BIRDMAN, GRAND BUDAPEST, and UNBROKEN Among Nominees for American Society of Cinematographers Awards

     January 7, 2015


The awards nominations keep on coming.  Fresh off today’s batch of somewhat surprising WGA Awards nods, the American Society of Cinematographers have announced the nominees for their awards.  Emmanuel Lubezki unsurprisingly made the cut for his stunning work on Birdman, and it seems almost like a foregone conclusion that he’ll be winning his second Oscar in a row after last year’s Gravity.  The ASC Awards also recognized perennial Oscar bridesmaid Roger Deakins for his reliably breathtaking work on Unbroken, and he may be headed for his 10th Academy Award nomination (still no win though).  The biggest oversights here, in my opinion, are the lack of nods for Bradford Young (Selma, A Most Violent Year) and Robert Elswit (Inherent Vice, Nightcrawler), who both pulled double duty this year to phenomenal results.  Though I have a feeling Young will get into the Oscar race for Selma.
