'Gravity,' 'Llewyn Davis' Among ASC's 7 Nominees For Best Cinematography

The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has announced their nominations for the 28th Annual ASC Awards for Outstanding Achievement. The group offered 7 nominees this year, thanks to a three-way tie in voting that boosted it beyond the usual 5. The nominees are:

• Sean Bobbitt, BSC for “12 Years a Slave”
• Barry Ackroyd, BSC for “Captain Phillips”
• Philippe Le Sourd for “The Grandmaster”
• Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC for “Gravity”
• Bruno Delbonnel, ASC, AFC for “Inside Llewyn Davis”
• Phedon Papamichael, ASC for “Nebraska”
• Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC for “Prisoners”

The past two years, the ASC has gone 4 for 5 as far as predicting the Oscar nominees for best cinematography goes. Though each year the winners have been different between the organizations. “Skyfall” and “The Tree of Life” won with the ASC, while “Hugo” and “Life of Pi” won Oscars, respectively.

Notably, his year’s nomination brings Deakins’ total to 12. He won last year for “Skyfall,” and previously for “The Shawshank Redemption” (1995) and “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (2002). He’s yet to win an Oscar.

The winner will be revealed at the awards ceremony on February 1, at the Hollywood & Highland Ray Dolby Ballroom.
