AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CINEMATOGRAPHERS 2015 AWARD NOMINATIONS!


Last year's American Society of Cinematographers nominations missed the Academy's five by just one - they chose Best Picture contender The Imitation Game over the greater cinematographic achievement, Ida. I suspect that this year's nominees, listed below, will follow the same pattern: Bridge of Spies, the Best Picture contender, will make way for The Hateful Eight, the more notable cinematographic achievement. Otherwise, expect a pretty close match. These nominations will be resolved with the ASC's awards on the 14th of February.

Roger Deakins (Sicario)
Janusz Kaminski (Bridge of Spies)
