years. To wit, he was nominated in the Best Cinematography category for "The Shawshank Redemption," "Fargo," "Kundun," "O Brother Where Art Thou?," "The Man Who Wasn't There," "No Country for Old Men," "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," "The Reader" and "True Grit." Deakins is a frequent collaborator of the Coen Brothers and "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes; in addition to "Skyfall," Deakins also shot "Jarhead" and "Revolutionary Road."
His next film is the kidnapping drama "Prisoners," with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.
