Oscars ‘13: Predictions, part two - Crafts

First Published Feb 20 2013 09:24AM      Last Updated Feb 24 2014 11:14 am

Welcome to day two of The Cricket’s predictions for the 85th annual Academy Awards — today featuring the craft categories: Cinematography, production design, costume design and the two music categories - original score and original song.

On Tuesday, the Cricket predicted the technical categories. The Cricket will discuss the specialty features (animated, documentary and foreign-language) and the short-film categories (animated, documentary and live-action) on Thursday. The major categories will get their due Friday, on this blog and in the print edition of The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Cricket will be live-tweeting the Oscar ceremony Sunday (the ceremony starts at 6:30 p.m. Mountain time, with ABC’s red-carpet pre-show starting at 5 p.m.) at @moviecricket.



-------------

Cinematography

The nominees are: Seamus McGarvey, "Anna Karenina"; Robert Richardson, "Django Unchained"; Claudio Miranda, "Life of Pi"; Janusz Kaminski, "Lincoln"; Roger Deakins, "Skyfall."

Who will win: Claudio Miranda’s gorgeous visuals gave "Life of Pi" its life. Bet on it to win, though Janusz Kaminski’s glowing images for "Lincoln" may pull an upset.

Who should win: Roger Deakins (here with his 10th nomination, and with no wins so far) gave James Bond a sleek, seductive look in "Skyfall."

-------------

Production Design

The nominees are: Sarah Greenwood (Production Design); Katie Spencer (Set Decoration), "Anna Karenina"; Dan Hennah (Production Design); Ra Vincent and Simon Bright (Set Decoration), "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"; Eve Stewart (Production Design); Anna Lynch-Robinson (Set Decoration), "Les Misérables"; David Gropman (Production Design); Anna Pinnock (Set Decoration), "Life of Pi"; Rick Carter (Production Design); Jim Erickson (Set Decoration), "Lincoln."

Who will win: In this category (formerly called "art direction"), it’s safe to go with the biggest, fanciest period piece — which in this case isn’t the stately "Lincoln" but the glittery "Anna Karenina."

Who should win: The sets in "Anna Karenina" weren’t just designed to sit there, but to move in elaborate choreography within the massive theater in which director Joe Wright placed Tolstoy’s story.

-------------

Costume Design

The nominees are: Jacqueline Durran, "Anna Karenina"; Paco Delgado, "Les Misérables"; Joanna Johnston, "Lincoln"; Eiko Ishioka, "Mirror Mirror"; Colleen Atwood, "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Who will win: "Anna Karenina," the most opulent of the bunch.

Who should win: The two wicked queens — Julia Roberts in "Mirror Mirror" and Charlize Theron in "Snow White and the Huntsman" — both wore the most beautifully evil gowns. One vote for "Mirror Mirror," where the costumes were slightly kookier.
