I'm glad Wolf of Wall Street's presence is starting to grow more.

It didn't win anything though, unfortunately.

James Franco over Michael Fassbender and Jared Leto? Surprising, but he was good in the role.

That was a surprise. I liked his performance, but I thought it would have been forgotten by awards season.

Hooray for Frozen. That's the only film I've seen of the winners. I really wish these movies would come out to rent all ready.

Can't believe the girl from 12 years a slave didn't win her performance was the movie's best one. Probably due to the Jennifer Lawrence craze. Also Gravity winning for Cinematography and Production Design is a joke. there was almost no cinematography or production design in that movie. Voters need to learn what they are voting on in categories like these.

Life of Pi got the same complaints. I'm starting to think that maybe Cinematography doesn't mean what we think it means.

I guess not, because both of those films had outstanding cinematography.

You don't know what cinematography means if you are in disagreement over Gravity and Life of Pi.

almost no cinematography or production design? What made Gravity such a great film is precisely the cinematography and the production design. The way the camera danced seamlessly around objects through space for 17 minute takes at a time is not magic - it's cinematography and production design ... (although it was magical)

"No cinematography" in "Gravity"? Did you watch the movie your eyes closed?

Merriam-Webster: Art and technology of motion-picture photography. It involves the composition of a scene, lighting of the set and actors, choice of cameras, camera angle, and integration of special effects to achieve the photographic images desired by the director. Cinematography focuses on relations between the individual shots and groups of shots that make up a scene to produce a film's effect. In case you desired to educate yourself before commenting on something you obviously know nothing about.

Yeeaahhh...Jared doesn't know what he's talking about. Hopefully he reads Mr. Keefner's post and learns.

I don't know how to tell you. The way the camera circulated out of nowhere, the way it entered and left Bullock's helmet, the beautifully cut shots that left you in anticipation. I honestly said after leaving the theatre that Gravity's cinematography was the best I had ever seen.
