The American Society of Cinematographers has nominated Emmanuel Lubezki for Children of Men, Dick Pope for The Illusionist, Robert Richardson for The Good Shepherd, Dean Semler for Apocalypto, and Vilmos Zsigmond for The Black Dahlia.
The winner will be announced during the 21st annual ASC Oustanding Achievement Awards gala at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel on Feb. 18.
"These five, amazingly talented individuals were selected by their peers who believe they have set the standard for artful visual story-telling in a sharply competitive field from 2006," said Russ Alsobrook, who chairs the organization's Awards Committee.
This is the eighth ASC nomination for Richardson, the third for Zsigmond, the second for Lubezki and Semler, and the first for Pope.
"Favorable reviews tend to mention beautiful images, but that's a matter of taste," said Daryn Okada, ASC president. "Artful images can be distressing if that's what it takes to properly affect the emotional flow of a film. Our members judge whether the cinematographer helped to create a sense of time and place that pulls the audience into the story." »
