Your favorite Cinematography

This link will take you to the Wikipedia page for the Academy Award for Best cinematography:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academy_Award_for_Best_Cinematography

The Academy Awards are often criticized for the poor judgement, but technical awards get relatively less attention.  Looking over this category which awards do you think are deserved?  Which do you think are egregiously undeserving? What movies should have been nominated?

For a start, I'm struck that Gordon Willis wasn't nominated for either The Godfather or The Godfather, Part II (or for Manhattan either, though The Godfather Part III was nominated.)

Two of my all time favorite films justifiably won Best Cinematography in the 1980s: Reds (Vittorio Storaro) in 1981; Out of Africa (David Watkin) in 1985. Both cinematographers created new technology. The competition was fierce, both years.
