ASC to Honor DP’s of ‘Carol,’ ‘Rizzoli & Isles,’ ‘The Nice Guys’ and ‘Better Things’

American Society of Cinematographers to recognize Edward Lachman, Ron Garcia, Philippe Rousselot, and Nancy Schreiber

The American Society of Cinematographers has announced the honorees for the 31st annual ASC Awards for Outstanding Achievement.

Edward Lachman, Ron Garcia, Philippe Rousselot, and Nancy Schreiber will be recognized for their contributions to the art of cinematography at the organization’s awards gala on February 4, 2017, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.

Lachman will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. Garcia will be bestowed with the Career Achievement in Television Award. Rousselot will take home the International Award, and Schreiber will keep the Presidents Award.

“The work of these individual cinematographers is varied, yet it all exemplifies a stellar level of achievement,” said ASC president Kees van Oostrum. “As a group, they also are a prime example of great careers in the industry and, over the years, they have set creative standards of the highest order.”

Lachman has photographed over 90 titles in narrative, experimental and documentary forms. He has collaborated with directors such as Todd Haynes, Steven Soderbergh, Robert Altman, Paul Schrader, Todd Solondz, Sofia Coppola, Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders, Volker Schlöndorff, Ulrich Seidl, and Jean-Luc Godard. He copped Academy Award noms for his work with Haynes on “Carol” (2015) and “Far From Heaven” (2002) – and the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce (2011) earned him an Emmy nomination.

Garcia has collected Emmy nominations for “Murder in the Heartland” (1993) and “The Day Lincoln was Shot” (1998), both of which received ASC Award noms. He earned additional nods from his peers in the ASC for Thomas Carter’s “Divas” (1996) and the pilot of “Twin Peaks” (1991).

Rousselot earned an Academy Award for “A River Runs Through It” (1993), as well as an ASC nomination. He was Oscar®-nominated for “Hope and Glory” (1987) and “Henry & June” (1990), with the former also receiving a BSC Award.

Schreiber is a Detroit native who, early in her career, worked as a gaffer on the Academy Award-nominated documentary “The Other Half of the Sky: A China Memoir” for co-directors Shirley MacLaine and Claudia Weill. As a cinematographer, Schreiber’s work includes “Your Friends and Neighbors,” “The Nines,” “Visions of Light,” episodes of ABC’S “The Family,” and the new FX series “Better Things.” She has cinematography at the American Film Institute and, between shooting, continues to guest lecture at film schools.
