The likeliest nominee for 2017 among the cubs is Linus Sandgren for his work on our current Best Picture and also that might be at the frontrunner “La La Land.” Sandgren will be a mundane name to Oscar voters for his recent lensing of two David O. Russell films, “Joy” and “American Hustle.” Best Cinematography has gone to the same film that won Best Director for the last four years running and Damien Chazelle is a top contender in that latter race for the nomination 2017.
