The American Society of Cinematographers Nominates The Artist, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,
and The Tree of Life


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), and Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC ([i]The Tree of Life
) have been nominated in the feature film category of the 26th Annual American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Outstanding Achievement Awards. The winner will be announced at the ASC Awards celebration at the Hollywood and Highland Grand Ballroom on February 12.

“These five cinematographers have created works of art that serve the story and director’s vision in unique and engaging ways,” says ASC Awards Committee Chairman Richard Crudo. “Their talent for translating the script and performances to the screen demonstrates the phenomenal power of the visual image.”

This is the second consecutive ASC Award nomination for Cronenweth who was recognized last year for The Social Network.

Richardson earns his 10th nomination. He was previously acknowledged for Inglourious Basterds (2010), The Good Shepherd (2007), The Aviator (2005), Snow Falling on Cedars (2000), The Horse Whisperer (1999), Heaven & Earth (1994), A Few Good Men (1993), JFK (1992), and Born on the Fourth of July (1990).

Lubezki won the ASC Award in 2007 for Children of Men, and was also nominated in 2000 for Sleepy Hollow.

Schiffman and van Hoytema are both first-time ASC nominees.

“Every year, the nominees in this category have expanded the boundaries of cinematography with their consummate artistry and their mastery of the technological tools required to achieve their vision,” says ASC President Michael Goi. “In an intensely competitive field, these are the best of the best.”

Last year, Wally Pfister, ASC, BSC won the ASC feature film award for Inception, and went on to take home the Oscar® as well.

That entire battle scene was outstanding, both visually and aurally. The explosions, gunfire and sheer panic then the baby starts crying and there is total silence....phenomenal.
