The road to the 91st Academy Awards is paved by voting bodies like film critics, the Hollywood Foreign Press and of course the different guilds that put forth the Oscar nominees in each category. This includes the American Society of Cinematographers and the Art Directors Guild. Both aforementioned guilds have released their nominations for their respective 2019 awards ceremony. Again, as is the case with most other guild awards, each one contains nominations for categories outside of film; however, for the sake of this blog, I have included only the film categories.
And the nominees are…
American Society of Cinematographers Award for Theatrical Release
Alfonso Cuarón for “Roma”
Matthew Libatique, ASC for “A Star is Born”
Robbie Ryan, BSC, ISC for “The Favourite”
Linus Sandgren, ASC, FSF for “First Man”
