‘Roma,’ ‘A Star Is Born,’ ‘Yellowstone’ Among ASC Cinematography Nominees

The American Society of Cinematographers has announced nominees in film and television for 2018.

Film nominees included Alfonso Cuaron’s digital 65mm black-and-white lensing of his own “Roma,” Linus Sandgren’s multi-format work on Damien Chazelle’s moonshot drama “First Man,” Matthew Libatique for Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born,” Robbie Ryan for Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Favourite” and Lukasz Zal for Pawel Pawlikowski’s “Cold War.”

Cuarón became the second director ever nominated by the ASC for shooting his or her own film. Cary Joji Fukunaga was nominated in the Spotlight Award category for “Beasts of No Nation” in 2016.

Television nominees included Adriano Goldman’s elegant work on Netflix’s “The Crown,” Colin Watkinson and Zoe White’s moody execution on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Ben Richardson’s big-country visuals in Paramount’s “Yellowstone,” and Florian Hoffmeister’s lush lensing of AMC’s “The Terror.”

In the spotlight award category, honoring lesser-seen releases, Joshua James Richards (“The Rider”), Giorgi Shvelidze (“Namme”), and Frank van den Eeden (“Girl”) were recognized.
