Emmanuel Lubezki is earning serious kudos from his peers…
The Mexican cinematographer has been nominated for an ASC Award from the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) in the theatrical motion picture for Outstanding Achievement.
Lubezki, a previous winner 2012’s The Tree of Life and 2007’s Children of Men, earned the recognition for lensing Alfonso Cuarón’s international hit film Gravity, which has been hailed as “one of the most technologically impressive films to ever see the light of day” by nofilmschool.com.
Here’s a look at all the nominees:
• Sean Bobbitt, BSC for 12 Years a Slave
• Barry Ackroyd, BSC for Captain Phillips
• Philippe Le Sourd for The Grandmaster
• Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC for Gravity
• Bruno Delbonnel, ASC, AFC for Inside Llewyn Davis
• Phedon Papamichael, ASC for Nebraska
• Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC for Prisoners
The winner will be revealed at the awards ceremony on February 1, at the Hollywood & Highland Ray Dolby Ballroom.
“Our members believe these cinematographers have set the contemporary standard for artful, theatrical motion picture cinematography,” says ASC President Richard Crudo. “They have mastered a complex craft which contributes vitally to the storytelling process, and augments the intentions of everyone involved with the production.”
Traditionally, the organization selects five nominees, but a three-way tie this year boosts that number to seven.
In addition to his two previous wins, Lubezki was also nominated in 2000 for Sleepy Hollow.
