Cinematographer Roger Deakins wins first Oscar on 14th try


Legendary cameraman Roger Deakins finally bagged the Oscar for best cinematography on his 14th attempt on Sunday, completing his trophy collection with a win for "Blade Runner 2049."

The 68-year-old Briton won the honor for his artful rendering of a drizzly, neon-lit futuristic Los Angeles and the burnt orange hellscape of Las Vegas in Denis Villeneuve's sequel to the cult 1982 hit "Blade Runner."
