The American Society of Cinematographers announced that five directors of photography will vie for the ASC Award in the theatrical motion picture category at the organization’s 29th outstanding achievement awards ceremony, scheduled for Feb. 15 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.
The nominees are:
Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC for Unbroken
Óscar Faura for The Imitation Game
Emmanuel Lubezki ASC, AMC for Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
Dick Pope, BSC for Mr. Turner
Robert Yeoman, ASC for The Grand Budapest Hotel
“These nominees represent a fabulous slate selected from a particularly rich field of work this year,” said ASC president Richard Crudo. “It’s amazing how these cinematographers have once again redefined the boundaries of what we do.”
This is Deakins’ 13th ASC nomination. He previously won for Skyfall (2013), The Shawshank Redemption (1995) and The Man Who Wasn’t There (2002). His other nominations include Fargo (1997), Kundun (1998), O Brother, Where Art Thou?

He was also the recipient of the organization’s lifetime achievement award in 2011.
Lubezki won the ASC Award last year for Gravity. He also took home top honors for The Tree of Life (2012) and Children of Men (2007), and was nominated in 2000 for Sleepy Hollow.
Pope previously earned a nomination for The Illusionist (2007).
These are the first ASC nominations for Faura and Yeoman.
