Will ‘Game of Thrones’ finally win its first cinematography Emmy with its last episode?

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” made a major splash with a record 32 Emmy nominations in July for its eighth and final season, bringing the show’s ultimate total to 161. One of those 32 bids is for Best One-Hour Single-Camera Cinematography, a category the show has never won. Can it finally do it this year with director of photography Jonathan Freeman, who is nominated for shooting the series finale “The Iron Throne”?

“Thrones” wasn’t able to break into this race until 2013 for its third season, but has since nabbed eight additional noms to become the most nominated show in this category. If anyone can now finally get it across the finish line, it’s Freeman, a three-time Emmy winner for another HBO show, “Boardwalk Empire”, and previous nominee for “Thrones” (in 2014 for the episode “Two Swords”). He’s also won five out of eight times at the American Society of Cinematographer Awards,

The Most Stunning TV Shows That Deserve the Emmy for Cinematography — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: Which series should win for best cinematography at the Emmys? This includes nominated series or anything you think had been snubbed. All genres apply.

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

There are many wonderful nominees in all of the cinematography categories this year, including the work done on “Atlanta’s” exceptional “Teddy Perkins”, “Mozart in the Jungle’s” meditative “Ichi Go Ichi E,” and of course the rapturous “Blue Planet II.” But for me, “Twin Peaks'” “Part 8” towers above them all. Even if you didn’t know what to do with the rest of “Twin Peaks,” or even actively disliked it, “Part 8” stood on its own as an exercise in gorgeous, strange, scary, haunting imagery. The visuals were the thing here — it mattered less what they meant than how you felt when experiencing them.

2018 American Society of Cinematographers Awards winners: Roger Deakins (‘Blade Runner 2049’) wins 4th Asc prize on way to Oscars

The 32nd annual American Society of Cinematographers Awards took place on Feb. 17 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland and were emceed by Turner Classic MoviesBen Mankiewicz. Over the years, the Asc has predicted 128 of the 160 Oscar nominees (80%), including all five of this year’s contenders: Roger Deakins (“Blade Runner 2049”), Bruno Delbonnel (“Darkest Hour”), Dan Laustsen (“The Shape of Water”), Rachel Morrison (“Mudbound”) and Hoyte van Hoytema (“Dunkirk”). But it has only previewed 13 of the last 31 winners of the Oscar for Best Cinematography; that is a a success rate of just 41%.

Deakins, who is the Oscar frontrunner for Best Cinematography, won for the fourth time from 15 bids with the Asc. His previous wins were for “The Shawkshank Redemption” (1994), “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (2001) and “Skyfall” (2012). He has yet to translate any of those victories into an Oscar, where he is 0 for 13.

American Society of Cinematographers Nominates Roger Deakins and Rachel Morrison

The American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) feature film nominees tends to lean toward big-scale movies, and this year is no exception. Their top five include frontrunner Roger Deakins for his stunning visuals in “Blade Runner 2049” as well as Rachel Morrison, who photographed “Mudbound.” Left out were viable but smaller-scale contenders “Call Me By Your Name” and “The Post.”

So far, neither the Asc nor the cinematography branch of the Academy has ever nominated a woman for a feature film. So Morrison’s nomination is a big deal. (Next up for Morrison: Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Black Panther.”) According to a study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film, women made up 5 percent of cinematographers on the top 250 domestic-grossing films in 2016.

Why ‘Fargo’ Is the Craftiest Show on TV and Season 3 Is the Best

Why ‘Fargo’ Is the Craftiest Show on TV and Season 3 Is the Best
In Season 3 of the acclaimed “Fargo” FX anthology series, showrunner Noah Hawley continued to play by the Coen brothers’ rules, but got more ambitious and flexible with a present-day crime drama. It’s still about good and evil, only now in cordial Minnesota, with plenty of parables, strong women and weak men. Yet the result was more satisfying in its craftiness and empathy in trying to bring order out of chaos.

And for its efforts, “Fargo” grabbed another 10 craft nominations (cinematography, which it won last year, three for editing, hairstyling, makeup, music score, sound editing, which it also won last year, and mixing). The work seemed more confident and daring, as it focused on various character pairings. It was about mistaken identities, being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and lots of suffering.

As the murders mounted, however, so did the confusion. Sleazy businessman Varga (nominated David Thewlis) prayed on feuding brothers,

Sci-Fi Emmy Nominees ‘Westworld’ and ‘Stranger Things’ Dominate the Crafts

Sci-Fi Emmy Nominees ‘Westworld’ and ‘Stranger Things’ Dominate the Crafts
Apparently the TV Academy will only go so far in honoring sci-fi when it comes to the below-the-line craft nominations. While HBO’s “Westworld” and Netflix’s “Stranger Things” deservedly snagged 12 and 11 noms, respectively, FX’s “Legion” was totally shut out. That’s right: Noah Hawley’s mind-blowing Marvel superhero deconstruction didn’t get recognition for either Michael Wylie’s eye-popping production design or Dana Gonzales’s experimental cinematography. Perhaps it was too subversive for its own good.

Westworld” Rules

With HBO’s “Game of Thrones” out of the running this season, the void was filled by the brilliant re-imagining of Michael Crichton’s adult theme park. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy wisely took a more graphic and philosophical approach to A.I. The brutal sex and violence definitely tapped a cultural nerve.

It’s about beauty and ugliness in this collision of sci-fi and the western. Paul Cameron’s

‘Legion’ Cinematographer Dana Gonzales Discusses The Visual Influence Of The Series On ‘Fargo’s Third Season

A two-time Emmy nominee, winning last year for his work on Fargo, cinematographer Dana Gonzales shouldn’t be lacking for work anytime soon, if his last few years are any indicator. A close collaborator of Noah Hawley’s, Gonzales jumped from Season 2 of the Emmy-winning Fargo to the set of Legion, and then back to Fargo, producing some of the most fascinating and ambitious visual work seen on television. That visual command is on full display in Legion—complementing the…

The Coen Brothers’ Rules: 4 Filmmaking Practices That Give ‘Fargo’ Its Cinematic Consistency

The Coen Brothers’ Rules: 4 Filmmaking Practices That Give ‘Fargo’ Its Cinematic Consistency
Although the Coen Brothers jump to a new genre with each new film, their approach to filmmaking and story is so distinct it’s nearly become a genre in itself. And what’s most remarkable about Noah Hawley’s limited series ‘Fargo’ on FX isn’t that it’s a clever homage to the filmmaking duo (which it is), or that the show has become its own story universe (it’s that, too).

However, its biggest achievement may be that the show’s visual presentation and cinematic style remains at such a high level of quality and consistency, despite having different directors. Even showrunner Hawley – the show’s principal writer and a creator of FX’s “Legion” – isn’t a consistent presence on set.
