The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has announced the nominees for all categories of the 33rd Annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards. Winners will be named at the awards gala on February 9 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.
Congratulations from British Cinematographer go to three BSC members nominated for awards – Robbie Ryan BSC ISC for The Favourite (Theatrical Release), Florian Hoffmeister BSC for The Terror and James Friend BSC for Patrick Melrose (both Motion Picture, Miniseries, or Pilot Made for Television). Best of luck to all three.
Four of the ASC nominated cinematographers and their work for the ‘Theatrical Release’ award have either already featured, or are coming soon, to editions of British Cinematographer magazine. Linus Sandgren’s First Man featured in the November 2018 (90) edition, whilst Robbie Ryan’s work on The Favourite, Alfonso Cuarón on Roma and Łukasz Żal’s Cold War all feature in the forthcoming January 2019 (91) issue.
