LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7, 2015 - Five directors of photography will vie for the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Award in the theatrical motion picture category at the organization's 29th Outstanding Achievement Awards ceremony. The nominees are:
  • Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC for Unbroken
  • Óscar Faura for The Imitation Game
  • Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC for Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
  • Dick Pope, BSC for Mr. Turner
  • Robert D. Yeoman, ASC for The Grand Budapest Hotel
The winner will be revealed on February 15 during the annual ASC Awards gala at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles. 
 
"These nominees represent a fabulous slate selected from a particularly rich field of work this year," says ASC President Richard Crudo. "It's amazing how these cinematographers have once again redefined the boundaries of what we do."
 
This is Deakins' 13th ASC nomination. He previously won for Skyfall (2013), The Shawshank Redemption (1995) and The Man Who Wasn't There (2002). His other nominations include Fargo (1997), Kundun (1998), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2001), No Country for Old Men (2008), The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2008), Revolutionary Road (2009), The Reader (2009), True Grit (2011) and Prisoners (2014). He was also the recipient of the organization's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. 
 
Lubezki won the ASC Award last year for Gravity. He also took home top honors for The Tree of Life (2012) and Children of Men (2007), and was nominated in 2000 for Sleepy Hollow.  
 
Pope previously earned a nomination for The Illusionist (2007). 
 
These are the first ASC nominations for Faura and Yeoman.
