Cinematographers Reveal Film Nominees


UPDATE: The ASC Awards will be held Feb. 10 at Hollywood and Highland.

The American Society of Cinematographers has nominated the cinematographers behind Anna Karenina, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln and Skyfall for outstanding achievement in its feature film category.

Roger Deakins, recipient of the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011, received his eleventh nomination for his work on Skyfall. He previously won ASC Awards for 1995’s The Shawshank Redemption and 2002’s The Man Who Wasn’t There.

STORY: Guide to Cinematography Award Voting

Lincoln’s Janusz Kaminski received his fifth nomination. He was most recently nominated for 2008’s The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

Each of the other three nominees have been nominated once before: Les MiserablesDanny Cohen was previously nominated for 2011’s The King’s Speech; Anna Karenina’s Seamus McGarvey was previously nominated for 2008’s Atonement; and Life of Pi’s Claudio Miranda was previously nominated for 2009’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

"The films our members have nominated are visually distinctive, and very diverse: a theatrical epic, a grand musical, an imaginative 3-D fable, a sweeping biographical drama, and a stylish spy thriller," said ASC president Stephen Lighthill. "What they all have in common is that each project's cinematographer contributed captivating visuals that enhanced and elevated the storytelling."

The winner will be announced at the ASC Awards celebration on Feb. 10 at the Hollywood & Highland Grand Ballroom.
