American Society of Cinematographers Announce Nominees

  • Guillaume Schiffman, AFC (The Artist)
  • Jeff Cronenweth, ASC (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)
  • Robert Richardson, ASC (Hugo)
  • Hoyte van Hoytema, FSF, NSC (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)
  • Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC (The Tree of Life)

Notably missing is Janusz Kamiński for War Horse. That film’s Oscar chances have been slipping slowly as the guilds have been revealing their nominations. Also of note, this is Robert Richardson’s 10th nomination and although he’s won two Oscars (for The Aviator and JFK), he’s yet to win the ASC award. Emmanuel Lubezki won the award in for Children of Men (though he lost the Oscar that  year and I’m still bitter); I really think he’s finally gonna win his Oscar this year.
