The American Society of Cinematographers gave out their awards tonight.
Roger Deakins won for Skyfall.
You’d think this matters, but the man has won this award countless times and still doesn’t have an Oscar.
I still say they’re gonna fuck him over on Oscar night. I can just see Life of Pi winning.
But anyway, he has this. So that’s something.
ASC has just announced their nominations. Here they are:
Anna Karenina, Seamus McGarvey
Les Misérables, Danny Cohen
Life of Pi, Claudio Miranda
Lincoln, Janusz Kaminski
Skyfall, Roger Deakins
Since my Oscar nominations predictions are coming out later today, I’ll spare the discussion of these nominations until then, except to say — yes. In a few minutes, once I type them all out — BAFTA nominations.
The American Society of Cinematographers have announced their awards.
The one award that matters for our purposes is that Emmanuel Lubezki won Best Cinematography for a feature film for The Tree of Life. To the surprise of no one.
This should be the way the Oscars go, but, honestly, the threat of a sweep by The Artist is still very much possibility. (Hugo‘s also hanging around there too.)
That’s it. That’s all I have.
Another semi-big day. The American Society of Cinematographers have announced their awards nominees today.
Cinematography is, to me, one of the top awards. When I think of the Oscar categories, the ones I’m most interested in, outside of Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress, the others are Screenplay (both of them), Cinematography and Editing. Those are really the top 10 categories. And then I’m also interested in Song and Score, but that’s the musical branch, and there’s a lot of compromise there. So, while they are interesting, and I do pay attention to them, they’re not exactly top categories. (Though, really, at this point, I’m interested in just about every category that isn’t Foreign Language Film, Documentary, and all the shorts that aren’t Animated Short.)
So, here are the ASC nominations, and these will help gauge — well, several things — for when nominations are announced in thirteen days:
- The Artist, Guillaume Schiffman
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Jeff Cronenweth
- Hugo, Robert Richardson
- Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Hoyte van Hoytema
- The Tree of Life, Emmanuel Lubezki (more…)
