Earlier this morning, the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) announced their nominees for the year, choosing to honor the cinematographers behind “Anna Karenina,” “Les Miserables,” “Life of Pi,” “Lincoln” and “Skyfall” for the 27th annual awards ceremony. All five cinematographers to land nominations have been previously nominated by the ASC. The nominees include legend Roger Deakins, who previously won the award for “The Shawshank Redemption” and the 2001 Coen Brothers film “The Man Who Wasn’t There.” He also earned the ASC Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. This latest nomination, for the mega-blockbuster “Skyfall”, marks the 11th nomination for Deakins.
However, he is facing stiff competition from well-respected veteran cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, who’s scored his fifth nomination for Steven Spielberg’s Oscar hopeful “Lincoln.” Meanwhile, Claudio Miranda earned a nod for “Life of Pi” while Seamus McGarvey won his second nomination for the literary epic “Anna Karenina.” Lastly, Danny Cohen was cited for his work on the hit musical “Les Miserables”.
Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Feb. 10 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.
