See Every Oscar Winner for Best Cinematography Ever

Do you have 10 minutes to spare? This great video shows every Oscar winner for Best Cinematography, including this year's nominees. If you need some inspiration to break you out of a creative rut or just want to enjoy some beautiful films, this is the montage for you.

The 2019 Oscars are just around the corner, and it's a great time to look at the films of yesteryear and admire them for their achievements. Coming to you from Burger Fiction, this great video shows brief clips from every Oscar winner for Best Cinematography. If you're looking for some films to watch for inspiration for your own work, this is a great list to look at. My personal favorite is "A Man for All Seasons," which won the award for 1966, along with five other awards, including Best Picture. The film tells the story of Sir Thomas More, particularly his relationship with Henry VIII that led to his eventual execution. The studio generally left the film's production to its own devices, and the result is a wonderfully organic visual feast whose opulence never feels manufactured or contrived. It's definitely worth taking a few hours to watch when you can. Do you have any favorites on this list? Share them in the comments!

I'm going to watch this vid now, but I will say the movie "Roma" that came out on Netflix and is up for a bunch of Oscars this year is the most beautiful piece of cinematography I have ever witnessed.

A great video, but how sad that Burger Fiction felt it was not important or maybe not worth the effort to include the names of all these incredible and talented Cinematographers. Too often we witness the names of the stars and directors on award lists, yet once we go down to the all important technicians it just becomes anonymous.
