2017 American Society of Cinematographers Award Nominations Announced!

The 31st Annual ASC Award Nominations have been announced and it’s a wall of pedigree titles in the mix this year for the theatrical release category with Lion, Moonlight, Silence, La La Land and Arrival all getting gongs. Expect all those films to nab a Best Picture Oscar nomination and, most likely, they will make up the Best Cinematography category as well.

The Spotlight Award sees House of Others, Childhood of a Leader, Tempestad and Mon Ange get recognised.

My tips in red!
