Will Win - Claudio Miranda "Life of Pi"
Could Win/Should Win - Roger Deakins "Skyfall"
Commentary - God, would someone please just give Roger Deakin an Oscar! The ASC win is great for Deakins, but he has won that before without winning the Oscar. Plus, despite Skyfall's popularity in the UK, Life of Pi managed to take the BAFTA. I think it is a closer race than most people think, but I think that in the end the gorgeous and more obvious cinematography of Life of Pi will prevail. But honestly, for Deakin's sake, I hope I am wrong.
