Deakins, Miranda among American Cinematographer Society nominees

Steve Chagollan of Variety has the report on the American Society of Cinematographers’ feature film nominations:

The d.p.’s for “Anna Karenina,” “Les Miserables,” “Life of Pi,” “Lincoln” and “Skyfall” were nominated by the American Society of Cinematographers’ feature film category for the org’s 27th annual awards gala, being held Feb. 10 at the Hollywood & Highland Grand Ballroom

Roger Deakins’ nomination for “Skyfall” reps the first time a James Bond film has ever been nominated for an ASC award (the franchise also has never received Oscar recognition beyond effects and music categories), a distinction that might have something to do with Deakins’ stature within the ASC, which has granted him two competitive kudos, 11 nominations and a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011.

“Lincoln’s” Janusz Kaminski, who has worked with Steven Spielberg dating back to 1993’s “Schindler’s List,” has been nominated by the ASC four times prior without winning, but has two Oscars — an award that has eluded Deakins despite nine nominations from the Academy.

Danny Cohen, cited for “Les Miserables,” was previously recognized by the ASC for “The King’s Speech,” while Seamus McGarvey (“Anna Karenina”) and Claudio Miranda (the 3-D “Life of Pi”) were previously ASC-nominated for “Atonement” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” respectively. The Academy mirrored those previous nominations with one of their own.

“The films our members have nominated are visually distinctive, and very diverse: a theatrical epic, a grand musical, an imaginative 3-D fable, a sweeping biographical drama, and a stylish spy thriller,” said ASC president Stephen Lighthill in a statement. “What they all have in common is that each project’s cinematographer contributed captivating visuals that enhanced and elevated the storytelling.”

Conspicuous omissions include Mihai Malaimare’s 65 mm lensing of Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master,” Andrew Lesnie’s innovative yet controversial 48-frames-per-second visuals on Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and the work of ASC fave Robert Richardson (10 previous noms) for Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.”

Among the critics groups, Miranda and Deakins have been the leaders.
