If you need more proof that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is insane, look no further than Roger Deakins.  Deakins is one of the greatest cinematographers of all-time, and before this year, he had racked up nine Oscar nominations without ever taking home the statue.  He picked up his tenth nomination this year for Skyfall, and tonight he won the Feature Film Award from the American Society of Cinematographers.  It was his third award from the Asc after having won in 1995 for The Shawkshank Redemption and in 2002 for The Man Who Wasn't There.  He also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Asc in 2011.  Oscar prognosticators are still putting Life of Pi as the favorite to win Best Cinematography, but perhaps tenth time will be the charm for Deakins. Hit the jump for the press release.  The 85th Academy Awards will be held on February 24th at 7pm Est on ABC. »
