Anthony Dod Mantle's lensing of Oscar frontrunner "Slumdog Millionaire" took the top honor at the 23rd Annual American Society of Cinematographers Outstanding Achievement Awards on Sunday night at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel.
Mantle -- who a week earlier won the BAFTA Award for cinematography -- led a competitive field that included Roger Deakins, who was double-nominated for "Revolutionary Road" and "The Reader"; Chris Menges, also for "The Reader"; Claudio Miranda for "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"; and Wally Pfister for "The Dark Knight."
During the evening, Pfister presented his longtime collaborator and "Dark Knight" director Chris Nolan with the Asc Board of Governors Award. The award is given in recognition of the recipient's contributions to the art of filmmaking. Nolan and Pfister shot the opening six-minutes and several action sequences of "The Dark Knight" in the 65mm Imax film format, a first for a narrative studio feature. »
