We are still working our way through interpreting today’s BAFTA nominations a bit, but there are more guilds announcing their nominations today, one of them being the American Society of Cinematographers. For some reason, they chose seven nomination this year. An odd number, but it does accommodate for all films that were expected here. Perhaps not expected, but nonetheless very deserving is the nomination for Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmaster (though the nomination is of course for his DP, Philippe Le Sourd). In terms of snubs, one could say Her had a good chance to show up here, but this just doesn’t seem to be its day.
Who of these seven will miss out on the big day? Come discuss these nominations with us in our forums.
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
