Jewison feted with ASC governors nod

Lensers bestow honor on non-cinematographers

Director-producer Norman Jewison has been tapped to receive the American Society of Cinematographers Board of Governors Award.

The honor — the only recognition ASC gives exclusively to those who are not cinematographers — is awarded for “significant and enduring impression on the art of filmmaking.” It will be presented Feb. 16 at the 17th Annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

“Norman Jewison is a complete filmmaker who is creating an extraordinary body of work,” said Owen Roizman, chairman of the org’s awards committee. “His films range from dark and intense dramas to uplifting fantasies and musicals produced for both television and cinema release. The common denominator is that he always touches your heart and soul.”

Jewison received Oscar noms for directing “In the Heat of the Night,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Moonstruck.” He also produced “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “A Soldier’s Story” and “Moonstruck,” which were nominated for best picture Oscars.

In 1999, he received the Irving B. Thalberg Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

“Norman Jewison is a consummate artist with unique sensibilities for visual storytelling,” said ASC prexy Steven Poster. “He has an instinct for recognizing talent and bringing the best out of everyone who collaborates with him.”
