Cinematographers to honor three

Kirkland, O'Shea and Seale draw ASC awards

A trio of lensers — John Seale, Michael O’Shea and Douglas Kirkland — will receive special honors at the American Society of Cinematographers’ 25th Outstanding Achievement Awards Feb. 13 at the Century Plaza hotel in Los Angeles.

Seale will receive the ASC Intl. Award, presented annually to a non-U.S. lenser to recognize achievements in films produced for global cinema. The Aussie artisan was an Outback cowboy before entering film via docu work. He received Oscar noms for “Witness,” “Rain Man” and “Cold Mountain” and won the statuette for “The English Patient.”

The ASC career achievement in television nod will go to O’Shea, who won an Emmy for “CSI: Miami” in 2003 and noms for episodic series “Doogie Howser, M.D.” in 1992 and “Relativity” in 1997 and for the TV movies “To Love, Honor and Deceive” in 1997 and “The ’60s” in 1999.

Still photographer Kirkland will take home the ASC Presidents Award for significant contributions to the art. His work includes portraits of celebs like Jack Nicholson, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Brigitte Bardot, Judy Garland, Sophia Loren and Charlie Chaplin. He also photographed the production of more than 100 motion pictures, including “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “Out of Africa” and “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

“John, Michael and Douglas still have their best years ahead of them,” said ASC Awards Committee chair Richard Crudo, “but they have earned and deserve this recognition.”
