'The Artist,' 'The Tree of Life' among ASC cinematography nominees
Robert Richardson received his 10th nomination Wednesday morning for the American Society of Cinematographers feature film award for "Hugo." Among his previous nominations were 1989's "Born on the Fourth of July" and 1994's "The Aviator."
Jeff Cronenweth, who was nominated last year for the ASC Award for "The Social Network," earned another nod for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." And Emmanuel Lubezki, who has already won numerous critical honors for "The Tree of Life," picked up his third ASC nomination for the Terrence Malick epic. He won the award five years ago for "Children of Men."
Rounding out the nominees are two newcomers: Guillaume Schiffman for "The Artist" and Hoyte van Hoytema for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy."
The 26th annual American Society of Cinematographers Outstanding Achievement Awards will be given out Feb. 12 at a ceremony at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland.
