Oscar 2009 : The Sights
For the Oscar in art direction this year, it's tough to beat The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. A beautiful film that could be trumped by The Dark Knight (and be deserved). The cinematography of Slumdog Millionaire is award worthy, as is the editing. The visual effects of The Dark Knight are eye popping and dizzying. The film may grab the award for best makeup as well. The closest competition, for makeup, would be The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I saw The Duchess because I thought it would get a nom for costumes. I was right, and I think it could win.
