For some film fans, the ASC award for achievement in cinematography are among the most important parts of awards season, as they honor the work that too often goes unheralded. This year, a three-way tie in the nominating process means that seven people are nominated instead of five. Given the amount of excellent work done in 2013, that slate of seven nominees means ASC is able to acknowledge more achievements — and yet Hoyte Van Hoytema still didn’t get a nomination for Her.

Those who did score nominations include Roger Deakins, for Prisoners, Philippe Le Sourd, for The Grandmaster, and Bruno Delbonnel, for Inside Llewyn Davis, which breaks a streak of guild awards looking away from the Coen Brothers latest film. Read the full nomination slate below. Read More »
