Best Cinematography Predictions

Chris Raybon: Dune is expected to ransack the craft categories, but an upset could be brewing here, as 38.5% of Gold Derby editors are on The Power of the Dog. They are joined by 14.3% of experts, which equates to a weighted probability of 26.4%, or +279 odds.

The Tragedy of Macbeth was the tragedy of Denzel Washington choosing another movie where all he does is listen to himself talk, but it did have pretty good cinematography. With  a 9.2% weighted probability at Gold Derby, it is also a live longshot.

Again, be sure to using our Hedging Calculator to figure out the optimal way to split your bets based on the odds at your book.

Pick: The Power of the Dog +300 (to +280), The Tragedy of Macbeth +1400 (to +1000)
