Oscars 2015 Category Breakdown: Best Cinematography

Every year before the Oscars I break down each of the 24 categories. I do this to familiarize everyone with the category, how it works, what its history is, how it usually turns out, and also as a precursor to my picks article, allowing me to get most of the heavy lifting out of the way beforehand.

Others mean nothing). It’s basically everything you need to know in order to make an informed decision when you make your picks on Oscar night.
