And the Indie Awards keep coming! “Birdman” wins for Best Cinematography as it did also at the BAFTAS. Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezski won the Oscar last year for his camera work on “Gravity.” And he’s nominated for an Oscar in this category Best Cinematography this year. So should I say tomorrow night?
If any other film wins in this category, that will be a sign that “Birdman” is in trouble later on in the night.
Justin Simien won Best First Screenplay for “Dear White People” which is nominated for no Oscars whatsoever. This was one of the Sundance hits from the past year that just kept on going and going. Remember “Boyhood” AND “Whiplash” BOTH debuted there a year ago last month.
“Ida” won Best International Film which is the Indies’ equivalent of Best Foreign Film. Looks VERY good for this Black and White Polish film to also repeat tomorrow night at the Oscars.
