The American Society of Cinematographers on Tuesday unveiled nominations for its 36th annual ASC Awards, honoring the year’s best in feature film, documentary and television cinematography.

It’s worth noting that for the purposes of this largely movie-themed site, we are only going to go over the categories that mostly focus on feature film cinematography. If you’d like to check out the entire list of nominees for this year’s ASC Awards, the link will be posted at the end of the article.

Also, if you’re interested in these guild awards for Oscar prediction research, then you might find this interesting: The ASC film winner historically goes on to win the Oscar about half the time — 16 times in the past 35 years.
