you re the best cinematographer working on Hollywood now...an Oscar may not benefit you but can not hurt either.

Oh, I hope that this will not happen. I do not need more "enthusiasts", who think they can make great movies with their DSLR or toy-camera, only because they have this camera. And then whole crews sit in front of a big monitor and discuss the frame, the lighting and everything, because you get a nice and clean output from every camera.
They made "Citizen Kane" without democracy, but with teamwork and a strong vision, and it worked for a hundred years like this. And guess what, independent movies existed before digital cameras, shot on beautiful 16mm or also on 8mm. If you want to make a movie, go out and shoot. But with you vision, and with knowledge, passion, everything, but not with democracy because a camera is cheap.
