Just when you thought you knew how the race was shaping up, along comes a guild to let you know that your thoughts don't amount to shit! Bucking the trend that the critics' groups have established in their Best Cinematography categories, the American Society of Cinematographers has announced the nominations for its 2022 awards. Instead of Avatar: The Way of Water, we get The Batman. Instead of The Fabelmans, we get Bardo. Instead of Decision to Leave, we get Elvis - now I'm always happy for Mandy Walker representation, but that one's a hell of a shocker. It only remains to be seen how the Oscar nominations shape up for this category in just over two weeks' time, but the only thing we know now is that, in this category at least, we know nothing! Winners will be announced on 5 March.
