American Society Of Cinematography nominees

The American Society of Cinematographers announce their 5 nominees for 2010...

Matthew Libatique (Black Swan)
Wally Pfister (Inception)
Danny Cohen (The King’s Speech)
Jeff Cronenweth (The Social Network)
Roger Deakins, ASC (True Grit)

Big omissions- # 1 would be the best cinematography and lighting of the year by the great Robert Richardson on Shutter Island. Not having him on the list is criminal.

This was a very good year for cinematography. I don't get any attention being paid to The Social Network on a technical level. This showering it with nominations in technical categories is lame. Like always all these guilds pick one movie that they clamor over like they don't have a mind for themselves. Just because they have all decided that it's the best movie of the year doesn't automatically put in the cinematography category. I'm sorry, Jeff Crenenweth doesn't have squat on Richardson.
These ACS nominees aren't guaranteed the Oscar nomination though.

Other notable films that could have made the list are 127 Hours, The Ghost Writer, Winter's Bone, The American, Harry Potter & THe Deathly Hallows Part I and Tron:Legacy.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
