‘Blade Runner,’ ‘Mudbound,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Land ASC Cinematography Nominations

The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has revealed nominations in film and television categories for 2017.

In the theatrical fields, three-time ASC winner Roger Deakins was nominated for “Blade Runner 2049” alongside Bruno Delbonnel for “Darkest Hour,” Hoyte van Hoytema for “Dunkirk,” Dan Laustsen for “The Shape of Water” and Rachel Morrison for “Mudbound.”

With her nomination, Morrison becomes the first female DP to ever be nominated by the group. If she is recognized by the film Academy, she’ll also become the first female cinematographer ever nominated for an Oscar.

The lineup is nearly an all-digital one, with the IMAX photography of “Dunkirk” carrying the torch for celluloid alone. It also closely aligns with the British Academy’s nominees in the category, announced Tuesday morning. (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was recognized there in lieu of “Mudbound.”)

The ASC also revealed its Spotlight Award nominees. The category was instituted in 2013 ago to shine light on under-seen independent films and gems from the festival circuit. Winners have included “House of Others,” “Macbeth,” “Son of Saul” and “Concrete Night” and “Ida.”

Nominees for the Spotlight Award this year included two prizewinners from last year’s Camerimage festival in Poland: Golden Frog winner Máté Herbai for “On Body and Soul” and Silver Frog winner Mikhail Krichman for “Loveless.” Mart Taniel was also nominated, for “November.”

On the television side, both HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and SyFy’s “12 Monkeys” double-dipped with a pair of nominations each. Other nominees included “The Man in the High Castle,” “The Crown,” “Outlander,” “Legion,” “The Originals,” “Gotham,” “The Deuce,” “Sometimes the Good Kill,” “Genius,” “Training Day” and “Mindhunter.”

The nominations were revealed at the ASC’s annual Nominees Luncheon at the ASC Clubhouse in Hollywood. Winners will be announced at the 32nd annual ASC Awards on Saturday, Feb. 17.
