Casting a ballot – 33rd ASC Awards

The 33rd American Society of Cinematographers Awards will be handed Saturday, February 9th, 2019.

As I have been doing for a few years, as we get into the awards season, I’ll post the fictional ballots for some of the guild awards, showing what my vote would be if I had one. I will, as a rule, abstain from my fictional vote if I haven’t seen at least half of the nominees. And to be perfectly clear, I’m not a member of any of these guilds and organizations.

The list of nominees can be seen here.

Here it goes:

Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography – Spotlight Award: abstain (Not seen any of the 3 nominees.)

Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography – Theatrical Release: Alfonso Cuarón, for ROMA
There were a pair of beautifully shot Black-and-White films among the nominees, but ultimately Cuarón’s work in ROMA is a bit more interesting then Żal‘s work in Cold War. His camera movements are beautiful, and that, alongside the positioning of the cast within the frame, appear to be informed by a very consistent concept.
