The Nature Of Humanity Evolves In ‘Blade Runner 2049’

Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049” is an extreme technical achievement.

The nucleus of each […]

Roger Deakins Wins Top ASC Award For ‘Blade Runner 2049’

Roger Deakins. A legendary cinematographer who has absurdly never won an Oscar, despite being nominated 14 times. His latest nod is for “Blade Runner 2049,” the painterly sci-fi sequel from director Denis Villeneuve, their third collaboration together. Much of the film’s atmospheric brilliance was due to Deakins’ work, and it certainly appears that Villeneuve gave Deakins […]

On Tuesday morning, this year’s Oscar nominations were unveiled, and while there were various surprises and snubs, for the most part there weren’t any major quibbles (aside from “The Boss Baby” being nominated for Best Animated Feature, which is simply ridiculous).
