The next Oscars will be held in spring next year and if you take a look at the productions that have been highly touted in the run-up to the ceremony, there already seems to be at least one clear winner: Analog film material! We can also spontaneously think of two outstanding productions, Christopher Nolan&s "Oppenheimer" and Wes Anderson&s "Asteroid City", which have also been much discussed on slashCAM and are likely to be clear Oscar contenders.
See also our Behind the Scenes News on working with Kodak 5213 film stock in Asteroid City. But the list of Oscar contenders shot on negative film is much longer. Indiewire took a look at 32 Oscar contenders and if you sort the productions according to the main camera used, an analog film camera ends up in first place: The analog Arricam is in first place with 11 productions, followed by Mini LF (7 productions) and Sony Venice (6 productions).
If you also include Arriflex (2 productions), Panavision XL2 and 65 (5 productions) and Nolan&s IMAX Film, almost half of the Oscar contenders listed here are analog.
