Harrison Ford honored by cinematographers

Thesp to receive Board of Governors award Feb. 12

Harrison Ford will receive the American Society of Cinematographers’ 2012 Board of Governors Award at the 26th annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards gala on Feb. 12.

Harrison Ford is a talented and focused actor whose professionalism has earned the admiration of our members,” said awards chairman Richard Crudo. “His diverse, and still evolving, body of work includes too many memorable motion pictures to list.”

Ford, who earned an Oscar nomination in 1986 for “Witness,” is currently prepping sci-fi pic “Ender’s Game,” and he will star in “42” as Branch Rickey, the executive who helped shatter Major League Baseball’s color barrier by enabling Jackie Robinson to become the first African-American player.

The ASC Board of Governors Award is given annually to an individual who has made extraordinary achievements to advancing the art and craft of filmmaking. Previous recipients include Julia Roberts, Warren Beatty, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg.
