'Inception' Cinematographer Wally Pfister Wins the Oscars in a Very Tough Race
"Inception" cinematographer and long-time Christopher Nolan collaborator Wally Pfister garnered the Oscars Best Cinematography Award at the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony held at the Kodak Theatre on February 28, 2011. He finally received his Oscar-winning trophy as a cinematographer after three other nominations coming from all-Nolan masterpieces including "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight" and "The Prestige."
Because of its completely powerful mounting into a motion picture masterpiece, my interest in the film led me to seriously reading the production notes on how the film was done. After that, hands down to the entire team for coming up with such "a technically polished blockbuster art film." Given how emotionally and visually captivating "Inception" is, which is something The Academy typically loves, it is not really a big surprise that the film won the year's much-coveted cinematography award.
