Today, the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) announced their nominees for Best Cinematography of 2011.  Nominations went to Guillaume Schiffman, (The Artist), Jeff Cronenweth (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Robert Richardson (Hugo), Hoyte van Hoytema (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), and Emmanuel Lubezki (The Tree of Life).  The most notable snub is leaving out Janusz Kaminski for War Horse, and it looks like Steven Spielberg‘s movie is just about finished in the Oscar race after having also missed nominations from the Directors Guild and Writers Guild.  I would also say the ASC snubbed Roger Deakins for Rango, but I never really expected them to be open-minded enough to acknowledge an animated movie for Best Cinematography.

The ASC winner will be announced February 12th.  The ASC victor usually lines up with the Oscar winner. [Correction: /Film's Russ Fischer informs me that Kaminski couldn't have been nominated because he resigned from the society years ago.]

    ” OHHHHHH WHAT?! I DIDN’T KNOW DEAKINS DID RANGO! GOLDBERG YOU KNEW THIS SINCE MARCH? YOU’RE ONE SMART MAN! ALWAYS AHEAD OF US WHO ARE MERE MORTALS”

    I’m always a little annoyed by the talk of snubs around award season. Since there’s only 5 nominees, then obviously the ASC can’t nominate every film with great cinematography. I would say all of those were deserving of the nomination.

    I think we should come up with a list of every film in 2011 with good cinematography and say each one got snubbed.

    Thank goodness Dragon tattoo got in there, one of the most gourgeously photographed films ive seen in a while.

    He resigned in 2006 but was still nominated in 2007 for Diving Bell and the Butterfly so I think Russ is incorrect

    You don’t need to be a member of the ASC to get nominated. Hoyte van Hoytema and Guillaume Schiffman are not ASC members (at least yet), nor was Christian Berger who won in 2010.
