Best: Long Overdue Wins for Roger Deakins and James Ivory

Talk about legendary. Last night, two icons long overlooked by the Academy finally got the statuettes they deserved. At the age of 89, writer-director James Ivory won Adapted Screenplay for his lovely, thoughtful treatment of André Aciman's Call Me By Your Name, making him the oldest Oscar winner in history. ("In voting for me, you are remembering them," he said of his late collaborators Ismail Merchant and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala.) And then there's Roger Deakins, who at last took the award for Cinematography after an unbelievable 13 (!) nominations with no wins. He certainly deserved it for the visually stunning Blade Runner 2049, but let's take a second to remember his previous work: Deakins has brought his unparalleled eye to dozens of films including The Shawshank Redemption, Skyfall, Sicario and pretty much everything the Coen brothers have ever made.
