The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has announced nominees in the two television categories of the 23rd Annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards competition. The winner will be announced during the awards gala on February 15, here at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel.

Nominees vying for top honors in the TV movie/miniseries/pilot category are Oliver Bokelberg, BVK for ?Breakdown,? the pilot of My Own Worst Enemy (NBC); Michael Bonvillain, ASC for the Fringe pilot (FOX); Jon Joffin for ?Night One? of The Andromeda Strain (A&E); Kramer Morgenthau, ASC for the pilot of Life on Mars (ABC); and David Stockon for ?Resurrection,? the pilot of Eleventh Hour (CBS).

Nominees in the episodic television category are Nelson Cragg for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation / ?For Gedda? (CBS); Ousama Rawi, CSC, BSC for The Tudors / ?Episode 2.1? (Showtime); Stephen Reizes, CSC for Flashpoint / ?Who?s George?? (CBS); Gale Tattersall for House M.D. / ?House?s Head? (FOX); and Glen Winter, CSC for Smallville / ?Fracture? (CW).

?Selecting these finalists out of the many imaginative entries was a challenging decision for our members,? says ASC President Daryn Okada. ?These talented cinematographers have elevated the visual palette of television and have earned the admiration of their peers.?

Winter is the only nominee who has previously earned an ASC Outstanding Achievement Award. He claimed top honors in the episodic competition for Smallville in 2008, and earned another nomination for the series in 2006. Bonvillain has earned two previous ASC nominations, and Bokelberg, Morgenthau, and Tatersall have each been nominated once before. The rest are first-time nominees.

Cragg was previously honored by the ASC with the Conrad L. Hall ASC Heritage Award in 2004, which is presented annually to a student filmmaker.

?This event is a celebration rather than a competition,? says Michael Goi, ASC, chairman of the organization?s Awards Committee. ?We hope it inspires other talented cinematographers to pursue their dreams and fosters a broader appreciation of the unique role that cinematographers play in the collaborative art of filmmaking.?

The ASC was chartered in 1919, with the purpose of advancing the evolving art and craft of telling stories with moving images. There are some 300 ASC members from around the world today, and 150 associate members from allied sectors of the industry.
