Mandy Walker Makes History as First Woman to Win Australian Cinematographers Society’s Milli Award

-

Last year, Cinematographer Mandy Walker (Elvis) made history by becoming the first woman in 102 years to win the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Best Feature Film Award, and she now has made further history by becoming the first woman to win the Milli Awards at the Australian Cinematographers Society(ACS) Awards. Both awards for her work shooting Baz Luhrmann‘s Elvis, for which Ms. Walker also received an Oscar and a BAFTA nomination.

“I’m incredibly proud and honored to be the first woman to win this award,” said Walker from the glittering gala at Sydney’s Crystal Palace at Luna Park. “Here’s to all the other glass ceiling breakers who will come after this.”

The Milli Award is the highest award an Australian director of photography can receive from the ACS.
