I got to thinking about this, and realized that I can't recall a documentary ever being even nominated for an Oscar or ASC award (please correct me if I'm wrong here).

Why do you suppose docs don't get as much if any consideration here? Is there something in the rules, or is it just because so few docs get theatrical premieres, and of those, even fewer stand out for their camerawork.

But I can certainly think of a few that warrant consideration in the past. Having seen "Baraka" on both blu-ray and a 70mm print struck from the OCN, I can say that it is one of the three or four most beautiful films I've ever seen...and the best of the decade. I've always been rather stunned this film didn't get a nomination for the cinematography.
