Oscar 2007: Robert Elswit Reaction to Winning

The Best Cinematography winner Robert Elswit, for Paul Thomas Anderson's “There Will Be Blood,” was self-effacing backstage, again crediting production designer Jack Fisk for his location sets. Elswit called Fisk “brilliant” and said “he did an incredible job.”

Of his win, he said “It feels great, but it's wacky. Awards are silly in that sense; all the people nominated are so extraordinary. Roger Deakins has seven nominations and no wins. It's just luck.”
