Best Cinematography

During the initial days of Oscars, the 'Oscar for Best Cinematography' was not tied to a specific film. Rather, all of the work by the nominated cinematographers during the qualifying period was listed after their names. However, the problem in the system became oblivious in the first award ceremony itself. Therefore, the nominations for the category underwent changes.
 
Presently, the 'Academy Award for Best Cinematography' is presented to a cinematographer for his work in one particular motion picture. We have provided a list of the winners of this category of award, in the lines below.
