A Best Cinematography Oscar nomination for ‘1917’ would move Roger Deakins up to second on the all-time list
Roger Deakins is back in the Best Cinematography Oscar race for the first time since his win for “Blade Runner 2049” (2017) with Sam Mendes‘ “1917.” His long-awaited victory was on his 14th nomination and if he nabs a 15th, he’ll tie for second place for most nominations.

Robert Surtees is currently in sole possession of second-place honors, amassing 15 bids over his nearly five-decade career. He won for “King Solomon’s Mines” (1950), “The Bad and the Beautiful” (1952) and “Ben-Hur” (1959). Leon Shamroy and Charles Lang hold the category record at 18 nominations each. Shamroy has a record four wins, which he shares with 10-nominee Joseph Ruttenberg, having triumphed for “The Black Swan” (1942), “Wilson” (1944), “Leave Her to Heaven” (1945) and “Cleopatra” (1963). Lang prevailed once, taking home the prize on his second nomination for “A Farewell to Arms” (1932).
