ASC Nominations

The American Society of Cinematographers announced their 2012 nominees for best cinematography today. The good news is that Roger Deakins crisp, pristine lensing in Skyfall was nominated, which was also his 11th nomination. They also seemed to enjoy Janusz Kaminski's milky white lighting in Spielberg's Lincoln. But, what is up with the lack of love for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master and the perfect widescreen work of Mihai Malaimare, Jr. Damn. The awards for film and TV will be handed out on February 10th. The society was chartered in 1919 and is a non-profit association. Last year, the best cinematographer went to Emmanuel Lubezki (my favorite dp) for his expertly crafted work on Terrence Malick's Tree of Life. Here is a list of the film nominees.

  • Seamus McGarvey (Anna Karenina)
  • Danny Cohen (Les Miserables)
  • Claudio Miranda (Life of Pi)
  • Janusz Kaminski (Lincoln)
  • Roger Deakins (Skyfall)
